In What X Buys You this week, UrbanTurf takes a look at properties on the market in the $750,000 to $780,000 range to give readers an idea of what type of homes are available in this price point in the Del Ray section of Alexandria.
Bungalow With a Deceptively Small Facade
Though this bungalow looks very modest from the street, the deep-but-narrow nature of the layout conceals a large amount of living space. The main level leads back to a sizable master bedroom and a very large family room, and behind that is the back porch (and hot tub). The upper level is a little more makeshift: it looks like an attic was converted into an area with two bedrooms and a small bathroom. The current owners dug out the basement to a useable size, but it is not completely refinished yet.
- Full Listing: 114 Randolph Avenue East (map)
- Price: $761,000
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: 2.5
- Year Built: 1930
- Listing Agent: Laura Woodbury, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
Renovated Split-Level in One of the Fastest-Selling Zip Codes in the Area
As we reported earlier today, Alexandria has some of the fastest-selling homes in the DC area. This listing is in the 22305 zip code, where the homes are selling in just 4 days. This split-level feels maze-like on the interior, with a constant stream of corners and steps to negotiate. Our favorite space is the backyard, where an expanse of grass leads out to a tiered garden.
- Full Listing: 2908 Mosby Street (map)
- Price: $750,000
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: 2.5
- Year Built: 1954
- Listing Agent: Marcia MacDonald, RE/MAX Allegiance
Craftsman With an Extensive Master Floor
While the main floor of this craftsman has a variety of uses — a couple bedrooms, a living room, a dining room, a porch and back deck — the upper level exists solely for the owners of the home. The extensive master suite takes up the entire floor, and includes a sitting room with space for a couple comfy couches and a nook for a desk. Because it was built on the attic level, the closet doors look like they lead to half-sized areas fit for gnomes. The listing also has a finished basement.
- Full Listing: 506 Windsor Avenue East (map)
- Price: $779,000
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: Three
- Year Built: 1933
- Listing Agent: Jane Manstof, McEarney Associates
