From its rooftop deck overlooking the city’s monuments to the dramatic wood and marble Art Deco entry hall and lobby, the luxury condominium complex at 1010 Massachusetts Ave NW offers exceptional views—inside and out. Built in 2007, its postmodern façade of brick, stone and glass lends a distinctive presence to the visually dynamic Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood.
The fourteen-story building houses 163 residences of which Unit 610 is one of the three true two-bedroom apartments. Located in the southwest corner, the abundantly lit home features 1400 square feet of thoughtfully laid out living space, including two bedrooms (at opposite ends of the apartment), two full baths, an open living/dining/kitchen space, floor-to-ceiling windows and a terrace. With the exception of the bedroom and baths, light maple hardwood flooring runs throughout.
It is on the market for $899,000, which covers one underground parking space and separate storage locker. The monthly condo fee is $868.
A massive grey-stained door opens into an entryway that is flanked, on the left, by a guest room, which enjoys a spacious walk-in closet with built-in custom storage (California Closets). Across the hall to the right of the foyer is an elegant full bath with access to a laundry room featuring adjustable shelving and a Frigidaire washer/dryer.
Further down the hall is a U-shaped kitchen with maple cabinets (some with frosted glass garage-door fronts), granite counters and breakfast bar and glass subway tile backsplash. Stainless appliances include a French door refrigerator/freezer, electric range and microwave (all GE Profile) and KitchenAid dishwasher. A large pantry closet sits across the hallway.
In the dining area, which easily seats eight, oversized windows frame the changing city skyline and reveal a slightly curved west-facing terrace that’s perfect for container gardening. It flows into a generously sized living room where the corners seem to disappear thanks to strategically placed floor-to-ceiling windows.
Off the dining room is the master suite that includes a large bedroom (sizeable enough for a king-sized bed and sitting area), a deep walk-in closet fitted with a custom California Closet storage system and wall-to-wall Berber carpeting. The en-suite bath is richly appointed with a maple vanity, single vessel sink, travertine counter, frameless glass shower and Porcelanosa tile backsplash (which also appears in the guest bath.)
Up on the roof – with its panoramic views of the Capitol, Washington Monument (and July 4 fireworks), Alexandria and the National Cathedral—there are multiple seating and dining spaces, two large gas grills and south-facing lap pool.
1010 Massachusetts is located in the heart of Mount Vernon Triangle, just steps away from the retail, restaurant and cultural/entertainment attractions of City Center, Logan Circle and Shaw. It is a short walk to four metro stations and two Capital Bikeshare docks.
