For the second month in a row, the highest sales price for a condominium in the DC area goes to Somerset House in Friendship Heights. This time, it’s Unit #702, a three-bedroom, 3.5-bath residence with 3,399 square feet of living space. Featured in Architectural Digest, the home has a series of memorable ceiling patterns including honeycomb beams, and several variations of oval and hexagonal tray shapes. Listed for $3,195,000, the exquisitely appointed apartment closed at $3,050,000. Other features include quarter-sewn wood floors with inlays and two private balconies. Somerset House is part of the exclusive 17-acre gated Parc Somerset community, providing every country club-style amenity imaginable. The second-highest sales price was also in the Friendship Heights neighborhood (often associated with next-door Chevy Chase). Unit #701 at the aptly named Chase Point listed for $1,595,000 and sold for full price. With two bedroom suites, 2.5 baths, a family room, giant windows, hardwood floors and a spacious 1,997 square foot layout, the apartment merges contemporary style with comfort.
Third place goes to Wooster and Mercer in Rosslyn. This popular condo community on Clarendon Boulevard rarely has active listings. Unit #M601 was one of the exceptions, selling for $1,530,000. The loft residence with two bedrooms and two baths has a 1,855 square foot layout and outrageously high ceilings with two stories of giant factory-style windows. The open gourmet kitchen has all the Wooster and Mercer bells and whistles including 140 year-old brick accents in the living area that were repurposed from the old Children’s Museum in DC. A private rooftop terrace tops things off. Fourth place belongs to Unit #1121 at the super modern and luxurious VIO which is perched on top of the marina at District Wharf in the redeveloped Southwest Waterfront. The three-bedroom, two-bath apartment with giant windows and a sublime 1,400 square foot floorplan sold for $1.5 million. It’s also the month’s highest price per square foot sale at $1,071.43. District Wharf is Washington’s new waterfront community and destination place with an incredible array of shops, restaurants, live entertainment and boat slips.
In fifth place is Unit #802 at Lionsgate in Bethesda, Maryland. The apartment with its hardwood floors, oversized kitchen, two bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a den and 1,960 square feet of interior space, was offered at $1,349,900 before selling for $1,300,000. Closing out the highest sales price category is Unit 301 at Hampden Row in Bethesda. The stylish two-bedroom, 2.5-bath condo has dark wood floors, a completely open white-on-white kitchen with panelized stainless steel appliances, a bonus den and a private balcony. The 1,780 square foot residence listed for $1,335,000 and closed at $1,295,000. The building is close to all the great Wisconsin Avenue shops and restaurants.
