In What X Buys You this week, UrbanTurf takes a look at properties on the market for just below $1 million to give readers an idea of what type of homes are available in this price point in the DC area.
Suburban Comfort: Bethesda Colonial From the 1930’s
This three-story Bethesda home has a traditional vibe, with wainscoting, moldings, fireplaces, built-ins and a colonial facade. The master bedroom is huge, with an extra office area, but we liked the cool, window-ful addition on the side of the house that is currently being used as a family room and the back patio. The house is located in Westmorland Hills, just a couple blocks from the District line, offering suburban comforts fairly close to the city.

- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: 3.5
- Year Built: 1935

Bedrooms Everywhere in This Mount Pleasant Home
Set back from the street above the street action in Mount Pleasant is this six-bedroom semi-detached home. It has more light than your average row house and a beautiful front yard with old, giant trees. Like the listing above, the listing has wainscoting and period details, but looks more modern with dark hardwood floors and a black and white patterned tile floor in the kitchen (not to mention a living room pool table, which does not convey). The layout puts four bedrooms in the main house and two in the lower level unit, which is ready to rent.

- Price: $990,000
- Bedrooms: Six
- Bathrooms: Four
- Year Built: 1915
- Listing Agent: Heather Davenport, Lindsay Reishman Real Estate

Georgetown Federal-style Row House With an English Garden
At 1,768 square feet, this is the smallest offering on the list in the poshest location: Georgetown, right next to Rose Park and the Rock Creek trails. The federal-style row house lives on three stories, with three bedrooms and a living room on the upper levels and the kitchen and dining room on the lowest level. The renovation is elegant and bright and the backyard has been meticulously landscaped, with a sitting area and garden.
