Why Gaslight Square Redefines Luxury Living in Arlington
Those sighs of satisfaction emanating from North Arlington are the sound of owners at Gaslight Square delighting in their new homes. Gaslight Square is a sleek condo development in Arlington, Virginia, blending classic architecture with contemporary conveniences. Developer Abdo has proclaimed it their "greatest hits project," bringing together the best features of Abdo's award-winning residences over the last 15 years. The property spans a 2.5 city block in North Arlington comprising three 4-story buildings and 117 condo units in a block bordered by Clarendon Boulevard, North Queen Street, North 16th Street and North Quinn Street. Designed with the private feel of a townhouse, despite being in a multi-level building, the homes offer the no-maintenance convenience of a condo complex. Gaslight boasts red-brick and glass exteriors, dominated by oversize windows and abundant private outdoor space. The complex offers three models -- lofts, flats, and penthouses -- in six floor plans with a second-floor balcony or rooftop terrace and varying size front patios.
Few Walls; Dramatic Open Spaces
Despite the posh facade, it's the interiors that have owners ooh-ing and ah-ing. Ceilings are a minimum of 10' but soar up to 20' in the loft-like living/dining area. With few walls and dramatic open spaces, homes give the illusion of being much larger than they are with stunning entries and sweeping views from the oversize windows. The focus on premium finishes extends to the kitchens which combine commercial grade appliances, including a Wolf range, Sub-zero refrigerator, and Asko dishwasher, with the elegance of quartz countertops. Master-baths are spa-inspired with dual-head and dual-controlled showers to complement the dual sinks with tiled shower walls. All units come with one-car parking with the option to buy a second space while upper-level units include direct elevator access. The project also takes into consideration environmental concerns with Energy Star washers, dryers, windows and efficient heating and cooling systems. Owners have the option of contracting with California Closets for the latest in closet organizational systems and Ultimate Tech Solutions for audiovisual components. Hardwood floor and designer lighting further accent the clean lines of the home.
The location near a number of urban shopping sites and retail outlets is a big aspect of Gaslight Square's appeal -- a Whole Foods, Safeway, Trader Joe's, Gold's Gym, Apple Store, and abundance of restaurants and bars are all nearby.
