This home exemplifies the meaning of contemporary design. Our clients wanted something that would stand out in a community of new homes in the prestigious 1801 Foxhall development in Northwest DC. The stones for the exterior were individually cut and laid so that they provided a more modern feel. The narrow windows with stone headers and ledges add to that feeling, along with the flat wood-paneled garage door. The wood trim details throughout the home and the exquisite custom Italian tiles were all completely custom designed, along with the sleek kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities. The feeling of contemporary, clean lines are carried out everywhere in the home. And the most prominent feature for that is the wood and steel linear “zig-zag” staircase which is a centerpiece of the home. The sauna has a luxurious Scandinavian feel that works well in the home. One of the most interesting features of this home are the views from different rooms, looking towards other parts of the home. You are able to see new and interesting design features from a variety of angles, each one creating its own contemporary look.
1801 Foxhall is an enclave of 27 custom homes located off of Foxhall Road in Northwest, DC. The neighborhood is Colony Hill, a small, exclusive neighborhood of single family homes in the southwest corner of Glover Archbold Park. It consists of only a handful of streets, and is surrounded by beautiful parkland. From many of the residences, you can see the heart of Washington and our monuments.
