What Just Under $1,500 a Month Rents You in DC: Figure 1

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.

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.

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.
