Gaslight Square Condominiums Description
Gaslight Square is a unique community of luxurious condominiums that are situated in two (soon to be three) buildings. Most condos for sale at Gaslight Square have direct elevator access, tall ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows; all features that are difficult to find in Arlington.
Built in 2012, Abdo’s award-winning community adds another layer of inventory to the upscale condos in Arlington. The community stands out by offering residences that will vary drastically to the luxury condo market in Rosslyn that is currently occupied by the Turnberry Towers and Waterviews of the world.
While these high-rise communities excel at providing white-glove service with seemingly every amenity in the book, condos at Gaslight Square will provide its residents with the same lifestyle without the fanfare. There is no valet, no front desk, and no gym trainer anxiously awaiting your arrival.
Gaslight Square has more discretion than that. Condo fees are significantly lower because the community’s emphasis is on individual condos, and not the amenity package. That being said, Gaslight Square condos for sale will come at a premium price tag.
The community is comprised of one and two-bedroom condos that emphasize the loft layout. There are a number of one-level units that will be of the one and two-bedroom variety. These layouts easily exceed 1,000 square feet (for both one and two-bedroom floor plans) and will have direct elevator access (for those above the first level) and a private outdoor space.
Two-level condominiums can reach up to 2,000 square feet and will all feature a half bathroom. The two-bedroom layouts will have 2.5 bathrooms while one bedrooms will have one and a half bathrooms. Spiral staircases or floating staircases are usually the two options unless previous owners have modified the condo.
Kitchens are open and will feature the best appliances and features that money can buy. The open layout will look out over the living and dining room and through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Top-floor units will have private rooftop terraces. First-floor units will most likely have multiple outdoor spaces; one balcony outside of the master bedroom to go along with an outdoor terrace off of the living room on the courtyard side of the community.
The biggest assets that Gaslight Square flaunts are the loft layouts and the allotted square feet. Two-story condos in this price bracket do not just come available in Arlington. They might be available in DC in converted warehouses in dubious, ‘vibrant’ neighborhoods, but in more desirable neighborhoods like Rosslyn, the condo inventory is mostly heterogenous, save for Gaslight Square.
The downsides to the community are the aforementioned lack of amenities, the deficiency of standard one-bedroom condos, and the immediacy of the Metro. Gaslight Square is located between two Metro stops and can be inconvenient compared to other communities that are situated steps from Metro.
Gaslight Square Arlington provides a distinct luxury lifestyle that is a stark contrast to the high-rise communities in the area. Highlighted by tall ceilings, cutting-edge kitchens, and direct elevator access, Gaslight Square offers a suitable (and superior?) alternative to luxury condominiums in Rosslyn, VA.
