The latest installment of What X Buys offers some house envy courtesy of two DC-area listings priced in the $7.5-8.5 million range.
Over 10,000 Square Feet in Northwest DC
In the Berkley section of DC, this over 10,000 square-foot updated six-bedroom listing offers a bit of everything, and an elevator to get to everything. Past the circular driveway and just inside, the entry hall extends straight from the front to the back door, with pillared entryways offering a peek into the living room and the stone panel fireplace that has sets of paned french doors on either side. These doors open out to a skylit, screened-in outdoor living room with another fireplace and kitchenette. The backyard beyond has a heated pool, sport court, treehouse, and a patio with firepit, all with stone steps and garden areas interspersed. The formal dining room has a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, and the family room shares a wetbar with the sunroom-like kitchen on the other side, which also has a huge black walnut breakfast bar island, a herringbone backplash, Virginia soapstone countertops, and a built-in office area. The above-grade lower level has a kitchen-sized bar with seating and access to a wine cellar, as well as a gym, and a wood-walled recreation room with fireplace and arched doors out to the rear patio. The garage is heated and has space for up to six cars courtesy of a lift system.

Sports, Window Walls, and Entertainment in McLean
Right off the cloverleaf interchange in McLean, this newly-built 10,000-plus square foot house sits at the end of a gated driveway on almost two acres. Wide windows are stacked along the façade, and the open-concept main level has a living area with a built-in media wall containing display nooks, cabinets, and a fireplace. The kitchen similarly has a fridge concealed amid a wall of cabinets, along with a double stovetop and tangram-like backsplash opposite a sizeable breakfast bar island. Both the living and dining areas have access to the rear patio, as does the owner's bedroom, which shares a window wall feature with the other four bedrooms. A gallery-like upstairs landing overlooks the foyer, and a couple of the bedrooms upstairs also have access to an outdoor terrace. The above-grade lower level has an indoor/outdoor kitchen of sorts, with a breakfast bar inside and a covered entertainment area and grills outside. The lower level also has a separate gym and a virtual golf area. A putting green is outside next to the pool deck, complete with colorful lights and cabanas. This house also has a five-car garage.
