In this edition of What X Rents, UrbanTurf looks at units in the $2,300-a-month range to see what a DC renter can afford with this budget.
A One-Bedroom House in Foggy Bottom
Five years ago, UrbanTurf wrote about DC real estate’s unicorn: the one-bedroom house. Now, one in Foggy Bottom is up for rent. The Snows Court house is quite narrow, but there are hardwood floors, and even a gas fireplace that can be controlled by remote. Upstairs is the bedroom and office area, and out back is a fairly deep patio. The home is available starting January 5.
1,200 Square Feet in a Former Schoolhouse
This listing spreads out over 1,200 square feet on the top-floor of the Lovejoy Lofts, a former schoolhouse on Capitol Hill. The home features exposed brick and an open layout, and has a washer/dryer, central A/C and a reserved parking spot. The listing description also boasts 20-foot ceilings, but it is hard to confirm that claim based on the photos.
Three Bedrooms Off Bladensburg Road
The largest of the three rentals featured today, this renovated rowhouse sits just east of Trinidad and the H Street Corridor. The three-bedroom home comes with a laundry list of features and amenities: hardwood floors, a new washer and dryer, a refinished antique clawfoot tub in the bathroom, a Nest thermostat, and a backyard with fruit trees, grape vines, and vegetable gardens. The listing also boasts that solar panels will soon be installed. The home is available as of December 15.
