This rental is located at 17th and Corcoran St, NW. The listing says:

“This is a rare opportunity to rent a beautiful two-level apartment at the intersection of 17th and Corcoran. The apartment is one of three units in a late-19th century row house located on 17th Street (it’s the red brick building that has Prego Again on the ground floor).

The unit is on the top two floors of the building and gets ample light from three skylights and multiple large windows. The kitchen has granite countertops and plenty of cabinet space. Central A/C, hardwood floors, and lots of character, including two alcoves upstairs.

The location is perfect. Safeway is across the street and all of the restaurants and bars on 17th Street are at your doorstep. Whole Foods is a 5 minute walk, Trader Joe’s a 10 minute walk, and the Dupont metro is 5 minutes away.

Tenant pays for electric. Washer and dryer is shared by the other two tenants, but is free and always available. Unfortunately no pets are allowed. Roof is accessible from the bedroom.

Feel free to email with any questions or if you would like to schedule a viewing. Apartment available October 30.”

This 1 bed/1 bath is going for $2,500/Mo.

    Any photos of the bedroom? I just see the kitchen and the living room.

      Hi Dave,
      This is my listing and unfortunately I didn’t include any pics of the bedroom. You can slightly see it in the picture of the dining room table (on the left near the mirror). It’s a good size bedroom with three windows, a skylight, and a separate alcove where we put a lounge chair and a lamp by a window. The bathroom is also located off of the bedroom.

        Would you be able to give me your email address? I’d like to view this apartment!

    Looks like a decent deal for a spacious one-bedroom in a desirable area.

      Unique apartment in a great location, seems fairly spacious for the neighborhood. And private outdoor space? Awesome for watching tonight’s race or Pride Parade.

    I suppose you are paying for location with this one. I just can’t understand why anyone would pay this much for only 800 sq. ft. I pay $100 more for 1300 sq ft and a patio.

      Some people would prefer to not live in Rosslyn.

        We pay significantly less than this for a 2000 square foot house in NE DC with a large yard so you might want to adjust your perception of DC real estate, size and price. It’s highly probable that satinger does not in fact live in Rosslyn.

          And some people would prefer not to live in NE DC (nothing wrong with it but after four years in Cap Hill prefer living in certain parts of NW).

        I live in Shaw…

    If you had $2500 for a 1 BR you could do worse. Looks like it has a ton of light. Will say that stool right next to no railing is giving me vertigo.

    Why can’t I see the pics anymore in Chrome? Rarely does it work for any of the real estate pages on PoP.

    Moved from DC a year ago and I’m amazed at how prices continue to rise. I live in an apartment almost identical to this in New York near Central Park and my rent is only $100 more a month.

    • OP Anon

      You’re way under-paying for NYC. Or you live in Spanish Harlem which is in no way comparable to Dupont Circle. Rents in NYC are way more crazy than $2500 for one of the safest, most walkable, and most transit connected neighborhoods in the city. You’d need to compare this price to those in Union Square, Nolita, or the Village.

        Totally agree with this. I moved to DC from New York two years ago and even undesirable parts of Brooklyn had one bedrooms going for $3,000. I know there are studios in the UWS of New York for around $2,500, but they’re generally tiny and rundown. I think K must have a really good deal. By the way, even though this is my listing, I’m not the owner of the apartment, just the current tenant. I actually think this apartment could go for more than $2,500 based on other listings we’ve seen in the neighborhood. But I agree that the DC housing market is getting insane. I had hoped to buy when I moved here, but I was significantly overbid on the three apartments where I submitted an offer.
