I saw this posting for a basement rental in Bloomindale [Adams St NW at 2nd St NW] and I was curious to get readers perspectives on it.
Our brand new, fully renovated walk-out basement on the border of LeDroit Park and Bloomingdale will be perfect for someone who loves light, a big open feel, and close access to all the activity on Georgia Ave, U St, North Capitol and 1st St! Large south-facing windows let in direct sun all day long, to compliment full-height ceilings, exposed brick, and full-sized entry/exit doorways. The unit has a contemporary styling, tile floors, and all brand-new stainless appliances. It has in-unit laundry (washer/dryer), Elfa storage solutions in the closet, and is completely closed off from the upstairs–complete privacy! Although there is plenty of street parking, off-street parking is negotiable. We are asking $2,300/month.
The place looks pretty sweet but I was a little surprised to see how much it was renting for. Has bloomingdale come this far?”
Ed. Note: I think it depends on how much light the unit gets. And obviously this one is totally renovated too. So what do you guys think is $2300/mo reasonable for this one?

Amazing. Thanks again to all who donated and major props to crew from Boundary Stone who are among the rare few in this town that quietly walk the walk. To those who disparage “new” Washingtonians at every opportunity – these are neighbors that DC is lucky to call their own.
