In this edition of What X Rents, UrbanTurf looks at homes in the $1,500-a-month price range to see what options are available to renters with this monthly budget. In short, you can get a one-bedroom apartment, but it will likely be in the basement.
A One-Bedroom in an English Basement Off Observatory Circle
This 675 square foot, furnished one-bedroom in Glover Park is a block from Whole Foods and not far from Georgetown. It’s in an English basement, though windows in every room help offset the limited light. The unit has a washer and dryer, and wireless internet is included in the rent, but the landlord will not tolerate smoking.
- Full Listing: Wisconsin Avenue at Calvert Street NW (map)
- Rent: $1,400 a month
- Bedrooms: One
- Bathrooms: One
An English Basement in Shaw
This one-bedroom in a Shaw rowhouse is a little more updated than the listing above, though at just 420 square feet it’s also a lot smaller. The unit has a washer and dryer in the closet and the kitchen opens onto the living space. The apartment’s best attribute is likely its location — walking distance to the neighborhood’s restaurants and about four blocks from Logan Circle.
A Renovated Unit in Trinidad
You’ll get the biggest bang for your buck in this renovated unit in Trinidad, which measures out at 560 square feet and looks like it’s above-ground. The unit has a fully updated kitchen with new appliances. The building is about a block from Gallaudet University and a short walk to Union Market.
