“Very nice junior 1 bedroom English basement apartment with attached garage. Hardwood floors, new kitchen, new bathroom, washer dryer, located 2 blocks from H Street restaurants and bars and 5 blocks from Lincoln Park. Well behaved pet okay. $1300 per month plus utilities.”

$1300 per month plus utilities sound right?

  • I wouldn’t advertise a garage that grungy-looking.

      This is one of the first rentals I’ve seen with a garage. Since it’s not actual living space but for a car I don’t think it’s too grungy looking.

      • Having a garage is *awesome* but Vincent’s right – it comes across as really gross. Maybe they should’ve posted a photo of the outside only!

    • That garage is bitchin! I’d totally sit in there and drink Busch Light with my hand tucked into my trouser front.

    Wow, this was one of the first houses my partner and I saw, back when we started looking in 2009. I think the basement apartment must have been added later because I don’t remember it being there. This isn’t the greatest neighborhood, but I’m sure it will appeal to someone who wants to be near the most densely developed part of H Street. And kudos to the landlord for allowing pets! They should have mentioned that it’s practically right on top of the new dog park as well.

    It’s hard to determine the size of this place from the photos, but given that it has dedicated parking and allows pets I think $1300 is a fair price.

  • Some people pay $1300/month for a garage spot alone (granted, in super fancy bldgs). The owners should rent this space out separately and make bank. For a car owner (or someone who doesn’t want to rent a storage unit), the space is definitely worth it.

    • Having a garage in that neighborhood is cool for safety purposes, but not really in demand for space reasons. Plenty of street parking around there – which reduces the price of a reserved spot.

      • I think it could be nice for an artist who needs studio space, or someone with hobbies that require space-consuming equipment like a kayak.

  • The steps picture looks like it may be the front entrance. I’m guessing the garage is entered through the bedroom. Makes a nice dungeon.

  • Fair price, I think. But where’s the garage in relation to the place? I’m thinking about carbon monoxide. Hopefully, the owner has thought about that already.
