ONE OF A KIND OFFERING!!! Sensational, 9100SF, 2-level penthouse at Somerset House II with expansive terraces on both levels. Enjoy a glass of wine or your morning coffee while soaking in the scenery and sunrise/sunset! This exquisite residence crowns the DC metro area's most exclusive gated luxury condo complex. Quality craftsmanship is reflected in the no-expense-spared renovation completed in 2004. A gracious curved iron stairway graces the foyer, perfectly showcasing the "eye to the sky" stained glass skylight. From the foyer, continue to the rich wood-paneled library with its wall of floor-to-ceiling cabinets into the elegant parlor (with gas fireplace and slider access to the terrace). Take in the muraled niche before stepping up to the restaurant-worthy bar (martini, please - shaken, not stirred) and round the corner into the breathtaking salon with its 18+ ft wall of west-facing windows and plenty of space for the grand piano. A secret room houses the electronics for the entire unit in the generously sized yet cozy study, and beyond that is the sumptuous luxury hotel-worthy primary bedroom suite. The suite features include a sitting room area with an electric fireplace, two generous dressing room areas, and two separate baths - one with a soaker tub, electric fireplace, and separate shower, and the other with an oversized step-in shower, and a dedicated steam/sauna room. The stunning banquet-sized dining room is adjacent to the chef's dream kitchen featuring an enormous prep island/breakfast bar, professional-grade appliances, a breakfast room space with gas fireplace, large walk-in pantry, and a fully equipped and separate catering kitchen. Two guest powder rooms and another complete the main level floor plan. The upper level of the condo, with its own entrance from the common hallway, features the comfy family room (with gas fireplace) overlooking the salon on the main level. Two guest bedroom suites, one with a separate sitting room and ensuite bath, the second with an ensuite bath, the hall bath with shower, a bright and spacious laundry room, and the separate in-law/nanny suite (with its own entrance) complete this level. The in-law/nanny suite has a full kitchen, living room, spacious bedroom, full bath, and terrace access. Four garage parking spaces and a huge storage unit convey. The majority of furniture conveys with the sale too! Enjoy resort-like living in Somerset House, Friendship Heights' most luxurious complex. Situated on 17+ acres, the gated community with gatehouse is amenity-rich with 24-hour security, lushly landscaped grounds, tennis courts, 3-story clubhouse with indoor/outdoor pools, party rooms, state-of-the-art gym, racquetball court, billiards & ping pong room, aerobics room, and more! It's an easy stroll to the shops, dining, and conveniences of Friendship Heights and the Metro! Furnishings are included in the offering price.
