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.

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.
