An Affordable Five-Bedroom in Mount Rainier

Just inside Maryland sits a house that is practically a unicorn a couple of blocks away inside the District — a five-bedroom detached house that is priced for less than $400,000. The three-story bungalow was renovated in 2015 and operates with all-electric appliances and hook-ups. A one-wall kitchen has a nook with the sink, a breakfast bar and additional cabinetry separating the room from the open living and dining areas. Two of the sunny bedrooms have double exposure, while the pitched-roof attic serves as the master suite, maximizing the entirety of the space on the level to create a sit-in closet/dressing room at one end of the story. The basement also has a full bedroom and full bath.

A Bloomingdale Rowhouse with Rental

This Victorian rowhouse has all the trappings associated with the Bloomingdale neighborhood, from the bay windows to ornately-tiled fireplaces with mirrored and columned mantels and restored hardwoods with inlaid borders. A leaded-glass arched transom window announces the address beneath the brick archway, opening into an entry hall with exposed brick that leads to a generous foyer with a family room and formal dining room on either side. The master bedroom also has an exposed brick wall and enjoys the bay window, but other bedrooms also have interesting features like built-in shelving and near double-height ceiling with stacked pairs of windows. The basement is a separately-metered two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment with a recommended rent of $2,000 per month.

  • Bedrooms: Six
  • Bathrooms: 4.5
