$640 - Large Br in Spacious & Sunny 2BR Apartment
My housemate is moving to NYC at the end of October and leaving me with a giant two-bedroom apartment in Mt Pleasant, right on the S2, S4 16th Street bus lines, one block from Mt Pleasant Ave shops like Tonic & the 42 bus or the new Tivoli Giant, and three blocks from Wonderland or the Columbia Heights Metro Station.
On a top floor of the Majestic Apartments we're high enough not to get too much 16th Street noise while we enjoy amazing views of Washington from Columbia Heights to the National Shrine. This time of year, we also get soft morning light poring in through the big curved windows of our dining area, lighting up the ballet-studio sized living room and clean kitchen.
Down the hall, past my room and our shared bathroom could be your new bedroom. At 12x20ft, it's larger than many studios in this city and you have your own two closets, two windows, and cable connection. We have WiFi throughout and it, plus cable and electricity, is around $120 that we split.
In his departure, my housemate's taking a good amount of furniture with him, and what is mine in the common areas, I'm not all that attached to. This means that if you have much stuff, well decent non-Dumpster-dived stuff, that's a plus for we sure have the room. Another plus would be the ability and desire to use standard household cleaning apparatus, including a mop for our hard wood floors and sponges to keep kitchen and bathroom clean.
I'm a clean guy whose fought grime single-handedly for the last year as my housemate watched TV. While I don't care what you watch, you do need to share, both in cleaning and remote control mastery. And the Daily Show is preferred over Fox News, but if you don't care to watch either, even better. I'm usually geeking out on my computers anyway. That or out socializing. Right, which means you need to help keep the beer fridge stocked too. Beer, wine, booze, this ain't a dry apartment. It is a smoke-free DC one though.
It is in a great building - an Art Deco masterpiece that has a rooftop deck, new elevators, and a quirky, if not modern, charm. And I'm a fun quirky guy myself. A geek by trade, after work, I'm a social butterfly. Not one to bring much of a party home, I do seek them out, and I'm generally thought of as a nice guy, always ready to laugh and have a good time.
Please be the same: fun, energetic, and clean. M/F doesn't matter as much as a positive personality, willingness to decorate, sharing the housework, good social skills, and the lack of cats or dogs - they're not allowed. Oh, and note the price again - $640 per month. Sweet, eh?
Now let me know something about you - what's your role here in DC, how are you to live with, and why would I wanna share this deal with you?
