    This price seems reasonable, I’ve looked at a lot of similar units around this price all along Ct Ave. And before people can start criticizing the neighborhood, maybe I’ll just clarify that it seems like a reasonable price **not for you, but for someone who does not mind/wants to live in this neighborhood**.

    The pictures! Is it even possible to take such lo-res pictures in 2012?

    Nowadays, this is what passes as a good deal. Three years ago, you could get similar by a Metro station, but certainly no longer. At least there’s a bus line.

      Exactly. While this area has a certain *ahem* cozy charm about it – there is not a lot up that way in the way of nightlife.

    Interestingly, this might actually be a true Wardman house. Many houses claim to be Wardmans, but this one has some things that make me think this one is genuine such as parquet floors, and location at the corner of Jocelyn and Ct Ave (a location that Harry Wardman did build in).

    If only the w/d were not in the bathroom. I’d still consider renting it if i were in the market for a new crib
