22 West Condo sold By Former Fannie Mae CFO
The Tenleytown headquarters of Fannie Mae is just 3.2 miles and three turns away from the luxurious 22 West condo building in DC's upscale West End neighborhood. This cream puff of a DC commute was a major draw for former Fannie Mae CFO Susan McFarland when she elected to move from Richmond to the District. Now she is moving on and recently sold her 22 West condo realizing a healthy $165,000 gain over the purchase price in 2011.
A full menu of amenities, including a 24-hour concierge staff, drew McFarland to 22 West. The building also features a rooftop pool, fitness room, floor-to-ceiling windows, i-Port docking stations, high-end appliances like Poggenpohl cabinetry in the kitchens, Kashmir granite countertops and Bosch cooktops, stoves, microwaves and warming drawers as well as luxury fixtures in the bathrooms.
The West End is in a neighborhood of recently completed upscale luxury condo developments in the Northwest Quadrant of DC. The West End is home to embassies, George Washington University Medical Center and several posh hotels like the Ritz Carlton. West End residents enjoy the ease of shopping at the neighborhood Trader Joe’s market and the nearby Foggy Bottom Metro Station.
