Today we’re going to look at how far you can stretch $300,000 in Arlington County. These properties will range from a few two-bedrooms that are almost 1,000 square feet all the way down to a smaller one-bedroom topping out at just over 600 square feet.
While there are plenty of options in the county to choose from, we’ve narrowed the search down to five residences. These five properties are found throughout all corners of the county and consist of four condos to go along with one co-op. Let’s take a look:
At 962 square feet, this two-bedroom 1.5 bath condo is one of the largest homes below the $300k threshold located along the Orange Line. Just half a mile from the Court House Metro, The Circle Condominium features a rooftop deck, an outdoor pool, grilling area, and a renovated lobby. The condo fees are a little prohibitive at $658/month, which is probably why the price tag is so attractive. The pictures, or lack there of, leave a lot to be desired so expect a blank slate for the interior. For the square feet, amenities, location, and sales price, this one is hard to top.
