Created by DC architect/developer in close collaboration with the Commission of Fine Arts, this just-completed 2000 square foot, 3-level condo lives like a single-family home. The masterful expansion and transformation of the original one-level 1950â€™s rambler into a two-unit, side-by-side work of art is nothing short of astonishing. The result: a state of the art, highly efficient minimalist design which maximizes space and flow. Enhanced by an array of natural materials and brilliant architectural elements, the interior is awash with natural light offering high ceilings and an open floor plan. Stunning, large-scale commercial windows bring the lush outdoors in while ensuring a quiet, peaceful interior. A nod to its nautical inspiration, the entry level boasts ocean-like aquamarine concrete flooring, reclaimed wood accents, and a 57-degree angle glass corner â€śbowâ€ť. The airy living and dining areas, urban sleek quartz and stainless kitchen, and seamless access to outdoor spaces make for dazzling entertaining. A sculptural focal point, the custom steel and red oak spiral staircase provides passage to two additional levels which feature soothing acacia hardwood floors. The homeâ€™s vibrant mid-level offers one of two primary suites with gorgeous attached bathrooms and walk-in closets, a second bedroom with a dual-entry bathroom, and a laundry room. Gracing the uppermost level is a phenomenal ownerâ€™s suite offering exceptional treetop views, a spacious and endlessly versatile loft (office, den, bedroom, etc.) and a pull-down stair to a potential future rooftop terrace. Outside, charred wire-brushed Yakisugi cypress siding, rusted industrial steel trim, and original brick combine to create rare beauty and longevity. Exterior amenities include an entry patio, an enclosed tiered rear deck, and generous lawn use in the public space. Two off-street spaces in the private driveway make parking a breeze. Located at the entrance to Rock Creek Park in a tree-lined neighborhood setting near quaint restaurants, Historic 16th Street Heightsâ€™ bus routes, and two metro stops, this is an urban oasis. Welcome home to Black Pearl Condominium, a must see for admirers of modern architecture.
