  • Basement unit and seems small (the bedrooms look tiny). I’m going with not a good deal.

  • Overpriced. You could get a basement apartment in Dupont for the same money.

  • Accountering

    This looks like a basement… No way is this a good deal. Seems like a small 2/1 full rowhome should be going for about this. I am saying at least $500 overpriced.

  • wow. that seems pricey. I live around the corner and my mortgage is less than 2500 (bought 4 years ago though). I feel like for 2500 you could live in a newer building with amenities (like roof deck, doorman, gym).

  • Looks like a very oddly cut up space that would have been better as a one-bedroom. But they did two to try to squeeze out more rent. It doesn’t always pay to do that.

  • Nooooooooooooo

  • Way overpriced! Is that room with the huge wall in the middle of it supposed to be a bedroom?

    • Well, they’re calling it a bedroom, but that doesn’t make it one. Honestly, I’m a few blocks away in a basement in Petworth, a 1 bedroom similar size, and I’m paying $1375 including utilities, cable and wifi. NOT a good deal at all. No one in their right mind is going to buy that this is a 2 BR worth what they’re asking.

  • I seriously considered buying this house (unrenovated) when it was on the market 3-4yrs ago. Partly because the bidding war on the house across Quebec went higher than I could afford. But also partly due the basement space and the LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION–across from the park and a couple blocks from metro. Unique patio front porch on main level (do a street view). Basement is further above ground than most basements and there is a bump out, so the basement square footage is GREATER than either the main or 2nd floor. Still, I can’t imagine more than one person living in this basement unit regardless of how many bedrooms there are.

    But…very overpriced. I rent a 3br house (with its own basement) around the corner for less than this. I have seen owner do a substantial dig-out of the front yard that I thought would result in a front basement entrance. Maybe it was plumbing related. I don’t recall a basement bathroom when I toured.

    I do applaud the owner for giving it a shot. Park View is a fantastic place to live. I’d say this is worth 1800 tops.

    • I was told that the front yard digging was related to the owner wanting rid of a weird slope to the yard, which didn’t make sense to me. When I saw it all dug up, I personally thought they’d put in larger windows and window wells.
      I would be truly bummed if I had passed on a house 3-4 years ago and was renting today in the same neighborhood. How long have you been renting that 3-bedroom house and in what state is it? I think in these transitioning neighborhoods, and maybe generally in cities, rents from 2 years ago is not comparable to what you can get now. I’m pretty sure you’d be better off having purchased a home around there 4 years ago than renting now. Yay Park View!

  • One the worst rental of the day deal I have ever seen on this site. Potential tenants – Please, for the sake of all DC renters, do not pay this price.

    Exposed brick for an exterior wall? Even if it’s partly below grade, it might get chilly come winter (as I recently found out)

  • west_egg

    Only in overhyped, overpriced DC real estate parlance does “ground floor” means “your apartment is dug out of the ground.”

  • SilverSpringGal

    Gorgeous renovation. I think, for the location and renovation, 2K if the bedrooms weren’t so weird. It’s really one bedroom and an office-type room.

    • Still overpriced. Renovation is adequate, no where near gorgeous! And for perspective, I rent out a 800+ sq. ft. one bedroom basement apt. – good light, 9 ft. ceilings, but still a basement – 1/2 block to Columbia Heights Metro for $1875.00.

      Unless you find a roomate who wants to sleep on a cot in the weird room with the wall in the middle, this is a one-bedroom apt. and as such, vastly overpriced.

      • For full comparison, does your 1-bedroom rental near Columbia Heights also have in-unit washer/dryer, a new bathroom with an all-glass shower enclosure, a kitchen with new appliances and granite counter tops, recessed lightining, a walk-in closet, a private patio and off-street parking? Does it allow pets? Other than the recessed lighting and walk-in closet, the other items kind of add $100 each to a rental, I would think (even with the extra monthly $ for a pet). And even if it has a funky L-shape, there is still that second bedroom.
