  • if I wanted to live in georgetown, the location and price seems pretty ideal.

    price actually seems low–I feel like I’ve seen 2-bed basements in bloomingdale in the same ballpark…

  • 2900 for a 2 br!!?? wtf? do they think that they are in Truxton Circle?
    that’s crazy. and so far from the metro!

    • are you hating on this rental, or hating on my truxton circle?

      • nah, just joking. i actually love TC. btw, whats up with Dunbar? have you seen plans for the new school? i hope it engages with first street better.

        • Truxton is more centrally located in the city and has better transit options.
          far fewer amenities, but i would choose most anywhere in truxton over this particular location in georgetown. and no hate on georgetown, i think most dc residents underestimate how great it is. it’s a fun target to pick on i guess.

  • I used to live in a basement in Gtown, so I’m no unfamiliar with rental rates over there. This rental price is suspiciously low.

  • It’s a really nice looking apartment, but this young professional desires access to a metro…

  • Flats at Atlas (that’s Bladensburg Rd, folks) just released their pricing– their 2 bedroom offerings are less than this, but in the same ballpark. Something doesn’t add up.

    If this is for real it’s a very good deal.

    I am house hunting and this place came up as for-sale last month, I guess they didn’t get any takers and decided to rent it out

  • I think this place is adorable. “A few blocks to metro” is pushing it quite a bit, but it’s actually not that far of a walk from Foggy Bottom (15-20 minutes maybe?), and the Circulator and 30 buses are close by, so public transportation is really not that bad there. The only downside I see is its close proximity to the Whitehurst.

    • The Whitehurst isn’t a bad neighbor…I used to work a block from there and it is charming and high enough above the river. Get to know the bus schedule, or better yet, bike everywhere (although you’ll be walking your bike up THAT hill from K Street)

  • These houses are beautiful, though I lived around the corner for a little while and can say that anything even near the ground between a canal and a river is going to have its share of live problems.

  • Interesting, it’s cheaper to live in Georgetown than Shaw now…still wouldn’t move to Georgetown
