Condo: 1615 N. Queen St. #M407, Arlington
Get the feel of an artist’s loft — floor to ceiling windows, open floor plans, exposed ductwork — but with 1,650 square feet and walk-in closets. Here, you get two bedrooms and two bathrooms, including a truly enormous master bath. The other bathroom is nearly as big, but the washer and dryer are located in it along with the tub, a puzzling choice. It’s just a short walk to either the Court House or Rosslyn Metro stations. For a $683 a month condo fee, you get underground parking and a storage unit, plus use of the building’s pool and gym. The unit also has an integrated sound system with iPod dock for the arty parties you’ll throw once you live here. Contact: John Plank, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Condo: 1011 T St. NW, Residence B
The cardiovascularly challenged should pass on this walkup — the main living area is a flight up, then it’s two more sets of stairs to get to the bedrooms and the rooftop, respectively — but all others should take a look. The brand-new unit will impress visitors with spaciousness and views of the Washington Monument. With two bedrooms, 2.5 baths and nearly 2,200 square feet, you won’t lack for space. And at only a block from the U Street Metro, you might never take your car out of its secured parking space. The thoughtfully designed kitchen includes a Sub-Zero fridge. The monthly condo fee is set at $490. Contact: Matt Ford, email@example.com.
