One of the most iconic complexes in Washington is home to May’s highest priced new listing. The Watergate in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood may be synonymous with a dark chapter in American politics but it’s also a sprawling 10-acre community along the Potomac River offering spacious luxury cooperatives and full service amenities. With an asking price of $4,395,000, Unit #404/405 merges two residences into one supersized apartment with three bedrooms, 3.5 baths and 3,960 square feet of living space. Redesigned by Outerbridge Horsey Associates, this beautiful home features a dramatic circular entry, a wide gallery and octagonal hall, a library, master suite, a kitchen to die for and a 200 square foot balcony offering incredible views of the river, three bridges, the Georgetown Waterfront and Kennedy Center!
Coming in second is Unit #2 at The Logan in Logan Circle. The one-of-a-kind residence was listed at $3,250,000 but went under contract after just four days on market. With three bedrooms and 3.5 baths, this two-level condo is part of a completely restored and modernized Victorian building, and offers 3,460 square feet of elegant living space. Among the many features are an incredible white-on-white kitchen with marble counters and stainless steel appliances recessed into a wall of custom cabinetry, as well as a matching master bath.
Third place goes to Unit #PH2B at the Ritz-Carlton West End in the West End neighborhood. The three-level penthouse with three bedrooms, 2.5 baths and 3,146 square feet of living space listed at $3,250,000 and went under contract the same day, ultimately closing at full price later in the month. The new lucky owners will enjoy multiple private outdoor spaces, two fireplaces, a beautiful chef’s kitchen and more.
Unit #215 at Shoreham West in Woodley Park listed at $2,800,000 in May. The two-bedroom, 2.5 bath cooperative with a 2,850 square foot layout offers a very open and inviting floorplan with large living spaces flowing into one another. Honey toned hardwood floors, tray ceilings, a contemporary kitchen, a study and a large treetop balcony add to the considerable attraction for this building listed in James Goode’s Best Addresses.
In fifth place is Unit #103 at Alexander Hall in Georgetown. Priced at $2,199,000, the tri-level residence with three bedrooms, 2.5 baths and 2,640 square feet of living space is a rare availability in a historic 1909 building that was transformed into a boutique three-unit condominium. Sunlight abounds throughout with pale wide-plank floors, white-on-white motifs and marble counters. A big private brick patio adds another great touch. Sixth place goes to Unit #4 at The Southerland in Dupont Circle. The penthouse loft with three bedrooms and three baths, occupies the top two levels of a fully renovated row house building. With 2,315 square feet of living space and three-bedroom, this unique residence with its opened-up ceilings and stunning modern design feels straight out of an architectural magazine. Priced at $2,195,000, the listing is already under contract.
