What $1.1 Million Buys You in the DC Area: Figure 1

Plenty of Space in Mount Vernon Triangle

This 2,900 square-foot two-bedroom listing sits in 400 Mass, a 13-story, 256-unit condo building constructed in 2006. The unit has been staged to emphasize creating different spaces within the wide-open floor plan, and the listing description boldly claims “more windows than any condo ever,” though UrbanTurf finds this hard to prove. Still, the second-story, one-level space looks bright, shiny and new, and square footage was not sacrificed in either of the bedrooms.

  • Full Listing: 400 Massachusetts Avenue NW, #207 (map)
  • Price: $1,049,000
  • HOA Fees: $697/month
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
  • Square Footage: 2,900
  • Listing Agent: Bryan Cantio, Re/Max

An Arts and Crafts Remodel in Addison Heights

This home sits in Addison Heights, an Arlington neighborhood sandwiched between 395 and the Jefferson Davis Highway. The Arts and Crafts-style, five-bedroom house has been remodeled and there is now a three-story addition, as well as a big backyard and a family-friendly three-and-a-half baths. The buyer will want to add their own personal touches, but the work of remodeling an older home has already been done, which could appeal to a larger family.

  • Full Listing: 1109 21st Street S, Arlington (map)
  • Price: $1,075,000
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: 3.5
  • Square Footage: 3,060
  • Year Built: 1937
  • Listing Agent: Jake Sullivan, Re/Max

A Big Tudor in the Neighborhood No One Leaves

This large Tudor in Georgetown’s western neighbor, Foxhall Village, offers a good deal of bedroom and entertaining space. The four-story townhome has five bedrooms in addition to a main level with a living room, dining room and kitchen that leads out to a rear deck. The home also has a garage. In a neighborhood where the running joke is that no one ever leaves, this house is a safe bet for a big family looking for a place to settle in.

  • Full Listing: 1542 44th Street NW (map)
  • Price: $1,100,000
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Square Footage: 1,900
  • Year Built: 1930
  • Listing Agent: Nancy Itteilag, Long and Foster

    I think I've sipped too much DC real estate kool aid because I happen to think these are three great options of you can get for 1.1M.

    The Mass Ave condo is a strange one--all that space in the living room and you enter through the kitchen at one end of the unit and the bedroom is right off that. If ou are hosting a gathering, everyone enters where the work is being done with the most private area to the left. I wonder if the buyer can move the entry to the living room or if there is another unit there.
