    After looking at the pictures I can see why the bragged about the soap dishes and medicine cabinets. Bland all over. I guess if someone really wants to live in Columbia Heights this can be a good deal. I’m not that person so I’d take my nearly $400K and buy a house in Manor Park or Michigan Park.

      I’m no particular fan of this unit — $375K for an English basement in this area of Columbia Heights sounds crazy to me — but in what way do you find it “bland,” and what would constitute “not bland” for you? Exposed ductwork?
      I still don’t see the appeal of super-busy backsplashes, but other than that (and the price/location, and the smallish size) the unit seems OK to me.

        to me bland is a $400,000 gray basement unit. but i live in a 100 year old cottage with original features. so what do i know.

          Fair enough (and I too am fond of my 100-year-old rowhouse with original woodwork, transoms, etc.). But most rowhouses that have been split up into condos don’t have any remaining original features, either because there was nothing left worth preserving or because it was easier for the builders to gut the place. So it’s sort of the nature of the beast, no?
          What bothers me significantly more are all of the condos/houses with “open plan” bowling-alley living rooms/dining rooms/kitchens, exposed brick, open staircases with no risers, vessel sinks, and busy backsplashes/tile. So this one seems pretty decent in comparison (busy backsplash but no other offending items).

    Washer/dryer and a walk-in closet. I think it’s a good deal.

    Overpriced for a one-bedroom, basement apartment, even if newly renovated.

    I agree with some of the previous posts, there is some tacky, generic cosmetic aspects to the place. However, those are easily replaceable. This is a great deal for a 1 bedroom (albeit a basement) with an outside area in Columbia Heights. Remember, part of what you are paying for is the location and this is not replaceable like a mirror or backsplash. This is a quiet block and about a 5 minute walk north of the madness of 14th and U St and a 5 minute walk south of the madness of DC USA. Seems pretty awesome to me…..
