My fabulous basement roommate is engaged and moving out. Her room's available June 1 in a lovely 3 bedroom + a basement bedroom / 2bathroom row home in North Columbia Heights. Located right off of 14th (where all the action happens), we're only 1/2 a mile to both the Columbia Heights and Petworth Metros and fantastic Rock Creek Park. The house is 100 yrs old, but it was redone about 10 years ago and has a spacious kitchen, full dining room, and a living room with three couches. There's also a back deck and "back yard" with raised gardens if you have we green thumb (we don't).
The room is in the basement and has its own bathroom, kitchenette (sink, shelves, and fridge) a large closet, and enough space for a couch, TV or other things. You'll share laundry + stairwell space with your roommates but other than that will have the place to yourself while also being welcome to use the entire first floor.
Your roommates would be three fairly laid-back, fun folks. One fellow DC TRI Club woman and two guys, all of whom are in their mid twenties and have lived in DC at 2-4 years and work for different do-gooding organizations in the area. We have our own lives but enjoy catching up about the day in the kitchen, celebrating birthdays, and having the occasional house party.
About the Room:
Rent is $950 plus utilities, which tend to be less than $50/month. Security deposit $800, to be refunded upon move from the house. Garage parking available for $125/month. Bike parking in the sunroom free. No smokers or pets please. We are looking for someone to commit to staying in the room for a full year.
Pictures are available, questions are welcome, and interested ladies (and gents, though we would prefer to maintain the gender balance) should respond to this post and we can set up a time for you to see the place.
