Market Leaders | Highest Price New Listings | August 2021

Summer is coming to a close in Washington but the real estate market continues to cook. Topping the list of highest priced new offerings in August is Unit #1105/6 at the iconic Watergate in Foggy Bottom. The 3,000 square foot residence already has a price decrease from $5,295,000 down to $4,495,000. The ultra-spacious three-bedroom, 2.5-bath apartment has been remodeled from the studs out by the award-winning architects at Studio 3877 and BOWA builders. Features include two offices, an incredible chef’s kitchen, laundry room, a mudroom with service entrance, and a giant wraparound private terrace with the most stunning views of the Potomac River imaginable! Second place goes to Unit #73 at the modernistic Westlight in the West End neighborhood. Offered at $3,995,000, the 2,857 sq. ft. flat has three bedrooms and 3.5 baths, with huge uninterrupted window walls spanning the open living area. Every bit is clean, cultivated and stylish. It’s back to the Watergate for third place, with Unit #502 featuring four bedrooms, 3.5 baths and 3,678 square feet of living space for $3,799,900. The extra-large layout is the result of combining two apartments through a careful and thoughtful design by architect Robert Gurney. Full-height sections of oak wood-paneling in both natural and white finishes create an ambience that is both subtle and memorable. A huge wraparound terrace offers treetop views of the river. The back-and-forth competition resumes with Unit #23 at the Westlight taking fourth place honors. Listed at $3,615,000, the 3,031 square foot designer model has already gone under contract. There are three bedrooms, a library and three full baths with the palest of pale wood floors, an open white-on-white Euro-style kitchen, and massive window walls. Unit #903 at Somerset House in Chevy Chase takes fifth place with a $2,999,990 price tag. The three-bedroom, 2.5-bath upper floor residence has both herringbone hardwoods and plush carpet, with an extra-large gourmet kitchen and lavish spa baths. The gated country club-style Parc Somerset community covers 17 acres of lush, manicured grounds. Sixth place goes to Unit #2 at MuSoLit Residences in Logan Circle. The four-bedroom townhouse with 3,070 sq. ft. of living space has four full and two half baths, and occupies the top two stories of a historic row house that was originally built in the 1891 with a design from noted DC architect Thomas Franklin Schneider. It has now been transformed into delightful combination of traditional and modern, and is already under contract.
