$1,100/month sound right?

  • Good deal I’d say. Proximity to park is great and it’s a quieter neighborhood too.

    Obviously, it’s a 20 min. walk to Woodley Park and 12 to Columbia Heights, but there are some benefits to being in-between two different colored lines than being near one line .

    • Plus, there’s enough bus lines nearby to bridge the gap a bit. If you’re lucky enough to catch the ultra-erratic H4, that 20-minute walk to the Red Line turns into a five-minute bus ride.

    • Good deal, they will get their pick of the litter at that price.

      And it’s definitely less than 12 min walk to Columbia Heights metro from there. I used to walk from 18th and Kenyon in around 8 min.

  • That location with own washer dryer seems like a great deal.

  • Excellent deal from what I can see.

  • Looks like there’s baseboard electric heat, but I can’t tell whether there’s air conditioning.

    (Not as essential in a basement as above-ground, but I’d still want to know beforehand.)

  • kind of oddly underpriced, right?

  • That’s a two-second walk to Columbia Heights because it’s right on the corner of Mt. Pleasant St. with a car repair place right behind it. It’s a little bit of a ratty house, but great location and right very major bus lines (42, 16th St. buses, H buses, circulator). Probably a good deal.

  • A good deal and if they would let me have a cat, I’d rent it in a second!
