Last week in What X Buys You, UrbanTurf looked at homes in the area for $160,000. This week, we head to the other end of the spectrum.
Mediterranean Villa-Style in Potomac
Built in 1999, this six-bedroom, 8,701-square-foot home has an oversized footprint and an over-the-top style. Designed as a Mediterranean villa, the home is full of dramatic light fixtures, dark wood, interior columns, and walls and ceilings that are painted like a blue sky with floating clouds. The master bedroom has a pitched ceiling full of exposed beams, a fireplace, and a curved and cushioned window seat. The pool in the back completes the Mediterranean vibe.
- Full Listing: 9 Great Elm Court, Potomac, MD (map)
- Price: $2.750 million
- Bedrooms: Six
- Bathrooms: Six
- Year Built: 1999
- Listing Agent: Christine Koons-Byrne, Long & Foster
Colonial With a Carriage House in McLean
With 4,854 square feet, this Northern Virginia option isn’t quite as massive as the one above. Built in the Colonial style, the home uses traditional materials like stone and wood on both the exterior and interior. There are two master suites — one on the main floor and one upstairs — in addition to four other bedrooms, and a separate guest house a short walk away from the main house. Other interesting spaces include a cushy media room on the ground floor, a screened-in porch facing the backyard, a cabana near the pool, and a hot tub and gazebo.
- Full Listing: 8523 Georgetown Pike, McLean, VA (map)
- Price: $2.875 million
- Bedrooms: Six
- Bathrooms: 6.5
- Year Built: 1985
- Listing Agent: Lynne Gorsage, Long & Foster
Two-Story Corner Penthouse in Adams Morgan
If this Adams Morgan penthouse looks familiar it is because we were borderline obsessed with its sister unit for the last few years. The most impressive space of the unit is the living area, which has a two-story ceiling with floor-to-ceiling windows. Located on a corner, the two walls look south and have views of much of DC, including the Capitol and Washington Monument. A balcony off the living room also looks out on the scene. The icing on the cake for the listing is the roofdeck, which has a jacuzzi and a firepit.
- Full Listing: 2424 18th Street NW, Unit R-3 (map)
- Price: $2.9 million
- Bedrooms: Three
- Bathrooms: 3.5
- Year Built: 1917
- HOA fees: $1,120/month
- Listing Agent: Jeffrey Mauer, Washington Fine Properties
