For this edition of What X Buys, UrbanTurf rounds up some possibilities for prospective homebuyers in the DC area in the $1.4 million range.


2,100 Square Feet in Capitol Hill

Around the corner from Garfield Park on Capitol Hill is this four-bedroom rowhouse. The living room has a narrow bay window and an angled wall-hanging fireplace beneath a floating mantel. Past the stairs, the kitchen also has floating shelves above a wine fridge, and a farmhouse basin sink set into a breakfast bar peninsula; the dining area beyond houses the backdoor and a half-bath. Upstairs, the owner's bedroom has a barn door that conceals a walk-through closet leading to an en-suite bath with double sink opposite a frameless glass shower stall. The lower level has a rec room with wet bar and bay window, a full bath, and a bedroom with a deep alcove cut out of one wall, next to the backdoor with stairs up to the rear brick patio and shed.

Arts and Crafts in Chevy Chase

A block from the DC border, a flagstone path leads up to this recently-renovated Chevy Chase arts and crafts house. The interior is reminiscent of a split-level, with an elevated sitting room to the right of the entry, and on the other side past the stairs, a bonus room/bedroom with bay window. A few steps down, the living room has built-in shelving and cabinets flanking the fireplace. On the other side of the back doors, the eat-in kitchen has tiled floors matching its backsplash, a breakfast bar island, and a dining nook with triple exposure. A laundry room/mudroom around the corner provides interior access to the garage. Upstairs, the owner's bedroom has double exposure, a walk-in closet/dressing room, and an en-suite bath with spa tub and shower nook on either side of a double sink surrounded by cabinetry.

The open living room abuts the kitchen and has built-in shelving along the wall surrounding the gas fireplace.

The lower level has hardwood flooring, a rec room with a slate panel fireplace and recessed shelf, and a bedroom and full bath. The backyard has a patio, a shed, and tall trees along the fence line.
