    Ugh – hipster delight is the worst. However, the place looks pretty cute. Not sure what condo fees are like, but the price seems decent for the location…

    • Anon

      It’s not a condo.

      • LedroitTigah

        Oops.

  • wdc

    Hipsters Delight? Is that like Turkish Delight? If so, ew, no thank you.
    And anyway, aren’t hipsters all baristas and graphic design freelancers? How can hipsters afford $800k houses?

  • Anon

    Whoa! Like, totally OMG hipster!

  • I Dont Get It

    I DONT THINK HIPSTER MEANS WHAT THE REAL ESTATE AGENT THINKS IT MEANS.

    • I Dont Get It

      OH WAIT! THERE IS A MURAL OF BEARDED ABRAHAM LINCOLN. TOTALLY HIPSTER NOW!

  • John

    I’m pretty sure “hipster delight” is what a debutante calls it when she hooks up with a guy in a band.

    • e

      Or a guy with a beard.

  • P. Lecheval

    Hipster Delight? Nope. That address is way too far from the heart of Shaw.

  • Planner

    Hipster or not, that bathroom tiling has to go.

    • I Dont Get It

      You mean the “EDGY UPDATED BATHS”? I hope both aren’t tiled like that. Otherwise I really like this place!

      • ***

        The tile would be okay if it wasn’t on literally every surface in the bathroom.

  • Hill Denizen

    There is absolutely nothing hipster about this place (except the mural), and calling it a “hipster delight” would probably be a turn off for the type of buyer who would go for a house like this. Other than the seizure-inducing bathroom tile, this is a really nice, tasteful place that would appeal to someone with traditional/transitional tastes.

  • Amber

    Former hipster (current sell out). In what possible sense of the word is this “Dupont?!?” Google maps puts the northern boundary at U street, but I’ve always thought T-S streets were more of the upper boundardy. This place is on V street.

  • anon

    Aside from the horrible bathroom tile choice (“edgy” is not what comes to mind), this seems reasonably priced for a house in that area. What gives?

  • neighbor

    THat’s going to sell for way more than the list price. Besides the tile work, it’s amazing. Would buy if could.

  • brookland_rez

    Adams Morgan = Hipster? LMAO.

  • jenster8dc

    “Hipster delight.” Whoever wrote this listing is fired.

  • HaileUnlikely

    I kind of hate that bathroom, and as the polar opposite of a morning person I absolutely require railings on all stairs (yes even that bottom flight of five steps; can fix in <30 minutes for <$200; just drives me nuts to see stuff like this), but there is enough to like here that I'd strongly consider buying this if I could. Given the size and location I suspect it will sell for well over the asking price. And note that if it doesn't, the previous owner, who bought in 2004, won't make a cent and might even take a loss after closing costs.

    • Anon

      Previous owner is too hipster to care, obv

      • textdoc

        Actual LOL!

    • Hill Denizen

      OMG, yes on the railing. I watch all those tiny house shows with lofts and ladders or teeny stairs, and I’m like, “I trip all over myself walking 15 feet on a flat surface to the bathroom. I’d get a concussion day one with a loft!”

    • textdoc

      I really don’t understand what prompts designers to omit railings for stairs. Railings aren’t just a good idea; they’re also (I believe) building code.

  • Alex

    Wow- I love this and the location. But it doesn’t look like there is parking. That’s a big bummer for $800k.

  • Ksass

    What kind of sadist puts that tiny ass tile all over every surface in every bathroom? How do you even keep all that grout looking clean?

  • Bloomy

    Does anyone know if this is popup, or if the third level is original? Either way, I really like it.

    • Anon

      Original

      • Bloomy

        Cool thanks

  • MtP

    Didn’t know what to expect about the bathroom tile based on the comments, but wow, it might be the worst I have ever seen, particularly because it covers every surface. Other than that, I think this is actually a very solid deal, and I would seriously consider it if I were in the market right now.

  • 11luke

    If this isn’t a condo it’s about 75K underpriced

  • Mark

    #Dupont, technically.

  • Anon

    I’m curious about how the square footage is divided over three floors. It looks like living room, dining area, and kitchen are all crammed into the first floor in around ~450 square feet. Does that make the top two floors all bedroom/bathroom? With what nevertheless looks like one really tiny bedroom? The space allocation could have something to do with the price here.

    • soozles

      It looks to me like there’s only a living room and kitchen with dining area but no real dining room. That would be an issue for me.

  • textdoc

    I saw the photo of the first bathroom and thought, “OK… well… the tiling isn’t ideal, but I don’t think it’s THAT bad.”
    .
    Then I saw the photo of the second bathroom. O. M. G.

  • textdoc

    This strikes me as slightly underpriced, considering the location and the number of bedrooms.

  • I think the tile is absolutely amazing. And a grout sealant will keep things looking fresh for years. Kudos to whoever made the choice not to put something other than subway tile in those bathrooms. The kitchen is a yawnfest, tho.
