The year ended with a flurry of new upper level market activity. The highest priced new listing is Unit #717 at 2501 M in the West End neighborhood. Offered at $4,500,000, the two-bedroom, 3.5-bath penthouse duplex is the result of combining two residences over two levels. With a 3,500 square foot floorplan, in-unit elevator, library, and two balconies, this condo is truly special. Second place goes to Unit #401 at the new Amaris building at The Wharf in the Southwest Waterfront. The three-bedroom flat with 3.5 baths and 2,485 sq. ft. of space listed for $3,975,000 and quickly went under contract, selling for full price.
A lovely four-story residence at the Kalorama Square townhome community in Kalorama came to market with an asking price of $3,795,000. With four bedrooms, four full baths and three half baths, this lovely end unit with its Federal-style architecture boasts 5,097 square feet of luxurious living space. A private back yard adds to the allure. Fourth place goes to Unit #302 at Somerset House in Chevy Chase, with two bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a formal library, and two balconies. This renovated 3,400 square foot apartment listed for $3,546,000 and sold just two days later for full price!
It’s back to The Wharf and the ultra-modern VIO for fifth place. Unit #509 features breathtaking panoramic views of the Washington Channel and is being offered at $3,499,000. The three-bedroom corner condo with three bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and 1,985 square feet of space has giant floor-to-ceiling windows, a private terrace, and a sublime Euro-style gourmet kitchen that fits seamlessly along one wall. We remain at the waterfront for our final listing, Unit #703 at Amaris. Once again, it’s a case of a new high-priced offering that was scooped up quickly. The three-bedroom flat with 3.5 baths and 1,835 sq. ft. of space sold for $2,781,300. Amaris with its dramatically twisting glass façade is part of The Wharf’s second stage and is perched on the promenade, right next to boat slips, shops, and restaurants.
