Comfort, style and convenience are embodied in this open, airy Wooster/Mercer loft with an expansive private patio surrounded by greenery. Ten-foot ceilings, tall windows and gleaming wood floors enhance the living space along with an accent wall of bricks reclaimed from Washington’s National Children’s Museum. The area accommodates a dining room, computer spot, seating and a piano. All flow toward the patio, anchored by a handsome stone wall, with room for dining, container gardening and taking a break during an at-home work day. The kitchen features a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Viking gas range, granite countertops and warm wood cabinetry — including a pantry cupboard.
Large windows ventilate the primary bedroom, which offers a sitting or desk area and a walk-in closet organized with drawers, shelves and cabinet storage. A double sink vanity in the bathroom offers more storage, and there is an oversized glass-enclosed shower.
Glass doors at the den or second bedroom admit light, and a large step-in closet stores clothing or computer supplies. Across the hall is a bathroom with vanity and toilet separated from the bathtub and laundry. The laundry area has cabinet storage and a side-by-side washer and dryer — rare in a condo. A garage parking space is included, and there is good street parking.
Built by the renowned Abdo Company, the building is of concrete construction with brick facade ensuring enduring quality and minimal sound transmission. The unit is just off the lobby with no halls to traverse and is only one flight of stairs to the garage. The well-managed 87-unit building has a fitness center, swimming pool surrounded by large sundeck, a patio overlooking the pool and a common area filled with lush landscaping.
Walk to shops, restaurants, bike trails, parks and the grocery store. It’s an easy commute to Washington, the Rosslyn-Ballston business corridor, the Pentagon, the airport, Crystal City and Pentagon City at National Landing, Fort Myer, and the Foreign Service Institute. Take the nearby Route 66 for a reverse commute to Dulles Airport and the surrounding tech corridor.
This is a home filled with character and style and in an enviable location.
