  • Great deal.

  • Location. location, location (schools)… b/c I’m not seeing much else to justify this price.

    • It’s in the Palisades. It’s renovated. It has hardwood floors. The price doesn’t surprise me at all.
      The only flaw I see is that there’s (I think) only one upper kitchen cabinet — the rest of the kitchen cabinets are lower cabinets.

    • Schools AND walking distance to some restaurants, etc.

  • I wouldn’t be surprised to see this go for substantially over list, especially because of the furnished lower level that could potentially help generate rental income. It’s a really cute place and I bet there will be a lot of competition for it.

  • Very adorable! I’d be in to this…..(but am also glad my housing costs are about to go waaaaaay down).

    Seems nice enough, didn’t realize you could get a place this cheap in this location.

    • I sincerely doubt you really can. I looked pretty closely at this general area a year ago and didn’t even see anything on the market for less that 800k. I’m guessing it’s priced for a bidding war unless there’s something I’m missing from the photos.

    • Look at the street view on Google Maps – must be the raggediest block in the Palisades.

      • True. I also just realized that it has that fake brick stuff on the front, and just one the one half on the left. I still think it’s cute, but now understand the listing price bitter. I guess we’ll see if it’s enough to stop a bidding war. I still think it will go for over asking.

        • Nicely spotted on the (painted) formstone! I guess that’s the reason why the exterior photo shows the house from a distance — I missed it.

    I guess I am the only one confused about how a 3 story home can only have 2 bedrooms? Tried to figure out the layout looking at pictures, especially because it almost looks as if one of those 2 bedrooms is in the basement. Seems a bit ridiculous to me.

    • There are 2 bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. The furnished lower level looks like it has two areas that could be used for sleeping, but aren’t legal bedrooms.

  • Where’s this large closet? Did I miss something?

  • I have serious rug envy.

  • What is going on in in that pic with the wood slats and the small door (pic 18 or 21 on Redfin)? Is that a rooftop deck? I don’t understand why the ad would mention a custom closet and not include a pic but fails to mention a roof top deck (that looks very dangerous!)

    • 18 OF 21 on Redfin

    • There is a virtual tour for this property that explains that there is a ladder from the master bedroom up to this roof deck. It doesn’t show the closet, though, and I agree that is odd.

      • I think the closet must be behind the wall of curtain in the part of the master bedroom with the desk – that’s all that makes sense for that big curtain. Odd they don’t show the second bedroom on the top floor.
