Which of these two sunny side up abodes is the better one to live in? We're pitting the two against each other for you to weigh in. In our left corner we have a house about twenty miles outside of DC in the little-known nabe of Washington Grove. The 5 bed, 4 bath is about a ten minute walk to Shady Grove Metro or the nearby MARC station and is asking $799K. But on the right hand side we have an Arlington home with 3 beds and one and a half baths asking $598,900. Smaller, yes, but is the price in line with the size? Ah, well, we break things down after the jump.
