The best views from this week’s featured property are at sunset, says listing broker Gigi Winston of Winston Real Estate.

The 3,640-square-foot co-op at Watergate East in Northwest Washington is surrounded by windows, some of which overlook the Potomac River, others gazing upon the monuments.

“The Washington Monument glows,” Winston said. “The Kennedy Center glows. It’s a very spectacular view of both monuments and river, which is unusual.”

The four-bedroom, 3½-bath apartment, which was completely renovated within the past couple of years, has a curved layout and open floor plan with hardwood floors and crown molding throughout. The living area features a wood-burning fireplace.

The master bedroom suite has access to one of the apartment’s two balconies. The unit also comes with two underground parking spaces and all the Watergate amenities, such as a 24-hour desk and an outdoor pool.

“If you’re coming from a house, this is a really good choice because it has enough rooms for guests, for a home office, for whatever you need in the apartment, and it’s very open,” Winston said. “Yet it’s a one-level, easy lock up and go.”

The apartment is on the market for $1.795 million with a monthly co-op fee of $5,526.30.
