The Craigslist ad says:

On a quiet street 1 block from PA Ave. and oodles of restaurants, shops & cafes. This world famous area of world leaders, celebrities, activists and spies actually has a quiet backdrop of fun, & down-home friendliness, so this area is more like a small town or village.

If you’re Interested…
If you (or you two) live shoeless indoors, and have your fun w/out cigarettes nor pet nor pipe, this may be the inspiring spot you’ve been looking for. Only serious (no humorless) applicants please. Any questions, or to arrange an appointment;
We’d like a 1-2-year lease with 1 month security deposit and 1 months rent upfront. There is also a $45 application fee per applicant (what we pay for Ur credit check).
The apartment will be available in mid December-early January. We’ll post photos later of the apartment—we’re finishing some renovations. The house has a beautiful façade.”
This one jumped out at me for a couple of reasons. First the title says, “Oh Bliss! the best, safest & friendliest location in the heart of…” which made me laugh. And the second was the part that says – “If you (or you two) live shoeless indoors” really made me scratch my head. That has to be one of the more unusual caveats I’ve read in one of these ads.
Anyway, does $1700 sound reasonable for this 1 bedroom?
