In What X Buys You this week, UrbanTurf looks in the $800,000 range to see what a DC area buyer can expect to find at this price point.
A Spacious 16th Street Heights Tudor
This three-bedroom home off 14th Street has exceptionally wide doorways between each room, keeping it mostly traditional but with enough space for entertaining and mingling. The kitchen has a nice eat-in nook, and UrbanTurf also likes the small, adjacent TV room. The lower level is completely finished and can be used for more family space or as a separate in-law suite. The outdoor spaces are exceptional: there is a cozy front porch and a deep backyard with an herb garden.

- Price: $799,950
- Year Built: 1928
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: Three

A Bright Connecticut Avenue Penthouse
This two-level penthouse in Van Ness takes advantage of its high vantage point. The double height living room is encased in windows that bring in a tremendous amount of light to the space. The bedrooms are on the smaller side, but also have a number of windows that provide great views. An elevator opens directly into the unit and there is a parking space in the garage.

- Price: $839,000

A Cape Cod with a Standout Sunroom
If UrbanTurf were to buy this home, we would spend all our time in the sunroom. The large room off the back of the house comes outfitted with a fireplace, grill, and a wine fridge and has enough room left over for furniture. Hardwood floors track throughout the rest of the home and the kitchen is updated with subway tiling. The bedrooms are spacious and the master suite makes up the entire upper level.

- Year Built: 1938
- Bedrooms: Three

- Square Footage: 2,475
