Unit #PH18B has three bedroom, 3.5 baths, a cherry paneled library and a show-stopper gourmet kitchen and breakfast room designed by Jennifer Gilmore. With a sales price of $3,375,000, this incredible residence with gleaming hardwood floors, curved window walls and a 900 square foot private roof terrace, was one of five closings at Somerset House for the month. The condos are set within the exclusive 17-acre Parc Somerset community, with an incredible array of amenities including a three-story clubhouse. Second place goes to Unit #31 at Westlight in the West End neighborhood. The fabulously modern three-bedroom, three-bath apartment with 2,385 square feet of space sold for $2,625,000; it also nabbed third-place honors in the size ratio category at $1,100.63.

In third place is Unit #1012 at CityCenterDC in Mount Vernon Triangle. The two-bedroom, two-bath apartment came to market on June 8 at $2,695,000, immediately received an accepted offer, and closed the very same day for $2,622,000.
