Property Description

This bright and spacious top floor, corner unit is a must-see. The owners have meticulously maintained and updated their home for security, convenience and efficiency. This fifth floor unit is unique in the building as there are no neighbors above and no adjacent unit doors across the hall which means little to no foot traffic in the hallway. The unit also conveys with an assigned parking space in a secure, gated lot and a storage unit in the basement. And pets are allowed! (two pet maximum, only one dog allowed, must be less than 45 lbs). Entering the living room, light streams in from the window and the door of one of TWO private balconies. Grow your veggie garden out there or take your computer outside and work in the sunshine. There is an electrical receptable directly behind the TV and a cable raceway designed to hide wires for a sleek, clean look with no wires at all showing around the TV. Also in the living room, you'll find a third-generation Nest Thermostat which includes a sensor in the bedroom for adjusting the sleeping temperature. Two receptacles in the living room are Kaza WIFI-enabled smart switches that can be controlled from the phone. Last, but not least, the front door has a Eufy Smart Lock with fingerprint reader and touch screen allowing the owner to lock and unlock the door on the phone from anywhere there is WIFI. The front door and door frame are metal and there is a Defender Security door lock installed making the entry to the unit extremely secure. The well-appointed kitchen was updated in 2020 with blue subway tile backsplash, engineered quartz countertop, FLOW motion-activated faucet with pull-down sprayer, GE stainless steel microwave and bottom freezer refrigerator with ice maker. The Waste King garbage disposal was replaced in 2019. There is even space for a café table or a kitchen cart for additional storage. A WIFI water detector was installed in the kitchen under the sink to detect and immediately report to the owner any leaks from the dishwasher, sink or garbage disposal. Being on the corner means the extra-large bedroom has both north- and west-facing window exposures for loads of light and the second private balcony directly off the bedroom for sips of morning coffee in the fresh air and panoramic views of Columbia Heights. You can even glimpse the National Cathedral off in the distance. Just off the bedroom is an open foyer/hallway with the spacious bathroom and the hall closet containing the full-sized side-by-side washer and dryer and shelving for storage. There are SO many upgrades in this unit! -HVAC system (both the air handler and the condenser unit on the roof) was replaced in the summer of 2021. Air handler includes an EZ-Trap that will the turn off the system if the condensate pipe backs up. -All light switches and electrical receptacles in the unit were replaced in Summer 2021 (two receptacles are smart switches and five receptacles with USB-A/C ports. -Light fixtures in the unit were replaced in 2018 and are integrated LED. -Both balcony doors and transom windows were replaced in 2019 with fiberglass doors with insulated glass designed to block noise, resist weather damage, and provide energy savings. -All windows in the unit were replaced in 2018 with double-hung, insulated windows also designed to be energy efficient, block outside noise and hold up the wear and tear. -50-gallon water heater was installed in 2017 with a connection to the building’s main condensate drainage line to protect from water leaks and also a WIFI water detector that sends wireless alerts to the owner’s smartphone if a leak is detected. Wardman Court is a walker's paradise located equal distance from the historic U Street Corridor and Columbia Heights with easy access to the 14th Street Corridor and Dupont Circle. Just a half mile walk to your choice of two metro stops and so many excellent local restaurant and grocery options within easy walking distance.
