I was having some issues with the real estate section so here’s one I got emailed yesterday – it’s from the same developer behind the Lionel Ritchie house. This one is located at 2710 Brandywine Street, NW. The listing says:
“From every vantage point, every room, every moment, the experience of this home offers a lens into the forest; a home that ushers in the surrounding natural habitat.
Built during an era known for being more boisterous and avant-garde, the angular architecture of 2710 Brandywine maintains an affection for mid-century modern design with open living spaces highlighted by the openness to nature, clean-lines of both refined and natural materials.
The land parcel reaches from Brandywine to Broad Branch as part of an exclusive, little-known pocket cul-de-sac of 20 custom homes. It is a green and lush environment with mature trees and a perfectly haphazard cultivation of undergrowth. The intentional gardens are delicate and balanced. Slate stairs lead to the main entrance from Brandywine, while access to the garage and rear entrance is from Broad Branch.”
