Sunny 2bed/1bath condo with deck in Arlington, Virginia (pet friendly!)

Lovely 2 bed, 1 bath, ground level condo in a leafy, quiet, established condominium community. The condo is centrally located in the vibrant Columbia Pike neighborhood of South Arlington. Close to Georgetown's main campus (about a 15-minute drive), GMU, GWU, and other area universities, as well as federal agencies and the Smithsonian.

Our condo is spacious (870sq ft) and bright, perfect for a single individual, a couple or a small family. It’s got one large bedroom and one smaller bedroom, a spacious living and dining area and a small but thoughtfully designed kitchen with newer appliances and custom cabinetry. Brand new HVAC system will keep you comfortable all year. The unit is one of the best in the community in terms of privacy and natural light. The living room overlooks a large courtyard. The bedrooms look out on a wooded area behind our local community center. Our building only has five units, and the immediate neighbors, all professionals, are friendly and community-minded.

Outdoor space: The unit has a private deck which great for kids, pets and container gardening in summer. The unit also faces a large community courtyard and is a safe distance from the street, making it extra peaceful and safe.

Community amenities: Outdoor pool and community gym. Storage unit (5’x7’ storage cage) in the basement. Shared laundry facilities. Secure bike storage. Street parking and off-street lot for residents, no assigned spots but the lot is never full. All shared spaces of the community are professionally managed.

Pet policy: Our community is very pet friendly, and we are open to up to two cats or one well-behaved dog.

Availability and rent: The unit is available in late December 2018 or early January 2019 (negotiable). Rent is $2,000 per month, all utilities included.

Furnishings: We are offering the condo semi-furnished or unfurnished as a default, as we are relocating to Portland, Oregon, and will take some of our furniture with us. Please contact us if you are interested and we can discuss how to accommodate your needs.

The neighborhood: The Columbia Pike neighborhood is vibrant with restaurants, beer garden, Starbucks, Giant, beloved local businesses, and the famous Arlington Drafthouse & Cinema just up the street! The condo is a quick 15-minute drive to the Georgetown campus. Four blocks to a busy bus stop, where the 45 ART bus takes you straight to Rosslyn for an easy connection to campus. Plenty of buses to the orange/silver lines (at Ballston and Clarendon) and yellow/blue lines (at Pentagon and Pentagon City). The 16X and 16Y express buses reach downtown DC in no time on weekdays.

About us: We are a professional couple (a linguist who recently changed careers from academia to the non-profit sector and a federal employee). After 12 wonderful years in the DC area, we are relocating to Oregon and are looking for reliable tenants for our beautiful condo. Our preference is for longer-term leases (e.g. 12 months or a full academic year) but we are open to negotiation for the right opportunity.

About Me
I am a linguist with expertise in language variation and discourse analysis. Until recently I taught and managed an MA program in sociolinguistics at Georgetown University. I've since made the move into the role of Research Director in a non-profit organization. My spouse and I are relocating to Portland, Oregon, and are looking for tenants for our beautiful two-bedroom condo in Arlington, Virginia. We would love to rent to/host scholars, academics and professionals who appreciate a quiet community with proximity to everything the Washington, DC region has to offer. Our condo community is pet friendly and is perfect for single individuals, couples and small families. Our preference is for longer lease terms (e.g. a full calendar year or a full AY), but we are flexible and open to discussion for the right tenants.
