Biggest drawback: The bedroom seems pretty cramped and might not fit much besides a full- or queen-size bed and side table. Though the listing claims to have a large bathroom, there are no photos included, so you’ll have to see for yourself. Plus, there’s no laundry in the building. Still, this cute 1-bedroom provides the chance to live affordably in a classic, scenic neighborhood.
