A commanding brick Colonial Revival mansion has hit the market in Washington, D.C.’s affluent Georgetown neighbourhood for $13 million. The stunning residence with magnificent scale and proportions includes five levels totalling 13,400 finished square feet, major entertaining areas, 8 bedrooms, 10 full baths, 2 powder rooms, an elevator, a 60′ indoor Bromide lap pool, lovely private garden, private balconies and parking. It is perfect for large scale entertaining with spacious public rooms and wonderful flow. It also easily accommodates a large family with multiple guests and staff. The master suite encompasses an entire floor with an elegant reception area, his and her baths and dressing rooms, and an extraordinary panelled library – all with elevator access. Everything is light-filled, including the gym with views of the Potomac River and Georgetown.
Since its evolution differs from the basic models of Federal and Victorian architecture, it has a singular look and layout without losing any of its classic and traditional feel. The Edes House was built in 1907 and was dedicated under a special act of Congress as a home for Georgetown widows. This fine example of Colonial Revival architecture was painstakingly restored as a spacious and elegant single family home and featured as the 1998 Decorator’s Show House. Purchased by the current owners, the house was redesigned and renovated by Thomas Pheasant to the highest level of finish and comfort. Since then it has been perfectly maintained and continuously updated, making it as fresh and current as it was after this 4-year renovation. The Edes House is on the market for $13 million with James Peva of Washington Fine Properties.
