The Craigslist ad says:

“Join the Roberta community, all utilities are included, approx 740sq ft, hardwood floors, and ceiling fans in each room. The buildings amenities included, are controlled access entry, 24hr emergency maintenance, and on site laundry facilities in the building. Walk to the grocery store, shops, banks, eateries, and much more!”

I’m curious if you guys think this is too far away from downtown? Does $1299 sound reasonable for this 1 bedroom?

    Not a bad deal, but I’d want a car.

    If you like to walk, this is a nice spot and decent price. Pleasant 10-15 minute walk to Friendship Heights Metro – or Comet and Politics and Prose. The bus to Van Ness would cut out the walk and a couple Red Line stops. Pretty good deal.

    I used to live one block from here. This is a good price for this area. However, I moved because it was far away from anything I wanted to do and with the metro being a 15 minute walk away and the L buses not seeming to run to an accurate schedule, it became very frustrating. Also, coming back late at night, you are sort of forced to take an expensive cab ride from downtown. Having said all that, this neighborhood is quiet – filled with families, the elderly and people who just moved to the city that didn’t realize how far away this area is from things (that’s what happened to me).
