Don't miss this lovely gem of a one-bedroom (plus den/solarium) coop unit in Cathedral Heights! Welcome to the Westchester, one of Washington's storied cooperative communities that is prominently featured in the book Best Addresses, James Goode's history of the city's most historic and architecturally significant apartment houses. With stunning Art-Deco details; gracious public spaces that were originally designed by the legendary Dorothy Draper; and lovely, manicured common grounds where Member-Owners can relax and enjoy beautiful natural surroundings, the Westchester is a quiet oasis in the city and an elegant place to call home. Apartment 201-A is a large (1,050 square feet), well-maintained one-bedroom/one-bath unit with a den/solarium, great flow, and one of the most popular floor plans in the building. Features include 9.5-foot ceilings, pristine parquet floors, an elegant Entry Foyer, a large Living Room, a Den/Solarium with west- and north-facing views and built-in bookcase, a separate Dining Room and a modern Kitchen. The apartment offers ideal space for working from home in comfort, and for relaxing or stylish entertaining. (The dining room can easily accommodate eight or more people at table.) Two of the three HVAC wall units are new, replaced in 2018 and 2020, respectively. There is plenty of closet space including a large walk-in closet in the Bedroom and a cedar-lined linen closet. Extra storage is also available for rent in the building. The Westchester offers elegant living in a quiet enclave of Upper Northwest DC. Typical of the construction standards of the pre-war era, the superior insulation and thick walls render Westchester units among the quietest in the city. Its many amenities include a concierge desk; ample on-site parking; bicycle storage; exercise room; onsite convenience store/deli, hair salon, barber shop, and dry cleaner; and guest suites that are available for rent. The Westchester is very close to shops and restaurants in Cathedral Commons including Giant, CVS, Starbucks, Two Amys, La Piquette, Barcelona, Raku, Heritage India and Cactus Cantina. At nearby Foxhall Square on New Mexico Avenue, you will find Chef Geoff's, Wagshal's, Walgreen's, Vorthuis Opticians and many medical offices. Metro Bus service to downtown DC is available on Cathedral Avenue at the front entrance to the property, and to Georgetown and Chevy Chase along Massachusetts and Wisconsin Avenues, three blocks away. The monthly coop fee includes property tax; all utilities except cable/internet; 24-hour security; and concierge services including porter assistance, and package acceptance. Luxury is affordable at the Westchester!
