Van Ness East was constructed in 1964 with an idea that was clearly different from its early 20th-century neighbors. A new architectural sensibility was being created to rival the elegant apartment buildings that lined Connecticut Avenue. This suite of three buildings offered a new concept of what apartment living should be. Ornament and classical decorative details were forever consigned to history, to be replaced with large rooms, sensible floor plans, and plentiful windows. Instead of presenting a proud, ornate, and clearly-visible façade, these buildings are possessed of a modesty and discretion in an enclave that turned away from that busy thoroughfare and oriented itself toward the tranquility of Rock Creek Park. This 10th- floor apartment is spacious and quiet. It offers views of the park from a vantage point unlike any other. With multiple exposures, there is ample natural light at all times of day. The kitchen was recently renovated and is open to the dining area. The living room offers a balcony with views of the park, making it a very pleasant space in which to entertain. The principal bedroom offers generous closet space and en suite bathroom, while the guest bedroom may also serve as a home office. Luxury is conveyed not only in the gracious arrangement of rooms in the apartment, but in the many on-premises services offered. The building is staffed by a concierge at all times, and the fitness center, swimming pool, party room, and additional storage are among the other fine amenities. Garage parking is included, and the building is a short walk to the Van Ness Metro station.
