  • Wow, does anyone else think that’s a lot for a 1/1 eng basement for that area?

  • $2K for a 1 bedroom basement nowhere near a metro…. best of luck to you. The place looks great and I hope you get full asking price!

  • Woooooow, that’s pricey. I used to live, uh, VERY close to this place and watched the renovations happen. It’s an OK location – 15 minute walk to Union Station or Eastern Market Metro stations, CaBi station on the corner, X8 bus to Union during rush hours, a couple of blocks from the 90/92, X2, and D6 buses. Close to H St restaurants/nightlife. Annoyingly far away from grocery stores, though. And you can live in a non-basement, in a more happening neighborhood, for the same amount or less. I will be surprised if it goes for that much.

  • Very well-done renovation, and nice looking apartment. The rent, however, is too high in my view (I rent out the basement in my house, so not just complaining about high rent – I generally try to check what things are going for, and this is steep).

  • I live in a basement in the area and this is well above what most newly renovated basements in the area are going for. That said, I wouldn’t be surprised if they find a taker.

  • Really curious what the asking price is to buy since it says for sale or rent. Looks like the full house was taken off the market at $1.125 million earlier this summer, and now the upper unit being rented at $3500/month.

  • Nice, but overpriced. I live a few blocks away and pay far less than this for a not-quite-as-modern 1st floor 1br with much more character. But will this rent out for 2k? Likely.
