    Why do realtors post multiple photos of one room from every possible angle and absolutely none of the bedroom or bathroom?

      I think “1 br penthouse loft” might be a realtor euphemism for “studio with high ceilings.”

  • This seems high. I don’t think 1BRs here go for this much. Given that it is the “Penthouse” with 5 windows… Sigh, I would say it is probably like $2250.

    Something is not right. It is listed as a 1bed/1bath. Unless there is another level, I think what this is would technically be a studio or an efficiency (technically there is a difference so I think it would be a studio and not an efficiency. Can’t remember now which is which. Anyway, I don’t think legally it can be a 1 bedroom since there is no real door or closet in the “room.” I’ll give the realtor the benefit of the doubt by saying there is a window, though can’t tell for sure from these photos. If that’s the caes, that makes the monthly rent even more absurd. It’s a pretty street in the Adams Morgan neighborhood, the space is not as per the tedium usual, which is nice, but the modern euro look has to appeal to a potential renter, which I think it easily could. The high ceilings are nice and some will like the odd angles while others would say that is a negative. Seems high for what you really get.

    • Agreed, it really does seem high. I think they can get the requested rent with enough patience though… it’s a beautiful apartment.
