McLean condo has two suites, two parking spots -- Gazette.Net


A fireplace and two covered parking spaces will be delightful for residents when the weather turns frightful. This fourth-floor unit in The Palladium at McLean has many amenities and offers a list of luxury features.

Hardwood floors appear in the front entrance hall and the adjoining rear living and dining space. With crown molding and chair rail, this area displays a fireplace framed by built-in bookshelves and a TV nook above cabinets. A sliding-glass door opens to the balcony with a view of downtown McLean.

The entrance hall also adjoins the kitchen where a pass-through leads to the living and dining area. The kitchen features granite counters and stainless-steel appliances, including a six-burner Viking range, above hardwood floors. On the other side of the foyer, a multipaned glass door leads to the office in front of the powder room.

Two suites stand on both sides of the living area. Covering nearly a third of the home, the master suite bedroom has crown molding. A walk-in closet stands next to a bath with a separate tub, a glass-enclosed shower and a dual vanity sink. The second suite also includes a private bath with a combined tub and shower. Both bedrooms offer balcony views.

Almost every amenity is close at hand for this condominium community. Inside the dramatic, contemporary brick-and-stone mid-rise, a café provides coffee and tea, salads and sandwiches, and desserts. Shopping is less than half a mile away across Chain Bridge Road, and restaurants are even closer. The Palladium’s covered garage includes two reserved parking spaces plus storage space.

The building also includes a TV center, a library, a wet bar, a conference room, concierge service and 24-hour security. A mirrored fitness center features treadmills, exercise bikes and other equipment.

The public schools are Franklin Sherman Elementary, Longfellow Middle and McLean High.
