Our Take: For once, the BrokerBabble is for real: This really is "one of the most beautiful blocks in the city." As with living on Delancey Street, aesthetic fatigue is an unlikely side effect. These homes don't got out of style. We love the oddly shaped spaces in this condo, as well as the hardwood floors.

The Pitch: "Spread out in this expansive Bella Vista townhouse where room proportions are unlike most homes in the area. Vestibule entry leads to wide open living and dining areas that are finished with beautiful moldings and hard wood floors. A newer kitchen is well designed, features charming windows looking onto patio, handsome appliances and generous cabinets. Second floor features a private deck, two spacious bedrooms and a roomy bath. The third floor master suite is just what you want' walk-in closets and a gorgeous spa-like bathroom. Family room, powder room, laundry and storage in basement add to the overall spacious feeling this house provides. Walk to Shot-Tower Coffee House, Cochon, Ulivo, The Mildred, Blue Belly BBQ, the Italian Market and more! You'll never go hungry in this spot!"

Open House: Sunday, December 9, noon-1pm

Our Take: Bella Vista is a great neighborhood, and this home has terrific schools nearby. It's cute that the listing includes photos of neighborhood restaurants, but the house itself is somewhat dull. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
