Friday Dream House: A Chic Darryl Carter-Designed Mansion in McLean

Super-sophisticated interiors are the draw at this $5.95 million five-bedroom.

At $5.95 million, we’re not joking when we call this a fantasy home—one peek at the interior will tell you why we love it. Positioned at the end of a private lane in McLean, this five-bedroom was restored under the supervision of award-winning designer Darryl Carter, who set it up in his signature neutral aesthetic. The result? A stunning modern-traditional home that highlights Carter’s tastefully dramatic flourishes, including deeply hued wood floors, plenty of clean, crisp white, and exquisite architectural detailing—elaborate wall paneling in the office, the family room’s arched French doors, and a marble-and-white bath. Naturally, the Carter-selected furniture is practically design perfection, too. Beyond that, it’s also got manicured grounds, a beautiful pool, a charming guesthouse, an outdoor pavilion, and a private putting green.

Take a look below, then go to TTR Sotheby’s to get the full scoop.
