    All that exposed brick – not a fan. Even in a rental it would drive me crazy.

    Exposed brick is one thing, but this has the look of just being unfinished. Stunning this is not.

    looks spacious though. not a bad deal.

    The kitchen isn’t great, but I’ll take all the exposed brick that the rest of you don’t want!

    My OCD coupled with the vastly different molding would keep me up at night. I have original plaster in the main part of the house but the addition was recently insulated, the temperature differences are marked. That bedroom with two uninsulated walls scares me. I guess utilities are included so it matters less.

    No washer/dryer? Not even a combo unit?

  • So “penthouse” has become a very slippery term – but I would say that any apt. where your windows look across an alley into other windows is definitely NOT a penthouse!

    How interesting. I’m a realtor whose client put an offer in on this place back in Sept when it was for sale. It was listed at around $375k, and got bid up to over $400k. No, it’s not very big at all, and utilities are not included. My client got another unit a few floors below and saved himself $50k.
