DC8619239 - Exterior (Main)

Ah I love this house. It was a house porn post back in 2011 (was going for $3,450,000 then.) It’s back on the market:

“Without doubt, a fine & unique house in one of the most private settings in Washington. Designed by world-acclaimed architect Travis L. Price as his own residence, we are proud to offer a home which defies the prosaic and usual parameters in residential architecture. One can only understand this space by experiencing it. A work of art in a most jewel-like environment.”

Farewell formstone…

A reader reports:

“Saw this on Friday. They are chipping the formstone off the old Fringe building on New York Ave. NW with a hammer and chisel.”

Ed. Note: Capital Fringe is now located at 1358-1360 Florida Ave, NE.

And thanks to a twitter reader for reminding me that this was also A.V. Ristorante Italiano’s space that closed in 2007. Here’s a couple shots from flickr:

This is the corner that faced some neighborhood opposition.

Their website says:

“Fifty Three – Thirty Three is at the crossroads of Connecticut Avenue and Military Road, in the heart of Chevy Chase. Here, an urban sophisticated lifestyle is wedded with residential luxury, establishing the essence of crafted, modern design. Every room, every kitchen and each garden eases and inspires—so you can breathe in all of life’s little happenings.”

Anticipated opening Summer 2015.
