    I’ve always wondered about these. The interior is kind of blah but it’s a good deal. Maybe it’s all the toys in the photos, but I think this would be an ideal place to raise kids. You have dedicated off-street parking, and a decent amount of space, and the location has a lot of features that would appeal to parents (very close to Lincoln Park, the school, the Safeway and Harris Teeter, the Pretzel Bakery, and the Crepe place).

  • Bland and blech, but probably a good deal. Just hard to get excited about a place that has no soul.

      Yeah, bring back Kentucky Courts (the notorious public housing project that these ‘soul’-less units replaced)! Something tells me that this complex is close to completely devoid of the kind of violence that really gave the old nabe some pizazz!

  • I am left desiring photos that are not blurry.

    As a parent, I would have to say the in boundary school for this address is less than ideal. The Pretzel’s are awesome though.

    I strongly dislike these houses. I walk by them every day and they don’t fit the character of the neighborhood!
