For this edition of What X Buys, UrbanTurf rounds up some options for prospective DC-area homebuyers who have a budget of $1.2 million.
White-Washed Bricks and Quite a Sunroom in Georgetown
In Georgetown, the whitewashed brick that composes the exterior of this semi-detached Victorian is echoed in its interior. The washed brick creates an accent panel surrounding the fireplace in the living room, where built-in shelving and cabinetry line the wall on either side and the bay window enjoys a large built-in bench seat. The kitchen also has an exposed brick accent wall and built-in glass shelving encased in a picture window. One of the more interesting rooms in the home is a skylit sunroom on the main level that has a fireplace and wood-paneled walls. The master bedroom has a bay window seating area, and the lower level has a bonus room that can serve as a fourth bedroom. The house also has a wooden roof deck with treetop views of the neighborhood.

More Bonus Space and Built-Ins in Bethesda
Just blocks into Bethesda, this stone house sits on a landscaped lawn a short walk from the Crescent Trail and Westmoreland Park. To the left off the entry foyer, the living room has a fireplace and a wall of built-in shelving surrounding a window seat. Next is a sunroom with painted brick walls, leading out to the rear deck and a manicured lawn with separate patio area. The main level has a formal dining room with original built-in cabinet and an office that, with its en-suite bath and closet, can also serve as a fourth bedroom. The upstairs landing has a bonus sitting area shared by the second bedroom and the master bedroom, which has a cove ceiling and two closets. The lower level was a recent excavation that enjoys full-sized windows, a guest suite, and a family room with exposed brick wall.
