We Took A Peek Inside One Of D.C.’s Most Exclusive Homes
If we had $8.75 million dollars to spend in one of the best neighborhoods in Washington, D.C. – you'd better believe that this four-story, white-brick mansion would be at the top of our list. Built in 1875, the home has approximately 8,610 finished square feet – with a 250-square-foot garage, wine cellar, storage area, and mechanical room. The exclusive property is surrounded by beautiful, stately trees which overlook a private courtyard, terrace, and a pristine pool area. Inside the home is a stunning mix of color, detail, wooden floors, and antique embellishments. Oh, with that closet? We'd like to stay awhile.
Located in Washington, D.C.'s highly desirable East Village, this sprawling and sophisticated white-brick mansion is on a prominent and private corner lot.
This may be our favorite room in the home, and not just because it has gorgeous, wood-paneled walls and an elegant fireplace. Tall windows flood the library with natural light, and inset shelving makes room for dozens and dozens of your favorite books. Grab a cup of coffee, curl up on the couch, and spend the ideal Sunday afternoon relaxing in this luxurious space.
The Family Room
Connected to the Breakfast Room is this charming family living space – not to be confused with the parlor or living room. With deep wooden floors and high ceilings, we think this would be the best spot to gather around the Christmas tree and gaze out at snow on the terrace.
This bright, cheery space has been updated with stainless steel appliances.
The Breakfast Room
The Dining Room
As with most older homes, you won't find a modern, open floor plan in this stately mansion. Instead, you'll find a classic formal dining room, with colorful walls, floor-to-ceiling windows, and detailed crown moulding.
The Living Room
Antiques look right at home in this 14x18-foot living room. It has oversized doorways, a marble fireplace, and plenty of seating for when you inevitably play Southern hostess to holiday guests.
One Of The (Many!) Bedrooms
It should come as no surprise that this detached Georgetown townhome has nine incredible bedrooms (including staff quarters), 8 full baths, and 3 half baths. Many of the bedrooms, like this Moroccan-inspired space, feature fireplaces and neutral walls – so you can personalize as you wish.
The Dressing Room
Y'all – this is a massive closet. "The Dressing Room" is located just off of the home's master suite, and is a 20-foot-long space for you to twirl around in Mama's vintage dresses. The perfectly polished cream doors and mirrored vanity would make any woman feel like royalty.
The Exercise Room
No need to sneak out for an evening jog when you've got an exercise room right downstairs. Located on the lower level with the staff quarters, this mirrored room is a fun perk for visiting guests.
The Wine Cellar
The home's lower level, which has finished staff living quarters, is home to this seemingly hidden wine cellar. Keep your bottles of vino safe and climate-controlled in this rustic, bricked space.
The third and largest of the home's "living spaces," this expansive parlor has 13-foot ceilings, wooden floors with inlaid details, paneled walls, and French doors going out to the terrace by the pool.
Connected to a private courtyard, this in-ground pool is the perfect setting for an outdoor dinner with friends. Or, if you're not up for a few glasses of wine in the moonlight, we think it'd be completely acceptable to have your girlfriends over for margaritas in the summer.
