2 bed room 1 bath - Available June 1 maybe slightly sooner. This is a great basic apartment in a fabulous location.
Super convenient location: right off the beltway, on Rockville Pike. Close to NIH and Walter Reed, they are just a short drive away. Or if you commute by metro, the building is 0.3 of mile to Grosvenor metro - 5-7 minute walk from front door to metro platform. NIH is one metro stop away. Many trains start at Grosvenor, so you can get a seat, and mostly all the redline trains go as far as Grosvenor in the evenings, so you don't have to wait for a Shady Grove train. Bus stops in front of the compound as well. Next to the beltway and close to I-270 if you need to commute by car.
This is Grosvenor, in the garden apartments, not Parkside so there are several entrances to the place rather than everyone trying to commute out one entrance at 7:30 am. Plus you don't have to walk through woods late at night from the metro.
The Unit: Top floor end unit in a quiet building. Large open living area with cathedral ceilings. Only 2 units per floor so the unit has a front and back view. The bedrooms get morning sun, the living - dining area gets evening sun, which makes the apartment really nice to live in as it feels more like a home than a typical hallway type apartment. The unit gets a great cross breeze as well when the weather permits. You get privacy as the balcony is in the trees and overlooks a creek and pool in the distance.
The compound: There are several pools 2 of which you can use, plus there are tennis courts, picnic and play areas, as well as ponds and park area to walk around. Grosvenor has a great small market for food and the area is close to shopping areas. There is really a decent amount of parking - you can register 2 cars and there is room for guests. Laundry in basement and with only 8 units in the building its not crowded. Unit has a storage bin in basement for thinks like suitcases or off season storage.
$175 move in fee payable to the management. 1-month security deposit and references background check required. Utilities included in the rent.
Currently 2 walls are painted blue, these will be returned to cream when the tenant leaves. Currently we can show this unit almost anytime as tenant is around so can let you in.
This apartment next to Grosvenor metro on Rockville Pike, just 2 miles north of NIH or Bethesda Navy /Walter Reed main hospital.
Most people will drive - It's 5 minutes without traffic, will be longer during rush hour. The FDA and NIH Parklawn building is not a far drive, it's 3.5 miles. To get to the FDA Silver Spring location you just hop on the beltway.
The unit is 0.3 of a mile to the platform at Grosvenor metro, 5-7 minute walk at most, so it's easy to get to DC. In the morning many trains start at Grosvenor so it is easy to get a seat, plus coming home you don't have to wait for a Shady Grove train. The NIH is one metro stop away.
Depending on where you need to get to within the NIH Compound, a bus might take less time than the metro, it just depends on the exact building and the timing. The Buses stop in front of the compound.
No matter what the commute will be about as easy as it gets unless you live next door to your office.
