Always popular and rarely available, residences at the Wooster and Mercer Lofts usually sell fast. Designed by Cunningham Quill Architects and delivered by Abdo Development in 2007, these retro-chic brick buildings in Arlington’s Rosslyn neighborhood have a modern warehouse vibe with sublime interior accents like the 140-year-old repurposed bricks from the original Children’s Museum in Washington, DC.
New to the market in June is Unit #M305 with an asking price of $900,000. The one-bedroom apartment has two full baths, as well as a large den that can also function as an additional bedroom. In fact, the den has a built-in workspace unit that includes a Murphy pull-down bed within the floor-to-ceiling cabinetry! With 1,365 square feet of living space, this impressive residence has hardwood floors with rich cherry hues, exposed overhead ductwork, massive windows and an open gourmet kitchen with dark granite counters and island, and upscale appliances. Custom built-ins enhance the living area with its treetop views. The primary bedroom suite has a walk-in closet, and an en-suite bath with a twin-sink granite-top vanity and a giant walk-in shower.
Still available is Unit #M303, a 1,488 square-foot residence with interior design from Barry Dixon. Offered at $1,270,000, the apartment with its unique dark espresso finishes has one bedroom, two full baths and a large den that has been reconfigured as a second bedroom with its own bath. A wall of giant windows at one end of the living area allows in plenty of natural light; a nice contrast to the dark wall and ceiling treatments. Cherry hardwood floors, full-height bookcases, exposed overhead ductwork, aged brick accents, globe pedant lights and strategically placed wall curtains, all add to the striking visuals. The open Chef’s kitchen is the perfect place to create culinary masterpieces, with a full-height wine fridge for your chilled libations. The master bath features twin vanities, a Waterworks frameless shower and a wall-mounted TV. All furnishings plus custom lighting throughout, are included!
There is one new closing to report. Unit #M204 is two-bedroom, 2.5-bath loft residence with 2,209 square feet of living space, soaring ceilings and two stories of giant windows. It was listed at $1,298,000 before selling for $1,265,000. Gleaming hardwood floors run throughout, with 20-foot ceilings, exposed ductwork, brick accents and long hanging lights adding to the overall ambience. 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.
Those lucky enough to land a condo at Wooster and Mercer will find a plethora of amenities to enjoy, including 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 tons of great shops, bars and restaurants within easy strolling distance. Also nearby are two Metro stations (Rosslyn and Courthouse), as well as Whole Foods and a Trader Joe’s.
