Great location. Walking distance to Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, movie theatres, shopping, bars, restaurants, pizza, cleaners etc. Buildings built in 1941-42, and tons of insects on the bottom floors. Massive drain fly infestation, no way I would have moved in if I had known. Rent raised by $200, after one year with nothing but trouble and problems. Great neighbourhood, great place for dogs, great front office workers (really great, the best/friendliest bunch I've seen). But old buildings, horrible insect infestation, black mold, some poor construction choices, lack of follow-through on promises to renovate balcony, poor insulation, badly fitting doors, small and nasty-smelling trash collection area you have to walk past every day, with too many people using too few containers. I would not recommend this place, unless you really have to have the location, even at comparably low prices. Save yourself the headaches. THE worst parking situation I've seen in a while. Pay $50 extra to park, but not in the reserved spots, which are too many and stay empty - which means you'll be circling the lot to find a too-small parking space (even for a small economy car), and give you that additional incentive to pay another $50/month for a reserved spot, see how that works?! Over a year went by after I talked to both maintenance and the front office - and no-one bothered to fix a reserved marker that covered two spots but was obviously only meant for one - so which one?? Your motorcycle may get stolen, so don't park it here.
This lovely older garden apartment complex is a great place to live for people of all ages. Beautiful trees and landscaped grounds, close to DC, walk to stores and restaurants, clean apartments with modern equipment, cheerful, efficient and helpful office and maintenance staff, and VERY pet friendly - a super place for both people and pets!
We have a new team at the leasing office, Sheffield Court Apartment. And new team is the most lazy and rude team I worked with. They ignore service requests. And too lazy to check if we have delivered boxes. Location is great
Probably the most incompetent management I have ever had to deal with. Would rather go on a date with a Comcast employee, then having to talk to these unicellular organisms.
Oh, how I hate this place. My apartment was broken into Memorial Day weekend 2012. None of our neighbors called the police. When we returned from vacation, the door was completely banged in. When I spoke to management, Adam (?), he told me they wouldn't change the locks because it would be too inconvenient to all those in the building. Initially, the manager only painted over the area where the intruder banged through the door. However, after constant requests, I explained that I still, in fact, saw that the door was inverted and wanted it replaced. When we explained our concern for safety, we were told that "these things happen" and "it was a drunken intruder who got lost". If it wasn't for the police, I feel like Sheffield would have brushed it under the carpet. Very disappointed, will not rent from an Equity apartment again due to local management. The worst part is that we enjoyed the on-site staff. It was truly the area staff that were not on-site who were horrible to deal with.
