In the sought-after forested enclave of Forest Hills—minutes from the White House, Kennedy Center, and the nation’s foremost cultural centers—a private world of breathtaking views celebrates the bucolic beauty of adjoining Soapstone Valley Park. Magnificent settings bathed in light reveal at the heart a spectacular family room adorned with a dramatic cathedral ceiling monitor of curly maple. Adjoining are a state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen, second pantry, and breakfast room. A gallery with coffered ceiling spans the back of the house. The seven bedrooms and seven and a half baths incorporate a tranquil master retreat with his-and-her baths and closets as well as a terrace. From here, lush grounds filled with birdsong lead to a swimming pool, poolhouse, sports court, and shared tennis court.
