This modern masterpiece is ideally situated on one of Washington's most coveted streets. With five bedrooms, five full baths, and three half baths spanning over 7,800 square feet, this custom residence is both an understated and luxurious retreat in one of the finest locations in Washington. The striking yet functional architecture reflects the design talent of German architect, Roland Broll. With views overlooking the Potomac River, the residence has been professionally landscaped, including a Zen garden designed by Shin Abe and David Mazur. Additionally, the gardens feature a heated, black bottom ionized pool and subtle LED lighting. The exterior of the house features a timeless stucco finish and a roof with a 100-year lifespan that requires no maintenance. Stepping inside, the house is anchored by a stunning, custom Italian staircase which seems to defy gravity and seamlessly connects the main level with the upper floors. Floor to ceiling glass windows on four sides infuse the home with natural light. Custom Bartel doors, recessed lighting, and bespoke millwork further distinguish the flawless interiors. The sleek and spacious kitchen opens to a comfortable family room with a gas fireplace. The kitchen overlooks the pool and Zen garden and is equipped with lighted Leicht cabinets and built-ins custom-crafted in Germany, a Gaggenau cooktop, steam oven, and professional Miele appliances. The bathrooms and pantry feature luxurious, Italian cabinets by Pedini. Upstairs, the primary suite captures inspiring views which change with each season. The breathtaking primary bath embraces private views of both the river and Virginia and includes a luxurious soaking tub and an oversized shower with Grohe rain dance bath fixtures. A second full bath and two spacious dressing rooms further enhance the primary suite. Adjacent to the suite, an expansive study with an adjoining bathroom and floor to ceiling windows overlooks the pool and garden. Three generous bedrooms with en-suite baths complete the second level. Downstairs, a study or game room is flooded with natural light from an oversized window. Just beyond, a media room offers a discrete retreat and accommodates ample seating. Two generous storage rooms and a safe room are also located nearby. Not to be missed, a luxurious, 2000-bottle wine cellar with a vintage-view racking system, LED lighting and full temperature and humidity control complete the long list of amenities on this level. The lower level, main level floors, and baths are finished in timeless, Italian tile. The house features a water filtration system and an EVR system to balance humidity and temperature. Throughout the residence, the construction quality reflects the finest commercial standards. A separate, two car garage provides additional storage which is easily accessible from the rear gardens. Rarely does a residence reflecting such exceptional architecture, quality, and location become available in Washington.
