While luxury for some people will always mean a mansion on an estate of several acres, others define opulence as a sophisticated city residence with skyline views, a doorman, a concierge and a location within walking distance of fine restaurants, cafes, bookstores, art galleries and nightlife.

The residences at 22 West, at 1177 22nd St. NW in the District’s West End neighborhood, fit this description perfectly. The nearly sold-out 22 West has 10 homes available, including three professionally designed penthouse homes, each with a private terrace.

Amenities at 22 West include a staffed 24-hour front desk, concierge services and a uniformed doorman; a rooftop swimming pool, sundeck and garden; a penthouse-level fitness center; and landscaped grounds. The elegant main lobby and the lobbies on each residential floor have natural stone flooring and plenty of natural light. The building has an on-site manager and engineer in addition to the concierge, plus a website accessible only to residents for news and information.

The Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Sports Club/LA are directly across the street from 22 West, and residents can walk to Dupont Circle, Georgetown, the new restaurants and shops at 2200 Pennsylvania Avenue, and the Foggy Bottom Metro station.

Each of the 92 homes has floor-to-ceiling windows; granite counters and top-of-the-line cabinets and appliances in the kitchen; luxurious baths with soaking tubs, natural slate flooring and marble walls; a washer and dryer; and integrated high-speed Internet, satellite TV and iPort docking stations.

Each home has ceiling heights of at least 9 feet 6 inches in most of the principal rooms, natural oak flooring, individually controlled heating and air conditioning, and one or two garage parking spaces with a nearby storage space.
