MASSACHUSETTS AVENUE HEIGHTS is a truly special Washington neighborhood notable for its dense foliage, foreign embassies, and magnificent mansions. The lavish estate of unsurpassed splendor opens dramatically to a stunning foyer with a white marble floor, a rotunda featuring a bedazzling skylight crowning a grand staircase with bronzed wrought-iron banisters, and gold-leafed crown molding. Other highlights include a spacious library that leads to a media room with a theater system and wet bar, a hand-painted ceiling mural adorning the formal dining room, and a commercial-style kitchen with breakfast nook which overlooks the terrace and lushly landscaped pool deck. In addition to the master suite, this prestigious and enchanting palace interweaves four additional ensuite bedrooms, a fitness room, and wine cellar. The exterior showcases hand-carved French Chablis limestone from Quebec, exquisite fluted Corinthian columns, and a pair of late 19th-century bronze-and-glass lantern sconces that appropriately appoint this majestic masterpiece.
