2004 Hargrave Residence by Robert Gurney – $3.295 Million

This new listing is for the award-winning Hargrave Residence in Glen Echo Heights by Robert Gurney. If you have ever driven down MacArthur Boulevard you have seen this ultra-modern house sitting here high above the road with a view of the Potomac. The most prominent feature is the large, glassed-enclosed living room with pointed corner and butterfly roof. “The idea for the roof came from the vintage modern homes in the neighborhood,” Gurney told the Washington Post in a 2004 article about the house. The living room area is reminiscent of the space-age, soaring lines of Googie architecture. See images here.
