    Description

    This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own the penthouse level 4,400sf (floor plan) home in the historic Wendell Mansions. With just four total residences in this boutique building, each one occupies an entire floor, and the building boasts the oldest manually operated elevator in the city. Once home to a Supreme Court Justice, a presidential candidate, various generals and Letitia Baldridge (Jackie Kennedy s social secretary), Wendell Mansions is regarded as one of the five best buildings from the golden age of Washington apartments, per James Goode s Best Address. Apartment #4 has been completely re-built by its current owners, with the finest finishes, and won an architecture and design award for the work. The floor plan is very functional for entertaining and every day living, with the owner s suite tucked away in a private wing, and the public rooms occupying their own side of the home. The owner s suite features a large walk-in closet/dressing room, an enormous bath with a separate powder room, and a large bedroom. There s a spacious guest suite, plus two sun rooms, a private library/bedroom, and a large office (could be a 4th bedroom). There are two wood-burning fireplaces. It enjoys the best views, including a straight-ahead view of the Washington Monument, through its new windows. One unassigned parking space conveys. Pets allowed with board approval. The building s roof and windows were recently replaced, and its systems recently updated. The main level former porter's apartment has just been renovated, for use by residents and/or for a future porter. The fees in this building are low (total monthly fee is $1,800; breakdown is $1,400 operating expense + $400 reserves). Each owner pays his/her own taxes, even though it s a co-op. Taxes for 2019 were $1,100/mo (or $13,200 annually).
