How much is rent for an apartment with a balcony in DuPont?
How many apartments with balconies are available for rent in DuPont?
The DuPont Company established a town in 1906 as a means to support the community of workers and their families that were employed at the company powder factory. Resident families who first moved to the area colloquially dubbed the community "The Village."
DuPont's roots extend deep into the history of Washington State and the development of our fledgling nation. When the British-owned Hudson's Bay Company initially arrived in the northwest territory in the early 1830s, they established Fort Nisqually in what is now DuPont, Washington. The trade center operated for several decades exchanging furs, agriculture and other northwest goods across the developing United States. The Hudson's Bay Company is still in operation today-350 years after its founding-and the company is active in parts of the northern U.S. and Canada. The Powder Works Explosives factory facilitated the growth of the area, and the town eventually developed into the historic city it is today.
The DuPont Museum is located in this first planned community, and is a popular attraction for visitors. The Museum features award-winning displays of early northwest life, and proudly shares its history and recent recognition of being added to the National Register of Historic Places, where it remains the only company town in Washington State with nearly all of its original 110 historic homes intact. Amidst its homes are 19th-century amenities that seem commonplace in modern-day neighborhoods, as well. These include a general store, a hotel, club house, walking trails, and parks that were all added into the original planning for the community. See more
Balconies are a coveted amenity for many renters looking for high-rise views and opportunities for fresh air. However, you should keep in mind that balconies often come with restrictions.
Before signing a lease, ask about how many people can be on the balcony at once. Also, ask about whether you’re allowed to store a bike or other items.
You’ll also want to know about any maintenance schedules. Using your balcony as storage could result in fines and intervention from your property management.
Keep in mind that not all balconies are created equally. You may discover the views of the parking area are less than optimal or reduce your overall privacy.
Balconies can also get messy with debris, foliage, dirt, and pollen depending on your location. Renters are typically responsible for any clean-up and basic balcony upkeep.
Regardless of the issues to keep in mind, balconies are usually a big win for DuPont renters. Ask about apartments on higher floors for the best views.
