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.

- Rent: $1,900 a month
- Bedrooms: One
- Bathrooms: One
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.
- Full Listing: 1404 Longfellow Street NW (map)
- Rent: $1,990 a month
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: Two
- Square Footage: 1,000
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.
