    That main living area looks awfully cramped and awkward. I don’t think I’d want that TV mounted next to the dining room table. Seems a little over priced, but I’m not very familiar with rents in that neighborhood.

    White cabinets were a mistake in that kitchen. The white marble would pop much more against a darker color, like a navy blue.

      Dark colors make spaces look smaller. If the space looks cramped now, it’d look even more cramped with dark-colored kitchen cabinets.

    The photos make it feel like a basement apartment – there’s no natural light in the kitchen, living or dining areas. Man, if this gets rented for this price I’m going to have to re-evaluate renting out my condo!

      I was thinking the same thing (re. looking like a basement apartment). It looks from the photo of the exterior as though this unit has to be above ground, but the photos showing the windows certainly don’t make it look like it.
      Maybe part of the problem is that they took photos on an overcast day… but even still.

        The unit is above ground, the bedrooms are the only rooms with windows. I think it is overpriced, but they are brand new and sold for over $350,000.

    This price for this location is beyond absurd.

    I looked at one of these units when they were for sale last summer. There’s 4 in the building, two ground floor and two above. The giant marble counter takes up more than half of the living area, to the point where neither I nor my real estate agent could imagine a place to put living room furniture. Terrible use of space. Also, I don’t remember exactly what the price on these was but I’m pretty sure it was under 350k, so renting it for 2800 a month seems highly ludicrous. Nice new building for someone who has no furniture or wants to use the living area as a kitchen, I guess!

    A basement, in Northeast, for 3000. No DC, no!

    There’s a developer/flipper of multi-unit buildings in the Brentwood/Brookland area who seems to specialize in units like this (bedrooms at opposite ends with the L/D/K in the middle with no windows), and I’d bet dollars to donuts this unit is from the same person/company. Many of these units were converted from 1- to 2-bedrooms by enclosing a rear patio, and the larger bedroom used to be where the L/D/K are in the renos, with no windows in that bedroom. I don’t love the layout (I spend more time in the living room than the bedroom, so having no windows in the living room is kind of depressing), but I sort of understand it, given what he/she’s working with. FWIW, for the 3 buildings I *know* are from that developer, they’ve had no trouble selling them for a decent sum…

      *The conversion from 1- to 2-bedrooms happened before this developer/flipper got their hands on them. So, again, working with the “materials” at hand.
