Wacky Velvet Green Penthouse Condo Almost Gets Its Ask

New, 5 comments


The swank sixties decor must have been what sealed this deal (because it can't have been the seven thousand dollar a month HOA fees). This two-level condo in The Towers has found a buyer after two short months, which makes George Washington University very happy. The school happens to be the owners since it was bequeathed to them by the heiress Estelle Gelman in 2009. It only went on the market this past January and closed last week for $1,900,000—just $50,000 shy of its asking price. The seven bed, seven comes with an internal eleveator, marble from top to bottom, and some of the most unusual decor the tame denizens of DC have ever seen. Every room seems to have a solid color dominating the space, including a small circular room in all white with a golden rope trim.
