This week, UrbanTurf rounds up a few options for homes in DC that fit into a $950,000-$975,000 budget.
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
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: Two

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
Over in Columbia Heights, this brand new condo occupies the top two floors of a renovated rowhouse. The open concept living area has a bay window and centers around the sleek kitchen, finished in beige tones with a waterfall marble island/breakfast bar, a tiled backsplash from counter-to-ceiling, and a refrigerator integrated into the cabinetry. 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.
