Real Estate Condos offer a mix of floor plans to appeal to those moving up and moving down

On 3½ acres along Pickett Road in the city of Fairfax, two four-story condominium buildings over two concrete garages are filling up.

A mix of 80 one- to three-bedroom units — some with dens — and nearly a dozen floor plans is attractive to move-up or first-time buyers, which comprise about a third of the sales, and to the “move-down,” or downsizing, market, which is strong, said Patrick J. Rhodes Jr., vice president and senior project manager at the IDI Group Cos., the builder. McWilliams Ballard is handling sales.

IDI, owned by the Cecchi family, has been in business 42 years and is renowned for development of Leisure World. “We know what the active-adult community likes and offer a lifestyle change that’s comfortable and affordable,” Rhodes said.

“We’ve taken the suggestions purchasers have given us over the years to make a home work for them and incorporated them into our designs and floor plans,” he said.

The Enclave embodies those structural and design elements. For example, features include an open floor plan with kitchen, living and dining rooms forming the core living area; large windows; a master bedroom situated apart from the other rooms for maximum privacy; and abundant storage space inside and outside the unit.

“I wake up every day and am happy I’m here,” Hall said.

Bruce and Connie Lauther also moved in January from a house they’d lived in for 34 years. “We noticed a sign for condos going up in mid-2016 and zipped right in,” Connie Lauther said.

“We’re ‘right-sizers,’ ” she said. “We came from a three-level house and had to get rid of a lot of stuff, but didn’t mind because the rooms here are spacious and we’re very comfortable.”

Walking through the glass entry door into the lobby is pleasant because it’s as though you’ve entered someone’s living room. There’s a couch, side chair, coffee table and glossy, dark-blue wall bookcases.

Straight ahead, through glass doors, is the Club Room, with seating areas for small groups around square game tables, on high stools along a bar top and on side chairs. Residents can rent the room for private parties. The Lauthers play bridge and look forward to inviting their club members. A fitness room is inside.

A fire pit and barbecue patio will be built. “We’ve created an outside environment because we know our residents like to be active,” Rhodes said.

The kitchen is outfitted with stainless-steel appliances, granite counters, an island that’s 11 feet at the longer end and an oversize single-bowl sink. (Benjamin C Tankersley/For The Washington Post)

Nearby: “The location is a wow for every need and age,” Bruce Lauther said. He said he’s happy that George Mason University, the Annandale campus of Northern Virginia Community College and the county recreation facilities at Oak Marr RECenter are close, and the greenery of the Army-Navy Club is within a mile. He applauds the Fairfax Regional Library and historic downtown Fairfax, with its restaurants, visitors center and museum.

Shopping: Fair City Mall has 40 stores, dining establishments and commercial venues, including Shoppers Food & Pharmacy, Best Buy, a cinema, beauty salons, a tailor, a dental office and clothing shops. Trader Joe’s and Wegmans are in Fairfax. The Mosaic District is less than two miles away and is a shopping and entertainment destination for locals and visitors — especially with the Angelika Film Center, which offers indie movies.

Schools: Daniels Run Elementary, Lanier Middle, Fairfax High.

Transit: The community is about 20 miles from the District and minutes from downtown Fairfax. It’s south of Interstate 66 at Exit 64 and south of Virginia Routes 50 and 29/Lee Highway. The closest Metro station, Vienna/Fairfax-GMU on the Orange Line, is about a mile away on the CUE bus route, which “takes you within four-to-five easy walking blocks of anywhere you might wish to go within the city of Fairfax,” Bruce Lauther said. A bus stop is steps from the Enclave buildings. The MetroBus 29N route connects with the King Street-Old Town Metro station on the Blue and Yellow lines in Alexandria and with Alexandria Union Station on Amtrak.

The master bedroom is situated apart from the other rooms for maximum privacy. (Benjamin C Tankersley/For The Washington Post)

The first 11 homes delivered in June of 2017 have been sold. Another 12 homes were released for sale in the fall of 2017 and are now 75% sold. The last 9 homes of the initial phase will be released for sale next month and will be delivered in April 2018 with an average listed price of $1.35 million. The 3 and 4-bedroom townhomes feature all brick exteriors, high ceilings, oversized windows, rooftop terraces, Juliet balconies, Bosch® appliances, designer finishes and an attached garage.

