The Best Listing of the Year (For Well-Paid Lobbyists)

by Mark Wellborn

This week UrbanTurf is taking a look back at the best that DC’s residential real estate market had to offer in 2009. From the best deals to the best trends to, of course, the best listings, we believe we have sussed out the cream of the crop.

The Best Listing of the Year (For Well-Paid Lobbyists): Figure 1

Back in late October, we came across a five-bedroom contemporary home tucked away in Massachusetts Avenue Heights that made us wish we had a few more figures in our annual salary. While the home’s proximity to Rock Creek Park was a plus, it was the layout and history that sold us. The garden was designed and personally built by the former head gardener of the British Embassy. The property itself features an expansive living room with a fireplace, a deck overlooking a large garden, a huge table-space kitchen and an enormous master bedroom with a huge wall of windows that looks down to the trees outside. And don’t worry about parking for your guests; the property has spaces for 6 to 8 cars. More details and photos below.
