  • Ooh wow, love it. That may be my dream house right there (though I’d decorate a bit differently).

    Seems like an accurate price, but the fee is a little high… maybe it includes the parking and storage?

  • Gorgeous space. I typically do not like condos, but this one might convert me if I didn’t love gardening so much/have dogs.

  • I’m pretty sure I love it, though it’s hard to say for certain with those terrible little pictures. I suppose it’ll sell quick no matter what, so why bother with a high quality listing, right?

  • Nice looking place, if you’re into that sorta thing.

  • The problem with some of these loft-style units is that there is no privacy in the second bedroom. It’s partly open to the living/dining/kitchen area. So if you’re watching TV or entertaining in the main living space, the second bedroom is practically unusable for sleeping.

  • Looks pretty slick. It will sell easily in this market.

    Is it just me or is that building awning askew? Maybe it’s a “feature?”

    Normally I really dislike the whole idea of condos like these for my own personal wants, but this one seems pretty nice. The sqft isn’t listed, but assuming it’s not horribly undersized it seems like a very fair price for this neighborhood.

  • Is that column thingy really necessary?

    • I’m guessing “yes”. Many of these loft-style buildings were converted from warehouses that valued open space, and the column likely allowed sufficient support for that open space.

      I HIGHLY doubt that someone consciously thought that placing a thick concrete pillar in the middle of an otherwise open floor plan would be a good idea.

  • Love the loft and the light, but it sort of looks like Design Within Reach threw up all over it.
