The Craigslist ad says:

We live in a gorgeous historic Brownstone on Logan Circle in a group home of five young professional women, and are looking for either one or two people to live in the master bedroom of our incredible house!

The room is the entire top floor, with a separate entrance via the fire escape, as well as an entrance through the rest of the house. It is quite simply… HUGE. We’ve had two girls sharing the space for the last few years, which has worked perfectly because it is essentially two rooms connected by open shelving, and both sides are approximately equal in space/size. There is a ridiculous walk-in closet with more hanging space than would ever be necessary, built in dressers and tons of storage space. The bathroom has two sinks, a tub (with jets) and a shower (with three shower heads). The room is carpeted and has cable access.

Rent is $1670 total for the room. The move in date is August 1.

Utilities usually run $50 per person once per month, which include all the basic utilities plus internet/premium cable and a cleaning service every once in a while.

The house has a large kitchen, a washer/dryer, a living room, a back deck, and an unfinished roof that we like to pretend is a finished roof.

About us- we’re in our mid-twenties, love to have fun on the weekends, but are usually pretty low key during the week… watching slightly-embarrassing television and cooking dinner. This is a group house, but because the layout of the house is very divided, there is a lot of privacy for everyone, and the top floor has more than enough room to be treated as a separate apartment in and of itself.

This house isn’t around Logan Circle… it’s on Logan Circle. Closer than imaginable to Whole Foods, VIDA gym, Logan Tavern, Studio Theatre, Starbucks and Caribou, and etc etc etc, and only a ten minute walk to the Red Line (Dupont Circle) or the Green/Yellow Line (Shaw/Howard) or the Orange/Blue Line (McPherson Sq). Two buses literally stop at our doorstep, one that goes directly to Georgetown and another that goes downtown. The 14th St. Corridor opens a new restaurant/bar every weekend it seems, U St. is only a few more blocks up and Metro Center and Chinatown are just a short walk away.

Our space is honestly unbelievable, because not only is it insanely large, but it has tons of character without sacrificing quality as often is the case in historic homes.

$1670 sound right for this arrangement in a mansion on Logan Cirlce?
