Love the Sheffield Court apartments so far. Great location without tons of traffic. Lots of space and only one of a few apartments that are pet friendly for bigger breeds. The leasing agents here are amazing. Jason Hill is the MAN! I was dealing with some time constraints. He helped me find an apartment in less than a week. When I had an issue with my first apartment, he was extremely helpful in finding me another one of comparable size and price in no time. Definitely made my transition here seamless. Absolutely recommend.
Great community. I have a large one bedroom and the staff is excellent! Very responsive and communicative. There's a ton of green space for my dog including a dog park and the neighbors are really friendly.
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 $150, 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.
Don't know about what it's like to live there, but you would have to get through their moronic leasing office first anyway. Scheduled an appointment on line to look at two bedroom apartments. When we get there, their system has us scheduled for two hours earlier than the email their system sent me said. Then they tell us they don't have any two bedrooms we can look at. Why didn't they tell us that before we wasted an afternoon driving down there? All they can do is show us pictures and floor plans on the computer. I can do that from home. There's only one two bedroom available in our time frame and they can't tell us exactly what floor plan it is until we move in. I also ask about the 2br with dens I saw online and they tell me there are none. Won't be moving 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!
