Most Expensive Homes on the Market: A Modern Marvel in Dupont
A ’40s-era condo goes über-contemporary, thanks to a 2007 redo by architect Robert Gurney.
Back in the 1940s, this end-unit rowhouse on R Street was used as a naval officers’ club. In 1990, it was converted into condos, and in 2007, the current owner commissioned contemporary architect Robert M. Gurney to redesign the space. Now, the renovated 2,500-square-foot apartment is an indoor-outdoor oasis of sleek, modern lines, with an arched wall in the open living layout, ebony-stained white-oak floors, a gourmet kitchen decked out with top-level appliances, and a sleek, pegboard-style wine cellar. In the back, southwest-facing glass walls overlook a private terrace, designed with multiple entrances for maximum entertaining potential. Upstairs, the master suite includes a dressing room and a master bath fitted with an aluminum vanity, a soaking tub, and a rainfall shower. Elsewhere, there are two more bedrooms and bathrooms, plus a wet bar and custom detailing such as built-in cabinetry, a movable wall, and a Murphy bed. The property is listed at $2.75 million. See below for a look, then head to TTR Sotheby’s for the full tour.
