  • 870 sqft is uber-small for a 2BR.

  • Depending on the size, looks like it could be a good deal! I don’t think 870 is that small for a 2 bedroom basement apartment. Parking and pets a definite plus.

  • This is a very good deal for this space in this location. Calling 870 “uber-small” is a bit strange, though I suppose if you are used to much larger spaces you are entitled to your own opinion.

    I lived in a 2br 2bath that was 860 sq. ft for 10 years and found it plenty spacious even with a roommate.

  • I’ve lived, with another person, in an apartment that was just about the same size. 870 square feet for a two-bedroom is not small.

  • Really good deal – Marion St. is literally one block from the metro, and the place includes parking! Plus, that’s a pretty nice block – I live a couple of blocks away and always admire it when I walk by.

  • Pretty good, considering it’s in the ‘hood!

  • Very good deal. Surprised it is as cheap as it is. I would have expected around $1750… secured off street parking alone would go for $100-150 in that neighborhood.

  • Huh. That’s really not too bad at all.

  • At the moment, this is cheaper than any 2 bedroom listing in Bloomingdale, which is great when you consider that most people pay a premium for metro proximity. Superior deal.

    Plus, it looks like a cute place.

  • Yeah, it sounds like a really good deal to me, especially with the parking and dogs. Marion street is really cute, not to mention it’s not heavily traveled.

  • It was a 1br with den..
