Asking price $SlightlymorethanToomuch,000, on the market since the late summer 2006. Brokers: NONE! Through the owner! Sponsored Unit!

The new owner reportedly will be converting the "bedroom" into a loft and office space/studio/TV room, installing a real fridge, and adding a bar to the kitchen. There's sure to be a renoblog of it. Meanwhile, just like everyone else in the neighborhood, he's on a quest for a good, decently-priced restaurant in the immediate area (Jack The Horse: very tasty, will return, but holy crap was it expensive).
