Location: Washington, D.C.
Believe it or not, this Bauhaus-style stunner is just a few short miles from the stately mansions and general Neoclassical sensibility of Washington, D.C. Sitting on a woodsy and private 12,600-square-foot lot, the 1961 residence designed by noted D.C.-area architects Leon Brown and Thomas Wright sports the distinct flat-roofed no-nonsense look typical of Bauhaus buildings. From the back, the home transforms into a bona fide glass house, with walls of glazing providing great access to a fantastic outdoor entertaining area. On the inside, the roughly 2,500-square-foot house features 10-foot-ceilings, a floating staircase, and ample clerestory windows to send in natural light and calming peeks at the surrounding trees.
After the property sold for $1.125M in 2012, current owners embarked on a meticulous renovation that, among other changes, thoroughly updated the bathrooms and custom kitchen. The house, now asking $1.9M, includes three in-suite bedrooms, one of which opens to a private patio.
