    Not nearly enough pics of the living room. Who knows what it REALLY looks like…

    ugh – its really pretty in that sleek, modern, clean way that I like (that is not everyone’s jam) but that price…Im guessing its in line with other rentals in the area, but seems steep given theres only 1 bath.

      It does include parking, though, which in that area must be worth at least $250/month.

        You can find cheaper and street parking is always an option. That price is awful.

        Also uncovered parking. So unless you are worried about people bumping into your car when parking, the added benefit is slim.

    There is a giant gap where the marble counter tops don’t cover the bottom cabinet next to the fridge… also it looks like you could barely fit a pot of water for pasta between the microwave and stove. This is clearly a reno where someone was trying to check trendy boxes rather than building a quality functional kitchen.

  • I miss that block :(
    When I lived just down the street in a 2br/1.5ba I moved from 2011-2013 and was paying $3200-3400, I think, for 1900 sqft with no parking…so $3500 today seems super reasonable to me given how much growth has occurred there, especially with a parking space, even if the total size is smaller.

    I always thought living on a one-way would be a plus, until I moved to one.

      So glad not to call Columbia Rd home anymore!

        I sooo miss living on Columbia Rd = but then, I lived on the best part of it.

    Other than the vomit ball trees, I lived on this block many years ago and it is still my favorite block in DC. This was when Rice was pretty much the only thing on 14th Street. I also paid less than $1,000/month for a one bedroom/one bath. I can’t imagine what that place goes for now. This was back just after Barney Frank lived on that block.

    It does make me sad to see these gorgeous houses on that block gutted and turned into tiny condos. When I lived on that block, most were still intact. There was also a plaque on that street in one of the tree beds for all of the residents who died during the AIDS epidemic. My old landlord who bought his home there in the 1980s once pointed out several houses on that one block where his neighbors had died of AIDS in the 80s. So much history probably lost on that street.
