Decor Inspiration: Luxury Real Estate in Washington

Decor Inspiration: Luxury Real Estate in Washington

Before we dive into the details of this

exquisite real estate

property in DC with decor inspiration and

interior finishes to make your lovely

head spin and your heart break, allow me to confess.

I have been disciplining myself as a blogger and poster

of lovely tidings to post every day, and though

I just shared 64 gorgeous designs from Eleanor Cummings,

here I go again posting a second time today!



What can I say?
What’s with all these posts with a trillion
pretty images of interior design?

After all, sometimes less is more, oui?

Is it like a Kardashian selfie disease thing?

I think sometimes more is more

(especially when lovely can be in short

supply in other realms of daily life),

and maybe I am finding my blogging rhthym.

A social psychology answer to why would

probably include something about a

need for order and control when the

climate is distressing or chaotic.

But things are perfectly calm in our

culture and country right now, oui?

I have problems…

Another confession.

My family knows I do this weird thing when we’re in the car,

and I get anxious (whether it’s my husband’s racecar driving or I spot a deer we’re about to send to heaven) and can’t form

English words yet need to caution everyone in the car.

That nonsense babble sounds something like:

CHADACHADACHADA…

HOLD ON TO YOUR BUTTS!!!!!


Yoda meme gif wacked are you breed you should not
Um. Too late.

I’m not proud of the crude expressions escaping

me in distress, yet if I’m honest, it is my unique

flavor of profanity when the adrenaline spikes,

we seem destined to meet our maker,

or it’s critical I warn every earthling in earshot to

brace themselves (or apply the brakes!).

(I want to change. No one in their right mind

wants ‘butts’ to be their last dying word.)

I swear I’m getting to the point. Stick with me.

So when I saw the real estate listing for this Washington D.C.

property pop up online, my reaction was on a level of

high CHADACHADACHADA alert.

Here is what I learned from the real estate listing (Sotheby’s)

for the property for sale at 3030 Chain Bridge Road NW,

Washington D.C.:

It is a five part regency styled

stucco home and a collaboration between

Jones Boer Architects, Banks Development,

and Arentz Landscape Architects. 


Modeled after early 18th century English precedents

by such renowned architects as Sir John Nash,

the new 13,500 square foot house is a careful study

in symmetry, balance, and proportion. 


Finely detailed, load bearing Indiana limestone porches

and accent details give the home a stately charm

and presence on the street. 

Oh, yeah.

And it is listed for $22 million.

Yep. The most expensive home in D.C.

The interior spaces feature hand carved stone mantels,

custom millwork trim, cabinetry and details ensuring the vocabulary of the exterior flows through to the

interior to create a seamless elegant experience

that is timeless in style.


Rarely if ever will one find a home constructed

and designed with unparalleled materials and workmanship

as this masterpiece.

Extraordinary landscaping, pool and separate pool house complement this stunning property.

Before we take the dream tour of this

luxury real estate out of this world property,

let’s review some of its particulars:
