Originally two houses, This Week’s Find is now one massive home in Dupont that offers some pretty wild features.

Owner Doug Jefferies, who founded Results Gym, acquired two properties along Q Street in Dupont Circle at separate points over the last decade. The house he recently put on the market is the combination of those two homes, connected via a rooftop pool.

Jefferies first purchased a carriage house tucked away in an alley off Q Street, where he lived in the basement and started his gym out of the main level. He later acquired an adjacent property and combined the two to create a four-bedroom, five-bath home, which has a foyer with a 25-foot waterfall (yes, 25 feet tall), an office that overlooks the living and dining rooms and an outdoor 2,000 square-foot roof deck and terrace where the pool is located. Jefferies also runs Mission Results, a non-profit organization focused on aiding orphanages in Haiti, and the home has served as a fundraiser venue in the past for the organization.

The house has a number of interesting features including an outdoor shower off the family room and a six-camera security system, but none is probably more unique than the British telephone booth elevator that runs to all levels of the home. The property also has four parking spaces (two indoor and two outdoor) and is wired throughout with a sound system and control boards that monitor lights, the fireplace, TV, security system and front gate.
