Here is a rare opportunity to own an oversized two-story penthouse loft with soaring ceilings at Rosslyn’s in-demand Wooster and Mercer Lofts. Two bedrooms are positioned on different levels for maximum privacy. You’ll enjoy 2.5 baths, a wonderful loft area with an adjoining office/den, separate upstairs and downstairs entrances, and a 2,370 square foot layout that allows for an exceptionally spacious feel. You’ll also get two garage parking spaces!
Stepping inside, you’re greeted by gorgeous wide plank hardwood floors with blonde and brown undertones. A massive wall of south-facing windows rises a full two stories for an absolutely stunning effect. If you ever tire of all that natural sun and the vistas beyond, simply cue the custom motorized shades. Dramatic vintage-style lights hang high overhead, with tasteful 140-year-old brick accents repurposed from the old Children’s Museum in Washington adding yet another charming touch.
Living, dining and cooking areas all flow together organically in an inviting Great Room concept. The Chef-inspired kitchen is perfect for creating memorable meals, with dark granite counters, pendant lights over an eating and prep island that seats five, and Wolf and Sub-Zero stainless steel appliances set into cabinetry that matches the floors. The extraordinarily high ceilings and open spaces also lend to bright and clear acoustics, perfect for listening to music. Dinner parties in this huge yet welcoming space will be an unforgettable experience!
One of the two large bedroom suites can be found off the hallway at the main level. There’s tons of room, with a sitting area, exposed overhead ductwork, floor-to-ceiling windows and a giant en-suite bath with a twin-sink granite vanity, and soaking tub/shower combo. A large powder room adds to the convenience, as does the walk-in laundry with side-by-side front-loading washer and dryer.
Handsome floating stairs lead up to a spectacular loft area overlooking the living area below. Bonus features include a wet bar with granite top, wine fridge, and cabinetry that matches the kitchen. There’s also a delightful open den, perfect for working from home. A second primary bedroom suite offers a sitting area by a huge window, exposed ductwork, and a full en-suite bath with a granite-top vanity and a frameless glass shower.
It’s all part of a remarkable living experience at the Wooster and Mercer Lofts. The well-managed Mercer building is located in the quiet southern portion of the complex, yet less than a block from trendy Clarendon Boulevard. HOA fees include water, hot water, and internet.
Developed by Abdo and designed by Cunningham Quill Architects, Wooster and Mercer Lofts is one of the most in-demand residential communities in the Washington Metro area. New listings don’t pop up often; a testament to the amenities, a prime location and exquisite craftsmanship.
The industrial-chic red brick buildings exude an old-school character from the street, with modern and luxurious charm inside. The complex with its lush green landscaping is well-managed, with a Board of Directors and community manager that help keep everything in top shape. Residents enjoy a courteous front desk and concierge service, a delightful swimming pool and sun deck, a fitness center, club room, and a dog park.
Residents at Wooster and Mercer enjoy a close proximity to trendy Clarendon Boulevard with its many shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities. Known as the Gateway to Arlington, the Rosslyn neighborhood dates back to the Colonial era, when it served as a colorful Potomac River ferry landing. But the community has evolved mightily over the years, as has its neighbors along the Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor. The Metro-connected group of five urban villages includes Rosslyn, Courthouse, Clarendon, Virginia Square and Ballston.
The area surrounding the condo community is a Walker’s Paradise, with nearby restaurants such as Guajillo, Guerra’s Steakhouse, Quinn’s, Barley Mac, Il Radicchio and Mele Bistro, to name a few. Grocery opportunities include Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, and multiple farmers markets. The Mercer building is next-door to Hillside Park, a one-acre “urban forest” with benches and paver paths. While Unit #M406 comes with two parking spaces, there are also two Metro stations with Blue, Orange and Silver line service within walking distance.
Georgetown is just on the other side of the Potomac River via the Key Bridge. The central location also allows easy access to main arteries like Route 66, Route 50, George Washington Park, National Airport, and Route 395.
