Which 1BR in Northwest DC Makes Your Heart Skip a Beat?

Welcome to a rare Wednesday edition of Real Estate Death Match. Last week the Alexandria two bedroom apartment pulled the surprise upset over its Clarendon competitor. We were sure the dearth of photos would give Arlington the edge, but less turned out to be more in this case. Living directly above a Whole Foods didn't hurt, either. We brought our battle back into the District this weekend to look at some cozy, well-decorated one bedrooms available around $245K. Get ready for Real Estate Death Match: Woodley Park vs. Columbia Heights Edition.

? Address: 2829 Connecticut Ave NW Apt. 112
Price: $244,900
Square Feet: 556
Beds, Baths: 1/1

The formidable foe from Woodley Park is the larger unit, besting the Columbia Heights apartment by almost 80 square feet. A lot of that probably goes into the walk-in closet and the bedroom is separated by a sliding partition. Although it's very close to the metro, parking is still available for an extra fee. The only obvious downside is that the building does not allow pets to co-habitate. It regains some points for its rooftop pool.

? Address: 2901 16th St NW Apt. 303
Price: $245,000
Square Feet: 470

This room at The Copperfield is a little smaller, but lends itself easily to unique and comfortable decorating touches. The openness of the space makes the seemingly small kitchen feel far less restrictive and if you need to get outdoors, the apartment has a private balcony. The shelving in the master bedroom closet comes with the room. The wine storage for the wall does not, but it's a good idea to steal.
