Adams Morgan: $289,000

Condo: 2456 20th St. NW #502
Up a rickety elevator on the fifth and highest floor lies this charming corner apartment, which exudes an understated, 1920s character. Original hardwood floors and moldings, large south- and east-facing windows with latticework and dark wooden doors are ideal for a first-time buyer with shabby-chic or affordable-modern decor. A condo fee of $208 per month for this 519-square-foot apartment gets you a roof deck overlooking Rock Creek Parkway (the stairs are just outside the unit’s door) and access to the building’s communal laundry room.

Southwest: $300,000

Condo: 1435 4th St. SW #B710
The painting-like view from this 920-square-foot unit overlooking Fort McNair and the Washington Channel will provide hours of gazing, whether from the balcony or indoors; the prominent smokestack that rises from the Army post’s red-brick buildings gives the view something of a New England factory-town feel. A condo fee of $904 per month gets buyers a parking space, outdoor pool, communal laundry room and channel-front park area. A renovated kitchen with environmentally friendly Kirei Board cabinets, a wine cooler and ample closet space only sweeten the deal. (Listed by Randall Hagner)
