Own Walkable City Author's $1.25M Geometric Home


You may have missed this large triangular home's moment in the sun on the front cover of Washington Post Magazine's Fall Home & Design Issue in 2008, but you probably haven't missed it if you've ever walked down this stretch of Florida Avenue. This geometric anomaly is the work of local architect and Walkable City author Jeff Speck and now the four bedroom house actually for sale. The brick tower at the home's corner isn't even the only notable exterior feature of the four-story house which has floating balconies and windows that protrude at severe acute angles. The interior is just as impressive with elements like a steel stairway. What's more, the Specks use some of their wall space pay homage to a local institution down the street. There's a giant chalkboard in their kitchen saying "990 Club Welcomes" which is seemingly a nod to nearby esteemed music venue, The 9:30 Club. There are more photos of the $1.25M home after the jump.
