The flier says:

“East facing unit. SQFT per Tax Record. Large, open Living & Dining rooms w/ space for home office. Gourmet kitchen with dark granite counters. Spacious Bedroom, W/ D in unit, hardwoods + plush carpet. 3 blocks – U St METRO. RENTAL PKG AVAIL. Seller reserves right to accept/reject all offers.”

More info found here and a virtual tour found here.

I have a serious question – what is considered the best direction to have for a condo? East? West? So I think this is a good looking condo but the major detraction, to me, is that it sits right next to a gas station. How much discount (if any) do you think there should be for being directly next to a gas station? Does $399,555 sound reasonable for this 1 bed/1 bath?
