For this edition of What X Buys, UrbanTurf explores what prospective buyers can purchase with $600,000 around the DC area. 


A Compact Columbia Heights Townhouse 

Complete with exposed brick and private parking, this compact townhome checks a lot of boxes. The new owner will be greeted with a bright blue painted brick exterior, concrete patio and landscaped garden area. On the main floor, the natural wood floors pair well with an exposed brick wall that runs the length of the open concept living space. Upstairs, the primary bedroom includes closet space with mirror doors, built-in shelving and tall ceilings with exposed brick and wood planking. An additional upstairs room could serve as an office. Out back, a long grassy yard leads to a parking spot accessible from the back alleyway. A fun fact about the listing is that historical townhomes like this one were built to house foundry workers who were employed nearby.
