Chinatown's Priciest and Prettiest Houses on the Market

View as Map

Retail, restaurants, and close proximity to a Metro—what more could homebuyers desire? In Chinatown, residents are able to enjoy all these and more, but at a cost. The median listing price for a single-family unit in the area is $535,000, while the median sale price is $479,000, according to national real estate Redfin. While listings are selling lower then they're asking, they're still offering high-end appliances and luxurious amenities.

Below, Curbed mapped the 10 most expensive listings currently on the Chinatown market, ranging from a $795,000 condo with a bathroom mural to a $4.75 million contemporary townhome above a coffee shop. Unique to other areas, half of the units are located in the same development, Residences at CityCenter. This residential development also houses Washington, D.C.'s most expensive one-bedroom apartment.
