In 1960, visionary real estate developer and philanthropist, Melvin Gelman, built The Towers Condominium overlooking Glover Archbold Park in Northwest Washington. Determined to create the most spectacular penthouse residence, in the city, rivaling the finest apartments in New York, Mr. Gelman carved-out over 9,000 square feet on the top two floors of the East Tower for his personal residence. In the decades that followed, Mr. Gelman and his wife raised their family and hosted lavish cultural and philanthropic events for Washington's elite. In James M. Goode's book BEST ADDRESSES, this glorious residence was later described as the largest Penthouse in Washington, D.C. that featured a grand foyer with a curved staircase and drawing room where the ceiling commands 16 feet in height. Notable guests often referred to the penthouse as the "Palace in the Sky". Guests arrive through double mahogany wood doors to a soaring entry hall with a sweeping staircase centered under a magnificent crystal chandelier. Beyond the entry hall, an elegant salon with 16 foot ceilings centers on a fireplace and a wall of glass revealing an expansive terrace and with views looking over Washington and beyond to Virginia. Adjoining the grand salon is an elegant dining room that easily accommodates 24 guests and features a richly appointed 19th century Chinese screen which reveals ample storage for crystal, porcelain, and linens. The adjacent media room reflects an Art Deco theme and is equipped with a separate wet bar to provide further options for large-scale entertaining. Reminiscent of the finest private clubs of New York and London, the mahogany paneled library provides an elegant retreat centering on a fireplace with custom crafted built-in shelves. An exceptionally large professionally equipped kitchen, breakfast room, impressive powder room, laundry room, 2 bedrooms, and one full bath completes this level. Ascending the grand staircase or via the private elevator, the second-floor family quarters includes an expansive primary suite with stunning views of the National Cathedral, two separate marble baths, and two large dressing rooms with abundant closets, built-in storage and private balcony, two bedrooms with en-suite baths [one bedroom with a private balcony], one additional bedroom and one full bath, second laundry room, family room with a private balcony and second kitchen complete this level.

This impressive Mediterranean-style residence is ideally located on one of the most sought-after streets in Wesley Heights. Architecturally inspired by the traditional villas in Tuscany, this exquisite home has been completely transformed to mirror that of classic examples in Italy. Implementation of exterior elements such as clay roof tiles, hand-applied stucco walls, and custom wrought-iron details provide the residence with a distinct Mediterranean attractiveness, elegance, and aura. Arches are used both inside and outside the home to impart a sense of history and tradition in graceful fashion. Award-winning Barnes Vanze Architects designed the residence with no detail overlooked and the exceptional new construction of brick and block was completed in 2000. The plan and interiors were developed to offer a high level of comfort, elegance, and utility for a relaxed modern lifestyle. It was built in the style of the 1920s with modern conveniences including electric shades and curtains throughout. The main level of the residence is illuminated by an abundance of natural light from large windows, which is further magnified by the 11’ ceilings. The gracious entry foyer has limestone floors and seamlessly transitions to the reception foyer with quarter-sawn white oak floors, and then to the generously proportioned formal entertaining rooms. The south-facing dining room has a limestone fireplace and beautiful lacquered walls, complemented with elegant crown moldings. The remarkably-scaled formal living room has Venetian plaster walls all in shades of white, limestone floors, and an awe-inspiring limestone central fireplace. Three sets of French doors with arched transom windows provide direct access to the rear terrace and garden, making this an exceptional space for entertaining. An adjoining sunroom with four additional exterior French doors further enhances the gracious flow of the room. There is an incredible neighboring family room/library with an antique marble fireplace and a lovely beamed ceiling and custom built-ins dressed in lacquer. The well-appointed gourmet kitchen has notable reclaimed Siamese flooring from Thailand and distinguished glass countertops. There is a large center island, custom cabinetry, a chef’s grade Subzero refrigerator with freezer drawers, and a top-of-the-line Viking appliance package. Exterior access from the kitchen to the rear terrace is easily accessible via two French doors. There is also the added convenience of a nearby mudroom/butler’s pantry with additional storage, refrigerator drawers, an ice maker, and washer and dryer. A powder room and the elevator which accesses all floors complete the main level. A stairwell with custom wrought-iron railing detail leads to the second level. The luxurious primary suite has Venetian plaster walls, beautiful moldings, built-ins, oversized windows, brilliant sunlight, and a large dressing room with dual walk-in closets. The spa-inspired primary bathroom is white Thassos marble and features dual vanities, a frameless glass shower, and separate soaking tub. There are two additional bedroom suites on this floor, both with private en-suite marble and tile bathrooms, as well as a private office. The third floor has two more sizable light-filled bedrooms positioned nearby the hall bathroom, which has beautiful marble floors and walls. The lower level of the residence has high ceilings and offers an impressive media room, a staff bedroom suite with a full bathroom, a gym, an additional full hall bathroom, and a large laundry room with built-ins. The exterior grounds of the residence provide beautiful hardscape, as well as professional landscaping.
