The two-bedroom condo in the South Slope offers floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room and master bedroom, a deeded parking space and low monthly charges. It’s in the Vue, the 10-story condo building at 162 16th Street, which was completed in 2008.
Neighbors and longtime readers may recall that the place didn’t win any popularity prizes in its early days, with a slew of construction issues including illegal demolition and unpermitted asbestos abatement, gripes about its size being out of scale with the neighborhood and subsequent complaints from owners about rainwater seeping through the facade.
That aside, the building is there to stay and it’s a reasonably nice unit. There are cherry floors, a kitchen with a white wraparound counter/breakfast bar, and a glass wall in the living room that makes for a bright space — even if the view is nothing to write home about.
The second bedroom is small and lacks a closet, but the master is decent sized, with the same glass wall plus a second exposure, and a walk-in closet.
There’s an in-unit washer and dryer, and two full baths. And then there’s the aforementioned deeded parking space, a major plus if you’re a car owner.
There’s also a storage unit, and the building’s got a gym and a shared garden. Common charges and taxes come to a low $482, though there’s an assessment in place that runs another $326 a month.
Listed by Jesse Temple and Scott Morrow of Halstead, the unit — which is showing at an open house Sunday — is asking $950,000. Not what you’d call cheap for a 913-square-foot place, but it doesn’t seem out of line with what comparable places in the building have fetched. What do you think?
