New, 2 comments

Finally, a good deal

In their latest monthly report, Apartment List mapped Washington, D.C.’s most expensive neighborhoods, all of which were located in the Northwest quadrant of the city. These areas included Logan Circle-Shaw, Downtown-Penn Quarter-Chinatown, Woodley Park, Cleveland Park, and Foggy Bottom.

In order to prove that it is possible to get a good deal in these areas of the city, Curbed has collected five relatively cheap rentals with amenities to spare. According to Apartment List, the median monthly rent one can find in these areas for a two-bedroom unit range from $3,200 up to at least $3,500.

Below, the chosen rentals range from $2,300/month to $2,650/month. Each have at least two bedrooms.

Logan Circle-Shaw

↑ This $2,500/month apartment is up for grabs with a six-month lease. With two bedrooms and one bathroom across 600 square feet of space, this listing comes with hardwood flooring and in-unit laundry. Pet owners, rejoice! Cats and small dogs are allowed on a case-by-case basis with a one-time pet fee and a 25-pound limit.

Downtown-Penn Quarter-Chinatown

↑ This two-bedroom, two-bathroom Downtown apartment comes with a variety of amenities. They include a fitness center, club room, laundry facilities, and rooftop pool. With three Metro stations within walking distance, the price totals $2,600/month.

Woodley Park

↑ With over 1,035 square feet of space, this rental is one of the bigger ones on this list. It offers two bedrooms and unfortunately only one bathroom. Need-to-know features inside include that it has wall-to-wall carpeting, a laundry room on every floor, and a close location to the National Zoo and Metro. Along with the $2,300/month rent, tenants are also responsible for all utilities. No pets are allowed.

Cleveland Park

↑ This two-bedroom, one-bathroom rental is on the market with over 800 square feet of space. For $2,467/month, renters will enjoy a balcony, walk-in closet, and a dishwasher in the kitchen. There is also a washer and dryer available.

[UPDATE: The previous listing used for Cleveland Park’s blurb was located in Cathedral Heights. The listing has since been replaced with the current one used above.]

Foggy Bottom

↑ This two-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bathroom townhome is on the market for $2,650/month. The photos don’t reveal too much (as there are only three photos available of the listing), but the listing assures that the property is in “solid condition” with original details and a wood-burning fireplace. The tenant is responsible for all utilities. No pets are allowed inside. The location is only a block away from the nearest Metro and less than half a mile away from a Trader Joe’s.
