  • The neighborhood is quaint, but it’s a pain to get too if you’re not already in NW or Georgetown. I’ve been in a couple of these apartments and they’re honestly not spectacular, so $1300 seems reasonable. They tend to attract GU and AU students, so it’s no wonder the poster wrote ” all applicants must have good credit”… aka, tenants share rooms.

  • Eh, not such a good deal…I had a comparable place in Woodley for the same price that was also a 5 minute walk from the metro and 10 minutes from bars, restaurants etc.

  • I think that if it were on or directly off of Wisconsin, it would be a better deal. This seems slightly high for a dated-looking unit this far off the beaten path.

  • For the price, it looks about right – nothing fancy, but the porch is a nice touch!

  • It’s a very quiet neighborhood. You could walk to all the restaurants on Wisconsin but getting anywhere else will be a pain. I used to live in Glover Park. You’re dependent on the 30s or D buses to get you to the Metro or downtown.

  • It will become slightly more grid-connected when they open the new Capital Bikeshare station at Stoddert Rec Center (sometime in the current expansions).

    Whether it’s worth the cost is a tough question, but it seems to be around market value for that neighborhood.
