The Ten Least Expensive Properties in Truxton Circle

New, 1 comment

This week we're exploring Truxton Circle, but exactly where is this place? Wait, why is this not even a circle? Bounded by Florida, New Jersey, and New York Aves, the neighborhood should probably be called Truxton Triangle. Over the years, Truxton has been developing its own unique identity despite being wedged between bigger and more illustrious neighbors, including Shaw, NoMa, and Mt. Vernon Triangle. And because Truxton Circle is a smaller nabe, there's not a lot of inventory variety. But now you've learned that Shaw East or LeDroit Park South or Mt. Vernon Triangle North is really Truxton Circle.

10. 65 New York Ave NW
Asking Price: $795,000
Square Feet: 2,250
Price Per Square Foot: $353
The Lowdown: Where to begin with this listing? There are literally so many things happening on its insides. It's got 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, skylights, crown moldings, tray ceilings, a courtyard, and other details galore. And if you can drop nearly 800 G's, then get a load of this place in-person.

9. 118 Bates St NW
Asking Price: $592,000
Square Feet: 1,972
Price Per Square Foot: $300
The Lowdown: In this Federal townhouse, there are not 2 or 3 or even 4 bedrooms. There are remarkably 5! And 2.5 baths to boot. For the price point, the listing highlights some of its stylish features, including Brazilian Cherry hardwood floors and a gourmet kitchen.

8. 35 Q St NW
Asking Price: $559,990
Square Feet: ???
Price Per Square Foot: ???
The Lowdown: Bamboo and Bosch stainless steel. These are two things that get our real estate juices flowing. And this baby has got both. For the 3 bedroom, 3 bath condo, check out the updated, modern interior juxtaposed with a traditional Victorian exterior. A melding of styles. Loving it. We just wish we knew how big this place is.

7. 1718 4th St NW
Asking Price: $549,000
Square Feet: 1,478
Price Per Square Foot: $371
The Lowdown: For the chef in your life, consider this gourmet kitchen. And for the romantic, check out these two fireplaces, including one on the master bedroom. This 3 bedroom, 3 bath duplex is brimming with awesome features, including a rooftop deck, balcony, parking, and video security.

6. 1512 1st St NW
Asking Price: $483,100
Square Feet: 1,300
Price Per Square Foot: $372
The Lowdown: Oh so precious. Here's a fabulous 1905 townhouse with a "gorgeous renovation with all the bells and whistles". And what exactly are these bells and whistles? Let's see: "exposed brick, solid hardwood floors, tray ceilings, recessed lights, granite/stainless kitchen, back patio AND PARKING TOO".

5. 29 Florida Ave NE
Asking Price: $450,000
Square Feet: 1,956
Price Per Square Foot: $230
The Lowdown: Crossing North Capitol St, we're now in NE but still Truxton Circle. This 4 bedroom, 2 bath single family home has plenty of potential and is looking for someone to take care of that horrible mustard paint on the kitchen walls.

4. 59 Bates St NW
Asking Price: $415,000
Square Feet: 1,927
Price Per Square Foot: $215
The Lowdown: The teenage boy inside me wants to badly make a lewd "master of Bates Street" joke, but I'll resist. For this 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath property, you better have serious dollars in your wallet because it's a "cash only" sale. Advertised as an "investment property with minimum work needed", this might be worth it if you're a baller who doesn't need much in the way of outside financing.

3. Somewhere on R St NW
Asking Price: $389,000
Square Feet: ???
Price Per Square Foot: ???
The Lowdown: In one of our more cryptic listings, this is a 3 bedroom, 1 bath 1910 single family something located somewhere on R St NW in Truxton Circle. It's in foreclosure and has been on the market for more than 230 days. Good luck being a detective and finding out more.

2. 1407 New Jersey Ave NW
Asking Price: $350,000
Square Feet: 1,136
Price Per Square Foot: $308
The Lowdown: Ready to roll up your sleeves for a potential project? Then take a look at this 3 bedroom, 1 bath Bayfront Victorian townhouse. Featuring tall ceilings, a front basement entrance, and "lots of potential", this is geared for a buyer who wants to make this place into his own vision.

1. 76 New York Ave NW
Asking Price: $237,999
Square Feet: 1,002
Price Per Square Foot: $238
The Lowdown: If it's space you want, it's space you'll get. This 2 bedroom, 1 bath condo is filled with space and natural light. And while the kitchen needs remodeling and HOA dues run north of $400 a month, for this listing's low price point, you might be able to find some spare change to upgrade this deal.
