Today’s Rental has “Friendly neighbors on a tree-lined street”

This rental is located at 16th and Monroe Street, NW. The Craigslist ad says:

“$3795 / 3br – 1800ft2 – Gorgeous 3BR house on the most beautiful +safest block in Columbia Hts

Beautiful 3-bathroom row house on what is honestly the best + friendliest street in Columbia Heights/Mt Pleasant, Monroe St. NW. The house is an urban oasis – it is quiet, spacious with high ceilings, and great for entertaining. It has beautiful exposed brick walls, a large master bedroom that gets tons of light, original hardwood floors, a finished basement, all new stainless steel appliances, a great kitchen with natural light, thoughtful mood lighting, brand new A/C and central radiator heating, a lovely backyard patio for BBQ’ing or having dinner outside, and a private parking spot for two cars in back.
Available April 1.

Super convenient location: you will be downtown at work in 20-30 minutes door to door using bus or metro. It’s 2 blocks from Target/Best Buy, Giant, and Columbia Heights Metro and 2 min walk to 16th street that has fast buses straight to downtown.

Friendly neighbors on a tree-lined street: The house is on a lovely tree-lined, quiet street that has a very neighborhood feel. The neighbors are fantastic – they do a block party in the summer and a progressive dinner in the winter (where different houses host dinner courses, and around 75 people go house-to-house on the block). I honestly think this is the best block in the neighborhood.

Great neighborhood restaurants and bars within a 5-minute walk. All of these are a short walk away:
• In Mt Pleasant you have Elle, which has been nationally reviewed; Beau Thai, probably the best Thai food in DC, Mola, great Spanish tapas.
• On 11th street you have Maple, a romantic wine bar and Italian food; Meridian Pint, a haven for craft beer lovers and good trivia nights, Red Rocks Pizza, some of DC’s best Neapolitan pizza, and Room 11, a very nice wine bar.
• On 14th street you have Little Havana, DC’s hottest new Cuban restaurant; Taqueria Habanero and Mezcaleria, competing for DC’s best tacos and margaritas, and Red Derby, a fun dive bar.

The house is roomy and gets a lot of light.

• Large master bedroom with walk-in closet and large bay window that lets in tons of light
• Beautiful original hardwood floors on 1st and 2nd floors, exposed brick walls, and historic moldings that give the house a modern yet historic feel
• Two other bedrooms upstairs that were recently redone and repainted. One has exposed brick.
• Recently renovated bathroom with a clawfoot bathtub and redone shower
• Downstairs is fantastic for entertaining. Large living room and dining room, separated by a foyer.
• Modern kitchen with brand new hardwood floors, beautiful granite countertops, backsplash, new stainless steel microwave and dishwasher, and gas stove and oven. Brand new excellent LG refrigerator.
• High quality Pella glass doors in front and back
• Private parking spot for 2 cars
• Brand new central A/C, and warm radiator heating
• Working wood fireplace for romantic evenings
• Nice patio for barbeques and outdoor brunches in back.
• Beautiful entrance hallway with hanging Edison bulbs
• Granite stone stairs and entrance
• New washer and dryer

Two blocks from nature: gigantic Rock Creek Park is on the other side — great for hikes, long, walks, and biking. 10 min walk to Meridian Hill/Malcolm X park for picnics. 10 min walk to bars/restaurants in Adams Morgan.

If you think this sounds like a good fit for you, email with a bit about yourself and the group that would move in. 1 month security deposit required. Thank you”
