    Wow! I totally hated the Daring Design. This one more than makes up for it! Drool.

  • anon

    Could I just move into the closet?

  • Anonynon

    kind of upsetting that people pay 16,000 per month in rent alone :/ capitalism!

    • Accountering

      Why would what other people pay in rent upset you? They have more money than you do, and they choose to spend more on rent than you do as a result.

      • Anon

        Wow, that almost sounds like genuine question. I’m going to let you think it through, though. You got this! ;-)

      • AK

        Ha, thank you Accountering for being a voice of reason on here! I venture to guess that Anonynon is one of the countless Bernie Sanders fans who cry how “Gentrification=racism”, yet he/she is … one of the ones doing the gentrifying, and in the very next breath is paying $40 for some cheese at Whole Foods. :/ hypocrisy!

        People can do what they want with their money, but that society allows people to retain the amount of wealth and/or income necessary for 16k a month is a real issue that should upset everyone. Taxes must be too low if people can afford this.

        • dcd

          It’s impossible to address all of the issues packed into this short post, so I’ll just say, “thank you for your contribution” and leave it at that.

          if you are a typical D.C. professional, most people in this country think that YOU don’t pay enough in taxes. How do you feel about that?

          • Anon

            They’re right?

          • sameanon

            I agree with most people in this country. People here, myself included, are in the top echelon of pay and/or wealth and we have a responsibility to shoulder more of the tax burden. A good start would be equalizing the fed cap gains rate to the income rate. Also, increasing the dc property tax rate for property valued over 1mil.

        • Andre

          Most people agree that the rich should pay more taxes. Unfortunately, most people classify the rich as individuals who make more that they do. Anyone who believes that they don’t pay enough in taxes however, is permitted to file their return without claiming deductions that they are otherwise entitled to. I’d be interested to see if those talking all that garbage are willing forgo their mortgage interest and property tax deductions. Don’t forget to leave out your stock losses and don’t bother making any 401K or IRA contributions. Hopefully, you’ll feel better after you pay more of your share.

  • Gorgeous. Does it come with its own private elevator, though? Because if I’m paying $16K a month, I’m not riding up with commoners.

    • anon

      Ha, this made my giggle. You sound like my husband!

    • Anon

      Spoken like a true plebe. There’s a strict “no commoners allowed” policy in the building that’s policed with utmost vigilance. Rest assured – you’ll be protected by a small pack of Doberman Pinschers that come directly from the Apolda region of Germany, known for their keen ability to bite unsuspecting commoners right in the nads.

  • Ally

    I have never before sounded more like a girl, but I need that closet.

    • fka Shawess

      +1. If I had that closet, I’d happily live in … the other closet.

    • shadesofpale

      I don’t even have enough clothes for that, but yes please

  • Claytron

    Wow. An office AND a library. The bathroom alone appears to be 2-3 times the size of my bedroom.

  • emvee

    When someone else’s closet gets way better light than the entirety of your house…

  • Blithe

    Perhaps I’m being hugely picky here, but I can’t find the 5th bedroom on the floor plan. I see the master suite, and on the other side, I see two bedrooms and the au pair suite. Since I’m really drooling over the closet, the library and the gallery, maybe I can use this small oversight to negotiate a price drop…. (enjoying my afternoon delusion)

    • dcd

      I have to say, I am less impressed by the kitchen than I thought I’d be. I know it’s a personal thing, but if I had the kind of scratch needed to buy/rent/own this place, my kitchen would be truly spectacular.
      And, I agree – where’s bedroom 5?

      • Anon A. Mouse

        Sure, but the only time you’ll see the kitchen is when the staff is late and you need to debase yourself by getting your own snack.

  • Anon

    Honestly, I’d feel pretty poor renting here. Like, don’t be cheap and just buy a damned condo or something. Those closing costs are likely rounding error anyway.
