I fail to see the distinction? It's in the Quad Lofts building, on Brant just north of King. And yeah, that is a gas stove.

A condo, by my definition at least, started its life as a condo as part of a development project, and you can buy one instead of just renting one, and it tends to be in a "condo building" with all the associated s

The reason I asked is that I've never seen gas stoves in any large condo buildings, even the luxury ones. They always have electric, which is of huge annoyance to me since I want gas but I also want to live in a place with concrete floors and walls so that I don't have to worry about pissing off everyone above, below, and beside me if I decide to watch a movie at night. In one of my old apartments I had the cops called on me because of that, and it pissed me right off because I couldn't watch movies at a decent volume after 10 or 11pm.

Anyway, I've always assumed they went with electric to keep the building insurance fees down. Having a gas stove is a really big plus for me and I was surprised to see one in a condo that looks like a new development.

In that case, yes, it's a condo. Built in 2006 as a development project. Guess I got lucky.

Some very cool homes. I like Douglas' place alot. Very warm and inviting and looks like you would find something new and unusual every day.

Still at least 2 more years before I buy a place. Plan is to find a nice tudor style home in PA or a quiet section of west jersey to start a family.

truthfully I would be happy with anything thats secluded and has a large workshop/garage.

For now I have a very quiet one bedroom in little ferry overlooking the river. Ducks and geese are my nearest neighbors. Has big windows which unfortunately face east so by 7am it's bright as fuck and I am up by 8 everyday.

Weird that your kind of taste is rare enough for me to 'link' a house to you.

Word son.








Word.

Look behind me, built in 2007.

Yeah, and it's huge. Maybe the largest Johnson residence? I wish it was open to the public.
post #717 of 1906
I don't like that Johnson house at all. Some of the interiors are nice but overall it's quite tacky.

massive and elaborate, yes, but I think this was the point. I'm reserved about calling it tacky, I'm not sure how to do a 12,000 square foot home and NOT be tacky.



That dining room is particularly stunning. You get the sense that it's in a big, tall room, but the "canope" of sorts molds the room into a different layer of space ... a space within a space. And it just looks damn cool with those skinny pillars.

You say elaborate, I say tacky... The whole arch motif repeated ad nauseum is tacky IMO, which is probably why LK likes it to begin with. It would be even if the house was 2,000 sq ft.

Quite ugly in places but I would live in it in a heartbeat. Interior details are mind blowing.
