Opulent, seductive and meticulously detailed, this lush art deco themed condo home is a prized Byward Market find. Floor to ceiling windows bring in soft northern and westerly light. Spaces are crafted by a refined and highly practical floor plan. A sweeping 90 foot balcony invites amazing entertaining, and offers privileged direct access to swimming, sun-patios and fitness. Set the stage for a show-stopping urban lifestyle. The superb market location brims with steps-away shopping, dining and doing.
A superb floor plan drives maximum livability. Initially the builder planned this space for a vast party room with stellar social balcony. But a persuasive buyer who refused to accept "sold-out" changed everything. Plans were redrawn and this amazing custom home was born.
Working with a great real space gave the architects an opportunity to refine the layout to match the building's true character. Results are impressive. Two large bedroom suites are located at either end of the living spaces for undisturbed privacy. A sleek home office/den is sited close to the master bedroom suite. And – a rarity in condo living – even the kitchen has a door to the exterior balcony. Entertaining flourishes.
The existing décor offers a striking canvass for creative imaginations. Art Deco is an iconic early modern design language shaped in the cultural hothouse of 1920's Paris. It uses elements like curves, zig-zag shapes and layering to create sumptuous interiors. In artistic 1920's Paris this style offered a refuge from the rising uniformity of industrialism. You'll welcome its revival here as a contrast to 'same-as' "Starbucks Modern" interior styles.
Entering this home you're introduced to a classic deco element: a curving concave wall softening the reception foyer. Polished herringbone granite tiles gleam underfoot. Crystal chandeliers glow. Intriguing sculpted ziggurat columns soar to sumptuous layered capitals. Looking up you'll marvel at the palatial layered coffered ceiling. Exotic arches amaze. Morocco or Monaco? Both kingdoms seem to have an influence...
Beside the foyer, mirrored double French doors open on a large reception closet. All interior doorways feature beveled mirrored French doors. Explore the living room. Detailing here defines a hearth-like anchor plus framed spaces designed to welcome art. Floor-to-ceiling windows bring in abundant yet soft art-friendly northern light. Warm oak flooring grounds the space. Lighting is professional throughout, with separate controls to adjust the light on virtually every surface.
The dining area is discretely complementary. Rich detailing sets a glamorous mood with glazed illuminated display cabinets.
Exploring the refined and well-equipped kitchen you're confronted with the true meaning of 'custom'. Cabinetry and counters here are shaped to capture the design theme. Sculpted storage spaces conceal clutter. The door from the kitchen to the huge balcony is party-ready.
Down a sumptuous hallway the guest suite strikes a note of contrast. Here the interiors are unembellished and contemporary. The guest bedroom is large with rich oak floors and floor to ceiling windows. An ample walk-in closet and newly renovated full 3-piece bath assure privacy and comfort.
At the other end of this hall the master suite is a sanctuary sited behind mirrored French doors. Here elegance rules with a private hallway entrance, and discrete detailing. The bathroom is a deco masterpiece. A walk in closet has a discreet vanity area detailed in the deco theme. Near the master, a poised and perfect office/den provides a tranquil workspace.
Walk the entire length of the 90 foot balcony visualizing the magic you can create. The railing here is full a length planting bed –ready for an imaginative update. You'll see why evenings will be brilliantly social. And this is the only condominium in the building with private access to the swimming pool, exercise room, sun patio and barbeque area. With a full en-suite laundry, one parking space, 24 hour concierge, and available same-floor storage you will want for nothing.
Creative spirits seeking a spacious urban home and an exciting new canvass will prize the opportunity presented by this outstanding location. The plus? Few market sites can match this address for steps away market 'restaurants and shopping life. It's here now –but only if you act decisively. Plan your viewing appointment soon.
