I’m loving the location between two parks. Does $1200 sound reasonable for this studio?

  • 750 sq. feet is large for a studio. I wonder how accurate that is. Good location, probably on the quiet side. Close enough to Eastern Market and Barrack’s Row. Seems ok to me, as long as flooding hasn’t been an issue.

  • I used to live across the street. This is a really friendly, quiet block, although there is a bus stop on the corner, so there is a little traffic noise. The walk to Eastern Market is easy. Now if CaBi would put a bike station on 8th & Maryland….

  • I would say this is quite a good deal. The place seems a bit outdated, but overall its got a good amount of space. Its the area that makes this a good deal, it is very walkable to Eastern Mkt, Union Station, H street, two parks-The Capitol for interns, etc.

    If the fire place works, I would actually say its a steal.

  • Good deal but this isn’t a quiet street. I live two blocks down and this is a truck route, bus route, and used by emergency vehicles to traverse the neighborhood and to get to the hospital that’s a block away. You will get traffic noise here, it’s not a big deal but it’s not exactly a quiet neighborhood street either.

    Still a good price.

  • Great location!
