What is your pet policy?

Cats are welcome for $20 extra per cat per month.  Sorry, no dogs.  Most other pets are allowed (ask) without charge and there is never a deposit.

How to get to Metro?

It is about a 12 minute walk down Blair Road to the Takoma Metro Station. You exit the property to your left and walk 4 blocks (2 long blocks to Piney Branch Road and then two short blocks). The Metro station will be on your left. Walk under the Metro bridge and enter the station again to your left.

Do you accept online rent payments?

Are utilities included?

All utilities are included except electric.  The property pays for gas (heating, cooking, and hot water), water and sewer, while residents are required to open an electric account with PEPCO which will cover your lights, plug in appliances and air-conditioning in the summer. Trash collection is also included in your rent.

How can I receive packages?
