Three Levels in Logan Circle With a Rooftop Deck and a Blue Kitchen

The floorplan of this home at 11th and R Street NW is spread out over three levels. The first floor features a kitchen with updated appliances and sleek electric blue cabinets, and an open dining area. Access to the home’s backyard is also on this level. The second floor features a living room and a full bathroom. Finally, on the third level are the bedrooms. The master bedroom has a large bay window but it’s the second bedroom that is more attractive. It has access to a balcony, and, from here, a winding staircase leads to a rooftop deck.

Four Bedrooms in Trinidad

This rowhouse north of H Street NE is a good option for renters who want to be close to the action but don’t want to sacrifice space and modern finishings. The four-bedroom home has hardwood floors throughout, a mostly open floor plan and a galley-style kitchen that features stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Upstairs, the bathrooms follow this theme with newer finishings and modern decoration. One of the bedrooms has a separate seating area that, with its large bright windows, could make for a nice small office space.

Full Listing: 1224 Orren Street NE (map)
Rent: $3,600
Bedrooms: Four
Bathrooms: 2.5

Recently Renovated Duplex in Shaw

This 1,290 square-foot two-bedroom rental is just a year old. The wide-plank wood floors hint at the unit’s recent renovation, as does the new kitchen that looks out into the living area. Both bedrooms are spacious, great for two roommates looking to share the home. The main bathroom has above-the-counter square basins for the sink to pour into and a glass-walled shower.

Full Listing: Q and 5th Street NW (map)
Rent: $3,500
Bedrooms: Two
Bathrooms: 2.5

    The third listing is mostly a basement apartment. If you look at the Craigslist post, you can see that the duplex only has a small part of the first floor with both bedrooms and the majority of the living space in the basement. $3500 is pretty steep for a basement apartment. There are units on the rental market in the same neighborhood with similar specs for much less.
