Most Expensive Homes on the Market: A $2.5 Million Green Design in Virginia Square
This place has a solar-heated saltwater pool.
In a neighborhood of traditional homes, this whitewashed modern design stands out. And not just for its clean-lined look and top-level finishes: Built in 2007 with planet-friendly functionality in mind, this 5,100-square-foot home in Arlington’s Virginia Square also showcases a passive solar design that involves such features as a photovoltaic solar energy system, insulated floor slabs, teak floors, and an eco-concious permeable driveway.
Here’s the rundown on the high-end interior specs: five bedrooms and six bathrooms—including a master suite decorated with grasscloth wallpaper and Kravet drapery and featuring a fireplace, two separate dressing rooms, a “luggage room,” and a master bath with both a cast-iron claw-foot soaking tub and a mahogany-paneled walk-in shower. Elsewhere, there’s an elevator, a library, a butler’s pantry, a conservatory with a heated brick floor, and a mahogany-floored screened porch. Outside? A flagstone terrace with a wood-burning fireplace overlooks a garden space. And a 500-square-foot poolhouse (complete with an exercise studio, a kitchenette, bathing facilities, and a steam room) flanks the home’s pièce de résistance—a 33,000-gallon saltwater pool heated by solar energy. The home went on the market less than two weeks ago and is listed at $2.5 million. Head to Washington Fine Properties for the full tour.
