The Craigslist ad says:

“Peaceful, private, and unique carriage house/studio/cottage available as early as Feb 1 in Petworth!

Newly renovated a year ago. High ceilings and a skylight make it seem much bigger than a normal studio. Comes with its own locked storage space in the garage, so you can keep your living space clutter-free. Located behind a beautiful old Victorian house on a quiet street. The carriage house shares the backyard with the main house, so you can garden and barbecue. Utilities not included.

Super conveniently located — 10-12 minute walk to Petworth metro, or if you prefer, bike downtown in 25-30 minutes from the new CaBi (bikeshare) dock two blocks away at Upshur & Georgia. Safeway and CVS about 10-12 minute walk; 5-8 minute walk to YES Organic Market, Qualia Coffee. Easy bike ride or more leisurely stroll to the bars and restaurants on 11th Street (Meridian Pint, Red Rocks, Wonderland) and everything in Columbia Heights (Red Derby, Target, Washington Sports Club). A nice jog or bike ride to Rock Creek Park on the weekends. Free outdoor pool in the neighborhood during the summers. For the nerdy and frugal among us, the stately Petworth Library is practically across the street.

If you want to live on your own affordably, but not in a generic building or a basement apartment, this is a great option!

Move-in dates are somewhat flexible — let me know what dates you need in Feb or March.”

This studio is going for $1390.
