The top sales price in July was accompanied by two additional honors. Unit #301 at Somerset House in Chevy Chase sold for $3,600,000 which is impressive enough on its own. But that closing figure was $100,000 over the original asking price of $3.5 million, making it the fourth-highest list to sales ratio at 102.86 percent. The three-bedroom, four-bath apartment with its elegant 3,623 square foot layout also captured second place in the price per sq. ft. category at $993.65. The Somerset House condominium buildings are set within the 17-acre gated Parc Somerset community, with a vast array of country-club style amenities including a clubhouse and sports complex with underground entries connecting to each building. Second place in the price sweepstakes along with fifth place in the size category goes to Unit #1702 at Turnberry Tower in Arlington’s Rosslyn waterfront community. The two-bedroom, 2.5-bath residence with 2,227 square feet of space, a private elevator, and a huge private balcony, sold for $2,000,000 ($898.07 per sq. ft.).
