    That might be the worst virtual tour of all time.

    What is this, a house for ants!

    Heh, “steps” to Columbia Heights Metro…that’s a whole lotta steps. And that all-marble kitchen island is god-awful.

    • JJ

      Could not agree more about the island and countertops in the kitchen. Ick.

        It hurts my eyes.

        Also, total waste of money, and I’m a sucker for marble countertops.

      It looks like a sarcophagus. I keep expecting the lid to slide open and a mummy to crawl out…

    This seems high for a condo in this area. Pretty far north to charge this much and not own a whole house.

    • That Man A


      to add onto that a $300/ mo condo fee….

    Yea, this is a horrible deal all around.

    Bad photo tour, bad staging, bad (deceptive) description, bad (vanilla) reno… Bad deal.

    I love how they specified that the parking space was big enough for 2 Mini Coopers… so basically 1 normal sized car.

  • I didn’t realize I lived so close to the gourmet Giant mega store.

    The configuration of the back of the building is just awful. The decks are all connected and you get no privacy from your neighbors whatsoever. Someone could just walk right in the back of your house….

    This is my hood which I love but that said 700k for a 3 bedroom condo plus a monthly fee? What are they smoking?

    • anon

      i have the exact same feelings. but i would love a toke of whatever it is.

    The condos don’t do much for me but that building had been abandoned and boarded up for years so this definitely an improvement for the block.

  • The sarcophagus in the kitchen is hilarious. What a great conversation piece. That solid wall outside the second (?) bedroom is most unfortunate.

    And I love the last photo of “Mt. Pleasant Square.” Heck, we always called that “Bus Turn-around Park!”

  • I can’t find one single thing I like about this place. Wow.
