This contemporary duplex penthouse is ideally located in historic Mather Studios, an impressive Penn Quarter condominium building originally built in 1917 and fully restored and renovated in 2003 by PN Hoffman. Originally created as an office building and movie film storage facility, the gothic-revival terra cotta building has maintained its historic fa?ade, but undertaken a complete transformation over the years to now include commercial space, artist residences on floors 2 and 3, and condominium residences on the upper levels. This spectacular top-floor unit offers two levels of exceptionally designed open living space with features including soaring 12? ceilings, oversized windows, exposed brick walls, and poured concrete floors. The main living area has six large windows, providing an abundance of natural sunlight to the open living room, dining room, and gourmet kitchen. The chef?s kitchen is well-appointed with high-end stainless-steel appliances including a Bosch dishwasher, Viking oven and range, and Subzero refrigerator and freezer. It opens to the dining room and then to the expansive living room. The primary bedroom has terrific closet space and a spa-inspired en-suite marble bathroom with dual vanities and a walk-in frameless glass shower. There is a second bedroom and an additional marble bathroom nearby, which can be accessed from the main living area. There is also laundry and storage space on the main level. The second floor offers a wonderful loft space with a wet bar and wine refrigerator, an ideal place for entertaining. The loft directly accesses the private wrap-around terrace, which provides impressive panoramic views of downtown Washington. This condominium is in a desirable downtown location just a block from the Gallery Place Metro station and two blocks from Metro Center, Capital One Arena, and the upscale restaurants and shops of City Center. Two-car tandem parking is also included as part of this exceptional offering.
