Ever wondered where Washington, DC’s power brokers rest their heads?

Look no further than the Westlight building in the heart of DC’s West End neighborhood, where a lavish condo is now up for grabs in the same building that Vice President Kamala Harris called home until not too long ago.

Listed for a cool $5.5 million, this spacious abode spans 3,000 square feet and consists of three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and a half bath, complemented by two garage spaces—a rare find in the city.

The listing, repped by Marin Hagen of Coldwell Banker Realty, sits in the same 10-story Westlight complex where VP Kamala Harris lived. Harris owned a two-bedroom, two-bathroom, 1,731-square-foot condo in the prestigious building that she parted ways with back in 2021 for $1.85 million.

Following her inauguration, Vice President Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff, temporarily resided at Blair House due to renovations at One Observatory Circle, the vice president’s traditional residence.

The primary bedroom suite comes with floor-to-ceiling windows, two large walk-in closets, and a luxurious en suite bathroom with a cedar floor shower.

Each of the two additional bedroom suites has its own walk-in closet and en suite bathroom, ensuring privacy and convenience for all.

Amenities at the Westlight are nothing short of spectacular.

Residents enjoy access to a rooftop 25-yard heated swimming pool and terrace, offering breathtaking 360-degree views of the city, along with green spaces, grilling stations, an indoor catering kitchen, and a club room.

The building also features a state-of-the-art fitness center, a business center, bicycle storage, a public library, retail spaces, and a full-service restaurant on site.

Situated in the heart of the West End, the Westlight offers easy access to some of D.C.’s most iconic neighborhoods, including Georgetown, Dupont Circle, and the bustling streets around the Kennedy Center.
