Old Town Alexandria Rowhouse: $679,000
207 Commerce St., Alexandria
A young family looking for close proximity to the city might find their real-estate match in this colonial-style, detached rowhouse dating to the 1920s. Located one block from Alexandria’s King Street and half a mile from the Metro station, this 1,424-square-foot property with a tiny backyard plus shed and two parking spaces is comfortably quaint. The house’s three bedrooms are diminutive and share just one and a half baths. Wood floors and neutral-tone walls ranging from baby blue to light green are stowed behind a wooden exterior with window boxes located on a mixed business-residential street that’s perfect for strolling.

Columbia Heights Rowhouse: $699,999
1435 Monroe St. NW
Old meets all-new in this gutted and renovated 1909 rowhouse. Exposed brick walls, oak floors, a stairwell skylight and gray marble bathrooms exude an urban trendiness, accentuated by the property’s two-block proximity to the Columbia Heights Metro station. A master bedroom with vaulted ceilings is accompanied by two other bedrooms and two and a half baths in the above-ground portion of this 2,400-square-foot abode. A full basement with a bedroom, bath and potential for a kitchen lies below and is perfect for guests. Just don’t take them on the back porch, which overlooks some less-than-stellar backyards.
