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.
