What $750K Buys You in DC

by Rebecca Ortega

In What X Buys You this week, we take a look at properties on the market in the $750,000 range to give readers an idea of what type of home this price point offers in DC.

Renovated Three-Bedroom Row Home Between Dupont and Georgetown


Renovated earlier this year, 2152 Newport Place NW is a three-bedroom, two-bath Federal row home on a tree-lined street between Dupont Circle and Georgetown. As is typical for the neighborhood, square footage comes at a premium, but the renovations, including an updated galley kitchen with plenty of storage and a finished basement level with a full bath, justify the list price. The second and third bedrooms on the upper level are a bit on the small side, and the property does not include a parking space in a neighborhood where street parking is scarce. That said, it does have an outdoor deck/patio that offers a good place to entertain. For the full listing, click here.

  • Price: $749,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,250

Two-Unit Capitol Hill Property Near Stanton Park


441 10th Street NE is an unusual two-unit listing in Capitol Hill as the property’s rental unit is on the top level rather than in the basement. The owner’s unit of the property has two bedrooms and full bath on the first floor and a family room with built-ins, and another bedroom and full bath on the lower level. The rental unit on the upper level has one bedroom and a full bath and a private entrance off of a deck. (Last year, the rental unit took in $1,695/month.) Each floor of the property has a fireplace and there is a small patio in the back of the house, but like the listing above, the asking price does not include a parking space. For the full listing, click here.

Three-Bedroom Palisades Home With Potential


Situated on a large lot, this Palisades home does not have a lot of square footage, but it is located in a sought-after neighborhood in DC. It has two bedrooms on the upper level along with a full bathroom, and a main-level bedroom that may be better suited as a library or den. The basement is partially finished and includes a second full bathroom. The main level has a kitchen that is small but features new appliances, and there are also small formal dining and living room areas on this level. The home has a brick patio and a spacious yard, but both are in need of attention (like other aspects of the house), and prospective buyers should keep that in mind when considering this property for purchase. For the full listing, click here.

    Interesting config on the Capitol Hill home. I suspect you can get much more in rent from a second floor rental unit than from a dark, musty, basement unit.

    I’m surprised you didn’t include unit 501 The Flats at Union Row as one of your selections.  GREAT 1300 square feet condo with 2 beds/2 baths, a balcony, and private LARGE roof terrace. Includes garage parking and only a block from the metro and U street.  Do you only spotlight your own listings?
