This week in What X Rents You, UrbanTurf looks in the $1,500-a-month range in Columbia Heights and Petworth to see what choices are out there for prospective renters with this monthly budget.
A Bed and Bath with a Roommate North of U Street
This is a shared living situation north of U Street where the eventual renter would get a bedroom and a bathroom in a two-bedroom apartment. The unit has a washer and dryer and is walking distance to both the Columbia Heights and U Street metros. The listing notes that the common spaces in the apartment are furnished, but the bedroom is not.

A Furnished English Basement in Columbia Heights
A step up in price gets you a furnished place in the same neighborhood as the shared apartment above, but you’ll have to go partly below-ground. This English basement comes with utilities, an alarm system, TV and cable included. It is also set up with flat screen TV, a washer/dryer and central A/C. It’s about halfway between the Columbia Heights and U Street metros.

The unit comes with a washer/dryer, and all the finishes are brand new. It’s about a 10-minute walk to the Petworth Metro.
