A couple years ago, Alex Ovechkin departed the happening millennial scene that is the outskirts of Ballston for a more stately, adult manse in McLean. (If that sentence makes no sense to you, whatever. It would if you were from D.C., and I care not to explain myself.)
He kept his house in Arlington, however, which is about a mile north of the bumping Bro scene that is the WIBOEC (Wilson Boulevard Entertainment Corridor, trademark David Covucci, 2012) and is now putting it up for rent.
Which means that you could live in the house and have Alex Ovechkin as your landlord. While I doubt he will come over to change your light bulbs, he might!
Is it a good investment? The house is a four bedroom place that’s currently on the market for $6,500 a month. That’s $1,625 a person, not including bills. Pretty expensive for a Bro den which isn’t directly on public transportation. And that area is teeming with cops, so you’d be spending a lot on cab fare.
Still, it sounds nice. From Arlington Now:
The 5,000-square-foot house is described in its listing as having “gleaming hardwood floors” on the main level, a master bedroom with a sitting room and a whirlpool tub and separate shower in the master bath, a rec room with a wet bar and a rear deck. The security deposit is posted as $7,950, and tenants are required to be non-smokers, but pets are allowed.
I say do it, Bros. What’s a little steeper rent in exchange for Ovi as a landlord?
If you do, please email me (email@example.com) and I will come down and buy you your first keg.
