Revisiting The 10 Least Expensive Homes Near H St/Atlas

H Street is hot. And only getting hotter. With new bars, restaurants, apartments, condos, and hipster hangouts popping up left and right, there's not a week that goes by without some new "it" thing making news in this nabe. This collection of homes and abodes is a mixed bag of styles, including a renovated firehouse. Nearly all of them sold and some of them for more than their ask. Click through for the details on each property.

10. 823 12th St
Asking Price: $549,900
Square Feet: 884
Price Per Square Foot: $622
The Lowdown: We begin our drunken stumble in the Atlas District with this price-reduced 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath townhouse. Dropped from $599,000, this house is designed for the lush who wants to "enjoy a drink while gazing at all the amazing features of this stunning new construction 3 level modern home just steps from the hottest area of DC".
Update: Delisted. Boo.

9. 625 3rd St
Asking Price: $509,000
Square Feet: 1,320
Price Per Square Foot: $386
The Lowdown: Do you know math? Then see if this equation makes sense: "Southern exposure + multiple windows + skylights = tons of sunlight!" Does it? Good. Reduced by $40,000, this 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath corner duplex with two tandem parking spaces and a wood burning fireplace is looking for a quasi-math genius.
Update: This puppy sold for $10,000 above ask.

8. 743 3rd St
Asking Price: $490,050
Square Feet: 1,092
Price Per Square Foot: $449
The Lowdown: If you want space and urban convenience, this 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath townhouse with a one-car garage and gated entrance might be appealing to you. Featuring spacious bedrooms and a private courtyard a stone's throw from H Street and Union Station, this new listing may not be on the market for long.
Update: Sold to a buyer who offered more than $515,000 for this one.

7. 619 11th St
Asking Price: $399,900
Square Feet: 672
Price Per Square Foot: $595
The Lowdown: Security is on the mind of this seller since he highlights the deactivated ADT alarm. But there's more to this 1 bedroom, 1 bath townhouse, including a small backyard with promise, new 2010 renovations, plenty of upgrades, and a price reduction from $425,000.
Update: This one sold but for less than its ask. The final offer was $370,000.

6. 813 5th St
Asking Price: $375,000
Square Feet: 800
Price Per Square Foot: $469
The Lowdown: Are you fabulous and hip? Yeah, we're not either. But that shouldn't stop you from viewing this 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo with a "fab rear garden" and two rear parking spaces. (There are lots of things going on in the rear...)
Update: For $20,000 less than its asking price, this one bedroom condo found a new owner.

5. 730 11th St
Asking Price: $374,999
Square Feet: 844
Price Per Square Foot: $444
The Lowdown: Packed to the gills with perks, this 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo is already beckoning you home. Included in this unit are "parking, hardwood floors, granite counters, subway tile back splash, fireplace, matching black appliances, in-unit washer and dryer, and walk-in master closet." And you can always enjoy trolley access when (read: if) it ever arrives.
Update: Price changes. Delisted. And back on the market. It's new ask is $349,555, and it has a pending sale.

4. 609 L St
Asking Price: $369,750
Square Feet: 800
Price Per Square Foot: $462
The Lowdown: Grab your night vision goggles, kids. This building's exterior was taken either at night or during an eclipse. And unfortunately, we missed out on the cupcakes and cocktails open house. (Sadness.) But alas, this 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath condo still has plenty to offer, including a gorgeous kitchen.
Update: This place with the amaze kitchen sold for $350,000.

3. 1114 3rd St
Asking Price: $350,000
Square Feet: 864
Price Per Square Foot: $405
The Lowdown: A price reduced Federal row house is on the market. And it's tastefully put together and certainly not "overdone". Though sold as is, the 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath house seems like it has it together. And if need be, you can always update it to fit your tastes.
Update: Cha-ching. For $10,000 above ask, this two bedroom abode found an owner.

2. 1125 Maryland Ave
Asking Price: $319,900
Square Feet: 731
Price Per Square Foot: $438
The Lowdown: This seller is looking to unload this property, and while we wouldn't go as far as to say "desperate", there is urgency with this listing. The 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo is certainly "charming" and hits all the right notes, including the low monthly HOA of $130.
Update: Talk about getting it on the cheap. The final offer was $253,000.

1. 1341 Maryland Ave
Asking Price: $234,500
Square Feet: 673
Price Per Square Foot: $348
The Lowdown: And we finish our real estate crawl at the eastern end of the Atlas District. This week's least expensive Least Expensive is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath condo in a converted firehouse. It has "tons of character", but also income restrictions, like a 2-person household cannot make more than $68,800. So check it out if you qualify. And we hope the fire pole is still in the unit because then you can pretend to be Ghostbusters. We call Peter Venkman.
Update: Super cute. And right at the asking price. Perfect.
