In What X Buys this week, UrbanTurf takes a look at properties on the market in the $1 million range to give readers an idea of what type of homes are available in this price point in the DC area.
Penthouse in a Logan Circle Mansion
Where Dupont Circle is surrounded by shops, bus stops, and general activity, Logan Circle is nestled in the midst of stately, enormous Victorians, many of which have been divided into condos and apartments. This listing is the penthouse of one such Victorian. The condo has a fireplace, a skylight, a walk-in closet and a 1,000-square-foot private roof deck. The layout allows for some interesting spaces, including a breakfast nook and a reading nook in the den.

- Bathrooms: Two
- Year Built: 1888

Arlington Condo With Monumental Views
The most notable feature of this Rosslyn two-bedroom condo is its amazing view into DC; the owners can sit on the balcony or look out the wall of windows to see the Potomac River, Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument and much of the rest of downtown. The unit feels fairly modern and sleek, but the monthly fees are on the high side at $1,086 per month.

- Price: $927,000
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: Two

Brick and Irregular Angles in Bethesda
Brick rowhouses are common in the District; less common are all-brick mid-century homes in the suburbs. This Bethesda home’s facade has sharp angles, cylindrical surfaces, few windows and is 100 percent brick. The interior reflects the unusual exterior, with angled ceilings, a sunroom with exposed brick walls, and more windows looking out into the private and woodsy backyard. With over 4,000 square feet, there are some cool spaces, including a lofted sitting area at the top of the house.
- Full Listing: 7220 Grubby Thicket Way, Bethesda, MD (map)
- Price: $1.1 million
- Bedrooms: Five
- Bathrooms: 4.5
- Year Built: 1973
- Listing Agent: Misook Lee, Long & Foster Real Estate
Castle-Like Corner Unit in Capitol Hill
With turrets, Juliet balconies and spiky ornamentation, this Capitol Hill home’s facade has a vaguely medieval feel. Located on the corner of a triangular block, the four-bedroom listing has an unusual, non-rectangular layout that allows for an oversized living room and master bedroom. The lower level is finished in a cave-like fashion, with walls of exposed brick. We also appreciate the classic details like the tin ceiling in the dining room and the bathroom’s black and white tile floor.
- Full Listing: 801 Massachusetts Avenue NE (map)
- Price: $1.095 million
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: Three
- Year Built: 1890
- Listing Agent: Jane Siena, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty
