In What X Buys You this week, UrbanTurf takes a look at properties on the market in the $375,000 to $380,000 range to give readers an idea of what type of homes are available in this price point in the DC area.
Huge Petworth Home That Needs Updating
Right now, almost every element of the interior and exterior of this Petworth Vicrorian needs updating, but with a fair amount of work it could be restored to the stately mansion that it once was. With its turret, porch, white picket fence and 2,094 square feet, the home has the potential to be stunning. Here’s hoping a buyer with vision and skills snaps it up.
- Full Listing: 4327 8th Street NW (map)
- Price: $375,000
- Bedrooms: Five
- Bathrooms: 3.5
- Year Built: 1907
- Listing Agent: Claudia Palacios, Fairfax Realty
Top-Floor Logan Circle Condo
Built in 1980, UrbanTurf likes the vibe of this one-bedroom in Logan Circle. Touches like semi-circular shapes above the windows and a separate kitchen differentiate the condo from the cookie-cutter units that can be found all over town. Other perks include an in-unit washer/dryer, tandem parking spaces and the relatively low HOA fee of $200 per month. Of course, many buyers will probably prize the unit’s location (just off of Logan Circle) above all else.
- Full Listing: 1200 Q Street NW, #302 (map)
- Price: $379,000
- Bedrooms: One
- Bathrooms: One
- Square Footage: 593
- Listing Agent: Anthony Hain, Lindsay Reishman Real Estate
Update: This home went under contract late Tuesday.
Bright Takoma Park Bungalow With Raw Attic Space
We are fond of Takoma Park bungalows, with their wide porches and craftsman-style workmanship. However, unlike many of the bungalows this site features, this home still has an unfinished attic and basement. For the future owners, this means a lower ticket price and the opportunity to transform those spaces. The rest of the home is scrubbed up and updated in a light, breezy fashion.
- Full Listing: 8502 Flower Avenue, Takoma Park, MD (map)
- Price: $375,000
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: One
- Year Built: 1928
- Listing Agent: Michael Moore, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty
