The Ten Least Expensive Properties in Cleveland Park

A neighborhood that is tried and true. Away from the college crowd who frequent Adams Morgan and Dupont, but not so remote that you can't relive your younger (and more irresponsible) days. Welcome to Cleveland Park. If you only know the neighborhood as a haven for the city's wealthy and the elite, think again. (Well, that's partly true.) There are properties galore for younger up-and-comers who are willing to sacrifice space in order to live in a neighborhood you can really grow-up in. Just don't try to rush adulthood—there's always next year.

10. 3100 Connecticut Ave
Asking Price: $325,000
Square Feet: 700
Price Per Square Foot: $464
The Lowdown: Our real estate sojourn in Cleveland Park begins with a 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo that has reduced its asking by nearly $15,000. Highlighting the unit's Walk Score of 88 (considered 'Very Walkable'), it has free laundry on every floor, custom built-ins, marble in the bathrooms, a kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and hardwood floors. Also, there's apparently a Starbucks nearby as one of the listing pics showcase.

9. 3018 Porter St
Asking Price: $299,555
Square Feet: 650
Price Per Square Foot: $461
The Lowdown: Closet space is the focus on this 1 bedroom, 1 bath corner unit coop. Full of "charming and original details", you'll get an "extra-deep" bedroom closet and a "wide entry closet", plus basement storage. Don't forget the hardwood floors, the immaculate and interesting walls, and the many windows to remind you of what you're missing outdoors.

8. 3001 Porter St
Asking Price: $289,000
Square Feet: Not Available
Price Per Square Foot: Not Available
The Lowdown: Now this is an interesting listing. It's a 1 bedroom, 1 bath coop of indeterminate size located in a Tudor style building that is a breath of fresh air from the city's many Federalist, Classical, yada yada style buildings. Reduced from $294,000, this unit has a new kitchen, gleaming wood floors (because who wants non-gleaming floors?), and is a second-floor corner unit.

7. 3618 Connecticut Ave
Asking Price: $275,000
Square Feet: 610
Price Per Square Foot: $451
The Lowdown: Are you a foodie who likes to touch things? If you are someone matching that description, check out this 1 bedroom, 1 bath coop looking for a buyer ready to give his "personal touch" to the space. Located in a pet-friendly building and close to hot dining destinations, such as Palena and Medium Rare, the unit has plenty of character. And since this is Cleveland Park, there's also the requisite "old world" charm.

6. 3900 Connecticut Ave
Asking Price: $259,000
Square Feet: 800
Price Per Square Foot: $324
The Lowdown: Reduced from $285,000, this potential short sale on Cleveland Park's north side is all about "old world charm with beautiful garden views". The 1 bedroom, 1 bath coop has graceful archways, hardwood floors, crown moulding, and high ceilings. While the unit may be subject to third-party approval, the unit itself is just looking for some love from an interested buyer.

5. 3616 Connecticut Ave
Asking Price: $249,900
Square Feet: 422
Price Per Square Foot: $592
The Lowdown: With the pricey per square foot metric comes quality, character, and craftsmanship. The 1 bath studio condo has gorgeous hardwood floors, built-in bookshelves, and a tastefully renovated kitchen for the prodigious cook and entertainer. It's located on the main drag making it easy to hop on the Metro, but parking is also available for another $100 a month.

4. 3315 Wisconsin Ave
Asking Price: $225,000
Square Feet: 800
Price Per Square Foot: $281
The Lowdown: If it's the backside you like, it's the backside you'll get. This 1 bedroom, 1 bath coop has both space at 800 square feet and a price reduction of $50,000 to its current ask. This unit is in the rear of a building with a renovated lobby and views of nature bringing the outside in.

3. 3315 Wisconsin Ave
Asking Price: $225,000
Square Feet: 850
Price Per Square Foot: $265
The Lowdown: Just like the former listing but with a bit more space and a higher HOA, this 1 bedroom coop seems like a book-lover's paradise. For the well-read, the unit has bright paint on the living spaces, which open up the rooms, and views of nature making the large coop feel even larger.

2. 3217 Wisconsin Ave
Asking Price: $209,500
Square Feet: 430
Price Per Square Foot: $487
The Lowdown: Reduced from $219,000, this 1 bath studio is in a pet-friendly building on the neighorhood's far west end. While the kitchen may be dated, the monthly HOA is a low $259, and the unit has plenty of natural light to open up the space, in-unit laundry, and a fireplace to keep you and your loved one (or just you, if you roll solo) warm on a cold night.

1. 3601 Wisconsin Ave
Asking Price: $199,000
Square Feet: 561
Price Per Square Foot: $350
The Lowdown: And this week's least expensive Least Expensive Property in Cleveland Park is designed for a chick (or dude) who needs the studio's space allocated for clothes, shoes, and accessories. The 1 bath unit has a walk-in closet and a low monthly HOA of $275, but it comes with the caveat of being sold "as is". And without listing pics, we're not sure what that actually means.
