The Craigslist ad says:

“This unique apartment, with flowing spaces and views of Rock Creek Park from every room, is a hideaway in the woods and offers unlimited options for creative furnishing. The outdoor spaces are just as unusual, with a 400 square foot private deck with built in benches and planter boxes perfect for BBQ’s and parties, a quaint brick patio entrance with french doors, and an urban yard perfect for small-scale gardening. An extra storage unit is provided for bikes, ski equipment and camping gear, etc.

This apartment, in a private home, was just painted and is immaculately clean. Features include: central air conditioning, security system, dishwasher, washer/dryer in separate laundry room, DSL/cable, track lights on dimmers, and much more. The custom kitchen has recessed lighting and lots of storage. The unique bedroom features 6 feet by 12 feet of windows with custom sliding lattice panels overlooking the Park. Through two arches the large living room is just steps away.

The apartment is a short walk to The National Zoo, Columbia Heights and Cleveland Park Metro and minutes from the cities best bus lines. The apartment is available in late-July.”

These are some of my all time favorite buildings in Mt. Pleasant. Does $1625 sound reasonable for this 1 bed?

  • It sounds very reasonable. That’s an awesome location. You’re more or less in Piney Branch Park, and yet you’re just a few blocks away from the inner city.

    If you have a car, parking is going to be a challenge in that area, though.

  • Yeah, with all of those amenities, I’d say $1625 is a pretty good deal. I wouldn’t/couldn’t personally pay $1625 for a one-bedroom, but considering the location, look of the place, offerings, etc. I’d say it’s a relative bargain.

  • I don’t understand PoP’s love for the buildings. They’re so sterile and institutional looking. That said, given the location and the amenitites included, it doesn’t sound like a bad deal.

    I used to live right across from these rowhouses and I’ve always loved them. The location is great, amenities sound good–I’d say it’s a fair price if you can afford it.
