  • I live very close to here and can confirm it’s a quiet block, close to metro, Domku, Yes, Qualia Coffee, etc. Lots of friendly neighbors. I think the price is great — not many places where you can get a 1BR for less than $1,000 per month. A deal!

  • Wow! I should consider this one! It’s a great deal for a one bedroom. And the kitchen looks pretty big. Huge plus for many-including me!

  • I would like to see more photos, but it seems like an excellent deal.

  • One tip for homeowners doing repairs on basement units: you can install engineered wood floors. They can handle the moisture of a basement and make a rental infinitely more appealing than dingy old carpeting! Plus they’re not much more expensive.

  • I think that is about the going rate for a basement 1 br in Petworth- close to the metro. It looks nice and clean, too. Always a good sign when the last renter stayed for so long.
