I got a call the other day from a lady saying, “I’ve been away from the area for a little more than 10-years, and was amazed when I saw this community.”
And she’s right. Not much more than 10-years ago, Park Potomac didn’t exist. But it really thrives now. From luxury, well sized brownstone style town homes to condo living to offices to Harris Teeter and restaurants, Park Potomac is a place where several thousand people now live, work, and play every day.
It’s a community where you could literally step out of your front door and walk a few blocks to your office, then over to Harris Teeter for groceries and much more, or out for dinner at Founding Farmers, Wine Harvest, Sugo, Elevation Burger, and more. So let’s take a look at everything that’s available for the fortunate who call this community home.
The luxury brownstone town homes were built by EYA in 2006. They really helped push the trend of luxury townhouses with elevators to provide “downsizing” home buyers an option to let them live in a larger space than a typical condo longer.
And these town homes are not small. With about to nearly 4,500 square feet of total living space on the larger models, 2-car garages, gourmet kitchens, hardwood floors on the main levels (some chose the option on multiple floors), a smaller deck off the kitchen, and the large roof top deck for entertaining and relaxing, these brownstones are hardly a step down from many homes.
They range in price from a low of around $875,000 for The Sterling model to a little over $1,430,000 for the larger Berkley and Lincoln models. They all feature the signature EYA roof top deck on the 4th level. And all have garages. The smaller models do not have elevators.
The community has a tot lot, fitness clubhouse, and seasonal pool.
The Park Potomac Place condo building from the entry, makes you feel like you’re on a New York City sidewalk. That was the design. City style homes giving way to a luxury condo building consisting of 152 condo units within steps of restaurants and shopping.
The condos range from 2 bedroom condos of 998 square feet from close to $600,000 and up to 3 bedroom penthouse units around $2,000,000. There’s an outdoor pool, fitness room, luxurious club room (that can be rented by residents for only $100 for the day), garage parking, and beautiful courtyard with grills.
The condo units themselves, depending on the upgrades chosen, are generally on the mid range. Now, even though the condo building was built in just 2008, I’ve been in a 3 bedroom penthouse that was substantially renovated (remember builders don’t allow complete customizations only certain upgrades and color changes) with marble floors and complete high end finishes. That might have been the extreme, but some owners have down nice renovations.
And with the penthouse unit, relative to prices for newer luxury condo buildings in the area, at over 3,200 square feet, the $1,840,000 selling price for the unit is actually a good value. I know it doesn’t seem that way, but newer luxury condo buildings going up recently wouldn’t get anywhere near that amount of space and still push at $2,000,000 and higher.
And right outside the front of the building is a larger green space where the Summer brings out bands and events. And of course Harris Teeter and all the restaurants.
There are also 2 guest suites that can be rented by resident’s guests for only $100 a night. There’s also a FREE shuttle bus that takes residents to the White Flint METRO. And mixed in the the brownstones, condo building, and commercial areas is The Perry, a luxury apartment building.
Just off the green space in front of the office building (where my office is located), there’s a sitting area with flowers, plants, a fountain, and even a fire pit to warm up by during the Winter.
