    I would not have included a picture of that cluttered closet – hate the carpet too. Still, this unit seems under-priced given the location, parking etc so assuming this in not a scam – good deal.

    I love that there is a hula hoop in one of the pictures

    This is definitely not a true one bedroom. I lived in an identical unit in this building a few summers ago and it is definitely just a studio with a bedroom alcove. The “bedroom” does not have a door and is only big enough to fit a bed and small dresser. The closet and bathroom are decent, but the kitchen is horrendously tiny with NO counter space. $2,000 is an outrageous ripoff, even with parking included. You can get a much nicer studio (which is actually called a studio and not passed off as a one bedroom) in the building next door for the same price.

      Ah, that explains it. I was about to say that with parking included it’s a great deal, even if the carpet is meh. But if it’s a “sleeping alcove” and not a true bedroom, thanks but no thanks.

      I lived in this unit. There’s french doors with glass between the bedroom and living room. And a solid sliding door between the bedroom and bathroom. I had a queen size bed, night table, dresser, and a shallow shelving unit in the bedroom.

  • Sometimes I hate DC.

  • I think this isn’t a bad deal, but the premium here is convenience. Private parking in that part of town, is at the very least $200 a month. Utilities are another, let’s say, $75 to $100? Full service building with pool, in that location? I’d say $2,000 is a decent deal, even with the unit being a glorified studio.

    What’s with pools in DC being open only from Memorial Day to Labor Day? I have some friends paying astronomical rents for the privilege of having a rooftop pool and they can only use it for 3 months out of the year, even if we regularly get temps in 80s and 90s for another few weeks after Labor Day.

    Is there a law stating that they can only be open for a limited amount of time?

      It gets expensive for a condo to pay for the life guard and pool maintenance. Probably it is open for 3 months for budgetary purposes.

        I’ve never seen a lifeguard at any of the building pools. Do most have them?

        Pool maintenance can’t be that crazy expensive, is it? I would assume that you would need a pool guy to come t a week to clean and adjust the Ph level. That’s maybe $500-1000 for the summer? Considering the premium rents, that’s really not much at all.

    We used to sneak up to this pool in college during the summer. Some attractive ladies and negative looks.

    Even if it’s a small unit, it’s a decent deal. Parking can cost up to $250/mo in that neighborhood and if the utilities are all electric, you’d could easily pay $100 in the peak heating or cooling months depending on the equipment.
