Situated among mature oaks in suburban Washington, DC, this estate home was inspired by mid-Atlantic country houses of 18th century America. Here, the fieldstone walls of the center block contrast the delicately detailed Ionic ordered doorway. Entering the reception hall, the view toward the loggia and gardens beyond unfolds through columns that frame the living room.
The classically-detailed formal rooms are flanked by wings of a more casual aspect housing the family spaces. The kitchen’s screened porch and the library’s sunroom transition to outdoor terraces on the garden side of the house.
