With the kind of grit and determination that make up the proud history of Anacostia, the neighborhood won DC's Curbed Cup 2012—beating out hot locales like Capitol Hill, Logan Circle, and Georgetown. To honor the nabe's victory, here are some affordable properties just a stone's throw from the booming Navy Yard and downtown. Some are short sales. Some are condos. And some are row houses. But all of them have character and opportunity.Read More
Homes For Sale In Curbed-Cup Winning Anacostia
For the price of a parking space in some NW nabes or a blowout Inauguration Weekend, here's a short sale property on the market. The condo has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and not much more info.
A townhouse within walking distance of the Metro is a perk well worth it. This is a 2 bedroom townhouse with basement, and it's selling point is convenience to Nats Stadium and downtown.
It may be another short sale, but to some, it's an opportunity. The semi-detached abode has 3 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms. It's on the market in "as is" condition. The interior looks to be solid. Just a bit of touch ups here and there.
Geared to first-time home buyers, the 2 bedroom, 1 bath house that's conveniently located near the highway. So for those with wheels, checking out the sites won't be too big of a hassle. At this ask, the monthly mortgage payment (assuming 20% down) comes in at around $850 per month. Man, so much less than the average apartment rent in the city.
"Gorgeous property for the price." At least that's how this one is being marketed. Yeah, curb appeal this one ain't got. And the boarded up windows give the listing a "je ne sais quoi". But hey, the interior isn't in bad shape, and there's always something for everyone.
This is a home in "historical Anacostia" that's being sold "as is". There are no pics on the interior, and the listing is highlighting that it's a "great investment to fix up" since it's close to several public transit options. May the force be with you.
Maybe a bit of stretch calling Anacostia "sought after", but maybe in a few years, that will certainly be true. However, the truth is that this home has a great kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and more than 2,000 sq.ft. of space. Originally listed for $249,000, it's now looking for buyers willing to pay $20,000 less.
$40,000 more affordable than when it was originally listed, this 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath condo has a well-kept interior with 2 master suites and plenty of space for you and your crew. The master has a private patio and a jacuzzi tub to do...well, whatever it is people do in large tubs. Included in the purchase price is a parking lot, but with the Metro nearby, driving might not be happening too often.
