A 1-bed apartment is available now in a 5-unit building in a quiet residential cul-de-sac in Takoma Park. It's a large 1-bedroom with a big kitchen, living room, and dining room, and 1-year old wall-to-wall carpet. The rent is $1125 per month, with utilities included, free laundry facilities in the basement, and use of a garage. The apartment is 2 mins walk from the Ride-On bus route to the Takoma Metro station, Takoma Park, and Silver Spring. It's also only 12 mins walk from the UMD shuttle stop.
The address is 306 Patterson Court (Long Branch Parkway at Carroll Avenue). I live in another apartment in the building and it's a very pleasant place to live. The only stipulation is no pets.
