In What X Buys You this week, UrbanTurf takes a look at properties on the market priced in the $839,000 to $865,000 range to give readers an idea of what type of homes are available in this price point in the DC area.
1911 Four-Bedroom Victorian in Palisades
This four-bedroom in the Palisades, a quiet community northwest of Georgetown, is the type of home for a buyer that is looking for a bit of a project. The 1911 farmhouse has curb appeal, preserved details and a big backyard, but it is a little rough around the edges inside and the eventual owner will likely want to update almost every room.
- Full Listing: 5746 MacArthur Boulevard NW (map)
- Price: $839,000
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: Two
- Square Footage: 1,900
- Year Built: 1911
- Listing Agent: Nancy Hammond, Evers & Co. Real Estate
A Cape Cod with Enclosed Porch in Arlington
This updated, four-bedroom Cape Cod packs plenty of charm into its diminutive frame with a white upstairs dormer window and a trellised back entry. It’s convenient (some might say too much so) to Route 66 and within walking distance of the Ballston Metro. An enclosed front porch and a classic layout complete with cozy fireplace warm up the interior.
- Full Listing: 1535 Utah Street North (map)
- Price: $849,000
- Bedrooms: Four
- Bathrooms: Three
- Square Footage: 1,500
- Year Built: 1937
- Listing Agent: Sarah Webster, Long and Foster Real Estate
A Unusual Look and Layout in Northeast DC
It’s not an unwelcome reality on Capitol Hill and along the H Street Corridor: most houses look similar from the outside. This home, situated on 8th Street two blocks from H Street, diverges from the rowhouse formula with a courtyard entry, and a modern, wide-open floorplan inside that bucks the usual layout trend for the neighborhood. The list price recently dropped from $899,500, so maybe the seller will find takers at this lower price point.
- Full Listing: 530 8th Street NE (map)
- Price: $865,000
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: 2.5
- Square Footage: 2,200
- Listing Agent: Djana Morris, Keller Williams Capitol Properties
