In What X Buys You this week, UrbanTurf takes a look at properties on the market in the $519,000 to $549,000 range to give readers an idea of what type of homes are available in this price point in the DC area.
An Open Floor Plan Near the Petworth-Brightwood Border
Like many homes in Petworth and Brightwood, this rowhouse was renovated in an open manner, with a living room that flows into the kitchen and dining area. Given the property’s narrow footprint, the openness does help. Upstairs, the master bedroom sits at the back of the house where there are an abundant number of windows; the other two bedrooms are on the small side. The finished basement has a bedroom and bathroom, so it could work as an in-law suite.
- Full Listing: 811 Marietta Place NW (map)
- Price: $549,000
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: 3.5
- Year Built: 1926
- Listing Agent: Catelin Schwarz, Keller Williams Realty
High Ceilings and French Doors in Mount Pleasant
This unit is in a Mount Pleasant rowhouse that was converted into condos. The renovation was generous and maintained a lot of the home’s style: the two-bedroom spreads out over 1,000 square feet, and has a private deck and a well-sized kitchen. There are also historic features, like a fireplace flanked by columns and a decorative glass transom over doors between the bedroom and living room. A parking space is included.
- Full Listing: 1717 Lamont Street NW, Unit C (map)
- Price: $528,000
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: Two
- Square Footage: 1,000
- HOA Fees: $253
- Listing Agent: Rebecca Israel, W.C. and A.N. Miller Realtors
Suburban Colonial on a Cul-De-Sac in Olney
For buyers in the market for a more suburban home, we give you a four-bedroom colonial in Olney. Located on a cul-de-sac and backing up to the woods, the location is private and seems like a safe place for kids to run around. Some buyers might want to update the kitchen and bathrooms, but for style purposes rather than condition as the home seems well-maintained. Perhaps the best part of this listing is the grassy backyard and the sizable deck.
- Full Listing: 18209 Fountain Grove Way, Olney, MD (map)
- Price: $519,900
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: 2.5
- Year Built: 1992
- Listing Agent: Karen Rollings, Prudential PenFed Realty
