  • I wouldn’t say the ‘heart’ of CH. Definitely a more classic taste which is different from the typical. Not sure about the price though, too high in my opinion given it would still be +1100 each and somebody would be sharing a bathroom if it was a group house situation. Probably suited more for a family though

  • I’d much rather rent something like this than a penthouse condo in a large high-rise building, but damn, that’s a lot of money, I’d rather finance a $500k house for that.

    • GL finding a nice 3brd in this area for that price. Also would have to come up with a 100k downpayment…

      • This would finance a 800k house. Granted, you need the 160k for the downpayment, but if you have it, you have a mortgage in the $3,000 range. I am sure for 800k in this neighborhood, I could get something nicer than this house.

  • Even though I’m in a group house around the corner from here and paying less, this seems like a decent deal.

  • “just steps to DC USA” – Google Maps says the house is a half mile from DC USA. That comes out to 1000 steps. Also, if it’s closer to the Petworth Metro, how is it in the heart of Columbia Heights?

    Other than that, it looks nice.

  • This is my house and thanks to PoP for giving us the free publicity. I am otherwise going to try to refrain from point, counter-point. I do have to say that it is really interesting being on the other side of one of these postings.

    • Why not show one picture of any of the 3 bedrooms? Or give dimensions of the bedrooms? You’re asking for a lot for this rental (I’m sure way more than your mortgage) so at least give the prospective renters some helpful info.

      Sorry to be cranky but I’m so tired of seeing real estate ads with no bedroom pictures.

  • No clue how they are going to get $3500 a month for it. I would say it is more like $3,000. I know if I was going with two friends, there is no way I would be willing to pay $1200 to split this place.

  • lol, so the heart of columbia heights has been relocated to the absolute northern border of columbia heights
