River Park in SW

River Park is a co-op community on 11 park-like acres in southwest Washington DC. It is a hidden enclave designed by the renowned mid-century modern architect Charles M. Goodman. After 50 years of planning and development, this community has it all.

Now is the time to buy in SW before it becomes another DC neighborhood too high priced to afford.

Coveted by those who want style and function, this four level townhome is rarely available. The BEST location in the community with sunrise and sunset views. The distinct barrel roof is a design never seen anywhere else in Washington, DC!


The stunning crafted new kitchen reflects the Goodman sensibilities. It features custom sustainable bamboo cabinets with clever doors and storage. Tuscan Hills is known for its superior craftsmanship. It shows. Great slide out drawers, a desk, room for a TV,  and room for a real table too.

Other kitchen features include a super-stylish painted glass backsplash. Aptly named Serenata Blue, the light reflects beautifully. A clean Arctic White Corian counter top complements these hues. The chandelier with multicolored stained glass – a find from a Barcelona flea market – all blend beautifully to complete this sleek room.

Living Room

Barrel Roof townhomes are known for their half-moon “barrel” shaped walls and views from every line of sight. The living room has floor-to-ceiling glass doors overlooking a private patio. Perfect for the dog or some fun-filled summer barbecues before the Nationals play ball. Season tickets are a must. This townhome features cool parquet floors, perfect for mid-century styles or any style! An open staircase completes the scene.

If you prefer the arts, this home is just a block from Arena Stage. But…back to this fab floor plan.

Second Upper Level: The Barrel Roof

The top floor here has the Barrel Roof design by Charles Goodman. Front and back floor-to-ceiling windows, framed by the clever barrel, framing your sunrise and sunset views.

This fab location in the River Park Community is private and the views are treetops with views of the hardscape planned by the architect. One tree outside the upper floor bedroom window resembles a modern sculpture.
