What $940K Buys You in DC: Figure 1

With the addition of a large family room and new master suite to the original house, this three-bedroom, 3.5-bath home in Burleith has plenty of space. The elongated layout opens to a formal living room, leading back into a renovated kitchen and family room. The upper level has three large bedrooms and two full bathrooms, including a master suite with an en suite bathroom. The basement level features an exposed wood-beam ceiling, another full bathroom and storage space. There are seven skylights throughout the house, adding additional natural light otherwise missing in an attached, mid-block home. Outside there is a brick patio and one garage parking space. The bathrooms are on the small side, the ceilings are on the low side, and there is limited yard space, but the size, updates and location of the house make it an attractive option.

What $940K Buys You in DC: Figure 2

1621 12th Street NW is a two-unit condo building just north of Logan Circle called The Symera. The unit for sale (#101) includes the first and basement levels. The renovations are fairly high end including top of the line flooring, cabinetry and counter tops. Other attractive elements include a spacious master suite with a dressing area, 11-foot ceilings on the first floor and two flagstone terraces joining the basement and first level outdoor spaces. The unit comes with one parking space included in the list price, and a fairly low HOA fee ($226/month). With a modern design aesthetic that may not be the right fit for every buyer, and having been on the market for close to 70 days, the asking price may need to drop accordingly.
