  • Whaaaaa?! I knew Georgetown was expensive, but that’s ridiculous. It looks liveable enough, but feels like a basement and the furniture is bleh.

  • First, what does access to a washer and dryer mean? Is it in the apartment or do you have to use someone elses? Also, cozy is a very loose term for that “porch.” Yeah, I am definitely gonna spend lots of time hunched on that chair under a staircase.

    • My guess is that “access to washer and dryer” means you share a washer and dryer with the rest of the house. I lived in the upstairs part of a row house and there was a washer/dryer room in the basement that we shared with the residents in the basement apartment.

  • Just think about the single cup of coffee or individual serving of toast you could have on that porch.

  • For $100 less per month, you can live at Kew Gardens 2 blocks away, in an upstairs apartment with plenty of windows,

  • What a shitty deal.
    Georgetown apartments are actually pretty affordable in those big old buildings on P Street NW. My friends just gave up a 2BR/1BA for $1600 to move out of the country. And they only had the place for one year! Many of the 1BRs go for $1400-1600. They’re old and none have amenities or in-unit W/D, but they are all sizable and in a safe ‘hood.

    • I think those big apartment buildings on P and Q are the best kept rental secret in DC. Like you say nothing fancy, but reasonable rents, easy access to Rock Creek Park, Dupont/Gtown/downtown/VA, and quiet in a good way.

      • But cue the people who complain about “finishes” or horror or horrors, window A/C units.

        • “I think those big apartment buildings on P and Q are the best kept rental secret in DC”

          Completely agree. I lived in a small 2 BR on Q St for 3 years and paid $1,575 per month. Had a postage stamp sized kitchen and W/D in building basement but I lived there on my own so the 2 BR felt very spacious.

  • “cozy front porch” = naughty chair in a ditch.

  • Wow. That is an ambitious price tag for a teeny tiny basement studio apartment that is furnished like a dorm room.

    • Seriously. You get 2x as much space with real person ceiling heights for less money 2 blocks away. Not furnished, but really, all this place provides is a bed and 2 lamps.

      • And I really don’t feel like a place being furnished makes it a better deal unless you are a short term or young renter and don’t have much furniture of your own. For any established adult, all a furnished apartment means is that you will have to add storage unit fees to your rent cost.

  • My dog was looking for something under 2000. I think this will do for his needs since he is only 15 pounds

  • That place looks like a cell at the supermax facility in Colorado.
