This edition of What X Buys offers a look at some options for would-be buyers in the DC area with a $900,000 budget.
Gently-Updated Hill East History
Over in Hill East (and a block from the new Safeway), this early 20th-century rowhouse blends in seamlessly with its neighbors. The interior of the three-bedroom retains a lot of the original features, and around the corner from the partially-tiled entry vestibule, the living room has a wood-burning, corner brick panel fireplace. The formal dining room has a matching fireplace, along with tin press-style decorative accents beneath a chair rail. The eat-in kitchen has a brick accent wall, soapstone countertops, corner open shelving, and a white subway tile backsplash everywhere but where a basket-like backsplash sits between the floating hood and the stovetop. The owner's bedroom and the third bedroom also have brick accent walls, and the backyard is a brick paver patio with garden areas.

Cute and Convenient in Del Ray
This two-bedroom bungalow is a block off the main drag in Alexandria's Del Ray neighborhood and abuts a neighborhood park. Its front façade is nearly symmetrical, and its front porch has a ceiling fan on either side. A step up in the living room, there's a skylit bonus nook, and more bonus space is beneath the stairs on the adjacent wall. The formal dining room has a chair rail, and the eat-in kitchen has backdoor access to the rear brick patio and spacious yard beyond with a detached shed. In addition to a bedroom and bathroom on the main level, the laundry room has enough space (and a built-in ledge beneath a cabinet) to double as an office. There is a skylight at the top of the stairs, along with sets of built-in shelving, upon entry into a family room/sitting room where paned french doors lead into the skylit owner's bedroom.

Through the dining area, the kitchen has a set of cabinets floor-to-ceiling, Carrara marble countertops, a frosted glass subway tile backsplash, and a floating hood above the stove. Past a breakfast bar peninsula, the family room beyond has a set of sliding glass doors beneath a transom, leading out to a deck. The owner's bedroom has a pentagonal shape and two closets, and shares a full bath with spa tub with the second bedroom. The carpeted lower level has a rec room, another fridge, another bedroom, and a full bath, and the backyard has a playground area and a detached shed.
