The latest edition of What X Buys takes a look at three DC-area options within a $900,000 budget.


A Tiled Two-Bedroom in a Former Warehouse

In a converted warehouse hidden off the 14th Street Corridor, this two-bedroom ground-floor unit has its own brick patio framed with privacy shrubs. The loft-like two-bedroom has travertine tile floors throughout, and the galley kitchen has traditional and glass-front cabinets, dark granite countertops, and decorative metal grates. The dining area has gridded windows occupying most of a wall, and is open to the living area which has a fireplace. French doors lead into the owner's bedroom suite, which is spacious enough for a seating area and also houses the laundry closet and a deep walk-in closet lined with shelving. The unit also has separate access to the garage where there is an assigned parking space.
