    Love that mirror

    Would be surprised if its still on the market Monday.

      I agree – it should go quickly at that price or above. Unless there’s something terrible about it that’s not apparent.

    I thought this building was associated with the Chinese diplomatic mission and that it was a single family residence. May be I’m confused, but I could swear I saw it featured the WaPo a few years back and listed for about ~$20mm

      It used to be (from 1902-1944), but is now referred to as the “Chinese Embassy Condominiums”.

    It looks really nice but I literally LOL’d at the GIANT ugly mirror that’s trying to make that wall look like it’s not a wall.

      No no no it’s CLEARLY just the entrance to a couple hundred extra square feet of living space.

    That yellow tile backsplash really clashes with that ugly stone floor and the gray/off-white walls.

    • anon

      Plus that partial column of exposed brick…

      I also don’t understand condos that have a 1 pet per unit limit.

    I’m going to guess this was a developer special that didn’t have anyone with a design or space planning background involved. The kitchen, aside from having 5 different materials that don’t match, would be significantly more functional turned 90°, with the closed, bar facing the front door and the opening into the kitchen on the dining room side. Your first impression when you walk in the door wouldn’t be looking directly into the guts of the kitchen AND you would be able to move between the kitchen and dining area without having to circumvent the bar.

      Except you wouldn’t because there’s clearly a big ole support column between the kitchen and dining area.

    What is that weird alcove in the wall in the second bedroom? The second bedroom is also really small. I’d say it’s more a 1br + den.

      Yeah, the French doors made me suspicious as to its bedroom-ness.
