3 Open Houses (With Backyards!) You Need to See This Weekend

All for under $800,000

Capitol Hill East

Where: 1221 C St. SE

How much: $589,000

When: Saturday and Sunday

Why: It’s teeny, but incredibly charming, with central air, an attic, AND a yard. Plus it’s an easy walk to the Eastern Market Metro station, and did we mention it’s a whole house for under $600,000?!?


Where: 1032 Perry St. NE

How much: $799,990

When: Sunday, 1 to 4 PM

Why: A gleaming Carrera marble waterfall island in the kitchen, and the rare moment in DC when a house that isn’t in Georgetown has more bathrooms than bedrooms. Plus a fenced-in yard and a smart home system you can control from your phone.

U Street:

Where: 1100 W St. NW Apt. 1

How much: $699,900

When: Sunday, 1 to 3 PM

Why: It’s a first-floor apartment, but the light is spectacular, with huge windows in every part of the living space. Plus, the design is incredibly sleek, and that backyard can easily be spruced up into a very chic dining area.