A final phase of nine townhomes called The Founders’ Collection at Buchanan Park, will be released for sale next month and deliver in July 2018. These larger four bedroom, four and a half bath homes will feature ten-foot ceilings, elevator, fireplace, Bertazzoni appliances, sand-in-place white oak floors, a rooftop terrace, laundry room, mudroom, French doors opening onto bluestone patios and backyards, and dedicated parking.

Buchanan Park is a luxurious, distinctive community on Capitol Hill that includes 41 townhomes and 41 recently delivered condominiums in the renovated historic Buchanan School building at the heart of the community. The Buchanan School condominiums are now 75% sold and were built by Ditto Residential.

The master planned community, located at 13th & D Streets SE, sits on the grounds of the former Buchanan School and honors the historic fabric of Capitol Hill by seamlessly blending the old and new. Public green spaces welcome surrounding neighbors and link Buchanan Park to the thriving Hill East community. The Central Green features a generous lawn area for picnics, children’s play, evening strolls and benches perfect for unwinding. Guetler Way pays homage to the original alley, Guethler Court, that existed onsite during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, as well as the myriad alley spaces found on Capitol Hill. It entices and delights neighbors with flower boxes, plantings, distinctive lighting and refined brick and cobblestone paving.

Residents of Buchanan Park enjoy one of the most convenient and cherished locations in Washington, DC, just several blocks from the Eastern Market and the Potomac Avenue Metro stations and steps from the retail and restaurants of Barrack’s Row and Capitol Hill. Conveniences are at the doorstep of the community with grocery stores, Frager’s Hardware, the newly renovated Watkins School, and coffee shops all within a short stroll. One mile to the south – walking past Barrack’s Row and the beautiful Marine Barracks grounds or a quick Uber ride – are Nationals Park and the waterfront entertainment areas.

In addition, this quadrant of Capitol Hill neighborhood is seeing significant growth and investment. Several new residential projects are occurring within a block and a half of Buchanan Park, including Insight’s development of the 145-unit boutique Lockwood Apartments, the redevelopment of the Safeway into apartments and a new Safeway grocery store, Ditto/OPaL’s Watkin’s Alley 44-unit condominium project, the Fragers Hardware redevelopment, a condo project on the former Frager’s Garden Center site, and a residential mixed use project with exciting new retail at 1401 Pennsylvania Avenue.

A Condo Development In Maryland With Its Own Highway Exit


The Haven at National Harbor has 248 condominiums ranging from $245,000 to $650,000. (Benjamin C Tankersley/For The Washington Post)

An outdoor pool, a lounge with a gas fireplace and a dog-washing station are among the amenities offered to prospective buyers at the Haven, a 248-unit condominium building going up at National Harbor.

But one perk for residents who drive to work is the community’s own exit off the highway. National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Md., home to the recently opened MGM National Harbor, is off Exit 2A on Interstate 495 and Exit 1B on Maryland Route 295, less than 10 miles from downtown Washington. “No other development, up or down the East Coast, has its own exit,” said Jon Peterson, principal of Peterson Cos. and developer of National Harbor and the Haven.

National Harbor is a 550-acre development that has been in the making for 10 years. “At the beginning,” Peterson said, “our mind-set was, we hope, we think this will work. We’re putting all the right pieces in place, but how will the world receive us?”

That original vision was a success. “People are coming by the thousands for fun, entertainment, [the] beauty of the site, and to live,” he said.

Recreation to residential: Initially, National Harbor was intended as a commercial enterprise. “Then we added residential, and people realized, ‘Oh, people live there, too!’ ” Peterson said. “The residential buildings totally transformed perceptions from a recreation destination to a real live community.”

The Haven was initially designed as an apartment project, but then Peterson studied demographic and sales data. He determined people were interested in living there permanently — that apartments were over-built and condominiums under-built. So he stepped in.

There are 20 junior one-bedroom condos, 117 one-bedrooms, 85 two-bedrooms, three two-bedrooms plus den, and 23 three-bedrooms. Several street-facing condominiums have their own entry door and look like townhouses. A few will have a terrace big enough for outdoor furniture, and a few will have a small balcony. A one-bedroom furnished model is available for viewing at the nearby sales office. Delivery is scheduled to start mid-summer.

