  • Almost half a million dollars for a 1st floor apartment with only 752 square feet and street parking? No way I would pay that type of cash to live there. It’s really a 1br. I’m thinking 380k tops.

  • Makes me like Petworth more and more. Someone will pay, I’m sure.

  • small but solid and reasonable fees. that is such a great block.

    Ooo I love that street. Under 500k sounds like a decent enough deal, and the apartment looks lovely.

  • I toured it this weekend. It is small but feels larger than it is, probably on account of the high ceilings and large windows, which give the place some charm. The bathrooms were only average. Floors were a bit uneven. No outdoor space. This is one of the most beautiful blocks in Dupont/Logan. I think it will go near asking–perhaps slightly under.

  • If the den/second BR is above ground, then it’s a good deal.

    If the second BR is below ground, then it’s overpriced. And I, for one, would never buy something that’s partially underground – leaks, spiders, centipedes, etc. aren’t my idea of fun.

    • If you build it correctly (and in this case, I seriously doubt they did, given how bad the pictures look), you’ll never have “leaks, spiders, centipedes, etc.”

      I wish DCRA would fine developers (upon final inspection and before attaining a CofO) who go out of their way to do things on the cheap. Sucks because it is such a beautiful street.

  • the layout of the living space when you walk in is really freaking awkward. more than 1/2 a step and you’ll walk into the back of the couch. I can tell they were trying to force it to look like it had large and distinct living and eating areas, but it ain’t working.
