The flyer says:

“Wonderfully renovated sunny top-floor 1 Br + den. Newly designed kitchen, stunning glass backsplash, custom maple cabinets, granite & new Bosch SS appl. Marble floored bathroom w/ custom vanity, mosaic backsplash & rainfall shower head. Gleaming Georgia pine wood floors with large foyer. Spacious master bedroom, double-size cedar-lined closets. Pet friendly building. Parking for 18 cars.”

You can find more info here and photos here.

That is a pretty cool backsplash! Though I’m guessing the parking for 18 cars is a typo? Note that a neighbor just went under contract for $364,000 and a studio on a lower floor is going for $199,000.

But for this unit do you think $384,900 is reasonable for this 1 bed+den/1bath?

    I’ll take it!

  • The stunning backsplash-seeing it makes me want every wall to be glass mosaic. Now THAT would be stunning. It looks like the den is a walk-in closet with a tiny desk and smaller lamp in it. I would like living close to the “Nathional” Zoo.

  • I’m planning to do a similar backsplash in my kitchen. I wish I could see how they finished the edge. Is it Schluter-JOLLY ?

  • I think te parking in that building is first come, first served so 18 spots total.

  • seems like a deal to me. Thats cheaper than columbia heights prices. If only that fountain in the courtyard was a pool. Then it would be steller. As for the tiny Den. by new construction standards that would be called a 2nd bedroom in the listing.

  • It’s already under contract, so obviously the buyer thought it was a good deal. And it is. But I hate those built-in shelves/cabinets. Hate them. Other than that, it’s a steal.

  • hey! I have that backsplash in amber (Walker Zenger). mine is nicer, but it’s not for sale 😉

  • Very nice and I think a very competitive price given the condition and the neighborhood. I wish more condos would include the square footage in the listing, but it looks to be a decent size (~750-800?).

    The realtor gets extra credit for honesty calling it a den instead of a (teeny tiny, closet-less, window-less) “bedroom.”

  • I will take it

  • Good deal for sure.

  • The location sounds good geographically, but so many of the units in these older buildings along that stretch of Connecticut are cheap because they are often small, dark and free of modern amenities like central a/c and in-unit laundry.

  • nice work Jamal

    on a related note, why would anyone drop > $1200 on backsplash tile/material and not pony up a few hundred extra for a slide in range? The free standing stove breaks the sightline of a beautiful tile job.
