The  condominium was listed and sold by the Washington Fine Properties (WFP) team of Ellen Morrell, Matt McCormick and Ben Roth. Mr. Roth stated, “This was a very unique property for Washington, as there are very few condominiums of that size, completely renovated with high-end custom finishes.”

At the world-renowned Watergate complex, located on the banks of the Potomac River, WFP sold a luxuriously renovated apartment for $3.1 million dollars, a record sale price in the Watergate’s history.

The architectural firm of Outerbridge Horsey Associates reconfigured and redesigned two and one-half apartments into one unique and magnificent residence, considered by many to be Washington, D.C.’s finest apartment.
