    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 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". Over the past eight years, this exceptional residence has been meticulously restored to its original grandeur. 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 sweeping views over Washington and beyond to Virginia. Adjoining the grand salon, the elegant dining room 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 staff quarters completes this level. Ascending the grand staircase or via the private elevator, the second-floor family quarters include 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. Four reserved parking spaces are included in the sale. The Towers offers a complete range of amenities and services including 24-hour front desk and door attendants, valet parking, fitness center, sauna, gourmet market, hair salon, tennis court and swimming pool. With an ideal location just minutes to the downtown business district, and the shops and restaurants of Georgetown, Penthouse 1215E is unquestionably the most unique and glamorous residence currently offered for sale in the Nation's Capital.
