What $650-$700K Buys You in the DC Area: Figure 1

A Three-Bed Brookland Bungalow

This three-bedroom, three-bath house in Brookland is fully updated, with a huge backyard that leads out to ample parking. We are fans of the bright, open concept first floor, where a fireplace centers the living space. Upstairs are the master and second bedrooms, while the basement holds a third bedroom with separate bath. It’s currently accessed via a staircase in the kitchen, though it has its own opening onto the backyard, too. The two-level back deck, complete with ceiling fan, leads out to a deep backyard and parking for three cars.

  • Price: $649,500
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Three

A Rambler on a Quiet Street in Braddock Heights

This Braddock Heights home in Alexandria has another enviable outdoor living space. The detached three bedroom rambler is about a mile from the Braddock Road Metro and sits on a quiet dead-end street. Inside are a very bright living space arranged around a fireplace, a small but updated galley-style kitchen and a finished basement. Like the home above, there is a good-sized deck that leads out to a large backyard.

Space to Entertain in Shepherd Park

Some families love more segmented space, and this Shepherd Park home does it well on the main floor while still bringing in plenty of light through two French doors leading out back. A galley-style kitchen is next to but separated from the living and dining areas, and outside there’s a a very large backyard and deck. The basement is finished, too.

    No way that the house in Brookland sells for under $700K

    This list is silly because asking price rarely means that it's the market value.
  1. P Harlow said at 11:34 pm on Tuesday May 6, 2014:
    The Brookland house is way overpriced for that neighborhood. For that size house it's a bit ambitious. The Shepherd Park house is a little bit more down to earth, at least the neighborhood is less shady.

    Crazy to see these prices when my home, with an unfinished basement and in a gated community, has more finished square footage than all three homes. I suppose there's a reason to be hopeful...
  1. James said at 11:53 am on Wednesday May 7, 2014:
    @StringsAttached: Since your huge home is probably 90 minutes' drive outside the city, no, there is not much reason for you to be hopeful. When you sell it, come to closing with a check.

    The Brookland house is now under contract at 710K. Told you.
