This week in What X Rents You, UrbanTurf looks in the $1,600-a-month range to see what choices are out there for prospective renters in the DC area with this monthly budget.
A Roomy Studio Across From Sidwell Friends
This studio on Wisconsin Avenue is on the top floor of a building at McLean Gardens, and residents get access to amenities including a pool and a gym. It’s a bit roomier than studios closer to downtown, with a small entryway, room for a full couch setup and a kitchen you can move around in. There’s a small, separated nook for the sleeping area, which looks a bit cramped with a queen-sized bed and a dresser in it.
A Small but Furnished Studio near Meridian Hill Park
This tiny studio (the listing claims 400 square feet) looks more like a hotel room, but it’s certainly cheap compared to similarly furnished competitors, which can go for nearly twice as much per month. There’s a washer and dryer in the unit and a very small kitchen. The location, though not quite in the Dupont Circle neighborhood advertised on the listing, is not far from the intersection of 16th and U Street NW.
A Two-Bedroom Next to Stadium Armory Metro
On the other side of the city, $1,600 a month can, on occasion, get you into a two-bedroom apartment like this one — meaning if you share, each person is paying about $800 a month, a very good price no matter where you are in the District. The unit is located a block from Stadium Armory Metro. And it’s a step up from the studio, offering about 900 square feet to move around in. The place is not polished or updated, but it has hardwood floors and some large windows.
