The appropriately titled Waterview is perched near the Potomac River in Arlington’s Rosslyn neighborhood. The full service condominium with its giant windows and glorious views is part of a mixed use complex that contains a separate office tower, as well as a dual purpose building with Le Meridien Hotel on the lower floors and condo residences on levels 14 through 30. It’s the ultimate merger of hotel and condo living, with amenities that include room service from the Le Meridien’s popular restaurant, Amuse.
Our February spotlight at the Waterview is Unit #2401, a Life At The Top listing offered at $2,495,000. This spectacular residence features jaw-dropping views of the Potomac River, Key Bridge, and Washington DC from virtually every room. With three bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and sublime finishes from designer Joseph Ireland, the 2,165 square foot apartment in the sky boasts richly hued hardwood floors, and full height built-ins. A beautiful open gourmet kitchen has blue cabinetry, dark granite counters, and Viking, Sub-Zero, and Miele stainless steel appliances. A memorable owners’ suite features a vestibule, a wall of windows with river views, a huge dressing room with custom organizers, and a stunning marble ensuite bath.
One of Washington Metro’s most impressive condos was relisted in February. Now offered at $7,400,000, Unit #2901 had previously been priced at $7,950,000. The custom built three-bedroom penthouse has three full baths, two half baths, and 4,715 square feet of space. Three egresses offer exquisite views of the Potomac River, Key Bridge, Theodore Roosevelt Island, and all the way across to Georgetown. Features include white oak rift and quartered, custom colored and hand-stained floors, and a gourmet kitchen with Clive Christian walnut cabinetry and double-thickness marble counters. The hallway leading to the bedrooms is upholstered in Jim Thompson 100 percent silk fabric.
Also new to the market in February is Unit #1504 with an asking price of $500,000. The one-bedroom, one-bath flat has approximately 700 square feet of sunny living space. Full height windows offer lovely city views, and the wide-plank wood floors are newly installed. The open Euro-style kitchen fits neatly along one wall, with Viking, Sub-Zero, Miele, and Bosch stainless steel appliances, as well as custom cabinetry and granite counters. A spacious walk-in closet is equipped with custom organizers. Also notable are the hidden custom solar shades.
Unit #1904 has returned after being temporarily withdrawn. Now available for $485,000, the 570 square foot apartment has one bedroom and one bath. The open and airy design is complemented by pale hardwood floors and massive full-height windows. Cityscape views are on full display, and a gourmet kitchen with red Wood Mode cabinetry and stainless steel appliances fits unobtrusively along one wall, maximizing the apartment’s space.
There was one sale in February. Unit #2501 closed for $2,625,000 after listing for $2,695,000. The three-bedroom, 3.5-bath corner penthouse with 2,165 square feet of listing features giant wraparound windows with stunning views of the Potomac River. An open living and dining area includes a gourmet kitchen with Wood Mode cabinetry, a Viking double oven and range, and a Sub-Zero fridge. An exquisitely designed owners’ suite features a walkway of custom closets and an ensuite bath.
Those living at the Waterview enjoy numerous amenities affiliated with the downstairs hotel including options for maid cleaning, and catering. The rooftop observation deck is one of the best in the District, offering incredible views of the river and all the way across to Georgetown. There is also a state-of-the-art fitness gym, a front desk and concierge, a community room and secure parking. Known as the Gateway to Arlington, Rosslyn is the first stop along a series of five trendy villages along the Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor, each with its own Metrorail station.
