The listing says:

“Restored and Renovated 1900’s Victorian. This beauty has 4BR’s, 3.5BA’s and walnut floors throughout. The stately main floor is replete with high ceilings, restored moldings, WB FP’s, & large formal DR; A half BA, and Gourmet Cook’s kitchen complete this level. The master BR has a true master bath! Enjoy urban views from the large upper-level deck. 1-2 car PKG. Where luxury and convenience meet!”

This 4 bed/3.5 bath is going for $6,750/Mo.

  • I thought a true master bath would contain a St Andrew’s cross?

    Is there really much of a market out there for a rental at this price point?

  • j

    that seems extremely high — i could see $4000/mo though.

      4,000 isn’t even in the ballpark for this property. I agree it may be slightly over priced. Someone makes a good point you really don’t have a lot of comps. They must not be able to sell, you really risk renters tearing up a renovation (if 4 ppl sharing).

      Luxury 2 BRs go for about 4k that close to the Metro.

    Great space, location, and finishes. The bedrooms look large. Not many 4-bdrm rentals out there like this.

    Jesus that’s crazy. Even if used as a group home, it’s $1600+ a month per person if divided evenly.

    $1600 per person is, unfortunately, almost exactly what a one-bedroom apartment goes for in my building, which is a few blocks away. And people are willing to pay it. (I got in when the rents were low)

      Yea, I know. But one of the largest points of living in a group house was cheaper rent.

      • Agreed — if $1600/month buys a one-bedroom apartment, I’d take that over a $1600 room in a group house.

    Obligatory post about how lots of people in DC make a lot of money. Partner average is 600k or more at a law firm, and there’s a lot of ’em.

    Would be a very nice home for someone with a large family who needs the space.

    It was previously listed for rent at 5500.


    It sold four years ago for 750k.

    6750 would be nearly double the mortgage payment. Even though they clearly spent a lot of money on the house, 6750 is way too high, especially if it recently rented for 5500 in its current condition. This is just wishful thinking.

    Basements in this neighborhood easily go for over 2 grand. This is not that over the top.
