Listing We Love: A Designer’s Minimalist Penthouse in Georgetown

Black, white, and chic.

Buying up an interior designer’s personal property almost guarantees a chic home—and this Georgetown condo doesn’t disappoint. Designer Robert Shields personally customized every inch of this 1,300-square-foot, two-bedroom penthouse on Prospect Street, creating an open layout and modern minimalist vibe by raising the ceilings, adding pivoting and pocket doors and built-in bookcases, and merging rooms. And though the designer’s über-stylish black-and-white furnishings surely won’t come along with the purchase price, here’s what will: The rich ebony beams, doors, and staircase; the glossy, seamless white floors; the kitchen’s stunning veined-marble counters (the slab was hand-picked in Italy by the designer himself) and custom high-contrast cabinetry; the minimalist black sink, marble tile, and steam shower of the two bathrooms; and the marble-mounted, eco-friendly modern fireplace that separates the living and dining spaces. There’s also art lighting, a built-in sound system, linen drapery, a balcony and access to the building’s rooftop pool. The property is listed at $1.199 million.
