    Gorgeous. Just gorgeous. This goes on my list for when I win the lottery.

    Is there a reason why the listing states that the seller can accept or reject any offer? Isn’t that always the case?

      I was going to ask the same thing…

  • JBR

    This is a great house, would love to live in it. Why are there two full-size kitchens? Which part is the new addition?

    • Maddy’s Mom

      @JBR, the big open space you see in the photo above is the addition. In the exterior photo, it’s the smaller section at left, to the left of the lattice fence. There’s a ramp to an outside door in the addition around the corner to the left. When the addition was built, the owner left the original kitchen, the one with the sage green cabinets in the listing photos, in place in the original section of the house and uses it as a spare pantry.

    I spy a barn door – gasp!

    • I Dont Get It

      Where? I looked through the pictures twice and didn’t see one!

        5th picture. It’s a sliding barn door looks like.

        • I Dont Get It

          OOOOOh…thanks! I guess I liked the interior so much I mentally overlooked it.

  • Philippe Lecheval

    It’s like stepping into a Pottery Barn catalog. Gag.

    • Caroline

      Agree. I can’t tell if the house is truly hideous or just sort-of ugly and badly staged.
      And that backyard! You have so much outdoor space, why not do something with it? My teeny tiny rowhouse backyard is far more inviting and functional.

        Ditto. I think this house is really odd, and I find nothing that makes me want to spend the $3.2M that I obviously don’t have. Weird bedroom loft over the living room. Maybe I’m just not a Waldron Faulkner fan….

    I LOVE this house! As for GDoN, I don’t know properties in this price range to judge. But if I had the money (and wanted such a big place), I’d be interested!

    I worked for the related Avery Faulkner who had a Georgetown architecture practice for years. Old family home & $.
