Washington Metro’s red-hot real estate market continued to impress in May with some very pricy new condominium listings. Topping the tally is Unit #PH 8H at sought-after 3303 Water Street in Georgetown. The 2,900 square foot penthouse is offered at $7 million. That places the three-bedroom, three-bath apartment in the same rarified territory as some of the region’s most lavish estates. Among the features are a library/den, a double-sided fireplace and white marble bathrooms. But it’s the 1,400 square foot private terrace that really tops the cake, with unsurpassed point-blank views down the Potomac River and across to Virginia. You’ll even get your own three-hole putting green! Coming in second is another very impressive Georgetown residence. Unit #3-W at 1055 High is priced at $4,695,000 and comes with three bedrooms, a den, 3.5 baths and a 3,538 square foot layout that spans half the building’s third floor. Massive triple-pane windows on three sides face north, west and south. The modern Boffi kitchen could easily grace the cover of a magazine and the supersized balcony is the perfect place to dine al fresco.
In third place is Unit #2001 at Turnberry Tower in Arlington’s Rosslyn waterfront. Listed at $3.5 million, the super spacious 4,447 square foot flat is already in Active Under Contract status, meaning it’s pending with contingencies. Step out from the direct access elevator and into a contemporary showcase with two bedrooms, an office/den, 4.5 baths, two wraparound balconies and walls of giant floor-to-ceiling windows. Next up is Unit #2507 at The Verse, a new luxury building in Tysons Corner. Listed at $2,950,000, the stunning contemporary penthouse has two bedrooms, a large den, 2.5 baths and a 900-foot private deck in the sky, overlooking the Virginia vista. The open Euro-style kitchen has upscale appliances recessed into custom wood grain cabinetry that matches built-ins in the den.
In fifth place is Unit #605 at The Carleton of Chevy Chase. Completely renovated with 3,657 square feet of superbly finished living space, the apartment is priced at $2,649,000 and has four bedrooms, including two master suites, and 4.5 baths. A modern showcase kitchen is completely open to the living and dining areas, and features panelized appliances and a waterfall island. Cook while your friends watch and converse, and then take the food creations out to the balcony! Our final highest-priced new listing for May is Unit #810 at CityCenterDC in the fabulous Mount Vernon Triangle. The 1,389 square foot corner penthouse is available for $2,500,000 and has two bedrooms, 2.5 baths and massive floor-to-ceiling window walls wrapping around the perimeter. A stylish Foster + Partners open kitchen has appliances inset into Molteni/Dada Italian cabinetry. But the true icing on the cake is the 1,009 square foot multilevel private terrace with wooden floors and extensive landscaping.
