Listing We Love: A Sustainable Architectural Marvel Near U Street

This $1.25 million triangular home’s exacting design was dreamed up by one of DC’s best-known urban planners.

As one of DC’s more unusual and striking homes, this modern triangular structure makes a sharp statement at the corner of Tenth Street and Florida Avenue in Northwest. Built by and for Jeff Speck—an urban planner whose résumé includes such titles as former design director of the National Endowment for the Arts and author of Walkable City—the glass-and-brick flatiron wedge design was once featured in both the Washington Post and Home and Design magazine.

In addition to the unexpected geometry, the four-level home boasts green construction (including solar-powered hot water and radiant heat in the bamboo floors) and some unique interior design features—in particular, that sculptural, one-piece steel spiral staircase. Other architectural standouts? Dramatic glass walls, floating balconies, and a modern wood-burning fireplace tucked into the pointed corner of the living room.

The four-bedroom home is listed at $1.25 million. Check it out below, then go to TTR Sotheby’s for more.
