Baltuskonis chose a one-bedroom unit in front of the building because of the natural light coming in through the south-facing bay windows. She said her Arlington apartment was out of direct sunlight from November to mid-March.
“It really affected my mood and energy levels,” she said. “I knew that good light was important no matter where I bought it.”
Baltuskonis also said he likes the amount of storage included in the floor plan. “Compassionate storage,” she said. “Many of the units I saw seemed to be really lacking.”
Five units are sold at 1435 Clifton St. NW and are priced from 535 to 1,275 square feet in the range of $ 425,000 to $ 815,000. All but one of the available units have one bedroom and one bathroom. The other available unit is the penthouse (one of the two in the building), which has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a roof deck. Some other units have their own outdoor space. Two parking spaces are available for $ 40,000 each. There are no shared amenities in the building.
The move-in is scheduled to start in early June.
For Baltuskonis, the location of Columbia Heights was another plus.
“I really like this particular building between Columbia Heights and U Street Metro Stations, which makes it convenient for all restaurants, bars, stores, and Meridian Hill-Malcolm X Park in both areas. . “
She added: “But most importantly, Trader Joe’s is within walking distance. I have some friends living nearby. I’m looking forward to not having to drive to meet them.”
D’Ann Lanning, head of the Compass-affiliated sales team, said the combination of traditional charm and modern convenience helped close the deal.
“Buyers love all the extra touches of bare bricks, sturdy slab backsplash, LEDs and more. [recessed ceiling] All the details of the downlights and bathrooms, “says Lanning.
