Given the chance, who wouldn't want to live near the White House? No matter what your political affiliation, it's fun giving directions ("Just down the street from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue") and a great neighborhood to enjoy history. Who knows, you might run into the Obamas as they head out for a night on the town.

I've written about an outstanding condo on Capitol Hill, at 701 Pennsylvania Ave., but at $850,000, the price was a little steep. Here are three homes within walking distance of the White House that are on the market for less than $600,000. Some are so much less that what you save on cost (and square feet), you can spend on high-end clothes to impress Michelle.
