In What X Buys You this week, UrbanTurf takes a look at properties on the market in the $840,000 range to give readers an idea of what type of homes are available in this price point in the DC area.
Bethesda Rambler with Mid-Century Style
This four-bedroom is full of wood paneling on the walls and the ceilings of several rooms, it has a booth in the kitchen, and spirally wallpaper in a bedroom-turned-office. The exterior is correspondingly vintage, with a carport and a low, wide-lidded roof. The house could probably use some updating to bring it into the 21st century, but a retro-minded buyer would feel right at home.
- Full Listing: 5721 Bent Branch Road, Bethesda, MD (map)
- Price: $850,000
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: Three
- Year Built: 1954
- Listing Agent: Lynne Tucker, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
Retro in the Palisades
The next home is also a bit of a mid-century time capsule. In 1950, the custom-built house was featured in Home and Garden magazine, and the current owners seem to have maintained the magazine-worthy style. Lime green cabinets, a banquette along the dining room wall and more wood paneling make the listing feel quite retro. The customization comes out in a few cool ways, like an angled roof on just half the house, beautiful built-in shelves and a private artist’s studio attached to the back of the house.
- Full Listing: 2818 University Terrace NW (map)
- Price: $839,000
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: Two
- Year Built: 1949
- Listing Agent: H. Margaret Lewis, W.C. & A.N. Miller, Realtors
Update: Homes move quickly these days! This property went under contract early on Wednesday.
A Garden Full of Grapes in Chevy Chase
The sweetest aspects of this Chevy Chase colonial are the thick layer of ivy covering the western wall, the bright sunroom and a garden that is full of grapes. At just over 1,200 square feet, the galley kitchen and a few of the bedrooms are quite small, but if a buyer manages to squeeze a couple kids into the house, they will enjoy the Bethesda-Chevy Chase school district. UrbanTurf staff could also see themselves out on the home’s covered patio.

- Price: $849,000
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: Two
- Square Footage: 1937
- Listing Agent: Cheryl Kurss, Long & Foster Real Estate
