Three Bedrooms and Two Yards in Northeast

Surprising as it may seem, one can still afford a move-in ready three-bedroom home in the District on this budget. This semi-detached home lies just east of the Anacostia River a few blocks south of Nannie Helen Burroughs Avenue. Living and dining areas run the length of the left side of the house, while a petite kitchen nook is tucked away at the rear, leading out to a deck overlooking the backyard. Two bedrooms share a bathroom upstairs, and an additional bedroom and full bath are on the lower level with a rec room and laundry area.

1,000 Square Feet and Four Balconies

At Harbour Square, two blocks from Waterfront Metro station, this one-bedroom corner co-op offers over 1,000 square feet of space. The large open living area has a full balcony with views of the Washington Monument on one wall and two juliet balconies on the other. A bright, all-white U-shaped kitchen has an integrated electric cooktop and a subway-tiled backsplash and countertops. The bedroom has three closets and a reverse juliet balcony, with the guardrail inside the room rather than past the doors. While the mortgage may be affordable, at nearly $1,200 per month, the coop fees rival the monthly payments.
