2724 Chain Bridge Road NW
UrbanTurf usually stays away from publishing rankings or lists…except at the end of the year when we look back at the best that DC’s residential real estate scene had to offer during the previous 12 months. So, this week, we are looking at not only the best, but the most intriguing and peculiar things that came across our radar over the course of the past year.
We deemed this contemporary, window-filled home, which UrbanTurf featured as This Week’s Find in June, as the top listing of the year for the well-compensated folks in this town.
Glass Walls and a Swimming Pool
The striking exterior of the six-bedroom home is constructed mainly of glass and cedar siding and is topped with a green roof. Like a proverbial glass house, the views into and out of the home are mostly unobstructed. Luckily, the home sits on a half acre of land along Battery Kemble Park, so there are plenty of trees to enhance the privacy.
The interior has one very large amenity: a 40-foot long indoor pool at the base of the ground floor. (If a pool isn’t enough, there is also a waterfall and a sauna in the home.) The pool is surrounded by walls of glass and capped by a skylight, so the ceiling reaches all the way up to the top floor. The other rooms in the house, some of which look down into the pool area, are also open, but hardwood floors and built-in shelves add some warmth and solidity.
While UrbanTurf is quite fond of this home, it has not yet found a buyer and has dropped in price from the original list price of $2.9 million. More photos and details below.
