The Wooster and Mercer Lofts in Arlington’s Rosslyn neighborhood, have been high on the list of in-demand condominiums ever since their completion in 2007. Developed by Abdo and designed by Cunningham Quill Architects, the brick buildings exude an old-school warehouse vibe while featuring all the modern bells and whistles. Among the many appealing interior touches are soaring ceilings and 140 year-old brick accents from the original Children’s Museum in Washington, DC. The downside for hopeful buyers is the chronic lack of new listings. Condo owners just don’t want to leave!
As proof of Wooster and Mercer’s enduring popularity, there is just one active listing at the moment. Listed at $839,000, Unit #W411 is a one-bedroom, one-bath penthouse with 1,060 square feet of interior space. Soaring 20-foot ceilings and two-story windows on the south side allow natural light to bathe hardwood floors in a warm glow. Exposed overhead ductwork and hanging old school lights add to the ambience. The open kitchen has a Wolfe range and a custom built-in Sub-Zero fridge. The bedroom is at the main level, with a walk-in closet, a nicely appointed bath and a stacked washer and dryer. Industrial-style stairs winds up to a bonus loft with pendant lighting and an overhead fan. A private 200 square foot rooftop terrace is the topping on the cake!
Unit #M601 is now in Active under Contract status. This means that the listing is pending with contingencies but can still be shown for backup offers. Priced at $1,699,500, the two-story loft has two bedrooms, two baths and a spacious 1,855 square foot layout. A large open living area soars to incredible heights with giant factory style windows wrapping around the sides. A large open gourmet kitchen features a center island, a six-burner Thermador range, GE wine fridge, built-in Miele espresso maker and microwave. You’ll find sleeping quarters upstairs, with a large owner’s suite with a sitting area and custom glossy white wardrobe running the length of one wall. A private rooftop terrace caps things off!
There was one sale in January. Unit #M203 came to market in December, receiving an accepted offer in just 10 days. The apartment subsequently closed at the full asking price of $1,125,000. The impressive main level residence has a walk-out private patio surrounded by greenery and enhanced with a handsome stone wall. Cherry floors run throughout, including an open living area with overhead ductwork and a gourmet kitchen with granite counters, a Wolfe gas range and a recessed Sub-Zero fridge. An owner’s suite features a large walk-in closet with organizers and a beautiful en-suite bath with twin sink vanity and frameless shower. A large den can serve as a work space or a second bedroom. There’s also a second full bath.
The community amenities at Wooster and Mercer are right in line with the stunning interiors. There’s a swimming pool, fitness center, fully staffed front desk and concierge service, a club room and a dog park. While the handsome red brick buildings are within the Rosslyn bounds, they are also close to the next-door Courthouse neighborhood. The result is a plethora of shops, bars, restaurants and entertainment along Clarendon Boulevard. Nearby grocery options include Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and a farmers’ market. The Metro station is within easy walking distance.
