Lanier Heights Condo With a Walk-in Closet

For those who want to buy at this price but don’t want a long commute, a few options in Lanier Heights popped up in our search. The small neighborhood is tucked between Mount Pleasant and Adams Morgan and is a quick walk to many other neighborhoods, but the price point for one-bedrooms tends to be quite a bit lower than in other parts of DC. This unit is bright, well-maintained and the bedroom is tucked away from the main living area in a “junior one-bedroom” fashion. It’s on the small side, but a walk-in closet and built-ins would help keep the space uncluttered. The one thing on the high side is the unit’s monthly fees.

  • Bedrooms: One

Top Floor Condo in Falls Church

Located in Falls Church about ten miles from the center of DC, this one-bedroom is a good option for someone who is eager to own and doesn’t mind driving. The top-floor unit is carpeted and modest, and comes with a parking space. The bathroom is full of shiny, well-maintained features, but the kitchen is a bit claustrophobic and outdated.The HOA fees are on the low side.
