The Wooster and Mercer Lofts is one of the most popular condominium communities in the Washington Metro region. Located in Arlington’s Rosslyn neighborhood, the handsome buildings were developed by Abdo and designed by Cunningham Quill Architects, with a retro-chic look that evokes both old-school warehouses and modern flourishes. Inside, you’ll find soaring ceilings and sublime accents such as 140-year-old repurposed bricks from the original Children’s Museum in Washington, D.C.
There was only one new listing in July at Wooster & Mercer, and it’s already under contract. Unit #W409 is an exclusive Life At The Top property that listed for $995,000, receiving an accepted offer just three after coming to market. The two-level penthouse has a primary bedroom suite, 2.5 baths and a loft office/den that is perfect for working from home. The open Chef’s kitchen has Wolf, Sub-Zero and GE Monogram appliances. There are smart features throughout, such as WiFi-connected electric window shades, Phillips Hue colored LED lighting and a whole-home integrated Bose speaker system. The icing on the cake is the private treetop roof terrace running the entire length of the unit.
Still available after listing in June is Unit #M305. Priced at $900,000, the one-bedroom apartment has two full baths, as well as a large den that can 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, the 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.
Unit #M303 now has a price decrease. The 1,488 square foot residence with interior design from Barry Dixon is now listed at $1,190,000, representing an $80,000 cut. The apartment with its 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.
There were no closings in July. The most recent sale was in June, with Unit #M204. The two-bedroom, 2.5-bath loft residence with 2,209 square feet of living space and massive windows 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.
Residents at Wooster and Mercer enjoy a wide range of amenities, 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.
