Home Imprudent, City Paper’s guide to the weirdest, wonkiest, most impractical, and outrageously priced homes in D.C. is back! Do you know of a house that should be featured? Email it to

  • This 2,200-square-foot plot of land between Anacostia and Barry Farm, zoned for a single-family home, is up for sale at [clears throat] $185,000. All that’s left to do is actually build the house.

  • Here’s a pretty ordinary-looking two-bedroom condo condo in Senate Square that’s going for $1.7 million. 

  • Are you an oil magnate? Real estate developer? Attorney married to a surgeon? Jeff Bezos? Here’s a two-bedroom condo across the city in Georgetown’s Ritz Carlton. For $4.1 million, you get a 10-seat bar, three wine refrigerators, two kitchens, and one superiority complex. 

  • Located on Fort Baker Drive SE in Hillcrest, this newly constructed five-bedroom, five-bath home that looks a baby Glenstone (it’s even got “forest views”). It comes complete with a Tesla charging station in the garage, motorized window shades, and two walk in closets. All for the low, low price of $1.2 million.

  • A lofted five-bedroom condo with a distinctly industrial touch in the renovated Pierce School is going for $2.5 million. It’s got cavernous rooms and exposed silver pipes, if that’s your thing. (Though, in my mind, it’s kind of like paying $1,000 for jeans that are already ripped.)

  • The gloss-ification of Trinidad continues: Here, a 4-bedroom townhouse on Trinidad Ave. NE is up for $880,000.
