1BR: 400 8th St. NW, Apt. 211

Perched above Teaism cafe, this 678-square-foot one-bedroom is bright with a big bay window in the living room (high-quality glass blocks out most noise). The bedroom is carpeted and has a walk-in closet. Light wood cabinets and tile floors give the kitchen a clean, if slightly dated, feel. There’s a washer-dryer. Amenities include a DVD library, spacious gym (no waiting around for treadmills) and courtyard with grill. (Listed by Bozzuto)


Brightwood: $2,250

3BR: 6100 7th St. NW

Situated in a quiet neighborhood, this two-story is cozy if a little bland. The kitchen (with sparkly new appliances) is large enough for communal cooking, and there’s a nice front porch for evening sit-arounds. Two of the bedrooms are large, while one is a bit cramped. The fenced-in backyard makes the place ideal for dog owners. Takoma Metro is about a mile away, so a car would be handy for grocery shopping and restaurant hopping. (Listed by owner)
