In What X Rents You this week, we see how far a $3,700 a month budget goes in the District.
A Solar-Powered Petworth Rowhouse
The least-expensive and most spacious rental highlighted today is a rowhouse in Petworth, which has 1,800 square feet of living space. The main floor enjoys an open layout, while an exposed brick wall runs alongside the stairway. The finished basement serves as an oversized bedroom or bonus space, while there is also a full backyard with shed. The house’s solar panels provide electricity, which is included in the rental rate.
An End-Unit in Tenleytown
This sunny, semidetached rowhouse in Tenleytown takes advantage of its double exposure, with open sightlines and French glass doors on the main level and plenty of windows on all levels. A rear sunroom leads out to a bi-level wooden deck in the backyard, where there is also a detached garage. Two of the bedrooms upstairs bookend a jack-and-jill bathroom. A white-washed brick fireplace serves as a focal point in the living room.
A Hidden Duplex With Easy Access to H Street
The smallest rental option for today is a duplex on a hidden block a short walk from the H Street Corridor. To the right of the entrance is the open living area, where floor-to-ceiling built-in archtop bookcases frame an ornamental fireplace. The kitchen has a petite breakfast bar and wine fridge, and the fenced-in backyard hosts a small brick-paved patio. While the three bedrooms are upstairs, the large finished basement could also serve as a bedroom and has a full bath.
