Built alongside The Potomac River in Marwood, this home is eclectic and down-to-earth, mixing classic and modern, new and old. The present owners traveled the world with internationally-acclaimed interior designer Barry Dixon for two years searching for inspiration.

Throughout the home, plaster walls are painted in a palette of warm Tuscan colors. The dining room is dreamy and romantic, an ode to candlelit suppers amongst the groves.

The music rooms offers a wide bank of windows overlooking a conservation area. Across the foyer and adjacent to the music room, a gentleman’s library was added where an octagonal, coffered plaster ceiling lends the room both instant intimacy and grandeur.

The drama of the home is continued in the 24’ tall family room. Unconventional yet urbane, it is centered on a two-story fireplace wall of large concrete grids that skillfully conceal media equipment behind.
