As part of an occasional series where we cast an eye over rental properties and real estate walkable to downtown Princeton, we invite you to comment on a local listing. You can find previous entries here and here.
Today we are looking at an apartment for rent with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom. The address is listed as ‘Nassau Street’- those in the know will recognize the property as 301 Nassau Street, which is at the corner of Princeton Avenue, just east of the University, and near the 255 Nassau site. The advertised rate is $2,000 per month and the full listing with more photos is available here.
The house is described as a “large historic Nassau Street mansion”. It certainly is big, but you only get a bit of it for your $2,000/month, and a bit of Googling reveals that there are 8 individual residential units on the site.
It’s not clear exactly how you would access the unit- presumably there is common access through this large hallway. By the looks of the photos, this unit is right up top in a converted loft. It contains a “large living room, separate dining room, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms”:
There is a washer/drier in the unit, which is listed as 900 sq feet. However, it is not available until January 2014 (which, scarily enough is only 9 weeks away!). Here is the kitchen:
Off-street parking and utilities are included, so, as rentals, go, for $2,000 a month, Is That A Good Deal?
Let us know if you think $2,000 per month represents fair market value for this rental property! We welcome your comments in the space below!
