When it comes time to search for a new apartment, there are a number of must-haves that tend to top renters’ lists.  Among the usual pet-friendly and parking requirements, features such as hardwood floors, lots of natural light and updated kitchens are frequent requests we see from our clients.  Here in Washington, DC, we’re lucky to have a wide selection of apartment communities, some with classic charm and historic details and some with brand new, state-of-the-art features.  Since a killer kitchen makes the top of our lists, we figured we’d share our thoughts on the best apartment kitchens in DC.  Bon Appetit!

2401 Pennsylvania Ave Residences

The true embodiment of class and elegance, 2401 Pennsylvania offers a living experience in which every detail is thoughtfully appointed.  The community amenities may be limited (you can still enjoy incredible views from the rooftop, an onsite Starbucks and full-time concierge) but we can pretty much guarantee that you’ll never want to leave your apartment anyway.  While the wood-burning fireplaces and whirlpool tubs certainly scream luxury, the kitchens are the true star of the show here, complete with full gas range stovetops, Sub-Zero refrigerators and custom wood cabinetry.

Hecht Warehouse

The be-all end-all in DC cool, the Hecht Warehouse hits the nail on the head in the converted warehouse department.  Formerly the warehouse of Hecht’s department store (later merged with Macy’s), this grand space has been masterfully repurposed into a community of wow-worthy amenity spaces and seriously cool apartments.  The amenities are truly like no other: a speakeasy, three unique courtyards, full demonstration kitchen and a resident-only wet bar with a kegerator are the kinds of elements renter dreams are made of.  The original industrial details are evident in the apartment spaces as well, with soaring ceilings, exposed duct work, polished concrete floors and refurbished exposed brick throughout.  The brand new kitchens blend seamlessly into the space with clean, masculine features such as stainless steel islands, Energy Saver appliances and 3 different finish options.  Venturing into the neighborhood itself, the spirit of Ivy City’s “maker” predecessors lives on with One Eight Distilling, Union Kitchen and Green Hat Distillery all calling the neighborhood home.
