The Craigslist ad says:

“GLOVER PARK — 2BR/1BA apartment located on the 3900 block of W Street! Apartment is on top floor of an end unit building (windows all around!). Equipt with dw, a/c, w/d, hardwood floors, bay window in living room, rear yard & off street parking. Walking distance to shops, restaurants & nightlife on Wisconsin Avenue and Metro bus stops are just one block away. Whitehaven Parkway is right across the street! NO PETS.”

I’m thinking with a roomate this could be a really good deal. What do you guys think – $1795 sound reasonable for this 2 bed/1 bath?

    I used to live a block away from this apartment on W Street, probably in the same style of building (four-apartment building). Very quiet. If this building backs into Whitehaven Park, and I think it does, you’ll see all sorts of wildlife in your back yard: deer, foxes, racoons.

    You’ll have to rely on the not-really-reliable D2 or 30-series buses to get around if you don’t have a car.

    We lived in the neighborhood in 2003 and 2004. There’s a lot more along the nearby Wisconsin Avenue strip now than there was then. Whole Foods is a pretty easy walk, and the new Social Safeway isn’t much further (tho it is an uphill walk on the way back). I think we paid $1,600 a month for our place, which looks pretty similar to this one. So good deal, I guess?

    I lived in GP for 5 years. Be prepared to spend hours searching for parking. Also, top floor of a four-story building gets old when there is no elevator.

    I sound like such a lazy fat-ass.

      Listing says it has off-street parking. And if it’s like the building I lived in on this street, it’s only two floors.

    I think it’s a fair deal, but way further out of the way than I’d want. It’s a good deal for a young couple with a baby, possibly, too because there’s a lot of that demographic (along with the just-out-of-Georgetown group houses) in the neighborhood.
