Condo Alternative in Capitol Hill

For those who want a rowhouse but not necessarily a lot of square footage, this modest two-bedroom on the eastern side of Capitol Hill might be an option. The 1,020-square foot house is narrow, but the open living and dining area is comfortable, with exposed brick walls and an attractive staircase with a dark wooden banister entering the space. For the price and size of a condo, the owners can also enjoy a small backyard area.

  • Full listing: 1235 K Street SE (map)
  • Price: $435,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Year Built: 1925
  • Listing Agent: Bonnie Roberts-Burke, Evers & Company Real Estate

Ample Storage in South Adams Morgan

This condo is located near the intersection of 18th Street NW, Florida Avenue, and U Street, a central location that is close to Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan and the 14th Street Corridor (and the UrbanTurf headquarters). The listing itself is bright and compactly laid out, with the living room opening directly onto both the kitchen and bedroom. The galley kitchen is tight, but provides sufficient countertop area, and the bedroom has a full wall of closet space.

  • Full listing: 1820 T Street NW #3 (map)
  • Price: $399,000
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 1918
  • HOA Fees: $165
  • Listing Agent: Loic Pritchett, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty

Stately Chevy Chase Colonial

While many renovated homes now have open floor plans where rooms merge into each other, this Chevy Chase colonial embraces a layout with distinct rooms. The living room, dining room and kitchen are connected by simple doorways, and an addition to the house created a sunroom, with three walls of windows, overlooking the backyard. The finished lower level has a carpeted hanging out area, as well as a more intense gym, with a hard floor and mirrors on the walls.

    Stately? It's just a nice normal house. Broker Babble really is ridiculous.

    This "stately" colonial would go fir 150,000 to 300,000 max in Kentucky and would include an actual yard lol Only in pretentious cities like DC do people find it acceptable to spend so much money for such mediocrity.
