Situated in the tranquil, tree-lined streets of Federal Heights, this French-inspired home is breathtaking both inside and out and a magnificent ode to the notion of home. The grand entry gives way to a large main living space that's outfitted with trompe l'oeil ceilings and a dining room that holds herringbone wool wall coverings and carved wood panels. Separating the common areas from the main floor's owners' suite is a central parlor with soaring ceilings that terminates in a sun-bathed reading lounge. Our recommendation? Pick a cozy spot and curl up: the seasonal changing light is spectacular here. The main suite, hidden behind a pair of french doors, is equal parts grand and comfortable with a fireplace, sitting area, and spacious ensuite and closet. The lower level features a library, entertaining space, three large bedrooms with ensuites, and a few more fireplaces (the home holds five in all). There are tasteful touches throughout, but we're partial to the light fixtures (from Boyd Lighting and Thomas Pheasant), tailored window treatments (from Conrad Shades), and custom forged artistic railings (Sergey Sakirkin), all of which pair perfectly with the home's bevy of french doors and windows. And the exterior has been just as thoughtfully arranged, with each planter and patio perfectly proportioned. The gardens here-with mature plants situated in a thoughtful complement to the outdoor living room-are as much works of art as they are landscape, and make for an ideal spot for enjoying our lingering fall afternoons. In sum: this is one sensational spot. Square footage figures are provided as a courtesy estimate only. Buyer is advised to obtain an independent measurement.
