The Craigslist ad says:

“A fun, considerate crew of 3 housemates is looking for a fourth. We’re a very DC house, in that we’re all 20somethings from somewhere else and are either feds or nonprofit types, but we’re definitely not fixated on politics and networking; likewise, although we enjoy each other’s company, we can be very busy people and go a week (or two)without all four of us being around at once.

When we do have the chance to hang out together, we enjoy catching up over beers on the porch, cooking (and eating!), planning outings to nearby restaurants, and throwing the occasional party. Starting August 1 or 2, we will have one very spacious room available for a one-year lease on the second floor of our recently renovated, dinner party-perfect house located right by Rock Creek Park. The room has hardwood floors, a huge closet with mirrored doors, a private bathroom, and three windows overlooking 16th St and our front porch.

We currently have 3 women (one of which is moving out) and 1 man living together, which has worked out well; but we are open to restoring gender balance. Please be the responsible, employed, rent-paying, kitchen-cleaning, non-smoking, queer-friendly, interesting type.

We’re environment and energy conscious and like to keep our heat low, our AC off (at least as much as possible), and our compost bin non-smelly. We split utilities, which usually run $40-80/month. Rent is $975/month and includes a monthly cleaning service and gardener. Though we love animals, we are a no-pet house. The house is on 16th Street, which puts much of the city in easy reach, and the Columbia Heights metro within a 12 minute walk. If you’re interested in joining a fun, smart house, please drop us a line and tell us a little bit about yourself and what you are looking for in a living situation!”

Think $975 sounds reasonable?
