Sutton Towers Offers Great Value in Wesley Heights
The Sutton Towers complex located at 3101 New Mexico Avenue, NW, in Washington, DC, is a bit of an anomaly as one of the few condo properties located in the largely single-family neighborhood of affluent Wesley Heights. But, for residents looking for a low-maintenance lifestyle with urban conveniences and the privacy of a suburb, Sutton Towers nicely fills the bill.
Located in the gated Sutton Place community, the 9-story complex sits on 13 acres with 192 spacious homes of varying sizes ranging from studios to three bedroom apartments with two-level floor plans. Even the one-bedrooms are generously sized with close to 1200 square feet. Many of the homes feature soaring ceilings, large windows and a private outdoor balcony with views of the nearby Cathedral and other open green spaces. Despite the secluded setting, the complex maintains a 24 hour doorman and front desk service. Residents can take advantage of the tennis courts on site as well as a swimming pool and fitness center. In fact, residents can leverage the award-winning Sutton Racquet Club for tennis social events, adult clinics and expert tennis instruction. Garage parking makes it easy for commuters who drive to work although you can leave your car at home at night. Metro bus access delivers commuters to the nearest Metro Station at Tenleytown-AU on the Red Line. Sutton Towers is also within walking distance of an upscale shopping center with a number of trendy boutiques, a Starbuck's and multiple dining options.
Surrounded by Natural Beauty
Surrounding Wesley Heights was one of the nation's first planned communities and reflects this attention to detail in its wooded environs. The area was specifically designed for the homes to blend into the natural beauty around it rather than the more traditional grid-like street plan that is a fixture of many neighborhoods. The leafy area is also home to the Wesley Heights Park Trail -- a scenic wooded pass connecting nearby Battery Kemble Park with Glover Archibold Park which offers its own network of hiking and cycling trails.
At prices ranging from approximately $450 - $480K, the one-bedrooms in Sutton Towers are a good value in a sought-after neighborhood where the homes command $1 million+ prices.
