Duplex Style Homes in Washington DC Metro Area

Most people think of duplex homes in the simplest of ways – they're structures containing two separate residences. Given that Washington Metro is such a melting pot of diverse architectural styles, you're apt to see a wider variation than other parts of the country – everything from simple brick boxes to a grand old Kalorama row house with dramatic front bays. What you won't find is a large inventory. Duplexes are a factor in the metropolitan area but not one of the top-selling sectors.

Duplex homes in Washington Metro fall into two general areas – urban and suburban. They often tend to fall into pockets of development. The District of Columbia itself offers the greatest disparity when it comes to duplex styles. Alexandria, Virginia on the other hand is known more specifically for brick Colonial post WWII duplexes. Arlington also has a number of brick examples while some of Maryland's larger communities such as Gaithersburg and Silver Springs favor clapboard townhouse-style duplexes.

Duplex Style Homes in Washington DC Metro AreaIn Washington DC, old urban row houses are particularly suited to duplex use – one of the common styles of construction was side-by-side units sharing a party wall. Another typical style is the upstairs/downstairs units with separate doorways. DC row houses tend to account for the most expensive subset of the Metro duplex market. There's also WWII-era garden communities that often included duplexes as one of the housing models.

One of the more recent Washington Metro trends comes courtesy of master-built communities offering an upscale townhome environment with a limited number of single family and duplex homes. From urban antiques to contemporary suburban homes, duplexes fall somewhere into the middle-ground territory of the metropolitan real estate marketplace. They're not at the top of the food chain but they're certainly not as niche as cabins, micro-units or Spanish-style homes. As for prices, they cover a wide range, from the very low $100's all the way up to seven-figure territory.
