In What X Buys You this week, UrbanTurf takes a look at properties on the market in the $1.5 million range to give readers an idea of what type of homes are available in this price point in the DC area.
70s Style Rambler Near Potomac
With views of the Congressional Golf Course, this Potomac rambler rambles on for 3,158 square feet. The three-bedroom home, in its updated 70s style, is set on a couple grassy acres, with large windows overlooking a tree-filled backyard. Some retro features, like a stone fireplace and gold trim around the shower, mix with more modern ones, like a renovated kitchen.
- Full Listing: 7031 Persimmon Tree Road, Bethesda, MD (map)
- Price: $1.495 million
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: 2.5
- Year Built: 1974
- Listing Agent: Krystyna Litwin, Long and Foster
Castle-like Tudor in Colonial Village
For luxury buyers who want a more classical look, this Tudor in Colonial Village resembles a stately manor home (the grand piano and grandfather clock keep the feeling going on the interior). With six bedrooms and a castle feel, the listing seems almost Downton Abbey-big. We liked the wood paneled office, the screened-in porch, the landscaped patio, and the sunken pool.
- Full Listing: 1708 Portal Drive NW (map)
- Price: $1.5 million
- Bedrooms: Six
- Bathrooms: Four
- Year Built: 1941
- Listing Agent: Delia McCormick, Evers and Company Real Estate
Two-Story Penthouse in Logan Circle
This penthouse right at 14th and P Streets NW may cost much more than other two-bedroom condos in the neighborhood, but it has something that the others don’t: an 1,100-square foot roof terrace. In addition to this amenity, the unit, in the Cooper Lewis, a condo building that went up in 2006, is filled with other high-end amenities including a built-in sound system. There is also a loft space in addition to the two bedrooms.
Update: This home went under contract shortly before we featured it.
- Full Listing: 1413 P Street NW #603 (map)
- Price: $1,499,900
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: Two
- Year Built: 2006
- HOA fees: $776/month
- Listing Agent: Andrew Riguzzi, DCRE
