Harbortown has a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom townhouse for rent that goes about six toes over the line into opulence—not necessarily a good thing. The townhouse, a corner unit by the complex's pool, features an ultramodern kitchen. The appliances—massive steel fridge in particular—are top-of-the-line. The newly remodeled space leaves much to be desired in terms of warmth and homeyness. The unit feels a little like the inside of a granite quarry, given the vast amounts of stone everywhere. The kitchen has an oversized granite bar. The counters? Granite. The living room ceiling features a shining ribbon of black stone that somehow makes the massive television over the fireplace seem (slightly) less garish in comparison.
The floors on the main level are hard-looking ceramic tile, from the kitchen to the (black) bathroom. The interior entryways have strange, rippled cutouts, and there's a glass doodad on the stair that makes no sense whatsoever. The unit has every modern convenience, true, but may take modern to places best left in the hands of suburban mid-range restaurants. The stone tiling on the breakfast bar, complete with glowing aqua-colored undermounted lights, is especially hard to look at. While the listing describes this place as "3 stories of breathtaking finishes," the master bath with its cheap-looking cabinets and ho-hum standard tub do not impress.
The complex itself offers tons of great amenities, including an outdoor pool, tennis courts, and access to the river walk. The pretty exteriors lead to an elegant lobby whose decor highlights the waterfront theme. For $2200 a month, you also get dedicated parking and over 1600 square feet of living space. It's a jillion percent better than living in a van down by the river, no matter how you feel about surrounding yourself with stone, ceramic tile and aqua accent lighting.
