The priciest new listing in Washington Metro during August is more like a mansion than a condo. Unit #1403 at the prestigious gated Somerset House community in Friendship Heights is priced at $6,700,000! With 3-bedrooms and 4.5-baths, the 5,086 square foot apartment sports a private elevator, a wood-paneled library, fireplace, formal dining room, exercise room and a family room that is plumbed for a fifth full bath. Also worth noting is the gorgeous kitchen, extraordinary millwork, two covered balconies and a master bedroom suite with two full baths and two walk-in closets. The second highest listing is also at Somerset House. Unit #1002 is offered at $3,395,000 with 3-bedrooms, 3.5-baths and 3,399 square feet of living space. The third bedroom is currently configured as a library and there is also a formal dining room, a family room off the gourmet kitchen, fireplace, giant wraparound deck, a master bedroom suite and a guest bedroom suite.
Third place goes to Unit #2 at The Caroline in Logan Circle. The beautifully restored and renovated 3-bedtoom, 2.5-bath duplex penthouse is part of a recent boutique project from MTG Design Group comprised of three connected row homes. With an asking price of $2,195,000, the residence offers 2,475 square feet of living space with herringbone floors, marble baths, a modern open kitchen, a balcony and a private roof deck. Next up is an incredible three-story residence at the historic Bell Tower at Stanton Park on Capitol Hill. The former church with its rich Romanesque Revival design was recently converted to six luxury condominium units. Unit #6 is listed at $1,980,000 and has exclusive access to a winding spiral church staircase leading to the bell tower itself. This unique home with its private elevator melds modern design with numerous original architectural details and should be seen to be appreciated.
The fifth-highest priced listing is already pending—Unit #126 at Quarry Springs in Bethesda had a $1,850,000 price tag and went under contract in just one day! The 3-bedroom, 3-bath apartment has 3,405 square feet of living space with a private elevator, wide-plank floors, a modern country kitchen, marble baths and a large private terrace. Our final entry is Unit #801 at The Shaw in the neighborhood of the same name. This new construction penthouse has 2-bedrooms, 2.5-baths and 1,354 square feet of living space which does not include three private terraces! From the incredibly chic kitchen to stunning skyline vistas, this is modern urban living at its best.
