What $2,000 Rents You in the DC Area

by Shilpi Paul

This week in What X Rents You, UrbanTurf looks in the $2,000 a month range and found a variety of choices for prospective renters in the DC area with this monthly budget.

A Carriage House on Capitol Hill

While DC doesn’t have many true lofts, some of the city’s more interesting residential spaces come in the form of renovated carriage houses. However, it requires some ingenuity to turn these alley structures into comfortable homes. Whoever renovated this one put in lots of built-ins, left an exposed brick wall, and carved out a teeny kitchen and a bedroom nook. While there aren’t that many windows, a huge skylight brightens up the space. The one-bedroom carriage house is available on September 1st.

Spacious Condo in 16th Street Heights

About five miles north of downtown DC is this three-bedroom apartment renting for just under $2,000 a month. The 16th Street Heights unit was renovated in 2007 and has standard modern fixtures, like granite counters and shiny hardwood floors. The owners installed insulated windows and doors on the terrace-level apartment, so drafts and noise shouldn’t be too much of a problem. While it doesn’t come with outdoor space, Rock Creek Park is about two blocks away.

Just Off Adams Morgan’s Main Drag

For those who want to be close to the action in Adams Morgan, this one-bedroom is located a few steps from the intersection of Columbia Road and 18th Street NW. It is the top-floor unit of a newly renovated row house, and the eventual renter will be the apartment’s first tenant. The dwellers of this mini-apartment complex will share a few amenities, like a washer/dryer and a building-wide HVAC system that will be set at 76 degrees in the summer and 68 in the winter. This apartment is available immediately, but the landlords warn that construction on the building exterior and in other units is still ongoing. Parking is available at an extra cost.

    "building-wide HVAC system that will be set at 76 degrees in the summer and 68 in the winter". Really...I would never pay $2000 just to need a space heater or fan running at all times. I know both those temperatures are too warm/cold for me.

    The living room of the Capitol Hill house looks awesome, particularly the stove/fireplace.

    @StringsAttached agreed. Im hoping they meant 68 in the summer and 76 in the winter... b/c that would be insane.

    That Adams Morgan unit sounds awful. Reading the listing, it says utilities are fixed at an extra $175 a month, which just seems ridiculous for a unit that size. The air stays at 76 (on a top floor) which the landlord acknowledges will probably leave the unit hot by stating that there's a window unit AC for really hot days. You have to walk around the block to access the building's garbage disposal and parking area. No thanks.

    "Im hoping they meant 68 in the summer and 76 in the winter" Holy crap, I hope that's a joke. The amount of energy it'd cost to reach those temps would be obscene.
