Not sure who has the cash for this one, but its fun to look at anyway. This AIA award winning ultra-modern home by Robert Gurney is perched on a wooded slope in Glen Echo Heights overlooking the Potomac River. The 4/6.5 home was built to occupy the footprint of the former Craftsman-style home on the .82 acre site so as to disturb the land as little as possible.The exterior features wood siding and coated stainless steel while terrazzo flooring and aluminum highlight the open interior space.
