  • Overpriced, esp. for the location.No mention of parking.

  • Way over priced. Nothing to do, no shopping, gotta have a car and parking is tight. Shelly be about 1200

    • maxwell smart

      First of all – that assumes everyone wants to live on U Street. This is not a terrible area that is has good access to bus lines (so no – don’t need a car) and reasonable close to Mt. Pleasant and Columbia Heights (shopping, food, things to do).

    • Are you kidding?
      Where in DC can you get a 1BR with w/d in unit, central A/C and an updated kitchen for 1200???

      Lived nearby for my entire 12 years in DC, no car, no problem. I actually almost bought a 2BR in this same development; all that stopped me was finding a fire sale price on a foreclosure a little north of here. I like peace and quiet. I would not pay $1500/month rent for ~400 sqft here or anywhere else either, but would rather live in this general area than in most other places in DC (I wish I could afford a single family home in Crestwood, but it just ain’t in the cards).

  • Hard for me to wrap my head around “garden” and “fantastic” describing the same place. Do you really want people to be able to stand at your windows?

    • What do you expect them to say,? “Terrible basement apartment”? “Pretty nice apartment, considering it’s ground-level”?
      As “garden” or “terrace” units go, this one seems reasonably nice.

  • Good deal – nice apartment for a nice price. Close to two major bus lines, and I imagine street parking is easily available if you have a car. “Pets ok case by case” – that would be worth something to a pet owner.

  • I can’t view the entire image with the floor plan (the PoPville real estate format seems to cut off the tops and bottoms of some images) — but I’m noticing something labeled “study.” I’m also noticing that it looks like the bathroom is accessible via a walk-in closet. Does that mean that this is technically a junior one-bedroom?
    I’m still trying to figure out how they squeezed everything (bedroom, living room, kitchen, bathroom, W/D closet) into 486 square feet. I lived in a place that was about 100 square feet larger, and it was adequate, but small.

  • If this unit was larger and not on the ground floor I would say that it is a good deal – but instead I think it’s overpriced by $100-200 a month. That said, someone with a pet might find it to be a good fit and be willing to pay more, assuming their is no pet fee (since other places often charge $25-50/month fee per pet, this may be comparable to other options in this price range).
