The Craigslist ad says:

“You now have a great opportunity to lease this nice 1 bedroom apartment located only 1/2 block away from the Petworth Metro Station.

* Heat, water and hot water included with the rent. Tenant pays electricity and cooking gas.
* Laundry facilities in the basement.
* Off-street parking available for $100.00/month on the premises.
* On-site resident manager.
* Cable and high speed Internet ready.”

We spoke about this place in Oct. and people were generally fans so wanted to let folks know another room became available. This 1 bedroom is yours for $1183.

For those looking to live closer to 14th St, NW in Columbia Heights, this could be a good option for $1400 at 1435 Newton St NW.

  • I live in a building managed by FAS and they blow. BLOW. I think that it’s a decent price though. Wish my place had hardwood floors.

    • Really? I found FAS to be one of the better landlords I ever had. In any city, from Virginia to DC to NY to California over 18 years.

      Responsive. Easy to deal with. And got my full deposit back.

    This is an older building without many of the amenities you might get in a newer building, but you’d have a hard time finding a better place anywhere in the neighborhood. It’s less than 1 block to the metro and about a 5 minute walk to 11th St in Columbia Heights. I’d say it’s a deal.

    Sorry, I meant to say it would be hard to find a better deal anywhere in the neighborhood. There are nice apts, but probably not cheaper ones ;-)

  • I looked in this building in 2007. A one bedroom was $850. It’s shocking to me that the price could go up by 50% in that period. Shocking and rather upsetting. Especially considering how small the apartments are. I live in Brooklyn now, my rent is $1200. I have a 30 minute commute to Lower Manhattan. Or 20 minutes to Union Square. Two bedrooms. And all with rent control. I still fail to see how the prices of DC make sense.
