What $1.2 Million Buys You in the D.C. Area: Figure 1

A Turn-of-the-Century Rowhouse in Eastern Market

This rowhouse a couple of blocks west of Lincoln Park has five bedrooms, three baths and a renovation that shows off its Victorian-era style. The home’s dark wood floors, trim and built-ins have been preserved, while its kitchen and bathrooms have been updated. The house spans a lot that fronts both A Street and Massachusetts Avenue, so there is no backyard; instead a cozy addition fronts a patio overlooking A Street. The home was last sold in 1998 for a mere $305,000.

  • Price: $1.25 million
  • Bedrooms: Five
  • Bathrooms: Three
