Combining a retro-style industrial chic vibe with modern loft living, The Wooster and Mercer is one of Washington Metro’s most in-demand condo communities. Located in Arlington’s Rosslyn neighborhood, the brick warehouse-style residences were designed by Cunningham Quill Architects and delivered by Abdo Development in 2007. With sublime interior touches such as 140 year-old brick accents from the original Children’s Museum in Washington, DC, the trendy loft community rarely has active listings. However, there is one unit completely free and clear as of this writing—see below for details!
Unit #M303 is currently offered at $1,270,000. The 1,488 square foot residence sports a unique look courtesy of designer Barry Dixon. Dark espresso wall and ceiling finishes in the living areas offer a subtle contrast to the cherry hardwood floors, wooden cabinets and aged brick accents. Exposed ductwork runs overhead, along with giant windows that invite the outside in. There’s one bedroom plus a large den that is currently set up as a second bedroom with its own bath. The master bath features twin vanities, a Waterworks frameless shower and a wall-mounted TV. The open Chef’s kitchen is the perfect place to create culinary masterpieces, with a full-height wine fridge for your chilled libations. All furnishings plus custom lighting throughout, are included!
Unit #M204 came to market in April and is now in Active Under Contract status, meaning it’s pending with contingencies and can still be shown for backup offers. The two-bedroom, 2.5-bath loft residence had been reduced from $1,365,000 down to $1,298,000 shortly before going under contract. A 2,209 square foot layout features gorgeous wood floors, soaring ceilings and two stories of giant windows. Double-doors open to an amazing fenced patio with a drip irrigation system. The chef’s kitchen has all the bells and whistles, including Wolf and Jenn Air appliances. There’s a sitting area with wet bar on the first floor, and iron floating stairs leading ups to the sleeping quarters.
There were no closings in May, nor were there any in April. Such is the continuing story of Wooster and Mercer’s popularity. Owners seem determined to hang onto their cool loft condos! The most recent sale came in March when Unit #W411 settled at $815,000. The 1,060 square foot penthouse has one bedroom and one bath with 20-foot ceilings and two-story windows that allow natural light to bathe the hardwood floors in a warm glow. Overhead ductwork and long hanging lights add to the ambience. The open kitchen has a Wolf range and a custom built-in Sub-Zero fridge. Industrial-style metal stairs ascend to a bonus loft. A private rooftop terrace tops things off.
Among other recent sales is Unit #W101 which listed on February 8 of this year for $1,250,000 and closed on the same day for $6K over asking! The 1,537 square foot corner condo with two bedrooms and two baths has an open gourmet kitchen with a Wolf range, Sub-Zero fridge, wine cooler and black granite counters. Giant windows, cherry-hued hardwood floors and a master suite balcony overlooking the pool are among the other features. The bidding and same-day close is a good example of just how in-demand these units are.
There’s no lack of amenities at Wooster and Mercer, with front desk and concierge, a swimming pool and sun deck, a fitness center, a club room and a dog park. The handsome red brick buildings extend along trendy Clarendon Boulevard and down two side streets, with expansive lush green lawns adding to the community feel. Shops, bars and restaurants are all nearby, as are two Metro stations (Rosslyn and Courthouse). Nearby grocery options include Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and a farmers’ market.
