For this edition of What X Buys, UrbanTurf takes a look at three DC-area options for homeowners looking to spend up to $900,000.
A Restored Bloomingdale Rowhouse
Near Bloomingdale's main corridors, this Victorian rowhouse retains its original charm. The living room has a bay window and, at an angle, a fireplace with tiled surround, columns and a mirror. A pair of paneled pocket doors next to the staircase open to the formal dining room, which also has a tiled fireplace in a columned wooden mantel with a built-in mirror. The galley kitchen and adjacent breakfast nook both have tiled floors and a pass-through window, along with the back door leading to the landing of a split-level rear deck and patio. The owner's bedroom has a bay window, along with a skylit walk-in closet with built-in shelving and ladder.

Takoma Bungalow with Accessory Apartment

One enters into the spacious living room, which flows into a formal dining area separated by a partial partition. The U-shaped kitchen has tiled flooring, an integrated stovetop and oven, and a breakfast bar. The expansive owner's suite occupies the top level of the home under a vaulted ceiling and enjoys two skylights and a den just on the other side of an archway. The lower level is licensed as a separate one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment, where another kitchen with integrated cooktop beneath a hood overlooks the living room with nearly floor-to-ceiling windows flanking a door to the side yard.

The condo enters into a long hallway, leading to the huge living room with a modern built-in shelving unit directly opposite the wood-burning fireplace, which has two oversized windows on either side. The galley kitchen has a tucked-away breakfast nook with archtop windows and a breakfast bar with lateral shelving abutting the living room. The owner's suite has double exposure courtesy of four nearly floor-to-ceiling windows and a spacious custom walk-in closet. The second bedroom has triple exposure, centered around a trio of windows on the far wall.
