Not only is this in Georgetown with waterfront views, it is the building that had the highest priced condo sale in 2012.

2. Turnberry Tower

1881 N Nash St
Arlington, VA 22209

Turnberry has a few famous last names on its resident list (like Albritton and Bush) but people love it for the iPad-controlled amenities. Residents can request their car be brought up from the garage by the valet from their iPad.

3. 22 West Condominiums

1177 22nd St NW
Washington, DC

The not-subtle building on M Street has many million dollar units inside, but the best ones are the ones on the 'point' overlooking M Street.

Washington, DC 20003

Capitol Hill has held the homebuying population's interest for at least the past ten years and it is still one of the hottest neighborhoods to live in.

There are a few Ritz-Carltons in the area to choose from, but this one is in a slightly quieter neighborhood so it feels more residential than touristy.

7. Parc Somerset

5630 Wisconsin Avenue
Chevy Chase, MD 20815

Not too far from the DC line is the building that recorded the highest priced condo sale ever for the area (the sale was finalized in December 2012).

8. Landmark Lofts At Senate Square

For a building that used to house a bunch of nuns, this place has come a long way. It is so close to Hopscotch Bridge, Union Station, and the other H street perks.
