About this listing
This contemporary and visually striking apartment is in a private home owned by an architect. The location is the highly desirable and close-in Palisades Village neighborhood of Washington, DC. You're a short stroll to a host of fine dining and casual restaurants, Sushi spots, shops, cafes, gourmet takeouts, a fine wine shop, a yoga studio and a Farmer's Market. The area inspires nostalgic feelings of neighborhood comfort, while allowing you to be a stone's throw away from the city's urban dynamic.
