Built in 1996 by a stone mason whose ancestors helped build the Washington National Cathedral, this Spring Valley home sits on a wooded hillside overlooking Glenbrook Road. The foyer features a heated limestone floor and both the living and dining rooms—which open onto the front terrace—have fireplaces. The wood-paneled library has floor-to-ceiling windows, and the study has a built-in desk with room for two work stations and plenty of cabinets. The breakfast nook is one of the prettiest places in the home—it’s set in a circular alcove just off the kitchen, looks out onto a colorful garden, and has skylights and large windows that flood the space with light. The home also features an exercise room and a mirrored dance studio.
