Welcome home to the Embassy Condominiums! Designed in 1924 by prolific architect Stanley Simmons, the Embassy Condominiums were once named Washington's "Smartest Apartment House". One of only four in the building, this rarely available and highly sought-after floor plan has become available for the first time in five years. Unit 302 is a true gem, full of preserved historic detail while being perfectly outfitted for modern day living. Coming in at 1370 sqft, this post-war condo allows for wonderful spaces that you seldom find today, such as a proper (and spacious) foyer and a chic formal dining room, both of which really make it feel like home.

As you step into the handsome entry, you?ll first notice the beautiful, original white oak floors with dark walnut inlay, which have been expertly refinished. Making your way through the home you?ll find the kitchen has undergone a recent facelift, and the bathroom an elegant renovation. Being south-facing, there is no shortage of natural light as it streams through the bright and airy bedrooms, which have peaceful views of the park across the street.

In regards to the ?bones? of the place, the owner has paid, in full, the nearly $6,500 special assessment for replacement of the vertical bathroom risers, a common element, which is in addition to the $15,000 she previously spent on replacing all of the horizontal inputs in this unit (that link to the vertical) with new PVC piping. This is a very necessary upgrade given the age of the building, however it is often times overlooked due to the costliness of it.

While already exquisite, this Gothic Revival building?s main lobby will be undergoing an update later this year to refresh the welcoming space. Convenient in-unit laundry along with a dedicated storage unit, workout room and library round out all that this graceful home offers its new owners. All offers due 3/28 by 2pm.
