In What X Buys You this week, UrbanTurf takes a look at properties on the market in the $729,000 to $750,000 range to give readers an idea of what type of homes are available in this price point in the DC area.
Capitol Hill Victorian Not Far From Congress and Eastern Market
Unlike other Victorians on the Hill, the front door of this listing opens to the ground level, which has a den and laundry area floored with Mexican tile. From there, interior stairs take you up to the main living space, a much cozier story with hardwood floors, a renovated kitchen that opens up to a private backyard, and a more formal living room. The top level has two sunny bedrooms and a large bathroom, and there is long, brick patio and garden area in the back of the home.
- Full Listing: 332 E Street SE (map)
- Price: $749,000
- Bedrooms: Two
- Bathrooms: 1.5
- Year Built: 1870
- Listing Agent: Joel Nelson, Keller Williams Capital Property
Columbia Heights Three-Bedroom With A Private Terrace
This unit is in Girard Crossing, a condo conversion that delivered back in 2007. The main living area has a long, open floor plan and with generous square footage — 1,750 — the openness feels expansive. The master bedroom is also large, with a sitting area and doors that lead out to perhaps the best feature of the home: a private terrace. With benching along all sides and views of the row houses tucked together, the space seems like it would be well-loved. Current owners have outfitted it with a pretty outdoor rug and cushy furniture.
- Full Listing: 1326 Girard Street NW, #3 (map)
- Price: $749,900
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: Two
- Square Footage: 1,750
- Condo Fees: $206/month
- Listing Agent: Andrew Riguzzi, DCRE

Deceptively Small Facade in Kensington
This suburban Maryland home has a deceptively small facade; the layout of the home goes much farther back than one would expect, and all three levels are finished and usable. The main floor has a living room, kitchen, separate dining room and a large family room that opens to the patio, as well as a couple bedrooms. The top floor was renovated into one very long room, currently used as a bedroom and a sitting area, while the lower level has a TV-watching room and an office.
- Full Listing: 10242 Parkwood Drive, Kensington, MD (map)
- Price: $729,900
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: Two
- Year Built: 1951
- Listing Agent: Patrick Grace, Long and Foster
