Want to live where all the action is? This spectacular end-unit penthouse offers some of the best views in all of Northern Virginia, and it is within walking distance of Amazon’s future East Coast headquarters.

Located at 1300 Crystal Drive, in the esteemed Crystal Gateway building, this gorgeous two-floor condominium includes three bedrooms, plus den/study, three full bathrooms and nearly 3,000 square feet of living space. It is listed by Jon DeHart of the McLean office of Long & Foster | Christie’s International Real Estate for $2 million.

“This is a rare opportunity to own an exquisite penthouse, with two levels of spacious rooms, and breathtaking views,” said DeHart. “The views and prestigious building address, within walking distance to shopping, dining and nightlife, create a luxurious urban lifestyle – it is truly Crystal City living at its finest.”

An elevator takes you to the penthouse level of this 18-story building. As you enter the unit, you’ll first see a fabulous open layout, expertly designed for entertaining and comfortable living. The living and dining areas are flooded with natural light from its floor-to-ceiling windows, and they are the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee with magnificent views of Reagan National Airport and the Washington Monument.

The living area has a wet bar, making it convenient to serve before-dinner drinks to your guests. Beside the wet bar is a colorful, hand-painted, wall mural of Washington, D.C.’s major roads, waterways and buildings. This painting is a complement to the outstanding views seen from this spectacular home and sure to be a conversation piece among guests.

It will be easy to cook for crowd in the kitchen with plenty of counter space. Your dinner parties will be remembered in the dining room overlooking Washington’s monuments and the lights of the city. In warm weather, open the living and dining room doors to extend your party onto the extensive wrap-around balcony, where you’ll have a front row seat to Washington, D.C.’s fabulous Fourth of July fireworks display.

A full bedroom and bathroom are also located on this level. The bedroom’s glass doors open onto the balcony—the perfect, calming place to unwind after a long day.

Upstairs, you’ll find the spacious master suite, with a sitting room and a spa-like marble bathroom, including soaking tub, shower and dual sinks. The two custom-designed closets provide plenty of space to store all your clothes, shoes and accessories in style. This master suite is the ultimate place to relax while enjoying views of the D.C. skyline. On this level, you’ll also find a large bedroom with walk-in closet and full bathroom. For quiet time, or to work from home, there is a study with a fireplace and built-in bookcases. This room could be converted into a magnificent additional bedroom.

Other features of this extraordinary property include built-in speakers, garage parking, indoor and outdoor pools, sauna, fitness center, meeting rooms, party rooms, 24-hour concierge and underground access to the Crystal City Metro station.
