Pulling up to the grand shimmering blue onyx glass building trimmed in a silvery labradorite infused granite, it was hard to believe that the building we were arriving at was a condominium development; it feels like one of those exuberantly grande hotels of Miami or Las Vegas- in a very, very good way. Gracious valets attentively greet you and whisk your car away and then you make your entrance- if you are looking to feel special, then this is it. Turnberry Towers, Turnberry Ltd’s latest- and hottest- development right here in Arlington offers the most exceptional living experience imaginable.
The lobby is adorned with one-of-a kind museum quality art, in a gallery fit for a five star hotel. Soaking up the sexy design, with details that even the most discerning eye can feel confident in: marble floors painstakingly aligned to match in a gorgeous pattern sweep as far as the eye can see, towards the open entertainment room complete with a caterer’s kitchen, full bar and lounge which is fully available to the the lucky residents of the property.Yes, indeed, Turnberry Towers mimics in a delightful way a Las Vegas or Miami condominium lifestyle for those of exquisite taste.
There are dozens of spacious floor plans, but the one that gets some word of mouth right now is the Tower residence that boasts just over 5,400 square feet of delicious views of DC and beyond. A custom builder could not have done a more impeccable job: entering off of the private entry elevator into a grand foyer, you immediately are drawn to the luxurious ceiling heights that frame expansive views in almost 180 degrees. The wrap around terrace nearly has you hovering over the Potomac- you can see every detail of all of the surrounding bridges and the monuments of our Nation’s Capitol.
Stunning views are to be seen from pretty much any vantage point of this masterful residence. However, this isn’t want really makes the space. The rooms are open and winding at the same time; even in the large space, you feel cozy and tied to the rooms which are well balanced in the contemporary styling of the clean, texture free walls and ceilings. Meticulously placed recessed cans spot the home in light, which is already lit from the ample light from the Argon filled glass windows. There is a great wet bar placed discretely, yet obviously next to one of the wrap around terraces, perfect for an elegant or rowdy party.
The kitchen… sigh… oh, the kitchen. Luminous and sexy (wow, repeat of sexy- I think it is worth it in this case) Snaidero cabinets envelop the kitchen with is at the heart of the home. A massive and strategically placed island allows for optimal prep space and the Miele built in cappuccino machine just tops it all off. The kitchen is a masterpiece in and of itself. It opens to a dining space that again beckons you to scan the skyline.
Keep trekking through this home and you’ll find the glorious master suite. The space is well thought out with more fabulous architectural details, a furred down ceiling that reminds you that you have the luxurious 16′ ceiling, but at the same time, it still feels cozy while you open up the sliding glass door to yet another wrap around terrace. The his and hers baths, yes, I said his and hers baths allow for optimal use of space and less fights over who left that pesky seat up. Enough Fiora de Pesca marble is laid in these masterful suites to delight and shock the senses. Every sumptuous bath space in the entire Turnberry Towers is created to invite spa treatment, and by this, I mean that every bath space can accommodate a masseuse’s table. The his and hers closets are deep and can be custom outfitted for optimal use of space.
It is interesting to note that the walls and ceilings of the spaces are stark white and the floors remain concrete until purchased in order to allow for maximized customization. When purchasing a dwelling of this caliber, one would never want to settle for something that they aren’t in love with. That being said, around each corner of this fascinating and elegantly designed Turnberry Tower residence is another detail, whether it is the sparkle of mica in the granite, or a matched bit of veining in the travertine floors, attention has been paid. Not only was attention paid to the decor, but also to the functionality of the space. Each residence has high performance McQuay HVAC systems, energy recovery systems to pipe in fresh air, and energy star rated appliances in this LEED Certified building. The Tower residence is fully pre-wired for cable, alarm, and audio visual. All of the details have been imagined, and executed beautifully. Along with the residence itself, the building details are attended to by a conscientious and professional staff of concierge and spa attendants. Anything you can dream of, you can attain at Turnberry Towers in Arlington,VA.
