    The condo fee is more than my mortgage.

    • Yep, same here.

    • anon

      Haha, I had the exact same thought!!

    • AnonDC

      Twice my rent!

  • Seriously, what amenities can a building possibly have that justify a $2600+/month condo fee? I’d really like to know.

    • hmmm

      Really really educated hookers?

      That building is old. Any repairs or necessary alterations are going to be very expensive. Then expect that the tenants are going to have very, very high expectations. Very high expectations are also very expensive expensive.

      If I had serious money I wouldn’t have to be forced to buy that place.

      • Yeah, the maintenance on places of this age is astronomical. Plus I’m pretty sure the building has 24/7 staff at the front desk, a cleaning crew, and a superintendant for dealing with minor maintenance issues like leaky faucets.

        • They’ll definitely have a super on hand to deal with that. I live in a co-op in Cleveland Park and my responsibility for the unit is from the paint on the walls inward. Anything outside that, the building typically takes care of. We had a clogged kitchen sink and they sent the staff to take care of it. It’s not a terrible way to ease into home ownership.

    • It’s a co-op so it covers the taxes, gas, heat, water, building staff, etc.

      • Yep – here’s the full list from the MLS…

    LOVE!

    When the Ritz Carlton residences opened in 2001 or 2002, they were going for $375 sq/ft. I scoffed at that ridiculously high price. Wish I bought two in retrospect.

  • JenDC

    Always a treat to see inside these “Grande Dame” buildings – thanks PoP!

  • jcm

    That apartment is spectacular. That’s the sexiest house porn posted here in a long while.

  • Anonymous

    Gorgeous.

  • CHQueen

    That is very old-school Washington house porn. Beautiful, but you’re so removed from everything. I’d rather be in a hipper neighborhood.

      Since when is a 10 minute walk to the Dupont Metro removed?

      • Anonymous

        dupont’s hip? fascinating.

        • Anonymous

          What’s hip then? And what’s “everything”?

        • Anonymous

          Also, who said Dupont’s hip?

          • T

            The current breed of hipsters don’t know how to use the metro… so even if you’re five minutes from the redline you’re not “close” to anything in their book.

    • ABCD

      I think it’s a great location – quick walk to Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan, or Woodley Park.

  • Anon

    It’s even closer to Woodley Park metro.

  • I think that interior design style is called “Frida Kahlo Exploded”

      your comment made me click on the link. looks like a normal place to me.

  • Jes

    It’s beautiful, though not my taste. But for the price I’d want a much larger kitchen.

  • holy macaroni! A co-op fee of $2600 and no pool?! What do they think this is, communist Russia?
