Welcome to the luxurious Shoreham West Cooperative.
Designed by Emery Roth & Sons in 1964, this premier building originally opened as apartments for the Omni Shoreham Hotel. Featured in James Goode's "Best Addresses," all homes afford generous floor plans built for spacious one-level living, and the building's design provides for short hallways, with only four homes per floor. As soon as you enter this beautiful home, you are met with natural light pouring in from the oversized windows and balcony doors. The treelined, bright view makes you feel like you're in a treehouse; private but open views. Unlike many large Washington apartments, there are no hallways between the public rooms, and just short hallways providing access to the bedrooms. The design of the space is so well considered, and is laid out well for entertaining and gatherings, but also for daily living. The gracious foyer, with a powder room, leads you into the living room which boasts 9' tray ceilings. Extending beyond and opening to the living room is a large private balcony. The spacious study also has a bright, corner, tree-lined view and custom built-in display bookcases inspired by famed architect Hugh Newell Jacobson. The dining room, also with 9' tray ceilings, can accommodate large parties and provides easy access to the kitchen. The eat-in kitchen, with ample storage, opens to a service hall with a powder room and closet. The private bedroom wing includes two bedrooms, both complete with en-suite bathrooms. The owner's bedroom boasts a large walk-in closet. The bonus room could be used as an office, exercise room or another closet. The separate laundry room completes this private wing. The building's rooftop level, recently completely renovated, offers panoramic views of the Washington Monument, National Cathedral, and Rock Creek Park. The rooftop terrace, with multiple seating areas, surrounds several interior amenities, including a modern lounge, a full kitchen, plus a state of the art fitness center. Very close proximity to the shops and restaurants on Connecticut Avenue. The Woodley Park Metro station is just two blocks away, and it's always easy to get a taxi next door at the Shoreham hotel. National Airport is just a few stoplights away. A 24hr front desk, daytime door attendant and ample guest parking complete this rare offering!
