Five Cringe-Worthy Micro Listings Under 575-Square-Feet

New, 1 comment

These studios are for those who like to live with less, hate to party, and don't feel suffocated by an almost $2,000 asking price with a barely 575-square-foot size. In celebration of Micro Week, Curbed searched far and wide in the Craigslist-verse to find the most cringe-worthy listings that don't feel like they need to compensate for anything.

Sherry Hall Apartments
2702 Wisconsin Avenue NW
$1,150/month This unit is for the serious Georgetown lovers who are willing to sacrifice space for location, location, location. With only four photos, it's a little difficult to get a big picture of this 348-square-foot apartment, but with zero bedrooms and one bathroom, this may not be the best place to host a party. Some of the amenities in the building include a shared roof terrace and laundry on site. The listing also mentions that the 30 bus line comes directly to the front of the building.

The Albemarle
1830 R Street NW
$1,525/month With zero bedrooms and one bathroom, this Dupont Circle apartment is only 320-square-feet. This may not be one of the most cringe-worthy apartments on our list, but it is the smallest of the small. Some of this listing's highlights include that it's pet-friendly and includes walk-in closets. The building includes a laundry site as well as street parking.

The President Condominiums
2141 I Street NW
$1,550/month This Foggy Bottom is perfect for renters with a big wardrobe. The walk-in closet is incredibly spacious. It's also the only way to get to the bathroom. If you don't want your guests to have to walk through your closet to use the toilet, this may not be for you. This listing comes with zero bedrooms, one bathroom, and 400-square-feet of space. The building has off-street parking and is only one block from the Foggy Bottom Metro line.

The Melwood
1803 Biltmore Street NW
$1,444/month In Adams Morgan, you can find this zero-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment. If you have a cat in tow, this pet-friendly listing may be for you, but if you hate having to go to the basement to do your laundry, maybe you should turn away. This apartment's size is only 392-square-feet.

2501 Porter Apartments
2501 Porter Street NW
$1,995/month For a 574-square-foot apartment, the most cringe-worthy aspect of this listing is its almost $2,000/month asking price. If you're really determined to live in Cleveland Park, though, you may be pleased by this apartment's balcony with a courtyard view. The listing offers one bedroom and one bathroom.
