The flier says:

“Historic Capitol Hill Luxery Townouse, 2 BR, 1½ BA, for rent. ** PRISTINE **. Professionally Decorated, Hardwood Floors, Exposed Bric, granite and SS kitchen. Spacious master bd rm. lots of Closet Space. Large bath rm w/ jacuzzi tub. Central A/C.”

You can find more info and photos here.

Does $2000 per month sound reasonable?

  • Chris in Eckington

    First off, that’s not Capitol Hill, it’s Near Northeast, and secondly, I wouldn’t describe something originally built as workforce housing a “luxery townhouse”.

    That said, it seems like an OK deal; the Metro’s not too far off and you’ve got H Street right there, but the kicker is definitely the jacuzzi tub.

  • Ragged Dog

    $1k for a bedroom is pretty steep in this hood. You still have hookers on the weekends! Go 5 blocks south (up the hill) and you’re in good shape.

  • nonesuch

    I live in the area and think 1500 is more reasonable. But I can’t get the link to work to see more photos. The closest metro is going to be about .75 miles

  • $2000 for just a few blocks from Trinidad! Fantastic!

    Well, in Bizarro DC, perhaps.

  • Eric in Ledroiit

    how luxereous!

  • annon

    its too much for that area. i am renting out 3 br 1.5 bath TH in col heights. not luxurious but its clean, for $2000.

  • Columbia Heights Boy

    Too much!

  • 5th street

    sounds about right it all depends on the square footage. The area is a little dicey. However its close to H street and the New York Ave Metro. Now that I think about it ,I would pay 2000.00 per month.

  • Amy Linacre

    This is reasonable and even below market. I am renting out a under 900 sq ft minihouse in columbia heights or park view (depending what you call it – not to start a flame war, but just to say the house isn’t right on top the metro)for 2k/mo. It’s a 2/1 renovated space. We’ve tenants in there since 2008 and have not raised the rent on them because they’re wonderful but we could (rent has gone up int he last 2 years both in H st and Columbia Hieghts).

  • you’d have to pay me to live there. way too much!
