    That looks closer in size to a breadbox than a den.

    GTFO with that “chef’s kitchen”. Oh wait, most chefs don’t even cook at home so I guess it’s fine.

    Nice kitchen but seems a tad pricey to be near the edge of civilization.

    Good deal. And yes the den is tiny but it’s the perfect size for a crib or a writing nook. I think Glover Park is a great option with slightly cheaper rents than Dupont and U street if you don’t mind bicycling to work or dealing with somewhat sporadic bus service.

    Man – we rent out our one-bedroom condo on 16th @Meridian Hill Park for like $1600. This is better? I mean Rocklands is great, but you can’t eat there every day.

    • Dan

      You are getting a fantastic deal.

      • Not really, sounds pretty normal to me. I pay $1485/month for a 1-bedroom and I’m a block over on 15th.

        I have no idea why someone would pay $1950 for this place, but each to his/her own.

  • I’m not looking to move anytime soon, but does anyone on here live in Glover Park without a car? It be would much handier for me to get to work, but I think on weekends I’d feel somewhat isolated. Thanks.

    • Also, I should add, I actually like Glover Park, too, it’s wouldn’t be merely to be closer to work. I’m just wondering what it’s like getting to other parts of the city.

      I live on the border between Georgetown and Glover Park (near 35th and Wisconsin). I have a car but only use it on weekends to go Home Depot or whatever out in VA. It’s not too bad getting to other places in the city, it just takes longer. The 30s buses on Wisconsin and the Circulator are really convenient and connect with the Foggy Bottom metro stop and downtown. The D buses take you to Dupont. Further down in Georgetown you can take the G2 bus across P street to 14th St/Logan Circle. But it is annoying going to Adams Morgan or Columbia Heights though, you have to transfer buses at some point. When I meet friends in on those areas of the city, I take the buses over there and cab it home at the end of the night.

      My girlfriend used to live in Glover and found it worse during the week than on the weekend. Takes a long time for the buses to get downtown and back during rush hour so she ended up with a 45+ minute commute each way to a job near Metro Center. She had a much better deal on rent than this. On the weekend it was easy enough to get into Georgetown or Dupont and though the buses run less often they are much quicker so you just have to check NextBus. The weekday was the soulkiller.

    I live in Glover Park now and I like the neighborhood and don’t find it too removed. But I pay 1460 for a 1-bedroom that appears bigger than this, not as updated, but bigger. 1950 seems steep to me especially with a galley kitchen that is in your den.

    • Agreed

    It looks like they took a small oven and stuck it in the wall, rather than installing a wall oven.

    I’ll take my whole house in Petworth for $1500/mo, Alex. I can use the price difference on cab fare.

  • Thanks everyone for your comments! Probably not this year but maybe next.
