Square footage isn’t always the best way to judge a home, but when it comes to DC’s smaller condos, it can be instructive. This week, we look at three DC abodes for sale that clock in at 500 square feet.

What You Get in 500 Square Feet in DC: Figure 1

A One-Bedroom in Dupont with a Trick Bookcase

There’s more than first meets the eye in this one-bedroom on the lower level of a Dupont Circle building. Though the unit is decidedly retro, with old wood trim and detailing just about everywhere, the kitchen and bathroom have been lightly updated. The coolest feature of the home, however, is a trick bookcase that leads into the small bedroom, where a built-in bed offers storage.

  • Price: $259,000
  • HOA Fee: $366/month
  • Square Feet: 500

A Junior One-Bedroom on Thomas Circle

A large walk-in closet and a common roof deck are not often what come to mind when you think of a junior one-bedroom, but this new listing at the General Scott comes with both. The Logan Circle unit has a separate bedroom area with French doors, as well as a kitchen open to the living/dining space. The building has a 24-hour desk and there is extra storage on the same level as this unit.

  • HOA Fee: $418/month

A Modern Studio on the Edge of Georgetown

This studio is in The Sheridan, a former garage rehabbed into condos on the eastern edge of Georgetown. The unit’s best feature is a large window that lets in plenty of light, but it is also pet-friendly and has an in-unit washer/dryer. The kitchen and bathroom are up-to-date, and the building is a quick walk to Dupont Circle or Rock Creek Park.
