For this installment of What X Buys, UrbanTurf offers some options for prospective homebuyers in the DC area with a $875,000 budget.
A Wood-Filled Cottage on a Wooded Lot
Located in the Rollingwood neighborhood of Chevy Chase, the first owner of this cottage-like house was early National Park Service director Arthur Demaray. The three-bedroom is on a heavily-wooded lot and incorporates wood doors, molding and wood-paneling throughout several of the rooms. This aesthetic is especially prominent in the living room, where finished beams span the pitched ceiling, a pair of built-in units flank a fireplace, and wood paneling covers the walls. Finished in shades of white, the formal dining room has a pair of built-in shelving/cabinet units on either side of the window. The expansive finished basement is largely a blank slate and also has a separate den. The house also has a spacious covered rear porch and an interior garage.

1,700 Square Feet in Eastern Market
This two-bedroom house sits on a brick-sidewalked street near Eastern Market, with red brick steps leading through garden areas to the front door. The living room has parquet hardwoods and shares a double-sided fireplace with the formal dining room, which has contrasting traditional hardwood floors. A pass-through window peeks into the kitchen, which has subway-tiled walls, under-counter lighting and access to a rear deck overlooking a deck and a deep yard with a garden-bordered fence. The owner's bedroom has floating wood beams and a 13-foot vaulted ceiling peaking above a loft area, with an exposed brick panel fireplace traversing both levels. The second bedroom has a private balcony, and the landing between the rooms creates a spacious den area with exposed brick. The house also has a brick-paved parking pad.
