$10 Million Dollar Condos in DC-Will They Fit In a Gift Box This Year?

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Capital Properties DC AB15253

The Holidays are coming and I am sure that someone out there is trying to figure out what to give as a gift.  Here are two suggestions - although I am not sure that they will fit under the tree!  (Although I am sure that the keys would do very nicely in a pretty box with a big bow!)

A $10 Million Condo in Chevy Chase

5610 Wisconsin Avenue PH-20B in the Somerset Condos is truly one of a kind.  Where else can you find a  9100SF, 2-level penthouse with expansive terraces on both levels in the heart of Friendship Heights?  Beautifully renovated in 2004, this home has four bedrooms, six full baths and three half baths.   A gracious curved iron stairway graces the foyer, perfectly showcasing the "eye to the sky" stained glass skylight.


From the foyer, continue to the rich wood-paneled library with its wall of floor-to-ceiling cabinets into the elegant parlor (with gas fireplace and slider access to the terrace). Enjoy the breathtaking salon with its 18+ ft wall of west-facing windows and plenty of space for the grand piano.

A secret room houses the electronics for the entire unit in the generously sized yet cozy study, and beyond that is the sumptuous luxury hotel-worthy primary bedroom suite. The suite features include a sitting room area with an electric fireplace, two generous dressing room areas, and two separate baths - one with a soaking tub, electric fireplace, and separate shower, and the other with an oversized step-in shower, and a dedicated steam/sauna room.

The stunning banquet-sized dining room is adjacent to the chef's dream kitchen featuring an enormous prep island/breakfast bar, professional-grade appliances, a breakfast room space with gas fireplace, large walk-in pantry, and a fully equipped and separate catering kitchen.


Two guest powder rooms and another complete the main level floor plan. The upper level of the condo, with its own entrance from the common hallway, features the comfy family room (with gas fireplace) overlooking the salon on the main level.  The upper level also has two guest bedroom suites, one with a separate sitting room and ensuite bath, the second with an ensuite bath, the hall bath with shower, and a bright and spacious laundry room. 

There also is a separate in-law/nanny suite (with its own entrance) on the second level. The in-law/nanny suite has a full kitchen, living room, spacious bedroom, full bath, and terrace access. Four garage parking spaces and a huge storage unit convey. The majority of furniture conveys with the sale too! Enjoy resort-like living in Somerset House, Friendship Heights' most luxurious complex.

Situated on 17+ acres, the gated community with gatehouse is amenity-rich with 24-hour security, lushly landscaped grounds, tennis courts, 3-story clubhouse with indoor/outdoor pools, party rooms, state-of-the-art gym, racquetball court, billiards & ping pong room, aerobics room, and more! It's an easy stroll to the shops, dining, and conveniences of Friendship Heights and the Metro! Furnishings are included in the offering price. 

This home,  for sale at $10,500,000, is listed by Jaime Cooley of Long and Foster.  If you are interested in seeing it, please give the Lise Howe Group a call at 240-401-5577 or email us at lise@lisehowe.com.  Find more luxury Condos and Cooperatives for sale similar to the Somerset condos.

I can't even imagine a $10 million home, let alone a condo that would sell for that much.  That is definitely luxurious!
