    wow, this leasing agent and I have very different definitions of the word luxury. in my mind it means the kitchen is large enough to hold the fridge so it’s not sitting in a corner of the living room.

      I’ve read quite often that having a fridge on carpet is *the* definition of luxury.

      • bll

        boy, do I have a LOT to learn.

    • ANC

      It’s the cutting edge of interior design! NO ONE is doing that in kitchens right now.

    • FratStarrrrrrr

      Being able to reach the fridge from the couch sounds like a luxury to me

  • anon

    Yeah, the owner needs to renovate the kitchen so that there is room for a refrigerator INSIDE the kitchen, even if it means spending for a smaller counter-depth fridge, and/or removing walls to expand the kitchen area to accommodate a fridge.
    Not that some young person, planning not to stay too long, won’t rent it as it is, this town being what it is as far as rentals go.

      That’s also a very good price, so yeah – somebody young will rent it. I had an agent show me an apartment once where every window looked out to a brick wall. And he had lots of applications.

      • MtPForMe

        I lived in an apartment like that once. My cactus died in the window.

        I don’t doubt that SOMEONE will rent it, but I don’t know that the price is a good deal. I just moved out of a Bloomingdale English basement nearby with a much nicer reno and layout and paid just under $1500, all utilities included. Maybe we got lucky?

        • Dave

          Definitely could be, but also depends where in Bloomingdale… this intersection can be iffy at night (and maybe the day?) but it’s definitely a lot closer to the metro than parts of Bloomingdale, so $$$.

    Looking at Google Streetview, I’m pretty sure there was a Popville discussion about a rental in this building last year. Sadly, it looks like its improved since then.

      I think it was, too. But who thinks installing dark green carpet is an “upgrade?” In the grand scheme of things, I’d prefer some cheap laminate to that room-darkening, outdated mess on the floor.
