that fireplace looks like a dead snow leopard. 

for townhome layouts, this one doesn't actually suck. having the living/dining/kitchen on the first floor makes so much sense compared to having 1 random BR on the first floor, then LR/DR/K on the second floor, followed by the 3rd floor with the main BR, and an 3rd BR. it needs a larger footprint for the common areas to be on the first floor with a garage and not feel cramped, which is probably why they are a premium price.

Certainly my situation is not everyone's situation, but this townhome layout works perfectly for me. I'm able to rent out the first-floor bedroom, my roommate and I have privacy being separated by a floor, but can congregate in the middle when we're feeling social.

I like the floor plan, but I think the exterior would look much better styled like a brownstone LIKE ITS NEIGHBOR 

There was a development a block away that advertised “first floor living” and “large yards” that were also around $700k before COVID, but they were also nicer houses

Does this look cheaply built? I can’t imagine spending 1.1 mil on this. Am I in the minority or is this nice?

Yeah, it's pretty terrible. Not sure I can remember a FAR like this. 4600 sq ft on a 1,788 sq ft lot!
