A Jaw-Dropping Renovation in Spring Valley

This 1954 six-bedroom home was completely renovated and expanded by architect Robert Gurney. The listing’s front facade appears somewhat like that of its neighbors, but that’s where the similarities stop. The back of the house is characterized by large panes of glass, tiered hardscaping, gardens and indoor/outdoor living spaces that seem more like something out of a luxe cabin getaway than a DC house. There’s a pool connected to the home by a glass walkway (the floor is heated and the space is sealed to the outdoors) and a screened-in porch with a fireplace. Inside are six bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms, along with a piano hall and an office with floor to ceiling glass windows.

  • Price: $4,990,000
  • Bedrooms: Six
  • Bathrooms: 5.5
  • Year Built: 1954