Interiors will be bright, with natural light coming through big windows, and contemporary in design. Multiple floor plans will be offered. A two-floor above-ground parking podium will provide condos with one space and some of the larger ones with two spaces.

What’s nearby: National Harbor is a full-fledged neighborhood with more than 2,000 residents and 13,000 employees. “We are our own community, a micro-city and the crown jewel of Prince George’s County. We’ve built a place with everything one needs — dry cleaner, bank, drugstore and coffee shops. It sounds like a cliche, but you can really live, work and play there,” Peterson said.

There are more than 160 stores and 40 dining establishments. Potomac Gourmet Market, downtown and Aldi’s in Oxon Hill sell groceries. Tanger Outlets houses retail fashion.

Holiday events are scheduled hourly from noon to 4 p.m. Saturdays through Dec. 23.

Artwork: The Capital Wheel — a huge white Ferris wheel — is the standout landmark on the water’s edge. A carousel, steps away, is also popular.

Public art is a whimsical backdrop to street life. Milt Peterson, Peterson’s father, promoted an ambitious public art program by curating art from several artists.

J. Seward Johnson and Ivan Schwartz made painted bronze sculptures of famous people, including Lincoln, Frederick Douglass and Marilyn Monroe. Albert Paley designed two monumental steel structures, one abstract and the other a pair of eagles. Prince George’s artists also contributed: Steven Weitzman designed a large terrazzo tile mural; Norman Greene made a cast stone sculpture of five individuals; and Cheryl Foster designed two pairs of panels, one of stained-glass mosaic and another of copper, brass, aluminum and stained glass.

“Art isn’t cheap but it’s everlasting and brings joy to all,” Jon Peterson said. “You know it’s been received well when you see Lincoln’s hand is discolored because so many people have touched it.”

Schools: Fort Foote Elementary, Oxon Hill Middle, Oxon Hill High.

Transit: The Haven locale is walkable on wide sidewalks, and there’s room for bikes and cars to ride side-by-side. A bike-sharing service will begin in the spring.

The Beltway/Interstate 495 entrance is barely a minute’s drive. It takes 12 minutes to get downtown, 15 minutes to Ronald Reagan National Airport, and roughly 20 minutes to practically any other location in the region, Peterson said.

Water taxi service operates between National Harbor, Gaylord National Convention Center and Old Town Alexandria and the Mall. Starting in the spring, a service will operate between National Harbor and the Wharf. The cost is $8 to $20.

On the Market: Boutique Condos Rise from Former Commercial Space

11Park is between the neighborhoods of Logan Circle and Shaw. (Rendering by Spine)

D.C.’s changing landscape has brought a new vibe (and some gentrification controversy) to long-established neighborhoods, as well as a whole new purpose to older structures whose original use is long past the sell-by date.

Such is the case with 11Park at 1628 11th St. NW. Nestled between the hip-and-happening neighborhoods of Logan Circle and Shaw, this former commercial building has now been converted to a chic condominium complex, featuring eight ultra-modern two-level town houses and 24 flats.

Located on a quiet and historic stretch of 11th Street and across the street from a church and dog park, 11Park offers a variety of thoughtful amenities: a quietly elegant two-story lobby with wood paneling and slate tile floors; an elevator that goes from the garage to the penthouse-level club room, fully equipped fitness center and terrace with lounge and grilling stations; 19 garage spaces (separately deeded and ranging from $40,000 for a compact car to $50,000 for full-sized); storage units ($3,000 to $7,500); and bike storage. With the dog park so close by, it goes without saying that the building is pet-friendly.

Unit 106 is typical of the duplex town houses, which are located on the first and second floors of the building. (Flats are on the third and fourth stories.) It offers approximately 1,650 square feet of living space with two bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths and two very private outdoor areas: a terrace above and a courtyard below. It is on the market for $1,339,900 with a monthly condo fee $653.78.

