ISO Person to house share with 1 other person - private space 2BR / 1 BA - $2000 plus utilities

Helen Qubain

Hello all,

I couple of weeks ago I posted an apartment rental for the mother-in-law addition to my house.  We have had a slew of interest and  found someone that we really like but who does not need all the space that we have.  So we are trying to help find her a housemate.  She is a lovely professional woman in her mid-30's.  Please see apartment information below and reach out to me if you are interested or have questions.  

All the best,

Additional Area Info:

We love the location!  It’s a few blocks from the Wilson Pool -- by consensus the best aquatic center in the city. Fort Reno Park is a few minutes walk in one direction, and streamside Soapstone Trial into Rock Creek Park is a year-round treat a few minutes walk in the other direction. 10-minute walk to Tenleytown and Van Ness metro stations. You can walk downhill to / from either station. Close to Whole Foods, Bread Furst, Giant, CVS, Target, and of course restaurants.

If this opportunity intrigues you...and maybe even if you find it confusing...and you find the photos gorgeous... please contact us to find out more.
