  • Shared W/D? As in shared with the owners? No thanks….

    • I share a W/D with my landlord and it’s no problem whatsoever. It’s in a laundry room accessible from my apartment and their home upstairs so no one is infringing on the other’s space.

  • Fairly priced. Sharing the washer/dryer is a hassle, but if it’s in a separate sleeping porch or other easily accessible area it might not be a big deal.

  • I don’t think the shared W/D is that big an issue. Much better than an apartment complex with no w/d or with a shared one, you know, with the rest of the apartment complex, and using quarters…

    this place looks great.

  • Doesn’t look like there is a separate front entrance from the rest of the house, seems like you have to enter the apartment from the main house. If that’s the case, I’d say this is renting out your basement, i.e., renting out a room, rather than renting out a basement apartment.

  • It looks like a good deal to me. But I’d like to know what the “etc.” is supposed to imply. “Shared washer/dryer etc.” …. uhh so are you sharing other stuff too or what? Really though, it’s a great price for a 1 br in that hood.

  • Great neighborhood… don’t see how the entrance works… and I HATE carpeting in basements on capitol hill. Unless serious money was in vested in foundation work, drainage etc (like 30k pluss of work) their will be moisture in those basements. Carpet is a no no.
