"This unbelievable full-floor condo offers a small boutique building and the luxury of private elevator access, not to mention the private roof terrace that spans the entire building. It’s unheard of space, inside and out!" 

Get ready for something special with this modern penthouse, combining inviting open spaces, inside and out. The 2,703 square foot residence occupies the entire top floor of the building, with three bedrooms, three full baths and a massive private roof terrace that matches the interior footprint. Yes, you read that right—a 2,703 square foot outdoor deck where you can entertain to your heart’s delight while enjoying a panoramic view of the nation’s capital.

A spacious owner’s suite has a wall of windows, overhead beam work and ceiling fan, a massive walk-in closet and an en-suite bath with granite counters, heated towel racks, heated floor, spa soaking tub and separate walk-in shower. There are two other nicely-sized bedrooms, each with ceiling fans, crown molding, large windows and well-appointed baths. Either of these bedrooms could be alternately used as a large work-from-home office space. The third bedroom has its own balcony with splendid treetop views.

Among the many bonuses that come with this extraordinary residence is an in-unit laundry/pantry with full-size front-loading washer and dryer, reserved parking and a basement storage unit. The showstopper is the massive private rooftop terrace, with paver flooring and 360-degree views of the neighborhood and beyond. From spectacular sunsets to grilling opportunities galore, this is a true example of Life at the Top.

The Margie Condominium

The Margie is a contemporary boutique building in the vibrant 16th Street Heights community. The location is superb, steps from restaurants, and two blocks from Rock Creek Park. The elevator opens privately into a penthouse foyer lined with windows. The sunny residence enjoys a wraparound layout with gleaming hardwood floors throughout. A large central living and dining area is open to a glorious Chef’s kitchen with granite counters, pendant lighting over the island and a butler’s pantry. All appliances are Viking, including an oversized gas range and hood, French door refrigerator, and dishwasher. You can dine inside or take meals up to the spectacular roof deck.

16th Street Heights

Located at 5511 Colorado Avenue at the intersection of 14th Street and Kennedy Street, The Margie is a recently-built five-story mixed-use brick building. Neighboring businesses include Gold Coast Café; a quintessential DC bodega with tables, coffee, pastries, sandwiches and groceries, plus a terrific wine selection. Directly across the street is Moreland’s Tavern, a popular and welcoming multi-level neighborhood restaurant with a large outdoor patio. Next door to The Margie is Social Kitchen, an inclusive community cook space with takeout, culinary classes and a delicious assortment of cupcakes and smoothies. Two workout studios are within a block—Second Wind Training (including CrossFit) and Twists and Turns Body Fitness (Zumba and Yoga).

16th Street Heights is a vibrant neighborhood tucked up against Rock Creek Park to the west, with Columbia Heights to the south, Petworth to the southeast and The Parks at Historic Walter Reed to the north. Developed during the early 20th century, the increasingly popular residential community is home the Uptown Farmers’ Market and a string of restaurants along the spine of 14th Street, and continuing south into Columbia Heights and Adams Morgan.

Also noteworthy is Washington’s largest and best-loved greenspace with walking and bicycling paths, the Smithsonian National Zoo, the Rock Creek Horse Center and the Rock Creek Park Tennis Center. The famed tennis facility is home to the Citi Open, and is easy strolling distance from The Margie. Simply put, it’s a great place to live.
