Stately Historic Residence + Retractable TV Screens: VA/DC Dream Homes

VIRGINIA/DC – This week’s featured homes in Virginia and DC include a gorgeous five-bedroom mansion in McLean with serene landscaped grounds and a stately single-family home on one of Georgetown’s most desirable streets.

The McLean estate allows residents to enjoy summer barbecues in a covered outdoor kitchen. A saltwater pool with water fountains will keep residents cool this summer, and they can relax in front of a TV with automatic retractable screens.

The corner residence in Georgetown is available for the first time in over half a century. The home features sophisticated period details, moldings, high ceilings, four fireplaces and an elevator serving three of the four levels. The historic residence is exceptional for entertaining with its formal rooms.

For homebuyers, mortgage interest rates are currently 5% for a 30-year fixed mortgage. A year ago, the rate was 3%.

According to a recent Wall Street Journal article, it’s worth considering the rate of inflation before deciding to wait. A year ago, inflation was 2.6%, while today it is 8.5%, its highest level since the early 1980s.

The Wall Street Journal article says, “Given all this, should you buy now or fear that if you do, house prices will crash? Buy now. Homes, like most assets assets, retain their real value during high inflation and have done much better than most of these assets.”

Patch has assembled a collection of beautiful homes currently on the market in DC, Northern Virginia and Fredericksburg. You can find property photo galleries in the linked listings in each article.
