What Around $1 Million Buys You in the DC Area: Figure 1

Built in Three Stages in Old Town

The four-bedroom, three-bedroom house is a hodgepodge of modern and old: Though the atrium is modern, a woodburning fireplace sits in the living room, and the tin-ceilinged kitchen retains a lot of its early-20th century character. The classic-looking home was expanded along the way to include a large living room with a two-story atrium. The listing also has a patio and a spacious backyard complete with a hot tub under a pergola, and it was once the home of Wash Jackson, one of the first black hotel owners in Virginia.

A Two-Bedroom Condo in Penn Quarter

The same price as the home above can get you a spacious unit in the heart of the city, though you’ll lose the backyard and a couple of bedrooms. This two-bedroom condo in Penn Quarter has two-story windows in the main living space, overlooked by a glass-walled study and bedroom. The second bedroom appears windowless and is somewhat cramped, though the unit does has a whopping three bathrooms to accommodate guests. A big perk: The unit comes with parking. There’s a small balcony off the kitchen and dining area.

A Brand-New Home in Takoma

If you’re willing to move further from the city center, you can move into this just-built house for $1 million that sits about a block away from the Takoma Metro. Its beachy, bright exterior gives way to a classic, suburban-style open-concept layout inside. Upstairs the bedrooms are spacious, especially the master, which has a five-piece bathroom and a very large walk-in closet. Out back there’s a porch, a patio with a fire pit and a fenced-in yard.
