This installment of What X Buys highlights three options for prospective homebuyers looking to stay under $900,000.
A Convenient Cottage in the Palisades
Over in the Palisades, this cottage-like two-bedroom is packed with charms and has easy access to the neighborhood's amenities.

The living room has a pair of skylights and a fireplace between windows, and the angular eat-in kitchen has a skylight, along with a hood above the stove and a white subway tile backsplash. The owner's bedroom has a wall of built-ins surrounding a door, a double closet, and an en-suite bath. The attic can be a spacious bedroom or a bonus room, and the house also has a partially finished basement and a backyard deck.

Mid-Century Modern in Holmes Run
Over in the Holmes Run Acres area of Fairfax, an offer was already accepted for this mid-century modern house within four days of it being listed. The open-concept main level has an exposed wooden beam ceiling with a painted I-beam and two skylights. The living area has a quartet of floor-to-ceiling windows, and the kitchen has tiled floors, a breakfast bar island, and a wide box window. A brick partition houses a gas fireplace with cubby beside a built-in bar, separating the living room from the hall and the skylight dining room, where sliding glass doors open to a flagstone patio. The owner's bedroom suite has triple exposure, exposed beams, and room for a sitting area. The lower level has a rec room with brick panel fireplace, two wood-paneled bedrooms and two baths, along with access to a platform deck and stone patio.
