The listing says:

“Started out perfectly by raising the ceiling, this two bedroom apartment mixes modern updates in the kitchens and baths along with classic hardwood floors and exposed brick along the entire hallway!

The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, disposal, stainless steel appliances, granite counters, gas oven and range, brand new double door fridge and counter island to create a space a chef would envy.

Two full bathrooms are also remodeled with great tile accents and crisp lighting.

Along with the exposed brick walls is a fresh paint job, new energy efficient doors and windows throughout, and a working gas fireplace.

If that was not enough, this unit includes W/D in unit, one DEDICATED parking spot and a brand new 46″ PLASMA TV!!”

Does $2,350 sound reasonable for this 2 bed/2bath?

  • I try not to point out typos, but the first word should be “Started”, not “tarted”.

    However, I would like to see more properties described as “tarted out”. Would be interesting.

  • Too much for a basement apartment.

  • Hardwoods in a basement – isn’t that a bit risky (for the owner)?

    • I hope not! We have hardwood in our basement. However, there is a waterproof layer that should protect from any ground seepage. so the only worry would be a leaky pipe.

      • Yeah, sorry about that because in 5 years a leak is inevitable. Overflowing tub/washer/dish washer/water heater from above – will happen. Anyone contemplating – go with wood laminate or tile

  • I think it’s a little pricey by a few hundred bucks for a basement given the location, but the reno, the parking spot, and the tv certainly help. If utilities were included it would be a good deal.

  • A TV nowadays is what – $500? Not much incentive. Looks like a pretty good reno – and sweet yard ornaments – but still, for space, location and other available options – maybe 2000.00

  • Why is the fireplace in the kitchen?! Seems like that kitchen renovation could have been planned better…

    • The fireplace isn’t something you can just move around, I’m sure you understand that. The kitchen is probably in that corner so all the plumbing can be tied into the plumbing used for the bathroom. Had they put the plumbing on the otherside of the room/fireplace, they would have had to incur the cost of running all the drains and water lines across the room..

  • i think it is fair for holmead village.

  • You can’t tell from the picture- those might be engineered hardwood floors, which are basically a thin strip of hardwood with plywood underneath. Those are ok for basements, while a true hardwood floor is not.

  • Too expensive for that neighborhood, too expensive for a basement, way too expensive for both.

    $1800… maybe.

    i used to date someone over there. That part of 14th is no place to be at night.

  • I live a few blocks from there, and our 4 bedroom rents for not that much more. Granted, this is a nice renovation, so a premium makes sense. Holmead is a great, leafy street that feels much calmer than 14th but it’s convenient to the metro/Target. I would think this place should be a good solid two hundred dollars cheaper, even with the renovation.
