What $825K Buys You in DC

by Rebecca Ortega

In What X Buys You this week, we look at properties in the $825,000 range to give readers an idea as to what type of home this price point offers in DC.

Note: Two of the three properties have received offers in the last 48 hours.

Five-Bedroom Mount Pleasant Row House With English Basement


1864 Monroe Street NW is a five-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom semi-detached row home in Mount Pleasant. The property stands out for the fact that it has both a multitude of decks and a two-car garage, an uncommon amenity in the neighborhood. The interior offers some interesting touches like a fireplace at the top of the stairs to the second level, a separate sitting area in the master suite, and an eat-in breakfast bar in the kitchen. The kitchen could use some updating, but the property also includes a rentable English basement with separate entrance. For the full listing, click here.

A Family House in Glover Park


3928 Benton Street NW is a four-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom home in Glover Park. It features a newly renovated kitchen, large master suite and renovated, basement-level in-law suite which could be rented or used as either a rec room or extra bedroom. The home also has a few outdoor spaces including a front porch, a deck, and a patio which could also be used as off-street parking for one car. Two of the three bedrooms (aside from the master bedroom) are small, but are a good size for children or for use as an office. For the full listing, click here.

Three-Bedroom Palisades Home With Room to Grow


This three-bedroom, two-bath home in Palisades sits on 7,123 grassy square feet, a good deal of extra space for those looking to eventually make additions. The interior and exterior are dated, but the house does feature an open layout, hardwood floors throughout, and a working fireplace, along with one covered off-street parking space. It will take additional funds to get the property to up to modern standards, but it’s a good buy for those looking to expand. Also, the schools are quite good in Palisades, a plus for buyers with young families. For the full listing, click here.

    Great Mount Pleasant house. Not surprised it is already under contract.

  1. Terry said at 2:56 pm on Wednesday September 15, 2010:

    I noticed the square footage for these listings are quite large… in fact they rival that of my parents hideously sprawling suburban ‘mcmansion’... Does D.C. count the basement when calculating square footage?

  1. BDR said at 4:53 pm on Wednesday September 15, 2010:

    square footage for dc houses is usually provided via tax records and does include basement sf if it is finished.

    another $835,000 property worth checking out for those that missed out on those above is this Dupont listing:
