The highly sought-after Wooster and Mercer Lofts community enjoys a prime Arlington location at 1600 Clarendon Boulevard. Both the Rosslyn and Courthouse Metros are within easy strolling distance, as are scads of shops and restaurants. With factory-style windows and 140-year-old interior bricks taken from the original Capital Children’s Museum, this trendy development from Abdo was delivered in 2007. The downside is that new listings seldom pop up!
Unit #W305 is one of just two currently available condos. There has also been a significant price reduction, from $1,699,000 down to $1,649,000. The corner loft residence has 3-beds, 3-baths and towering two-story ceilings. Giant wrap-around windows cast natural light on the warm hardwood floors, while industrial-style ductwork winds its way overhead. Exposed brick accents are present on both floors. With 3,000 square feet of living space, floating iron stairs, an open gourmet kitchen and an upstairs wet bar, this is truly a showcase city home.
The other active listing is #W212, one of the largest one-bedrooms in the complex at 1,294 square feet. This unit has also been recently reduced in price, from $775,000 down to $749,900. The bright and open unit has huge windows, hardwood floors and a modern gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Frosted glass doors lead to the bedroom while the slate tile bathroom features a granite double-sink vanity. Also noteworthy is the balcony overlooking the courtyard.
Unit #W108 is currently pending with a price tag of $998,000. This ground floor corner unit has 2-beds, 2-baths and 1,710 square feet of living space. Wrap-around windows allow floods of natural light to bathe the warm-toned hardwood floors, while the modern kitchen with Sub-Zero, Wolf and GE Monogram appliances complements a noticeably large and open living area. Also noteworthy are the custom woodgrain closets. This condo comes with two garage parking spaces.
Finally, Unit #W301 closed in November for $1,150,000. Its original list price was $1,238,000. This 2-bedroom, 2.5 bath loft with dramatic floating spiral stairs, has 1,592 square feet of living space plus a balcony offering treetop views of the pool and beyond.
