The room: One bedroom available in a 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath rowhouse in Park View! The room can come furnished with a full size bed if you want. (Roommate 1 used to live in this room and comfortably fit a nice size dresser, nightstand, and full size bed. Plus the closet is pretty big for the size of the room.)
The house: We can’t say enough good things about this house, (the one downside is that we are short, the cabinets and the ceilings are tall which makes changing lightbulbs a challenge). The house has a front porch and backyard that we frequently use for hangouts. We have a large kitchen and 3 of us have been able to cook at the same time before. The dining room is a prime spot for working from home. The sun-filled living room is a great home for our plants and another good WFH spot. The laundromat that our landlord owns (sigh) is behind the house, so we sadly don’t have in-unit washer/dryer, but it hasn’t been a big issue for us. The common spaces are fully furnished.
Location: We are a less than 10 minute walk from the Georgia Ave-Petworth metro stop and a 15-20 minute walk from all of the stores in Columbia Heights. There are 4 grocery stores that are walking distance from the house.
The roommates: We met via Craigslist and have lived together for 2.5 years.
Roommate 1 recently finished grad school and works in housing for the federal government. She enjoys going to farmers’ markets, watching the Bachelor, and cooking vegetarian meals. She is looking into getting a hypoallergenic dog.
Roommate 2 does grassroots advocacy with a non-profit and is from the Chicagoland area. She enjoys hosting friends, playing volleyball, exploring the city, and has a newfound love for salsa dancing.
Together we enjoy: oooing at pups, watching TV, fighting for social equity, hanging out on our front porch, having bonfires in the backyard, and getting bagels from our favorite neighborhood restaurant, Heat da Spot. We both spend time with our individual friend groups, but as a multi-faith house, we enjoy bringing our traditions and friends together for celebrations. Christmukkah 2021 is coming!
We are really excited to welcome a new housemate and are accepting of all backgrounds and identities. The room is currently available, with an option of pro-rated rent for August, and must be filled by September 1.
