In Capitol Hill, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment in a Fred Anhalt-designed designed Tudor revival complex is going for $3,050. That includes an adorable fireplace, vintage windows, hardwood floors, in-unit laundry, and shared courtyard access, plus around 1,000 square feet of space. It’s pet-friendly and located right along transit, but parking is available in an attached garage.

Rent is $3,000 a month on the dot.
