During the 1940s, this Kalorama property served as a Naval Officers Club. In the 1990s, the home was later divided into two condos, each 2,000 square feet. At the time, the half-circle layout of the home was “a confusing burden.” Thankfully, with architect Robert Gurney’s help, he was able to reconfigure the home in order to make the layout clearer as well as more well-lit.
The Robert Gurney website further details his renovation in how he gutted one of the units to the masonry bearing walls in order to provide an open living configuration and in order to increase the sense of spaciousness. A small section of the terrace was removed and replaced with glass to allow more natural light into the below-grade living area.
Now, the listing is up for grabs for $2.95 million with three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms across 3,100 square feet of space. Some of the biggest highlights here include its floor-to-ceiling windows, private terrace, and wine cellar.
The listing agent is Bob Mathew of Long & Foster Real Estate.
