What $620,000 Buys You in the DC Area: Figure 1

A Victorian Rowhouse in Eckington

This quirky, restored Victorian rowhouse in Eckington isn’t far from the NoMa Metro, but it feels worlds away from the towering new residential buildings that characterize that part of the neighborhood. The home has a good-sized living room for a DC rowhouse, with a somewhat separated dining area tucked away near the kitchen. The master bedroom is large enough for a small seating area, and the second floor has a den. The basement is unfinished, and out back is a deck that leads to a small yard.

  • Full Listing: 45 Q Street NE (map)
  • Price: $629,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: 1.5
  • Year Built: 1905
  • Listing Agent: Larissa Fain, McWilliams/Ballard

A Sprawling Yard in Potomac

Moving further away from DC proper has its benefits, which are on display in this four-bedroom, 3.5-bath house in Potomac just west of North Bethesda. The house has formal living and dining rooms as well as an open-concept family room and kitchen, and a deck off the back of the house extends the living space. The basement is finished and opens out on to one of the home’s best feature: a very deep backyard.

A Cozy Rowhouse Near H Street

This narrow rowhouse on the H Street Corridor’s west end makes up for its slim profile with a floating staircase that opens up the living space — not to mention its soon-to-be-proximity to the neighborhood’s incoming Whole Foods. It’s been carefully renovated, with an old woodburning stove near the kitchen left intact. But there’s no getting around the cramped space; the stacked washer-dryer looms in the kitchen, and a bedroom upstairs looks on the small side. Luckily there’s room to spread out on the brick patio out back.

  • Full Listing: 684 4th Street NW (map)
  • Price: $617,000
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Year Built: 1890
  • Listing Agent: Dare Johnson, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
