Our Homes Are That Light You See From Down the Block. Lit From Within and Can't Wait To Reach

We have one of the best copywriters in the Metro Area. She really knows who OPaL is, she understands where our homes fit in this world and she knows how to convey it in words that mean something to us and probably our customers. Years ago, she sent this line of copy, that I love to this day.

"Our Homes Are That Light You See From Down the Block. 

Lit From Within and Can't Wait To Reach"

Yesterday, Greg, our architect, sent us elevations for a custom home...and they reminded me of that line of copy.

Painted brick, limited metal siding, standing seam roof, dark window 
and a good measure of stone.

OPaL Coming Soon to Riggs Street in Logan Cirlce

Having a bit of fun with our new project on Riggs Street in Logan Circle.  HPRB approved and moving forward. Look forward to sharing our super creative floor plans that only our Greg can do: nifty little reading nook in the front bay, front kitchen and a very clever master suite that takes up the entire 2nd level.

Can't Wait to See What OPaL Does on S Street in Dupont

Hard not to be excited about this historic row home on S Street in Dupont. Fun fact - the permit was issued in 1892, however the home was not constructed until 1919...very interesting delay.

O! But Wait, There's More - Unit at the Obie

We have saved the best for last - our largest flat at The Obie. It's a hard choice, however, fan favorite, Unit 1, shown below. In shades of navy, white, taupes and grey, this could make a perfect home.
Secure, gated entrance. All exterior lights illuminate at dusk.

Unit #1 - outdoor space landscaped with boxwoods, rhododendron and a pea gravel patio.
