5 Homes You Can Buy Instead of This $899K One-Car Garage

You can do a lot with a garage; you can park your car in it ... Yeah, that's pretty much it. Is paying a whopping $899,000 worth it to be able to park your car in some grungy garage near Dupont Circle? We think not. Instead, park your car by the curb and check out what the same amount of money can get you around Washington, D.C. Here are five homes on the market for roughly the same amount of money, ranging from a four-bedroom townhome in Shaw to a single-family home in Hawthorne.


↑ Along with a two-car parking pad, you can buy this three-bedroom townhome in Foxhall Village for $899,000. The three-story listing has been renovated and features an open floor plan, stainless steel appliances, and sun-filled rooms.


↑ In Shaw, this four-bedroom townhome comes with two rooftop deck, a wet bar, and parking in a rear alley. There is also a fenced-in rear patio and a close location to many restaurants, retail, and the Shaw-Howard U Metro station.


↑ Why only buy a garage when you can purchase a single-family home in Hawthorne that also offers a one-car garage? The 1,362-square-foot listing comes with three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms as well as a finished basement and attic for extra storage. The abode was recently renovated to include granite countertops, Whirlpool Ice appliances, and maple cabinetry in the kitchen. An added bonus is the listing's fenced-in backyard, which is guaranteed to be larger than the square footage in the aforementioned Dupont Circle garage.


↑ For $850,000, you can buy this three-bedroom boutique condo in Columbia Heights. This two-floor unit offers stainless steel appliances, a breakfast bar, skylight, and roof deck. With all of that and more, the listing also offers a one-car garage. Score.


↑ If none of these listings are really your cup of tea, why not just buy pretty much an entire building? Seven out of the eight condos in this Brookland development are up for grabs for $125,000 per unit, making the price tag total $875,000.
