This edition of What X Buys highlights three options in Northwest DC for prospective homebuyers with a roughly $1.25 million budget.
A Sandstone Rowhouse in Strivers' Section
In some ways, this 1,800 square-foot rowhouse offers a slice of history, with its ties to renowned orator and abolitionist Frederick Douglass and its place in DC's Strivers' Section, once an enclave for middle- and upper-class Black families around the turn of the 20th century. The interior, renovated by interior designer Ernesto Santalla, is very contemporary, earning the property a feature in Dwell magazine. An L-shaped kitchen sits at the back of the main level and has lacquered stacked cabinetry that conceals the fridge; a dining and seating area are along the opposite wall. On the second level, a sitting room fits into the bay window at the front, while the owner's bedroom suite has a glass pane door which opens up to a juliet balcony between similarly-sized windows. The house also has a garage door-accessible rear parking pad.

A Redeveloped Five-Bedroom in 16th Street Heights
Redeveloped by Bridge Management Holdings, this 16th Street Heights house has open sightlines throughout the main level, highlighting its spacious chef's kitchen. The L-shaped kitchen has generous cabinetry, as well as a gas stove beneath a hood and a pot-filler spout, an electric mounted oven, under-cabinet floor lighting, and a pantry behind a barn door. One owner's bedroom option sits beneath an extra-tall slanted ceiling, a floating fireplace surrounded by stone and beneath a clerestory window. The lower level has two bedrooms, a full bathroom, a kitchenette with wine fridge, and access to the backyard, which is fenced off from a two-car parking pad.

A Contemporary Carriage House Off Logan Circle
This Logan Circle carriage house was renovated just last year. There are herringbone-patterned floors throughout, including in the living area/kitchen where four nearly floor-to-ceiling gridded windows are along a wall adjacent to glass pane French doors, next to two matching windows, that open onto a balcony. The owner's suite has a pair of the same gridded windows occupying most of the far wall, a walk-in closet, and separate access to the balcony. The main level bedroom also has a walk-in closet and a marble-walled shower stall. The house enjoys a private roof deck a step above a turf area.
