1,700 Square-Foot Three-Bedroom Columbia Heights Condo

What $490K Buys You in DC: Figure 3

With parking included in a recently reduced list price, this just renovated three-bedroom, three-bath condo unit in Columbia Heights is priced to sell. The unit is spread out on the first and basement levels of a row home just a few blocks north of the Columbia Heights Metro station. The first floor makes good use of a somewhat narrow layout, and the living, dining and kitchen areas are all open to each other and lead back to a small den/bedroom and full bathroom. Off the back of the first floor is a small deck, while not huge, is a fine size for a grill and small set of table and chairs. The lower level has two bedroom suites, both of which have walk-in closets. Some buyers may be turned off from buying a condo that includes a basement level, which may account for the recent $25K drop in the list price, but this one is beautifully finished and offers a lot of square footage for the price.
