In the heart of Georgetown, surrounded by beautiful Victorian homes and cobblestone streets, lies a contemporary property with unique artistic characteristics that will make every lover of the "over-the-top" feel like they are at their dream home.
This stunning residence, beautifully positioned on the highest elevation of the original Evalyn Walsh McLean estate, captures the finest elements of contemporary design adapted for gracious daily living.
Shinberg Levinas Architects completely reimagined the home with a modern aesthetic. The generously proportioned gallery and living room are perfectly positioned for both comfortable living and gracious entertaining. Through dramatic 15-foot sliding glass doors, the stunning living room and gallery open to an impressive terrace with a pool, multiple gardens, a private courtyard, and a sculpture garden. This single-family home, built in 1955, feels like an exquisite museum with the best art and sculptures but still provides the coziness and comfort of a place to call home.
One of the most impressive parts of the house is the long pool surrounded by the white chairs and white finishes of the property's facade adorned by a bucket spilling water onto the pool. It resembles a contemporary boutique hotel in a popular European destination.
The huge primary suite on the second floor offers breathtaking views of Georgetown and the Virginia skyline. The well-equipped primary bathroom is adjacent to an impressive dressing room with built-ins and shelving. Four additional en-suite bedrooms provide comfortable sleeping quarters for family and guests. There are also six full bathrooms and one partial bathroom in the house.
This state, set on nearly a half-acre of manicured grounds, provides privacy and space to enjoy the great outdoors. A spacious two-car garage and five additional surface parking spaces round out one of the most extraordinary properties in Georgetown. The residence is a short walk from the neighborhood's favorite restaurants, shops, and parks.
The house is located at 1206 30th St. NW in Washington, DC, and listed by Michael Rankin from Sotheby's International Realty for $10,800,000. For additional information, click here.
