Your Next Place

I'll admit, I'm kind of an "old things" snob - I only wear vintage clothes, won't drink bourbon unless it's at least 12 years old, and don't like any movie made after about 1978.  But one new thing I really love is a new condo, especially when they're like this.  I mean, look at it!  It would be like living inside an iPhone.  What snob could resist that?

This two-level Logan Circle condo in the Metropole features a wide-open floor plan, high ceilings, and totally unique finishes.  The kitchen gets a ton of light from the massive wall of windows; there's also exposed ductwork, for that frisson of rough industrial edges, but also Bosch appliances and custom cabinets for that frisson of, well, living in a million dollar condo.  Both good frissons.

Upstairs are the fine, spacious bedrooms, and there are three, yes three, very fine bathrooms.  As with the rest of the house, the utmost care has been given to every detail - the cabinets, the towel racks, the light fixtures, even the shower curtain rods are cool.  This is a condo that's guaranteed to make all your friends feel inferior and lame when they visit, which in my mind is the real point of home ownership.

And of course, the location.  Everything you could possibly want is within a block; a gym, a salon, restaurants, half a dozen bars, Whole Foods.  The condo comes with a parking space, but only a very bad person would live here and still insist on driving.  (Just kidding, when I visit my parents in Iowa, I drive their car twenty feet down the driveway to get the mail.)
