In What X Buys You this week, UrbanTurf takes a look at properties on the market in the $250,000 range to give readers an idea of what type of homes are available in this price point in the DC area.
Lanier Heights Junior One-Bedroom
For those who want to stay close to Adams Morgan, the U Street Corridor and Columbia Heights, Lanier Heights is a good option. The tucked-away neighborhood has little through-traffic and tall trees, making it a bit more peaceful than its bustling neighbors. It is also full of co-op buildings with affordable units. This junior one-bedroom is one such option. We liked the walk-in closet and update kitchen.
- Full Listing: 1801 Clydesdale Place NW #623 (map)
- Price: $249,000
- Bedrooms: One
- Bathrooms: One
- Square Footage: 540
- HOA fees: $496/month

Detached Home in Chillum
To find a detached home at this price point, we ventured to Chillum, just across the border in Maryland. The area is to the south and east of Takoma Park, and this home is a mile and a half from the Takoma metro stop. The four-bedroom home has a big yard and is move-in ready, with updated finishes. The attic has been finished in a cozy and carpeted fashion.

Between Petworth and Columbia Heights
Located on the northern edge of Columbia Heights, this one-bedroom condo is on the large size, with over 700 square feet. In addition to a separate bedroom, the property also has a sunroom that can be closed off into a distinct area. According to the listing details, the condo is currently undergoing a renovation to update the kitchen, bathroom and overall layout and may look different than it does in the above photo.
