  • If someone says an apartment is “light filled”, shouldn’t the pictures reflect this too? Highly skeptical how a south-facing english basement can be “light-filled”…

    • South-facing windows will get a pretty decent amount of light, but I agree with your point about the photos. Even if the place is light-filled, the TWO interior photos certainly don’t show it.

  • This seems high for a small dark 1-bedroom that’s just barely outside of Truxton Circle. I’d say $1500-$1600 is more like it.

    • +1. This building may be in Shaw, but I had to look at a map to believe that it was. I know this building and, if you can believe it, it looks nicer in photos.

  • That’s a lot of money for very little space. I’d wager this goes closer to $1600/mo.

  • wow – $$$

  • Good deal.

  • I used to live in this building… I miss it! Great rooftop and kind neighbors!

  • It’s definitely in shaw – right off the 5th and R intersection. Great location. Price seems a little steep, since it’s a basement unit and quite small. Lots of big windows though.