The unit’s main entrance is from an interior hallway of the 11Park building on the home’s upper level, and it opens into a large living and entertaining space comprising the kitchen, dining area and living room. (To the right of the entry hall is a half-bath and hall closets.) At the far end is a wall of floor-to-ceiling west-facing windows and a glass door leading to a spacious L-shaped terrace with IPE wood decking and raised planter beds for privacy.

The kitchen features an appetizing blend of functionality and aesthetics. It includes soft-close Porcelanosa cabinetry; a white Caesarstone backsplash and countertop; integrated Bosch appliances (gas cooktop, convection oven, refrigerator, dishwasher); and a deep Kraus sink with Grohe faucet.

Off the dining area is an open staircase with a wire, wood and metal railing that leads to the lower level, which holds the two carpeted bedrooms, two full baths and a family room/den. Sliding doors open into the courtyard. There is also a laundry closet with stacked Whirlpool washer/dryer.

Both the full and half-baths are fitted with Waterworks fixtures, Kohler commodes and soaking tubs, Porcelanosa millwork and tile backsplash/flooring, and Caesarstone vanity counters.

At 750 square feet, Unit 402 is less than half the size of the town house — but it’s no less sleek or high end. The one-bedroom, one-bath home is listed for $639,000 with condo fee of $287.10 per month. It too features outdoor space: a sizable balcony, facing east, off the living room. Materials and finishings are identical except for the refrigerator (Blomberg instead of Bosch). Other notable features are the sliding barn door with frosted glass that closes off the bedroom and the tall glass panel that provides a view into the living room and park beyond.

Overall, there are a variety of apartment sizes and layouts to choose from, starting with one-bedroom, one-bath units at 675 to 750 square feet and ranging in price from $524,900 to $644,900 with monthly condo fees of $248.85 to $287.10. Two-bed, two bath residences range from 1,000 to 1,200 square feet and are priced from $824,900 to $1,199,900 with $400.18 to $457.97 in monthly condo fees. The duplex townhouses with 1,650 to 1,750 square feet are listed at $1,314,900 to $1,384,900, with monthly condo fees of $637.98 to $702.42.

11Park combines convenient proximity to the vibrant corridors of U and 14th streets NW with the peacefulness of protected views — a benefit of neighborhood height restrictions — and plenty of on-street parking. It also gets great walking, biking and Metro scores. The building is just blocks away from Whole Foods, Le Diplomate, Room & Board and a host of other retail and dining attractions.

The new 11Park building at 1628 11th St. NW is listed with CondoNest. For details, contact Timur Loynab at 571-215-6554 or tloynab@mcwilliamsballard.com. For a virtual tour, visit

Buchanan Park Kicks Off the Second Phase of Townhome Sales

With the first phase sold out, Capitol Hill’s highly anticipated townhome community Buchanan Park has just announced the beginning of sales for phase two. Just over half of the community’s townhomes have already sold and with homes available for immediate delivery, prices start at $1.3M. Tours of the immaculately landscaped grounds and a model home are now available by appointment.

The townhomes at Buchanan Park, a collection of 32 residences thoughtfully crafted around the historic 1895 Buchanan School, are a unique blend of history and luxury. Inspired by the Federal style architecture in the surrounding neighborhood, Buchanan Park blends the convenience of a walkable neighborhood with luxury finishes and amenities, like expansive grounds, all-brick facades, wood flooring, marble bathrooms, private parking and scenic rooftops.

Located at the intersection of 13th & D Streets SE, Buchanan Park is within walking distance of the Eastern Market Metro station and over two dozen shops, restaurants and entertainment venues. The community features landscaped spaces including a central green, multiple intimate outdoor gathering areas and a series of inviting pedestrian walkways.

The layout of the townhomes at Buchanan Park provide for ample living space and comfort. Light fills each home generously through large windows on every floor and a floor-to-ceiling wall of windows in the kitchen. The interiors were impeccably designed to complement the prominent exterior architecture.

Oversized kitchens come with Bosch stainless steel appliances and a fixed island with a seating area. Interior finishes include Waterworks fixtures, approximately 10-foot ceilings on the first floor, and sand-in place white oak flooring. Each home also comes with a spacious private terrace on the third level, a private parking garage and wrought iron fencing around the front yard.

