    I love having a large bathroom - it's a rare indulgence given typical apartment layouts in NYC.

    I like the bedroom > walk-in > bathroom configuration.

    Nice apartment. Baller because it's in Tokyo.

    I'm not sure 'walk-in closet' is an accurate description. Some Japanese guy probably misunderstood when making the floor plan. Rather it's more like a short hallway with two large floor to ceiling closets on each side - there aren't any clothes hanging out in the open. And, since the closet doors are white, one might not even realize they are there. All one sees is a short hallway between the master bedroom and master bathroom.

    Oh forget it then - not as cool. I've visited apartments with a walk-in (or walk-thru) closet with everything in the open, wooden shelves, sometimes a little bench to put on shoes. That was pretty cool.

    I don't have a large bathroom but I feel that way about my bedroom. Fits a king size bed and has about 6 feet to both sides of it. The other places I looked at I couldn't fit my bed in.

    Me too. It allows everyone to have space during the AM rush.

    My gf's bedroom/closet/bathroom is set up like that. I like it too.

    Not sure the exact size because I don't know how many sq. feet in a '94 Cutlass.

    2 BR, 86 square metres/925 square foot (thank you google).

    I just moved in here, and I love my place.

    Basically it's great because it has a really large living room and a really large master bedroom, and a tiny ass second bedroom.

    Since I live alone, this means I have a real lot of usable space for myself, since I pretty much never set foot in bedroom 2 anyhow.

    It's a nice format, but you've got to make sure that either the bathroom has plenty of ventilation, or that you close the bathroom door whilst you're taking a shower (and immediately afterwards). Otherwise, the steam comes out of the bathroom, into your walk-in robe, and your clothes get mouldy.

    Just moved to Washington D.C.

    My place is ~1500 sq ft, top floor of a four floor building. Two story unit with 2/2 on first floor and a quasi-loft (no overlook to first floor) on the second floor. First floor balcony is about 100 sq ft, second floor balcony is edging on ~1000 sq ft. Upstairs is 9 floor to ceiling windows on three sides. Living room is ridiculous, about 40 x 14. Will post up some pics later. Real wood everywhere except the 2 bedrooms, halogen high hats all over as well. First floor is 10' ceilings and second is ~8'.

    We have views of the Washington monument from each and most of the city from the second level balcony.

    All for the low low price of $3,000/month [​IMG]

    Are you doing this spiel in Eric Cartman's voice?

    For that price it must have come with some brownfield tax credits.

    Why, are you offended? I'm actually curious to see what the apartment looks like.

    I knew at one point because I had to pay to have every one of them waterproofed. [​IMG]
