    Man, 2 girls 1 cup really ruined anything with numbers in it.

  • This place is a weird mix of dated and 2013 flip. The kitchen (cabinets and backsplash especially) and powder room look straight out of 1997, while the bathroom fixtures look like someone walked into Home Depot and asked for whatever was “hot” and on sale. I know it’s sort of irrelevant, but the staging is awful – the shower curtains and bedspreads especially.
    The whole thing looks like someone did it with their eyes closed. Or grabbed whatever was in the discount bin.

    • Yes, the paint colors in the bedrooms are awful. I’d rather you leave them builder white than mauve or peach.

      • I think that shade of peach was my top choice for painting my bedroom – in 1986 when I was 11.

    • It’s a really charmless flip job. But I’m sure a couple with two kids will snatch it up at this price because they are desperate for space. At least when the kids draw on the wall, you’ll look forward to repainting a different color.

  • House is fine but living ON North Cap seems like it would be a nightmare and loud all the time.

  • Is this a house or a condo within a house? The listing says that it is Unit 2, so I’m assuming that the basement is a separate unit.

    • You’re right. It’s two units. One is for sale for 649K; the other for 695K. Both show the same photo set in MLS.

    • On Redfin it’s listed as two units (#1 and #2), but since this unit (#2) is the same size as the entire house that was sold in 2013, there must be some sort of glitch. Unless they did some giant build-out in the back.

      • Yes, it’s a pop up – they increased the overall size of the house. I have been watching the progress over the past couple of months as I drive by. I do appreciate that they used brick on the front facade of the pop-up.

  • I dont understand the strange half wall/breakfast bar in the kitchen separating it from the dining room. Why could they not put in a full peninsula with useable countertops and cabinets? It looks like they had the space for it.

    I think this is bad deal. N. Capitol is a very loud street. This flip does not appear well thought out.

  • Renovation itself is pretty standard, but the space and land are worth the price alone. With McMillan coming, that price is fair.

  • Assuming it’s the whole house, it’s not a bad deal. The reno is kinda meh, but paint color is an easy fix. Ditto on the N Cap concerns, but Bloomingdale is great and hopefully McMillian will get going!

  • When “decorators” tell you that a glass table will make the space look bigger – they are wrong. 100% wrong. It makes a space look more confused and cluttered.

  • The renovation is standard–which is not a bad thing, just means you paint and spruce up as you go. It’s a lot of money to live in a house that has been split into condos that’s on N. Cap, but for 3 br, 3 ba, I think it’s probably fair, given the inventory.
