The Madelon, a gem of a property, remains one of the best options for condo living, right in the heart of Georgetown. Designed by renowned architect William F. Metcalf, Jr., the building is an example of pure modern architecture, featuring large windows and light filled rooms with ceilings in excess of 9 feet. These elegant residences happily coexist with the vibrant restaurants and shops of Georgetown.
The site was originally a chicken farm, then became industrial as a dairy distribution center for horse drawn wagons. By the 1970's it was a vacant industrial building when the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts approved the Metcalf-designed mixed-use complex of six buildings for the site, and construction was completed in 1980. The Madelon started delivery in 2007 with a total of 35 residences. With admirable amenities, the building's rooftop swimming pool and terrace, high above Georgetown, offers panoramic views of the city in all directions with plenty of space to soak up the sun, relax, or entertain friends and guests. Go for a walk to the north and you enjoy the wonderful shops along Wisconsin Avenue, walk east or south and you are in areas teeming with life and excitement, walk south two blocks and you are at the Potomac River's parks and walkways.
Unit #318 is a two bedroom, two bath single floor residence consisting of 1,145 square feet. The 40' balcony runs the entire length of the condominium with access from the living room and both bedrooms. It's north facing exposure offers comfortable accessibility all day long. Hardwood maple flooring throughout and recessed LED lighting add to the contemporary esthetics. The kitchen is separated from the living area with a large granite-topped island that's ideal for entertaining. The master suite offers an expansive walk-in shower with a River Rock floor and cantilevered vanity.
