Robert Gurney-Designed Foggy Bottom Condo Asks $985K

New, 1 comment

Last August, a co-op renovated by Washington, D.C.-based architect Robert Gurney landed on the market in the Watergate South complex with an asking price of $3.3 million and HOA dues that cost a whopping $5,394 a month. Gurney is known for his glassy award-winning designs, such as this cube-shaped Bethesda single-family home and this converted former naval officer club in Dupont Circle. Similarly to the previous listing, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo in the Watergate South development offers floor-to-ceiling windows, a warm color scheme, and a gourmet open kitchen with high-end stainless steel appliances. Over the past few years, this listing has been fully renovated multiple times. When it was sold for $385,000 in June 2012, its drab interior featured wall-to-wall carpeting, parquet flooring, and an aged balcony with stained concrete. Now, there is marble flooring inside, and a spotless concrete balcony outside. The kitchen also offers custom cabinetry with a sleeker, more modern look. Instead of the plain, white walls, there is now wood paneling with a red accent wall. Gurney renovated the listing once before after it was sold for $875,000 in September 2014. The interior then was also vastly different with much more chrome throughout. Some of the highlights of the condo in its current form include its multiple walk-in closets, sun-filled rooms, and recessed accent lighting throughout. The spacious balcony also offers views of the Potomac River, while the development provides amenities like 24-hour concierge service, a doorman, a heated pool. The location isn't too bad either as it is within walking distance to the Foggy Bottom Metro station and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The condo is on the market for $985,000 with $2,539 monthly HOA dues.
