When a home pops up on the market with a price tag nearing $10 million, insanely cool features are pretty much a given. And this six-bed, six-bath Georgetown home doesn’t disappoint.
Built in 1960 but completely renovated from the ground up a few years back by owner Will Langhorne, a former pro racecar driver, the modern-minimalist design is decked out with slick amenities. Among the many: A skylit glass elevator, floating oak staircase, and panels of “smart” glass—which toggles from transparent to opaque and is featured in the home’s 1,000-pound pivoting front door and a bathroom wall—plus geo-thermal heating and cooling, antique architectural built-ins, and top-of-the-line fixtures from brands like Balthaup and Boffi.
There are seven skylights, five fireplaces, a star-ceilinged theater, and accordion glass doors that open to a garden terrace outfitted with a fire pit and saline swimming pool—with fountains. Upstairs in the master suite, an enormous bathroom features a huge, skylit double waterfall shower and a freestanding soaking tub (which supposedly cost the Langhornes more than $13,000 alone). Oh, and there’s parking space for four. Race cars not included.
3245 N Street, Northwest, is listed at $9.995 million. It’s listed by TTR Sotheby’s. Head to the home’s site for more details.
