Friday Dream House: A Contemporary Home at the Edge of Rock Creek Park

The Brightwood home was custom-built to LEED standards in 2011.

Open and airy, this five-bedroom home just off upper 16th Street, Northwest, was custom-built by HRY Design in 2011 to fuse organic warmth—via rich walnut floors and lots of wood accenting—with contemporary design style features, such as white marble, sleek white, glass-walled balconies, and stainless steel stair rails. Walls of windows allow natural light to flood each of the four levels, and upstairs, a wall of planked walnut and marble fireplace add a chic vibe to the large master suite. Other highlights? The open rainfall shower and soaking tub in the spa-like master bath, and a duo of wet bars, one each on the lower and top floors.

The property is listed at $1.499 million. Take a look inside below, then go to Long & Foster for the complete tour.
