If modern design gives you wood, then get prepared for a rush of blood. Built in 1944, the 5 bedroom masterpiece was designed by architect Charles M. Goodman (who also designed National Aiport and this other house overlooking the Potomac), has been featured in the the city's architectural guide, and probably took a forest to construct. As if the house's tasteful design wasn't enough art, there's a large, metallic ribbon-esque sculpture in the atrium evoking movement and a strong juxtaposition to all the wood and natural elements surrounding it. (We're not sure if it comes with the modern abode.) No matter where you are in the house, nature is never too far with the many expansive windows allowing Alex greenery to pretty much come right inside. But if you want a bit of seclusion on the 1.5 acre property, take yourself (and maybe a friend) to the sauna and keep that blood pumping. All this for $1,750,000.
