    That’s a lot of money for 2 windows. Pass.

      Right?! I saw this and was thinking that my basement-level unit actually gets more light than this thing!

  • anonymous

    Do you have to step over / scoot by the toilet to enter the tub/shower?

  • west_egg

    $615k for views of a brick wall and a bank of electric meters in a dicey neighborhood? Nope.

  • Lisa Godard

    Ooooh Keyless entry. That makes me want to run and buy the $615,000 condo. No wait, I put keyless locks on my house built in 1942 for under $200.

    Why on earth are there neighborhood photos of Adams Morgan in the listing??

      Dan’s Cafe does not convey.

  • Dan

    Looks like a 3rd floor walk-up. Nope!

    For that money, buy a single-family house! Am I right that the mortgage plus condo fees are equivalent to buying a $670k single-family? Gut job renovations are going for about that 2 blocks east (where the living is much nicer than on this weird block)

      To be fair, I’d rather take a walk-up in this area. Keeps the condo fees low and resale value high – elevators are a massive money drain.
      Regardless, this apartment is dismal and stupidly overpriced (maybe by at least $100K). It’s the basement level condo – you can tell by the high windows and that ugly “plank” ceramic tile flooring. No no no.

        Looks more like a ground level unit rather than a basement. Still, a bit overpriced for ground level. Maybe 615K for one of the upper units.

    yeah, that place is nowhere near the CH metro, and even further from adams morgan. they appear to be trying to conceal the fact that it’s on the other side of sherman, closer to petworth. not only is that a bad deal in general for the location and size, but i’d be wary of other discrepancies, given the deceptive neighborhood shots. this seems like the kind of ‘new construction’ that will have a lot of under-the-surface problems off the bat.
