Under $250,000 in Columbia Heights

With an asking price under $250,000, this studio is located two blocks from the Columbia Heights Metro station. The condo fees are also on the low end of the spectrum, at $143 per month. The layout of the main living area appears to be a rectangle, with space for a bedroom and a living room on opposite ends. The kitchen is off to the side, and a hallway likely leads to a bathroom and laundry room. The unit has a lot of light, and a couple doors open up to a balcony.

  • Price: $245,000
  • Bedrooms: Studio

Restored Cape Cod in Kent With a Stone Patio

This Cape Cod has been restored and has a new kitchen and bathroom, but maintains much of the original detailing. With only 1,359 square feet, a few of the four bedrooms are quite small, and some have sloping ceilings to further increase the coziness. But we liked a few of the extra rooms, including a cave-like family room and a sunroom that leads out to a fairly spacious stone patio.

  • Full listing: 5040 Klingle Street NW (map)
  • Price: $995,000
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Year Built: 1940
  • Listing Agent: Tessa Morris, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty

1920s Farmhouse in Alexandria

Just a bit smaller in size than the option above, this 1920s Alexandria farmhouse is also well-maintained, though a bit more modest on the interior. The bedrooms are also tight. However, a finished basement adds breathing room, and perhaps the best part of the home is outdoors: the generous and shady backyard is manicured, surrounded by trees and has at least three different seating areas.
