November introduced one of the highest-priced new condo listings in recent history, followed by a quick sale. Unit #PRESP2 at the Ritz-Carlton West End in the popular West End neighborhood came to market with a $9.5 million price tag. The stunning Presidential Penthouse has three bedrooms and five baths, and received an accepted offer just three days later, closing on November 19 for $9,150,000. The 5,664 square foot apartment with three private terraces takes both the highest new listing and highest sales price in the same month, as well as the highest price per square foot at $1,615.47. Second place is also quite impressive, with Unit #PH-C at the legendary Wardman Tower in Woodley Park listing on November 30 for $6,995,000. This extraordinary two-story penthouse with three bedrooms, 3.5 baths and 4,532 sq. ft. of living space blends restored old world charm and reimagined luxurious modernity.
Third place also goes to Wardman Tower, with Unit #7B offered at $4,995,000. Features include three bedrooms, 3.5 baths, 4,506 square feet of living space, a stunning library with fireplace and wet bar, a family room, living room, an amazing Henrybuilt kitchen, multiple balconies and three parking spaces. Our fourth place honoree already has a price reduction. Unit #211 at Washington Harbour in Georgetown listed at $3.5 million before a hefty $250K cut dropped that price to $3,250,000. With four bedrooms, five baths and 3,148 square feet of space, the spacious apartment is elegance personified. There’s also a massive private deck with up-close Potomac River views.
Fifth place goes to Unit #1221 at the iconic Watergate in Foggy Bottom. The completely renovated 2,972 square foot apartment is listed at $2,895,000, and boasts a sweeping balcony with lovely views of the Potomac, Kennedy Center, the pool and the gardens. Also of note is the expansive living and dining areas, plus a gourmet kitchen with Wolf, Thermador, and Fisher Paykel appliances. Our final entry is Unit #703 at Somerset House in Chevy Chase. Offered at $2,700,000, the three-bedroom, three-bath apartment has a 2,498 square foot layout with cove ceilings, lovely built-ins, a library, separate laundry room with sink, and a combination of marble and hardwood floors. The country club-style amenities as the lush 17-acre gated community are also notable, including indoor and outdoor pools, and tennis courts with an on-site pro.
