This beautiful, updated two-bedroom, two-bath corner unit condo at the highly sought after Hawthorn in Ballston is refreshed, repainted and ready for you in 2022. This home features open plan living, high ceilings and large windows providing an abundance of natural light. And while situated in the heart of it all, this condo's corner location on the building's sixth floor provides privacy and quiet enjoyment away from the hustle and bustle of its urban environment. You'll love the updated kitchen with its gorgeous glass subway tile, quartz counters, LG stainless steel appliances, extra large sink and a pantry (a rare offering in a condo). The combined living and dining area, featuring beautiful stained maple hardwoods, provides a perfect layout for hosting formal gatherings and dinners, or just everyday lounging. Off the main living area is a large balcony ideal for moving the party outside or catching a breath of fresh air. The spacious primary suite can accommodate a king size bed, and comes with a custom blackout shade for privacy and sleeping late. Its passthrough and walk-in closets offer more than enough room for clothes, while the updated en suite bathroom features a double vanity and a walk-in, frameless glass shower. The second bedroom is roomy enough for a queen size bed, yet works perfectly for a home office. An in-unit LG washer and dryer clean clothes with care, while the ecobee Smart thermostat efficiently keeps the home comfortable all year. Finally, assigned, garage parking - comfortably fitting an SUV - rounds out the package for this spectacular urban abode. But you can leave the car at home and enjoy all of the amenities within blocks at Ballston Quarter including gyms, dining, coffee shops, and a movie theater. Also nearby are the central library, parks, and walking and biking trails. This amazing condo is located along the Orange and Silver Metrorail lines including two stations within blocks, less than a mile to Clarendon, and only minutes to points in D.C., Amazon HQ2/National Landing, DCA and Tysons Corner. The Hawthorn is a pet-friendly, well-managed condo community featuring on-site management, fitness center, business center/community room, storage lockers, five visitor parking spaces, bike storage and a private, manicured courtyard.
