A Logan Circle Two-Bedroom in the Berret School

The Berret School was built in 1898 and converted to residences in 1999. Most of the units, including this two-bedroom, have 14-foot ceilings and nine-foot windows. One of the bedrooms in this condo is on the smaller side, but the unit is updated with all-new finishings in the bathrooms and kitchen, and given its location at 14th and Q, the new owner will never have a shortage of nearby restaurant options.

  • HOA Fee: $375/month
  • Bedrooms: Two

A 13th Street Two-Bed, Two-Bath Condo

The lowest priced option featured today, this condo, also in Logan Circle, has lower ceilings and is slightly smaller than its counterpart above. A wall of exposed brick adds a little historic character to the living space, which is set off from the kitchen but not totally separate. The condo fee, at $480 a month, is a little on the high side, but the unit comes with that most sought-after of amenities in this neighborhood: a parking space.

  • Full Listing: 1325 13th Street NW, #301 (map)
  • Price: $650,000
  • HOA Fee: $480/month
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Year Built: 1885
  • Listing Agent: Matthew Murton, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

A Sprawling Colonial in Gaithersburg

If you head outside of DC, you get more mileage out of a $700,000 home buying budget. This 5,400 square foot home on three acres in Gaithersburg is proof of that. Built 25 years ago, the home has a sunroom and a huge back patio with plenty of room for dining and entertaining, plus a wet bar. While the home is quite large, the eventual buyer may want to update the finishes and remove some of the wallpaper after closing.
