    I would but… that 16 month minimum. And all those noisy field hockey games across the street…

  • Frank

    You’d be surprised what rents on Craigslist. In fact I’d say it’s better than the more millenial apps (Zillow, Apartments.com, etc.) for high end stuff. I rented my house (~$8k) on CL, twice.

    who knows if anyone will remember, but is this the “Apostles” house from 12 years ago?

    • bll

      I don’t know the Apostles house, but this house was an absolute dump about 7 or so years ago. I went to an estate sale, and I considered it only slightly habitable. I’m excited to finally see the renovation.

    Perfect for Tiffany Trump while she attends law school!

      Except Georgetown Law is nowhere near this house…

      • maxwell smart

        OBVIOUSLY she is going to have a driver.

        • jaybird

          She might be the last Trump in town.

        • AdMoRez

          More like she’ll have a helicopter pilot.

  • DC Homeowner

    It looks like it is also on the market for $4.35m — https://www.redfin.com/DC/Washington/1609-35th-St-NW-20007/home/9930350

    Looking at other houses for sale this thing seems way overpriced — more than $1000/sf is a lot for Georgetown.

    • bll

      I just looked on redfin and it says $3.45. Still a lot of money, but did you maybe transpose the numbers?

      • DC Homeowner

        Yes — I managed to transpose the price. $1024/sf is still accurate though. Insane.

    • anon

      Is it strange that the Craigslist posting says it’s represented by TTR Sotheby’s International Realty, while the Redfin listing says it’s for sale with Central Properties?

  • Margrave of Mt. Vernon

    Good thing love is free, after rent nothing is left.

    No – but maybe their personal assistant is?

  • CathedralHeightsMetro

    But if rented as a group house, it’s only a reasonable $3250/month per bedroom!

    I believe this price is what we call the “opening offer” in a long bargaining process. This place won’t rent for $13K.
