12 N Congress St Apt 3
This is a beautiful 3-bedroom apartment in one of the best locations in town. Seriously. If you lease this barely-off-campus student rental, you’ll be living within view of Court Street bars, restaurants and other amenities. You could not be closer to the delicious weekly specials at Salaam. That killer location, outdoor space (a deck with a view of uptown), high ceilings, hardwood floors, and historic charm make this 3-bedroom housing the quintessential cool Athens apartment for OU students living off-campus.
The kitchen has just been totally renovated with a dishwasher, ceramic tile floor, and gorgeous cabinets and new counter tops. The bathroom has also been redone with a cast iron porcelain tub and tiled tub surround. There is a laundry room with 2 washers and dryers for the tenants in the building.
I have included a video of Apt #5, which is almost identical (Curious?). Off-campus long-term parking is available in a lot around the corner for $204 per semester. The security deposit for this unit is $566 per bedroom. Sorry, no pets allowed.
What’s the neighborhood like?
This three bedroom apartment is truly inside the uptown neighborhood. You’re surrounded by student rentals and just a few seconds from Court Street around the corner, and you basically share a backyard with Lucky’s uptown! Tucked just off the corner of Congress and W Washington, this section of the street is like a little micro-community in the warmer months, because it’s close to campus, too.
