Background

Unseen from the listing photos, you’re sitting right on the intersection of Wisconsin Ave and Fulton St, on a corner lot.  I read the following on DCUM today:

We rented a short term apartment on Wisconsin Ave. during a renovation. It was so loud with police sirens, ambulances, fire trucks. None of us could sleep at first, but we eventually got used to it. I felt like I was living back in NYC.

Exterior – 7.0
Had enough going for it pre-renovation that a more subtle update probably could’ve worked.  However, the full-on facelift makes it appear more fitting for the pricetag, and is more aligned with modern trends.  It’s a sharp look now, but definitely dates the renovation.  

Interior – 5.9
Goes a step too far with the in-your-face lights, railings, etc.  This creates somewhat of an identity, but largely comes off as an attempt to convince you this is a $3m home.  It’s at its best in the basement, where you don’t see any of this, and get the greatest sense of openness/refuge from the city.  

Kitchen – 4.4
Uncomfortable in multiple ways: It’s isolated, tight, and has a busy intersection/sidewalk right outside the window.  None of this is helped by an uninspiring color scheme and awkwardly thin glass cabinets.  

Bathrooms – 5.5
As evidenced by this photo of a parked truck and dude looking right into the window, the primary’s another instance of uncomfortable placement.  Besides maybe here, I would’ve preferred the showers, floors, and overall look of any of the secondaries as the owner.

Amenities – 3.7
Loud and hectic setting, a shopping center immediately to the back, and not much space between it and the house next door.  The yard offers little privacy, but there’s some nice potential to grill out/throw some summer get togethers with the elevated patio space.

Overall – 5.3

    Unfortunate loss of trees!

    It’s too bad they lost so much of the greenery in the yard during reno as I think that helped seclude it from the streets. I mostly enjoyed the interior besides the bathrooms…it gave too much of a hotel vibe versus a home from the appliances and tiles they selected. The garage is likely a huge plus! I don’t know comps in this neighborhood, but I’m curious if it’s sitting because the price is too high for the neighborhood (staging was done well for this home but I’m unsure if the true value is there without??).

    I need more from the exterior. The inside is def the nicest part of the house and the location is great. But it doesn’t do “it” for me for that price.
