  • Ugh – hipster delight is the worst. However, the place looks pretty cute. Not sure what condo fees are like, but the price seems decent for the location…

  • Hipsters Delight? Is that like Turkish Delight? If so, ew, no thank you.
    And anyway, aren’t hipsters all baristas and graphic design freelancers? How can hipsters afford $800k houses?

  • Whoa! Like, totally OMG hipster!

  • I Dont Get It

    I DONT THINK HIPSTER MEANS WHAT THE REAL ESTATE AGENT THINKS IT MEANS.

  • I’m pretty sure “hipster delight” is what a debutante calls it when she hooks up with a guy in a band.

  • Ashy Oldlady

    Hipster Delight? Nope. That address is way too far from the heart of Shaw.

  • Hipster or not, that bathroom tiling has to go.

    • I Dont Get It

      You mean the “EDGY UPDATED BATHS”? I hope both aren’t tiled like that. Otherwise I really like this place!

  • There is absolutely nothing hipster about this place (except the mural), and calling it a “hipster delight” would probably be a turn off for the type of buyer who would go for a house like this. Other than the seizure-inducing bathroom tile, this is a really nice, tasteful place that would appeal to someone with traditional/transitional tastes.

  • Former hipster (current sell out). In what possible sense of the word is this “Dupont?!?” Google maps puts the northern boundary at U street, but I’ve always thought T-S streets were more of the upper boundardy. This place is on V street.

  • Aside from the horrible bathroom tile choice (“edgy” is not what comes to mind), this seems reasonably priced for a house in that area. What gives?

  • THat’s going to sell for way more than the list price. Besides the tile work, it’s amazing. Would buy if could.

    Adams Morgan = Hipster? LMAO.

  • “Hipster delight.” Whoever wrote this listing is fired.

    I kind of hate that bathroom, and as the polar opposite of a morning person I absolutely require railings on all stairs (yes even that bottom flight of five steps; can fix in <30 minutes for <$200; just drives me nuts to see stuff like this), but there is enough to like here that I'd strongly consider buying this if I could. Given the size and location I suspect it will sell for well over the asking price. And note that if it doesn't, the previous owner, who bought in 2004, won't make a cent and might even take a loss after closing costs.

    • Previous owner is too hipster to care, obv

    • OMG, yes on the railing. I watch all those tiny house shows with lofts and ladders or teeny stairs, and I’m like, “I trip all over myself walking 15 feet on a flat surface to the bathroom. I’d get a concussion day one with a loft!”

    • I really don’t understand what prompts designers to omit railings for stairs. Railings aren’t just a good idea; they’re also (I believe) building code.

  • Wow- I love this and the location. But it doesn’t look like there is parking. That’s a big bummer for $800k.

  • What kind of sadist puts that tiny ass tile all over every surface in every bathroom? How do you even keep all that grout looking clean?

  • Does anyone know if this is popup, or if the third level is original? Either way, I really like it.

  • Didn’t know what to expect about the bathroom tile based on the comments, but wow, it might be the worst I have ever seen, particularly because it covers every surface. Other than that, I think this is actually a very solid deal, and I would seriously consider it if I were in the market right now.

  • If this isn’t a condo it’s about 75K underpriced

  • #Dupont, technically.

  • I’m curious about how the square footage is divided over three floors. It looks like living room, dining area, and kitchen are all crammed into the first floor in around ~450 square feet. Does that make the top two floors all bedroom/bathroom? With what nevertheless looks like one really tiny bedroom? The space allocation could have something to do with the price here.

    • It looks to me like there’s only a living room and kitchen with dining area but no real dining room. That would be an issue for me.

  • I saw the photo of the first bathroom and thought, “OK… well… the tiling isn’t ideal, but I don’t think it’s THAT bad.”
    .
    Then I saw the photo of the second bathroom. O. M. G.

  • This strikes me as slightly underpriced, considering the location and the number of bedrooms.

  • I think the tile is absolutely amazing. And a grout sealant will keep things looking fresh for years. Kudos to whoever made the choice not to put something other than subway tile in those bathrooms. The kitchen is a yawnfest, tho.