Stonehall Featured In The Washington Post


The downtown Bethesda shopping district in Montgomery County gets all the attention and sidewalk traffic, but it’s the northern end of town, next to the National Institutes of Health campus, that’s beginning to eke out a little more of the urban limelight.

Stonehall, an eight-story luxury condominium building at Battery Lane and Woodmont Avenue in Bethesda, stands castle-like among neighboring streets with squat commercial spaces and an old-fashioned vibe. But from the upper floor, windows cranes are visible across the sky, and there are blockwide excavation pits promising lots more new construction that will push Bethesda’s boundaries outward.

“Stonehall is a boutique condo because it’s not particularly big,” said Laura Henne, director of sales at McWilliams Ballard, the company handling Stonehall sales. Forty-six units — ranging from one to three bedrooms and two penthouses — and 18 floor plans are offered. Forty-five percent, including one penthouse, are sold.

Leo and Marta Moersen said they thought about downsizing for awhile before they found Stonehall. “We lived in a three-bedroom single-family in Bethesda for 26 years and are finding the adjustment to a much smaller two-bedroom condo to be fairly easy,” Marta Moersen said.

The units are big — most are around 1,500 square feet. “We addressed the issue of moving out of a private house by making the rooms large and showing our models furnished with big pieces. We believe you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your belongings when you move here,” Henne said.

The 46 condos, including two penthouses, are priced from $549,900 to $2,499,900.
Bathroom windows: Practically all units have windows in the kitchen, and many have bathroom windows, a feature practically unheard of in new condo construction. “Because the building is long and narrow, you have windows in places that usually don’t get them,” Henne said.

Duball BW, an affiliate of Duball, is the developer; Maurice Walters Architecture is the architect; and Hartman Design Group is the designer.

David Morens moved from a 5,400-square-foot single-family home a half-mile away and is thrilled. “I think of Bethesda as my town, and to me it’s like moving down the street,” he said.

“Before I moved, I was thinking about taking care of such a big house. There’s always something going wrong. I was always mowing the lawn. I realized it was eating into my life and time. I thought, ‘This is crazy. Why don’t I spend my time doing what I want to do?’ ”

The Moersens echoed the same sentiments. “Our weekends feel so much longer now that we have fewer chores. We use this freed-up time to pursue our hobbies,” Marta Moersen said.


The kitchen has a double island, stainless steel appliances, a gas cooktop, Caesarstone quartz countertops and cabinetry with soft-close hinges. (Benjamin C Tankersley/For The Washington Post)

Plethora of storage: An entry hall leads into the home. Floor plans are mostly open-concept, but some units have a more delineated kitchen, with space for a table and couple chairs. There’s abundant drawer and pantry storage, and islands are sized proportionately. Many terraces and balconies open through a glass door from the kitchen, so carrying drinks or plates outside is easy. “Kitchen ceiling detail designed around the duct work is a nice touch,” Henne said, as are drapery rod pockets built into the living room ceiling.

The street-facing lobby is a comfortable lounging spot with concierge desk, TV screen, black couches, gold armchairs and coffee tables. There’s a clubroom, fitness center, ninth-floor roof terrace with tables and chairs, and a 10th-floor roof terrace just for seating.

Elevators open to a window-bright hallway and to a wall decorated with framed, enlarged street maps of various cities. The charcoal-tiled floor is offset with accent tiles bearing abstract designs.

Shopping: Harris Teeter is across the street. Giant and Safeway, in downtown Bethesda, are a five-minute drive, as are dozens of shops and restaurants, plus cinema, furnishings, car dealerships and commercial services. Bradley Shopping Center hosts Strosneiders Hardware, Breads Unlimited, Party & Variety, and Bradley Food and Beverage. Big Wheel Bikes is across the street.

Schools: Bethesda Elementary, Westland Middle, Bethesda-Chevy Chase High.

Transit: Stonehall is a short walk to Medical Center Metro station on the Red Line. One stop in the opposite direction, toward the District, Bethesda Metro station is 10 to 15 minutes on foot. Wisconsin Avenue is a block away and, going north, feeds into the Beltway and Interstate 95 toward Baltimore. The free Bethesda Circulator bus stops on Woodmont Avenue and is footsteps from the front door. It travels in a wide-ranging looping route into downtown Bethesda.
