Arlington: $1,900

1BR: 1028 S. Walter Reed Drive, Apt. 402

A gym with personal flat-screen televisions and free yoga, a “Zen” pool deck (with designer chaise lounges!), an oh-so-modern lobby — the Halstead is sleek living in Arlington at its best. The 670-square-foot one-bedroom includes a spacious living room, plush carpets and stainless steel kitchen appliances. The bedroom’s window looks out onto a roomy balcony. Downstairs, a recreation center offers free pool and foosball, along with a wet bar. Free shuttle bus to the Pentagon and Pentagon City Metro stops. (Listed by Bozzuto)


Trinidad: $1,999

1BR: 1616 Trinidad Ave. N.E.

From the outside, it’s an ordinary brown brick row house. But inside, this three-bedroom home offers domestic bliss. There is a spacious living room, two small sunrooms, big closets in the bedrooms and a backyard for get-togethers. The kitchen boasts shiny black counter-tops and new appliances, along with a washer/dryer (shared with basement tenant). It’s an easy walk to H Street; the Metro is a bus-ride away. The neighborhood is a bit dicey — 34 violent crimes were reported last year — but that rate is dropping steadily. (Listed by owner)
