Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various Washington, D.C. neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $2,000.
↑ This Dupont Circle studio comes under our budget at $1,994/month with a total of 450-square-feet. It's cat-friendly and comes with amenities like a shared pool and a fitness center. Highlights include a walk-in shower as well as a walk-in closet.
↑ In Union Station, you can find this airy and spacious one-bedroom condo with floor-to-ceiling windows and a private balcony at an asking price of $1,980/month. The cabinet space in the kitchen is fantastic with gorgeous dark wood, and the walk-in closet in the bedroom is a nice touch as well. If you like an active social life, the location is near retail, dining, and nightlife. You can also just stay home and take a dip in the pool or exercise at the fitness center.
↑ For $1,995/month, this one-bedroom Georgetown condo comes with walk-in closets and so much shelving it's insane in the best kind of way. In terms of the kitchen and bathroom, both are pretty drab with plain white countertops and cabinets. Now, this is definitely the condo for if you want something that will keep you active rather than stuck on the couch with amenities that include an exercise room, a squash court, a sauna, and a bike rack along with a jogging and cycling path only a half a block away. Also, with no parking spaces and no garage in the building, you're going to need to be active when you have to walk from the parking lots located within a block from the building. Monthly rent for parking included.
↑ This one-bedroom condo is a bit outdated, but acceptable with an asking price of $1,950/month in Adams Morgan. Pets aren't allowed, but it comes with a good amount of closet space, a washer and dryer on every floor, and a gym in the basement. For parking, there is a reserved off-street parking spot in the lot behind the building.
