Details: This 16,000-square-foot estate sits on one of DC’s most prestigious streets in the leafy Spring Valley neighborhood. The design was inspired by a home in the Hamptons that once belonged to the Guggenheim family. Both are considered “French eclectic” and made of natural stone, stucco, cobblestone, and clay.  

The floorplan features a two-story foyer, walnut floors in the living room, his and her master bathrooms, a library, a wine cellar, an indoor basketball court, a spa with a sauna and steam room, an exercise room, a home theater with stadium seating, and a game room. Outside, there are two- and three-car garages, a heated pool, a hot tub, and a pool house with a full bath and kitchen.

Several foreign countries have looked at the home as a possible ambassador’s residence. They would be in good company—Rockwood Parkway is also home to NBC’s Tim Russert and Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth and power lawyer Brendan Sullivan.
