    I really like the view and location of this place.

    Beautiful open space! Love the bedroom and hallways

    This is in a great location and what a view! It’s a perfect place for a young couple. I always kick myself for not considering the Mt Pleasant area when we were looking. It’s so close to everything, but there are so many secluded streets.

    Looks very nice, but I think the flaw (there’s always one as a realtor once told me) is that the living room area may be a bit small.

      It looks pretty big to me. That is huge carpet in there.

    I love this part of Mount Pleasant…feels completely removed from the hustle of the city.

    What does GDoN mean????

    No dinning table?

    Love this street — quiet and close to Rock Creek Park, but an easy walk or bus ride to Mt P/Columbia Heights/AdMo. Good layout and storage space, too.

  • Mike

    Am I the only one who thinks this is too high? It’s $667/sf. and is not all that close to a metro. Nice place and in a cute area, but it seems overpriced. Though prior commentators seem to like it at this price, so who knows.

  • ColHeist

    Where are you supposed to eat? It looks like the addition of a dining table would make the main living space rather tight. Otherwise a beautiful place and great location.

      No room for a dining table, and the storage unit on the balcony might signal a lack of storage. Wonder about the floor plan, since there is a window in the closet.

        Good points on all three counts.

    Beautiful home in a great neighborhood. Quiet, green, and close to all the fun stuff.

    Lovely, warm home! Went to a party here and it was cozy. Perfect for first time homeowners!

    Way too high a price. I looked at the atrociously small living room and thought, if forced to live here, I’d put a dining table where that sofa is and make this a dining room, and make the second bedroom into a living room….only to see that there is no second bedroom! A terribly tiny place for a one-bedroom. Which doesn’t mean that someone wouldn’t want to live there, but not at anywhere near that price. For that, you can get a condo in an older building with a living room, a dining area or small dining room, and a bedroom, and maybe even a small office area somewhere. This is what I hate about so much new construction condos v. condos in old buildings- there’s just no way to live in these new places except as sort of like in a hotel room – which this reminds me of – a hotel suite.

    am I the only one thinking all the positive comments on this are written by the same person? The phrasing seems very similar.

    • FridayGirl

      Lol, yes. I agree.

      • exiledinarlington

        One of the comments says positive things about the layout and storage, which I don’t think you can really get from the pictures in the ad. And so many of the positive comments read like they were extracted from a real estate ad.

        Y’know – Short statements! Many with exclamation points! Other statements have periods. Great astroturfing!

    • textdoc

      I too thought there was a suspicious volume of upbeat comments from anonymous (or non-regular) users.

    • Idontgetit

      Yeah its so much that I’m tempted to troll here and say stuff like “I went to party there once and even with just a handful of people there it felt uncomfortable and was so crowded that someone fell off the balcony.

      But I’m above stuff like that.

    Love the view and location! The built in shelving also adds a lot of character. I want this home!
