This rental is located at Shepherd St NW near 5th St NW. The Craigslist ad says:

“$1,090 Room with sunroom in spacious rowhouse (Petworth)


We’re looking for someone to join us as a housemate starting April 1 (or as early as March 21), to cover the remainder of a lease that ends August 31, with an option to renew. You would be filling the third room in our house. Rent for the room is $1,090/month.

The house is a two-story, 3-bedroom, 2.5 bathroom rowhouse in Petworth. In addition to what the pictures show, the house also has a basement with washer/dryer and full bath, dishwasher and central air. It’s a pretty spacious rowhouse, with hardwood floors throughout (except tile in the kitchen and bathrooms). Sadly, no pets are allowed.

The room is 11’x18.5′, unfurnished, and is at the rear of the house with a south-facing sunroom portion and is plenty big enough for a bed, desk, dresser and bookshelf. A wardrobe and curtains can be included if need be. Utilities (internet, water, electric, gas) are split and are usually around $100-125/month per person, slightly more in winter.

We are two early 30s professional women who like to hang out but also enjoy our own time and space. One of us works in media, the other works in physical therapy. We’re both agreeable when it comes to house space and keep things on the tidy side.

Petworth is a nice neighborhood full of multi-colored rowhouses on tree-lined streets. The house is about a 10 minute walk from the Georgia Ave/Petworth metro station and close to several bus lines (70, 64, H8 among others). There’s also a Safeway a few blocks away as well as an organic grocery store if you prefer. As far as restaurants and bars, there are a bunch within a 10 minute walk, mostly on nearby Upshur Street and Georgia Avenue.

Ideally, you are mid 20s-mid 30s, any gender, financially stable (the landlords will require a background check and proof of income) and a low-key housemate. The house is LGBTQ-friendly and non-smoking, so hopefully you are too!

If you’re interested, please send us an email with “Petworth House” in the subject, so we know you’ve read this far, and please feel free to ask any questions. Due to Covid-19, any tours of the house will be done with masks on. Looking forward to hearing from you!”
