Polished marble floors, interior columns and a foyer with a sweeping curved stair rail and cloud-painted dome bring unmistakable elegance to this Washington home. The 10-acre property features an expansive list of amenities, from a theater room and library to an exercise room and elevator. Neutral walls throughout create a harmonious palette.
The curved back of the sofa in this Mediterranean-style living room thoughtfully echoes the gentle curve of the stairs in the adjacent room. The dark wood of the doors and exposed ceiling beams grounds and further dignifies the space.
Unfortunately, the condition of the original stairs was such that the stairs themselves could not be repaired, but the original configuration was kept intact and the original curved handrail was able to be salvaged. The new iron railing was "built around" the original banister.
