Project Profile

Fresh Take

A timeworn, vintage home in Cleveland Park’s historic district needed significant TLC—and a keen eye. Designer Martha Vicas, who was searching for new digs of her own, eagerly stepped up. […]

Double Vision

A  narrow peninsula in Queenstown, Maryland, is a magical spot for admiring the Eastern Shore’s estuary environment. Homes situated on this enviable spit of land are treated to panoramic vistas […]

Calm Oasis

From their first trip 25 years ago, Bill and Megan Goeller were smitten by the Chesapeake lifestyle. The Delaware-based couple made yearly visits for a decade—boating on the bay, fishing […]

River Idyll

Meandering up to an agrarian property in Centreville, Maryland, a pea-gravel driveway intentionally sets an even slower pace. Visitors are meant to savor the pastoral scene along the way, as […]

State of Grace

Snowy white textiles, collectible art and carefully curated antiques don’t usually mix with the patter of little feet, but in this Bethesda home the elegant setting doesn’t hinder playtime one […]

Fresh Approach

About 15 minutes after seeing it, a couple house-hunting in Bethesda was ready to make an offer. The 1993 abode was uninspiring from the outside—but inside, the potential was obvious. […]

Balancing Act

Nestled on a tree-lined street off Dupont Circle, a stately Beaux Arts townhouse captured the hearts of a couple looking to trade up from their nearby condo. The 1915 brick […]

Mountain Magic

It’s often the natural order of events for empty nesters to jettison a larger family home for a smaller, more manageable roost when the kids go to college. Not so […]

Watergate Aerie

Stylistically, Washington’s Watergate complex has always exhibited a split personality. The cutting-edge 1960s project by Italian architect Luigi Moretti came with a futuristic, curvilinear exterior and curiously fussy interiors. Following […]

Waterfront Oasis

After traveling a mile through the woods, the car arrives at a berm blanketed in mountain mint. A concrete tunnel in the slope leads to a weathered metal door. It […]

Fresh Take

Vintage row houses, those quintessentially Washington dwellings, can hide all manner of surprises. Case in point: a circa-1900 dwelling near Dupont Circle whose classic, red-brick façade conceals streamlined interiors ingeniously […]
