An 80’s House With Solar Panels and Office Space

While this Chevy Chase home doesn’t appear to have any windows from the front, the long footprint reveals plentiful glass doors and windows all along the sides. Perhaps the most notable features of the Belt Road listing are the home’s solar panels. When the home generates more energy than it can use, it actually returns energy to the PEPCO grid. Adding to the intrigue of the listing is a professional office in the back of the house, with a studio, waiting room, reception hall and large office space.

  • Full listing: 5320 Belt Road NW (map)
  • Price: $879,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Year Built: 1980
  • Listing Agent: Lenora Steinkamp, Long and Foster

Affordable Family-Sized Home in Woodridge

For those who want a reasonably priced house with a lawn inside the DC borders, Woodridge is a good option. This listing is an example of one such family-friendly home. The three-bedroom is located on the corner of a quiet block, and has a wraparound porch, renovated interior and sizable kitchen. The sticker price is just south of $500,000, although in this market, there is no telling what the final price will be.

  • Full listing: 3101 South Dakota Avenue NE (map)
  • Price: $499,900
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1928
  • Listing Agent: Suzanne DesMarais, Keller Williams Capital Properties

Beaux Arts Condo in Kalorama

At an even lower price point is this listing, a one-bedroom in Kalorama. The top floor condo has a few charming Beaux Arts features, like French glass doors in the living room, radiant heat, an elegant foyer and well-kept hardwood floors. The galley kitchen is tight, but the unit comes with a parking space and a large storage unit.

  • Full listing: 2227 20th Street NW, #502 (map)
  • Price: $399,000
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Square Footage: 745
  • HOA Fees: $369 per month
