What $950,000 to $975,000 Buys in DC: Figure 1

Traditional Charm Tucked off U Street

Located on a hidden single-block street parallel to the U Street Corridor, this rowhouse exudes neighborhood charm. Past the front door, which is under a semi-circular stained glass transom that announces the house number, the three-bedroom home retains a traditional layout. To the left, the living room has a bay window with stained glass transoms on all three sides and two exposed brick walls, one of which has a fireplace at the base. Wooden pocket doors announce the adjacent dining room, which also has a fireplace with an exposed brick interior. The level ends in an L-shaped kitchen with access to the rear patio that, with alleyway garage door access, could double as a parking pad. The house also has a partially-finished basement with separate rear exit.

  • Price: $955,000

A Brookland Manor

Blocks away from the Monroe Street Market strip, this stately red brick Colonial offers a surprising amount of space, both with its 3,200 square-foot interior and the surrounding lot. The family room just inside has a white brick fireplace and a door to a small office/sitting room with double exposure and an exposed brick accent wall. Next is a dining room with built-in cabinets and a bright kitchen with a subway-tiled accent wall, farmhouse-style cabinetry and a small marble breakfast island. The kitchen also leads out to a screened-in porch. The master suite occupies the entire top floor, while the lower level has a rec room and the fifth bedroom. Especially impressive is the outdoor space, with a multi-tiered backyard and a side patio with concentric circles of brick.

The Penthouse in a Renovated Rowhouse

Along with the powder room, two of the bedrooms share a bath on the first level. The upstairs landing creates a sitting area with two closets and a huge tripartite accordion glass door that opens onto a private roof terrace. Closets also line the hall to the master bedroom, which has access to a second private terrace.
