1254 Half St Sw

This rental is located at 1254 Half Street, SW. The craigslist ad says:

“$925 / 4br – Room available in Townhouse in Navy Yard/Ballpark/Waterfront

Bedroom available in group townhouse between Navy Yard and Waterfront Metros, and two short blocks from Nationals Stadium.

Room available is on the second story overlooking the back yard and alley, close enough to the ballpark that you can see fireworks or hear summer concerts with the window open. Available April 1st.


This is a group house with individual leases. The roommates are one guy and one girl, both government contractors in their late 20’s, as well as a cat who is very calm and fun. The house has one and half bathrooms, but we have not had any issues sharing the full bathroom as our schedules are conveniently staggered. Washer/dryer in unit.

The house is situated very close to a lot of new restaurants in the Navy Yard area, walking distance to the new Waterfront Renovation area, multiple grocery stores, and only a few blocks from the metro station. If you do have a car, street parking is DC Zone 6, which costs about $35/year to get a permit.

There is a second room available in this house as well, so if you and a friend are looking together, you could move in together.”

    Oh, come on! At that price (unless I am THICK from H St NE “grey matter” and misunderstanding something)…. this rental price seems suspiciously low…. I’ll retreat to my safe haven tho in case local (Americans) people know something I don’t (after 17 yrs in DC…)

    • It’s a room in a house not the whole house.

        Oh. It seems you DO know something I don’t. Thank you!

    The pictures of the back yard look like the photos I saw in a murder trial I was a juror on in that area some time ago. IIRC, it was on Half St SW.

    So a grand in rent these days gets you a jail-sized room in a house full of thrift store furniture with three other people sharing one shower. Awesome.
