I currently live within 5-10 minutes walking distance to work, which is awesome... but due to some issues with the current apartment that I won't go into, we've decided to move when our lease expires the end of this month. Our apartment hunt was super short... we only went to see one place, immediately fell in love, and officially signed our lease today!
It's a brand-new small building of loft-style units, literally across the street from our favorite restaurants and Asian market (and hair salon too!). It's a 1 bedroom + loft/den with 2 baths, and the rent is about the same as what we're currently paying now (which is outrageously expensive in any other city than LA/NY).
Here's the building exterior:
And of course the must-have in unit washer/dryer:
I even like the cute little courtyard:
Since it's brand-new and therefore unoccuppied, we got our keys today and can start moving in even though our lease doesn't start until June... I'm so excited!
