TTR Sotheby’s International Realty is pleased to introduce a stunning penthouse residence at The Residences at Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C.

As reported in The Wall Street Journal, the property is the former private residence of noted philanthropist Michelle Smith.

Ms. Smith was the daughter of real estate developer and philanthropist Robert H. Smith, who was the visionary behind the development of Crystal City and was a major benefactor to many institutions including the University of Maryland, John’s Hopkins University, and The National Gallery of Art. During his career, Mr. Smith was responsible for the development and management of approximately 30 million square feet of commercial space and around 30,000 apartments.

“Ms. Smith's exquisite taste and attention to detail are evident in this spectacular residence,” says Matt McCormick, Executive Vice President at TTR Sotheby’s International Realty and co-listing agent for the Smith estate.

"From the luxurious finishes to the quality design and detail, the end result is nothing short of spectacular."

The property — one of five penthouses at the Ritz-Carlton — spans nearly 5,500 square feet with roughly 1,800 square feet of terrace space that overlooks the Kennedy Center, Roosevelt Island, and the Georgetown waterfront.

The main level includes living and dining rooms, a rosewood-paneled library, three-bedroom suites and a spa with imported Namibia marble. The upper level includes a private office, a family room and a bar.

The residence also comes with a separate unit currently outfitted as a private gym and staff apartment.

Listed for sale at $18,000,000, the residence represents the highest ever real estate listing of a condominium in Washington, D.C.

“The Penthouse is simply the finest apartment to be offered in the history of the Washington market. The details and finishes surpass even the most exceptional apartments I have toured in New York and London," says Mark C. Lowham, CEO and Managing Partner at TTR Sotheby’s International Realty.

"With sweeping views of the Potomac River, Kennedy Center, and the Washington Monument, the Penthouse is a unique opportunity to acquire a completely turnkey Washington residence reflecting the highest global standards."

The Penthouse is listed exclusively by Mark C. Lowham, Matt McCormick, and Ritzert-Weiss Partners at TTR Sotheby's International Realty.
