As the beautiful John Legend once said, "Go to the penthouse floor (let's go, let's go, let's go)." And for $3.49 million, you can go to the penthouse every single day!
This Logan Circle penthouse was custom designed for its current owners in 2013 by renowned modern architect Robert M. Gurney, and it's the first time it has gone on the market since. The 2,800-square-foot unit is one of 90 condo units in the seven-story Metropole building, completed in 2008, and recently dropped in price by $500,000.
The current owners designed the unit for large scale entertaining, thus the 900+ square feet of terrace space. The dual-level penthouse features two terraces on the upper level: a private terrace off the master bedroom (which has a dressing room with custom closets) and a landscaped 780-square-foot terrace equipped with a Viking gas grill and engineered for a spa if desired. The upper level also has a kitchenette, and the Metropole building offers guest suites for residents' visitors.
On the main level, a suspended mid-century modern fireplace dangles from the 21-foot ceiling, floating architectural orb lights change hue in the living room and a glass overlook above offers expansive views of the city. Another fireplace is found in the dining room, with floor-to-ceiling windows, and a designated "art wall" has special art lights. Cooks will love the chef's open-concept kitchen, featuring black granite countertops, Miele appliances like the gas cooktop with commercial-grade hood and griddle, deep fryer and dual dishwashers, a sub-zero refrigerator and Wolf double ovens. The jewel-toned, climate-controlled wine room can hold close to 300 bottles, and the den/office space has Mondrian-inspired glass doors, built-in bookshelves and a a well-concealed Murphy bed pulls down when needed.
