  • Ah, this is really cute. If my budget was just a little bigger and it was closer to a bus/metro to work….

  • It looks really nice, but who are these people who can afford $1500 studios?

    • Good question. I’d counter with “Where is anyone finding studios that are less than $1500 and actually in DC proper” (aside from maybe columbia heights and petworth).

      • The Calverton! That’s where my husband and I live- ~500 sq feet, updated kitchen, awesome location, and about $1300/month. Still obscene, but we had moved from a $1600/month studio in Van Ness- blah!

      • Studios can still be found in the $1300-$1400 range in Mount Pleasant, in rent-controlled buildings. I looked at an $1125 studio in mid-2013 on Mozart St NW in Adams Morgan.

      Considering there are studios in DC renting for $2400 on 14th street that are maybe half the size of this studio and a far worse layout, I’d would start expecting studios in DC, esp. ones with proximity to Adams Morgan and Dupont to easily ask $1500.

    • I think it’s pretty affordable for consultants, World Bank / IMF people, finance folks, lawyers, etc. I’m none of these so it is definitely out of my price range :/

    • The 2 people I know renting a studio in that range: teacher (living way above her means) and government worker bee. If you only have 1 bill to worry about besides general expenses, these things become much more affordable. Still a crazy price, but it’s likely a good deal for the layout.

    • I earn 50k, pay $1500 for my apartment, and save plenty. No student debt, which helps. But given that’s way under median individual income for the city, I would imagine a lot of people can….

  • Good price, but one coat closet for the entire place? All the studios I’ve seen have had at least one really big closet/dressing area.

      I usually feel like big closet = compensating for bad layout and tiny kitchen. This is probably one of the best laid out studios I have seen – Having the kitchen in it’s own “room” is a big plus, IMO. I hate the idea of sleeping in the kitchen. I can’t imagine going to bed and my sheets smelling like curry.

  • Great for the single person who likes to cook–much larger kitchen than your average studio.

  • Wow, really cute. If it had a washer/dryer I would move in in a heartbeat. Alas, I am spoiled with mine.

    • W/D is in the basement in this building. Not as convenient as an in-unit W/D but hey, you can meet your neighbors over laundry!

  • This is a good deal. Nice to have separate kitchen. But it isn’t a large studio like later-designed studio apartments, with more living space, and a row of closets in the entry hall. It’s a bedroom (a room about the size of a bedroom in a lot of old row houses) with a real kitchen, a dining area and bath attached. However, if you can live in a room this size, and can deal with not having great views, it is a great location – I used to live on that block, and still wish I did. And it IS close to the metro – 10-12 minute walk to Dupont, 12-14 minute walk to Woodley Park.

    Good deal! Super cute! Not as cute studios in my building are creeping up to $1700.

  • If you want to stretch another $175-275 in rent, and can deal with being a bit further out in DC, you can usually rent much larger one bedrooms – with a big bedroom, bigger living room, and similar kitchen and dining area – 650-750 sq ft. total, far up Ct. Ave. in the District, or in Glover Park.

  • Nice layout, and that kitchen is better than the kitchen I have in my 1BR. The living space is kind of narrow, though, with only one closet, which could make it a tight squeeze. Good price for the area though.

  • Looks like a good deal to me. Nice kitchen & eating area in separate space, not too cramped, and great location for the price+space. I think the lack of closet space is more of a problem than no dishwasher, but you could do something in the dining area.
