  • Wow, other than that little shelving system they built, there are zero closets in this place. It’s cute, but I think a little overpriced by about $100.

  • Coin-op laundry? pass. This place looks like it has plenty of room, but very few amenities.

    Looks great for the price – particularly since utilities are all included. Beautiful space.

  • Beautiful space. It’d be tough to get stuff up those stairs though!

    I think it’s a good deal – utilities included, close to metro, and looks like a nice place. Someone who is good at interior decorating could make this open space into a really cozy apartment.

  • Beautiful space, and very convenient that utilities are included. I still think it’s a little overpriced for the area/lack of amenities. Also, the photos show that the apartment is basically above a garage, but there’s no parking available? Weird.

  • As others mentioned, lack of storage is a big minus.

  • is that a garage downstairs? if so might be noisey.

    • My main thought was that living over a garage would be COLD. (Or hot, in the summer.) Good thing utilities are included.

  • Storage can always be added – space cannot. When I built my basement apt. I went for an enormous bedroom with an efficient, but ordinary (not walk-in) closet. It is easier to bring in an Ikea wardrobe for those who need the extra space. Especially for a rental like a studio or basement where you pretty much expect people to stay only a year or two.

    I don’t know the neighborhood, but total utilities + cable & wireless is at least $200.00 a month, so seems not outrageous.

  • I agree with those saying this is a good deal. It’s a unique apartment with a lot of flexible space in a good location.
