“Seeing is believing” with this three-story Ledroit Park Victorian, a steal for a down payment of $220,000 and 30 years of monthly payments of $5,350.78. In addition to five bedrooms, the house boasts a corner turret, which allows you to look down on your very own renters in the separately metered basement below. The first two stories retain the tradition of the house’s turn-of-the-20th-century roots with hardwood floors and white walls. Meanwhile, the third story’s ultramodern open bathroom will appeal to bohemians—provided you don’t mind if someone walks in on you while you’re using the Jacuzzi tub, jet-stream shower, toilet, or bidet. Proposed 2006 assessment: $365,800. —Constantine Caloudas
