  • “Emanate”?

  • I think this will end up going above the asking price, looks like they a pretty good job, but why put the sink in the island and not under the window?

      So they can talk to their guests while they clean up? Sounds horrible. I say put the sink under the window and put a wall back up!

  • So no dining room? Where does everyone eat when you have a dinner party? Stale, boring. I like the bird pictures in the bathroom though.

    If we had the money for a down payment, we’d buy it. I agree that I’d want the kitchen sink under the window. I also don’t like the sink in the upstairs bathroom. Get something classic, that looks like a utility sink I’d wash my dogs in.

  • Seems like a good deal to me!

  • It’s nice, but I think I would get tired of not having an option to eat at a proper dining table. not to mention, the issue it could present when entertaining.

  • Looks like they didn’t put the sink under the window because they couldn’t fit the dishwasher there too? I agree it’s odd placement, but I like my sink to be next to my dishwasher.

    • + I was just about to suggest that as well.

    • Plus, with the sink and dish washer located in the only visible eating area, where do you stack the dirty dishes from the dinner party that you can’t really have because there’s no place to sit? Awful and impractical layout.

  • Accountering

    Big fan of this one. We are looking to purchase a second home to AirBNB, and this spot seems just about perfect. Everything isn’t lined up yet, but this would definitely be a good buy as an investment property.

  • Formerly Broken Jaw

    Every time a vessel sink is installed somewhere a kitten dies.

  • I watched them working on it. The house is tiny but the works looks pretty good.

    The layout makes no sense, if you are standing on the sidewalk, you see all the way through to the fridge.

  • There seems to be a problem with the photos–they disappear after a few seconds. Anyway…it’s only 900 sf and there are condos in pricier parts of town that would offer more space for the money.

  • I saw this house today. For the price you can’t beat it. Very high end finishes. Beats the hell out of a condo!

  • We live around the corner and went to the open house – I’m usually underwhelmed by flipped houses but they did a GREAT job on this one. The finishes are high-end but not over the top and the custom steel handrails are nice as well.
