All the things you want to know about where you live from Curbed DC...

CHEVY CHASE—We don't have too many houses by Frank Lloyd Wright around here, but this one was built by one of his apprentices and looks like the old master could have built it himself. Click over for pictures of earth tones and wooded settings.

GEORGETOWN—On Tuesday of this week an affordable house went on the market in a neighborhood where such a thing is unheard of. This two bedroom rowhouse is asking 500K. There's an open house this Sunday 5/13 from 1:00 to 4:00. Offers are due Monday 5/14 by noon.

14TH STREET—The art project that asks people to anonymously write down what they want to do before they die has come to 14th St. Everything is written in chalk so the list changes daily.

TRUXTON CIRCLE—No one ever talks about this neighborhood so we thought we'd see what there was by way of real estate. We only found a few rentals under $1,500 but the ten least expensive properties are promising.

RACKED—Our fashion post this week tells you how to survive spring gala season, a vintage clothing boutique has moved to a new H Street location, a lovely lookbook was shot in Alexandria, and bloggers from the Lucky conference compiled their list of tips.

HEAT MAPS—Every month we put together a map of the median sales price for properties in each zip code and here is the one for all sales during April. Most median prices went up.

ECKINGTON—If the five hundred thousand dollar house in Georgetown is beyond your budget here's one for less than half that in our Under 300K Club. It's small, but in liveable condition, and will sell for what the Georgetown house is going for when Eckington comes into its own.
