Real Estate Voyeur: Washington DC

We can expect a decent rate of high end real estate turnover here in the Washington DC area with the change of Presidential administrations.  Surely all these rich folks that Trump is nominating to his cabinet will need a local place to call home.  Our Nation’s capital and its suburbs are known for being a pricey, but I don’t think Rex  Tillerson will have any problem dropping almost 10 Mil for this little pied-à-terre I spotted while trolling   Check this place out, it’s really something.

This home, located in DC’s swanky and historic Georgetown section, home to many political types, has a classic yet clean exterior front.  The first thing that caught my attention is the windows framed in black.  I love that what must have previously been a Mansard roof is a wall of 36 window panes.














The stairs are amazing, sleek, and are backlit against the wall.  Current owners have used the foyer and stairs as a perfect spot for displaying art.











So much perfection in this kitchen, the clean white European style cabinets, wide plank Scandanavian look floors and the best is that it all opens out to the backyard with those HUGE doors!  What a perfect way to make a plus out of what is normally a minus (small city yard).











This light fixture in the bedroom is extraordinary.











It comes with a 3 car garage and an extra dedicated parking space, virtually unheard of in the city!  And who doesn’t need a glass elevator?












And I’ve saved the best for last….talk about making the back yard feeling larger….yeeessss!
