    Good grief. Does the almost $24k rent come with that Louis Vuitton bag in the kitchen?

        I think this unit must be at ground/English basement level, at least for some of the rooms.

          And this rent might be reasonable if it were for a unit that were higher up and had more than a couple of windows that actually open. I’ve looked at this building before. The top level units have huge private roof decks with incredible views of the city and it’s half a block from Meridian Hill Park, but there are definitely some pretty “transitional” areas in the surrounding blocks.

          It’s a ground level apartment judging by the images.

      i love on this street in a building 3 down….2 bed room 1 bath for 2450. Yikes on the price for this guy. Hope my management company still has their head up there butt on how little we are paying for this ‘transitional’ (way past that) neighborhood.

    Is this price a joke? I often think DC rental units are over-priced, but this is beyond anything I’ve seen. For that location and that uninspiring unit, that price is absurd.

    Am I really the only one who thinks this is relatively market rate and reasonable for a large one bedroom in a good neighborhood (not really transitional anymore)?

      That block might not be considered transitional anymore, but you don’t have to go more than a few blocks north or east to find it.

    I can’t really tell by the floor plans and pictures, but it’s a 1 bd plus den, so it might work as a two bedroom, in which case the rent is pretty reasonable.
