January ushered in a strong start to the year for luxury condo and co-op sales in the Washington, DC area. Several of highest-priced sales also took additional honors in the price per square foot category. Topping the highest priced sales is Unit #PH1C at the Ritz-Carlton Georgetown. The two-bedroom, 3.5-bath penthouse sold for $5,850,000 after listing for $5,950,000. The spacious 4,638 layout also equals $1,261.32 per sq. ft. for third place in that monthly highlight. Features include a wood-paneled library, a huge gourmet kitchen with custom wood and glass cabinetry, and a private balcony with unobstructed views of the Potomac River. The second-highest sale along with the second-highest price per sq. ft. goes to Unit #1105/06 at the iconic Watergate in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood. With 3,000 sq. ft. of living space, the three-bedroom, 2.5-bath apartment received a complete bare slab renovation with a design from Studio 3877. Gleaming maple hardwoods and a showcase kitchen are part of the allure for the $4 million transaction ($1,333.33 per sq. ft.) but the expansive balcony boasting exquisite views of the Potomac River and the entire Georgetown waterfront is the real topping on the cake.
