A head-to-toe renovation, this light-filled apartment in the Greenbriar Condominiums is just off of Massachusetts Avenue in Cathedral Heights. With a Capital Bikeshare just across the street and ample access to the N2, N4, N6, and M4, getting to Dupont Circle or Farragut Square for the metro—or anywhere else downtown—isn’t too much of a haul. Plus, you can walk three short blocks to shopping and restaurants at Cathedral Commons on Wisconsin Avenue, including a Giant for groceries, and restaurants like 2 Amys, Barcelona Wine Bar and Raku. For exercise, there’s a Solidcore, a Zengo Cycle, and a Pure Barre. You can also do your banking, fill your subscriptions at the pharmacy, and get your Starbucks fix here. The Massachusetts 39th Trail is literally right in your backyard.

#7012 is a spacious suite on the eighth floor. Enter the 2-bedroom apartment and walk into the updated galley kitchen, which has been beautifully renovated with a subway tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, dove-grey cabinetry, tiled flooring and imported quartz countertops. Through the kitchen, the apartment opens up into an airy dining room and living space, with a wall of windows providing views of the National Cathedral. Two bedrooms, each with plenty of light, make up the rest of the space, along with two full bathrooms, complete with Grohe fixtures.
