This 1,400-square-foot, double-decker condo in Silver Spring includes two bedrooms and a bathroom, skylights, washer, dryer, dishwasher, and wood-burning fireplace. The downstairs living space has dark hardwood floors; upstairs, the loft-style bedroom has wall-to-wall carpeting. Our favorite feature is the spiral staircase—perhaps not the most functional on move-in day (getting a mattress up there might be tough), but a neat design feature that gives the space a classy touch. The Silver Spring Metro station (Red Line) is less than a mile away.
Address: 2224 Washington Ave., Silver Spring
Price: $1,800 a month. A bonus: The property manager is offering half off the first month's rent for tenants who sign by June 9.
