Sue and Andy Hill, a local mother/son Realtor team with McEnearney Associates, scored a major real estate coup. They listed a most impressive stone property at 4600 Linnean Avenue, NW, which also happens to be this year's Washington, DC Design House. The list price is $3,850,000.
Each year, the DC Design House group picks a beautiful house and brings in a bunch of local interior design professionals to work their magic. The re-designed house is then open to the public for several weeks, and the admission fees are donated to Children's Hospital, and the show home's owners usually put it on the market.
Like most of the Design Housess, this one is pretty special. It has a lot that is over half an acre - huge by DC standards. It has over 5000 square feet above grade and a swimming pool where you can get relief from the humid DC summers.
Andy and Sue are smart enough to know that there are challenges around showing buyers and agents the Design House, so they made the best of things. Between 4 and 6 this afternoon, they held a brokers open, giving their colleagues a chance to see this lovely home without standing in long lines to get inside. Oh, and it was free, although I feel like I need to send a check to Children's Hospital.
They couldn't make it a wine and cheese thing, because there in no food allowed. But they didn't have to feed us. The house was delicious, and it won't make one fat!
