With an industrial chic vibe and a terrific location, the Wooster and Mercer Lofts is one of Washington Metro’s perennially popular condominium communities. Developed by Abdo and designed by Cunningham Quill Architects, the handsome brick buildings feature massive factory-style windows and repurposed 140 year-old bricks from the old Children’s Museum in DC, now used as interior accents. The complex stretches for two blocks along trendy Clarendon Boulevard, and down the side streets of N. Pierce and N. Queen.
Unit #M301 was temporarily taken off-market in October and was relisted in November for the same asking price of $1,250,000. The two-bedroom, two-bath corner residence with its high ceilings offers a spacious 1,829 square foot floorplan, with giant wraparound windows, overhead ductwork, lovely hardwood floors and lots of exposed brick accents. The chef-style kitchen has dark granite counters, maple cabinetry, a Wolf gas range and a Sub-Zero fridge. Each of the two full baths has honed marble twin-sink vanities, and the owner’s suite features a large frameless shower. The owner’s suite also has a custom closet organizer system. A side-by-side front-loading washer and dryer is nicely tucked away in a hallway closet. One garage parking space is included.
Unit #W203 was also recently relisted, this time with a price cut from $735,000 down to $659,000. The result was an accepted agreement, although it comes with contingencies and an Active under Contract status which means that it can still be shown for backup offers. The one-bedroom, one-bath apartment has a spacious and open 900 square foot layout with oversized windows and Western exposures, allowing for loads of natural light. Brazilian cherry hardwood floors run throughout, with exposed ductwork lending additional character. The open living and dining area includes a gourmet kitchen with granite counters, island and sideboard, plus Wolf and Sub-Zero stainless steel appliances. A large glass door and adjacent floor-to-ceiling windows adds to the bedroom’s open feeling.
Unit #M406 is an exclusive Life at the Top listing that entered the market in November and is already pending. The stunning two-bedroom, 2.5-bath loft penthouse was listed at $1,695,000, and enjoys 2,370 square feet of living space. There are bedroom suites at each level, and a massive two-story wall of windows that will take your breath away. Dramatic floating stairs lead to a spectacular loft overlooking the living area below, with bonus features including a wet bar and wine fridge, as well as a large and open den that’s great for working from home. Entries at each level provide easy elevator access, and two garage parking spaces are included. A closing is scheduled for early December.
Unit #W205 in the Wooster section closed in November for $1,220,000, after listing for $1,249,900. The attractive single-floor apartment has high ceilings, huge windows on two sides, and two bedrooms positioned at opposite corners for maximum privacy. The primary suite has a huge walk-in closet and a stunning en-suite bath. Cherry hardwood floors run throughout the living areas and bedrooms. The open concept kitchen has black granite counters and an island, Wolf appliances and a gigantic pantry. There’s also a walk-in laundry with side-by-side front-loading washer and dryer. Two tandem parking spaces are included.
Also closing in November was Unit #M303. This unique residence has a dramatic custom makeover from noted interior designer Barry Dixon, and sold for $1,025,000. The two-bedroom, two-bath layout provides 1,48 square feet of living space, with dark espresso finishes complemented by cherry hardwood floors, brick accents, strategically placed sliding brown drapes and full-height bookcases. A chef-inspired kitchen includes a Sub-Zero wine refrigerator that will accommodate approximately 150 bottles. The owner’s suite has floor-to-ceiling windows, built-ins, a walk-in closet and a beautiful bathroom with a twin-sink vanity, a wall-mounted television and a frameless Waterworks shower.
The Wooster and Mercer condominium community is smartly positioned along the trendy Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor. Although located in Rosslyn, it’s also close to the next-door Courthouse neighborhood. This allows for a highly walkable experience, with tons of great bars, restaurants, shops and entertainment, as well as two nearby Metro stations. Residents at Wooster and Mercer enjoy plenty of condo amenities, including a swimming pool, front desks and concierge, club room, fitness center, courtyards and a dog park.
