by Nena Perry-Brown

This week’s Best New Listings includes condos in Logan Circle and Lincoln Park, and translucent stories in Glen Echo Heights.


A Picture-Perfect Jameson in Glen Echo

Designed by architect David Jameson, this 4,700 square-foot Glen Echo Heights house is an old UrbanTurf favorite. The rectilinear exterior of the steel-framed house evokes an old Instamatic camera, highlighting a lightwell that creates a double-height space at the center of the living room. This room also has a floating fireplace opposite sliding glass doors that open out onto a frameless glass-bordered balcony that is also accessible from the owner's bedroom. On the second level, the aforementioned lightwell is surrounded by a deck with views of the Potomac River, accessible via a loft/office with shelving lining a floor-to-ceiling window seat. The walk-out lower level has a family room, wine cellar, laundry room, and three bedroom suites, and the backyard terraces down to a pool deck with hot tub and translucent pool house.
