If you want to live in a one-of-a-kind piece of art, then this is the home for you! Perched high on a wooded lot overlooking the Potomac River, 5300 Mohican Road stands out amongst the homes of Glen Echo as a stark juxtaposition and iconic symbol of avant-garde contemporary architecture. Equal parts function and pure artistry, this masterclass in design was the brainchild of visionary architect Robert Gurney, FAIA, and the recipient of numerous international aesthetic awards. Harmonious with both itself and the surrounding landscape, the home is honed from intersecting spatial volumes and a diverse palette of materials adaptive to changing light and shadows, establishing the structure as one with the site. Entry is provided via a striking elliptical tower clad in lead coated copper, nestled within a rectangular, mahogany-clad mass tapering into the recognizable glass triangle. Within, the eye is drawn upwards by the sweeping maple staircase and perforated aluminum bridge overhead, while light floods in through the skylight above. The whimsical interiors are a wonder in circulation and inviting the outdoors in. An open living and dining space is surrounded by three sides of glass and topped with an upturned butterfly roof. Such design enables truly stunning scenery encompassing roaring waters, radiant sunsets, and twinkling Tysons Corner skyline in the distance. Verdant greenery envelops the space, establishing complete privacy and tranquility. Brazilian cherry floors emit a warm glow in the natural light and reflect the wooded surroundings. Various metals, board-formed concrete, Venetian plaster, exotic woods, and glass come together in a beautifully contrasting yet harmonious fashion, instituting a distinct identity within. Separated by a tempered-glass panel, the commercial kitchen’s custom mahogany cabinetry houses Viking, SubZero, and Thermador appliances. The primary suite occupies its own wing with private office, double-sided wood-burning fireplace, sumptuous spa bath with custom millwork and concrete counters, as well as a double dressing room. Three additional bedroom suites are privately tucked away. Luxurious amenities abound, including a state-of-the-art media room, professional fitness center with steam shower, sauna, and indoor/outdoor hot tub, and a fully automated audio-visual suite. A Bluestone terrace is built into the hillside adjacent to the glass living room, providing sheltered outdoor living and enhancing the relationship with the inside. 0.54 acres of land offers ample cushion and a serene natural retreat. A one-of-a-kind offering which truly cannot be replicated, 5300 Mohican Road is one of the Capital Region’s most special residences.
