Homes in downtown DC are generally prized for their location, then their size, and lastly, certain amenities, with outdoor space near the top of that list. A new penthouse in the U Street Corridor privately listed by The Mandy & David Team ranks high in all these categories.
Spread out over approximately 1,800 square feet, the focal point of the penthouse is an open and airy living/dining/kitchen space, which is bordered by an enormous wall of east-facing windows that flood the unit with natural light. Given their distance from the main living area, the bedrooms down the hall almost feel like a separate wing of the home, but floor-to-ceiling windows give the master suite a similar light as the rest of the unit.
As one of the top-level condos in the six-story building, the penthouse sits just above most of its neighbors, and it has an abundance of private perches from which to see the rest of DC. There are three balconies -- two in the living room and one off the master suite -- but the crowning outdoor amenity may be the listing's private rooftop cabana. Accessed by a wide internal staircase, the 400-square foot space is outfitted with electricity and water, making for a perfect outdoor entertainment space.
“This space is seconds from everything, including the U Street Metro station, but it is high above the street bustle and very tranquil inside,” says Mandy Mills. “It's a modern and open penthouse that is filled with luxury details and lives like a home."
In addition to its living spaces, the penthouse is full of high-end finishes and top-of-the-line technology. There is a gourmet kitchen with stainless steel Sub-Zero, Viking and Asko appliances, and bathrooms with marble countertops and a frameless glass shower. Throughout the home are Wenge-stained oak floors and designer lighting fixtures, as well as a built-in speaker system with individual volume controls. The building is just over five years old and is heavy on modern conveniences, including a front desk with concierge, a fitness center, and an entertainment room with billiards and foosball.
