In What X Buys You this week, we take a look at properties on the market in the $529,900-$565,000 range to give readers an idea of what type of home this price point offers in DC.


Four-Bedroom Renovated Tudor in Brookland

What $540K Buys You in DC: Figure 1

This stone Tudor home in Brookland has been renovated into a family-friendly living space. The main level consists of a formal living room with wood-burning fireplace and connected sun room, and a large dining area attached to the kitchen. The kitchen has lots of storage and connects to a half bath and an outdoor deck. The upper level has three sizeable bedrooms, including a master suite with his and her closets. The basement is split into two sections; a rec room and what could be used as an efficiency apartment with a separate entrance. The home only has a front yard and is located on a busy intersection, but with off-street parking and plenty of room to entertain, it’s a worthy choice at this price point.

    What $540K Buys You in DC: Figure 2

    Located just north of Stanton Park in Capitol Hill, this two-bedroom, 1.5 bathroom row house features a wood-burning fireplace in a living room that opens into an eat-in kitchen/dining area. A mud-room/office is located in the rear of the first floor and leads out to a shaded brick patio. Upstairs is a large master bedroom with a wood beamed ceiling. The walk through closet in the master bedroom leads into a smaller bedroom. A full bathroom and a small office space round out the second level. There is certainly room for improvement and upgrades that can be made in this house, but at this price you’d be hard pressed to find something as spacious in what is a very coveted DC neighborhood.

    The Four-Bedroom Wardman With Potential

    What $540K Buys You in DC: Figure 3

    1209 Kennedy Street is a Wardman-style row home in the Brightwood neighborhood. The home has four bedrooms and four full bathrooms (one of which is on the main level), and recently underwent a renovation. The property includes a large master suite and finished basement which make for lots of usable square footage, as well as a sunroom off of the kitchen/dining area, and a similar extra space on the upper level off of one of the smaller bedrooms. The outdoor space is a concrete slab which would be perfect for parking or for setting up outdoor seating, but lacks greenery. With plenty of potential, this huge property simply needs a believer to invest in it. For the full listing, click here.
