If living in the city within walking distance of a Metro station is your priority, you may have resigned yourself to renting until you can afford a pricey urban home. In the 20009 Zip code, which includes the neighborhoods of Adams Morgan, Lanier Heights and parts of Columbia Heights and Dupont Circle, the average sales price in April was $678,708, according to Bright MLS. While you may not be able to afford a rowhouse or a three-bedroom condo in those sought-after neighborhoods, a one-bedroom co-op could fit your budget.

For example, the co-op in the Clydesdale at 2801 Adams Mill Rd. NW, No. 212, is priced at $339,000. The monthly co-op fee of $573 includes water, sewer, gas, real estate taxes and an underlying mortgage.

The 775-square-foot unit has one bedroom and one bathroom and has been updated. The co-op has hardwood flooring and a wall of built-in shelves in the foyer. The living and dining areas are open to each other and adjacent to the galley-style kitchen, which has a window and glass-front cabinets. Shared laundry facilities are in the building. The pet-friendly building is close to a dog park, but it doesn’t have any parking.

The Clydesdale sits on a quiet street on a hill with treetop views. Restaurants, shops and music venues in Adams Morgan are within a short walk and the Woodley Park Metro station is a half-mile from the building. For more photos, visit
