All the latest neighborhood news from Curbed DC...
GEORGETOWN—Above you is the living room of the largest and most expensive listing for a condo ever in the District of Columbia and we have a first look inside. The current owners bought several units to create this seven bedroom/seven bath luxe pad that is now on the market for $7,777,777. #sevensevens
BRIGHTWOOD—This week's Under 300K is a 3 bed, 1 bath with only a creepy basement to detract from the house. The rest of the place? Sunny and bright.
BETHESDA—A very contemporary house monikered "The Jigsaw Puzzle" sold earlier this summer for a shade under $2M. We have a look at its abundant angles and another creation by the same architect—an outdoor meditation room suspended from a steel frame.
DUPONT CIRCLE—A six bedroom mansion that should really be turned into a multi-family building just came down in price to $3.75M. We've got the photos.
DISTRICT—Perhaps the most interesting buildings in DC are the ones that were never built. Later this month the National Building Museum opens their exhibit Unbuilt Washington that shows the drawings for buildings/monuments/bridges that never made it past the planning stages and we have a gallery of the displays. A dolphin hotel is the weirdest among them.
CURBED—Next week is our first annual Renters Week across the Curbed sites and you could win a month's rent. All you need to do is send in your worst rental horror story to our tipline by Sunday at midnight and we'll put it up for a vote. The winner of each city site goes for a final round on our national site and the winner gets up to $2,500 of their rent paid by us.
