With its twin balconies overlooking the Kennedy Center and down to National Harbor on one side and up to and beyond Key Bridge on the other side, Unit 1209 is a premier residence perched atop Watergate Eastâ€” one of Americaâ€™s most iconic addresses. Privately nestled at the end of a long hallway, this home boasts over 3,600 square feet of luxurious living space finished in elegant materials with thoughtful touches aplenty. Completely renovated, one is initially greeted by a large, open, curved living area with an unbroken row of large windows offering sweeping views. The living room elegantly adjoins a spacious dining area, which itself is adjacent to the more informal family room, each of which offers enough separation to retain distinction while never breaking up the flow of the ethereal space ideal for entertaining. Noteworthy features are found throughout, such as custom cabinetry and bookcases and custom shades in every room, a gas fireplace and dry bar in the living room, a hidden TV in the premier bedroom, a separate powder room, large coat closets, and even twin broom closets to ensure that the residence is always presentable. Likewise, the chefâ€™s kitchen was completely and tastefully redone by the current owners, who made sure to include a top-end suite of appliances by Sub-Zero and Wolf. The primary bedroom suite represents one of the finest retreats anywhere in the city, with its panoramic views giving the illusion of waking up perched in the sky. The spa-inspired premier bath features a dressing room, marble vanity with double sinks, a walk-in shower, soaking tub, and a separate European-style water closet, and an oversized walk-in closet offers ample space for the most avid of fashion enthusiasts. The second bedroom also boasts incredible views and a private bath, while the third and fourth bedrooms have been converted into a sumptuous private office space ideal for remote work (with office equipment thoughtfully hidden in a separate walk-in closet) as well as a second guest suite with bath. Meanwhile, a Savant smart home system works behind the scenes to seamlessly manage audiovisual equipment including in-home sound and multiple TVs. Being in Watergate, the residence offers a series of first-rate amenities not limited to two parking spaces and a private additional storage unit. On a point within one of historyâ€™s most legendary buildings, itself situated in an unbeatable location within minutes of the cityâ€™s top amenities, Unit 1209 at Watergate East with its Potomac River and monument views makes a name for itself as a truly distinguished property.
