  • No so bad…. I’m sure lots of people will comment that this is way overpriced, but honestly I think it’s about right. Very affordable and great location for a young couple.

  • It does seem like a lot to live in a basement, but that’s a good street and H Street has come a long, long way. For my money, I’d get something above ground further east for much less.

  • Agreed with rosied and kev29 on both counts-this seems priced about right, but I’m expecting others to disagree.

    FWIW, I leave a few blocks west of here and this seems pretty in line with my rent (I pay a little more, but cable is included and, based on the pictures, my apartment, while also an English basement, has more windows/gets more natural light). I’ve casually looked at other places in the area and my place seems pretty in line with what’s typically charged.

    Good heavens. So basement 1BRs are over $1500 over there now too?

    Also, what do those stairs in the foreground lead down to? Is the door lower than the floor? That’s bizarre.
