In What X Buys You this week, UrbanTurf takes a look at properties on the market in the $400,000 range to give readers an idea of what type of homes are available in this price point in the DC area.
1960s Split Level in Silver Spring
With a split level design, wallpaper in the bathroom and a rec room and office completely plastered in wood paneling, this home looks like a time capsule from an earlier era of suburbanism. That said, the current owner has been making updates, like installing a new HVAC system and remodeling the kitchen. The house is located in a grassy neighborhood in Kemp Mill, an area about 4 miles from downtown Silver Spring.
- Full Listing: 703 Northwood Terrace, Silver Spring, MD (map)
- Price: $419,000
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: 3.5
- Year Built: 1961
- Listing Agent: Barbara Ciment, Long & Foster
Kalorama Condo Renovated in a Contemporary Style
This one-bedroom condo is located at Le Bourget, a historic condo building named after a neighborhood in the suburbs of Paris. The building went up in 1927, but this one-bedroom listing was recently renovated in a contemporary style. The kitchen is outfitted with a breakfast bar and shiny appliances and is now open to the living room, and the floors and bathroom also look updated. We particularly liked the private balcony and walk-in closet with built-in shelves.
- Full Listing: 2127 California Street NW, #406 (map)
- Price: $399,000
- Bedrooms: One
- Bathrooms: One
- Square Footage: 732
- HOA fees: $338/month
- Listing Agent: Daryl Judy, Washington Fine Properties
H Street Condo in the Logan School
In 1984, the Logan School building on G Street NE was chopped up into 24 condos. Because of the slightly unusual shape, some units have rounded walls or angled ceilings. This unit is one; the top floor one-bedroom has several angled ceilings with skylights built into them, creating bright sitting areas throughout the living room. Like the Kalorama condo, this unit has a particularly attractive small balcony.
- Full Listing: 301 G Street NE #35 (map)
- Price: $392,750
- Bedrooms: One
- Bathrooms: One
- Square Footage: 730
- HOA fees: $381/month
- Listing Agent: H. Ryall Smith, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
