In What X Buys You this week, we take a look at properties that recently came on the market in the $479,000-$499,000 range to give readers an idea of what type of home is available in this price point in DC.
Logan Circle Two-Bedroom Condo in Stately, But Perhaps Out Of Place Victorian
Just south of Logan Circle, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo unit is located on the second floor of a stately Victorian row home that sits sandwiched next to several much larger, multi-unit buildings. The majority of the unit’s square footage consists of an open/functional kitchen and a living/dining room that features a fireplace. The master bedroom includes a master bath and walk-in closet, and the second bedroom is used by the current owner as an office, with glass doors open to the living area. Condo fees are $210/month and the unit does not include parking. For the full listing, click here.

Two-Bedroom Capitol Hill Home With Large Back Patio
The area around the Potomac Avenue Metro station has become a desirable area for real estate on Capitol Hill in the past couple years. This property is a two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath row home located just to the northwest of the Metro station, and within walking distance to area attractions such as Barracks Row. The home includes two living rooms on the first floor that can be configured as living, dining or family room areas. The upper level has two similarly sized bedrooms and a full bathroom. The exterior is attractively landscaped both in front of the house and throughout the large back patio. For the full listing, click here.

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