Spring break is over and everyone is getting back to the grind and our annual countdown to summer.

This also inevitably brings the hustle and bustle of the spring market back to the real estate world as everyone tries to get their housing affairs settled before trips to the Outer Banks and Ocean City commence. Since this area is pretty much a ghost town for spring break, there are many great homes that had price improvements last week.

The most drastic price improvement I saw last week was on this extravagant home in the Peacock Station neighborhood in McLean. 952 Towlston Road has seen a $1 million price drop from its original list price. This impressive estate features over 13,000 finished square feet, a separate caterer’s kitchen, both a dry & steam sauna, cinema and game rooms, and a large bar fit for a great party.

If over the top luxury is what you are looking for, this home is for you. If you decide to buy 952 Towlston, please don’t forget to invite your favorite realtor over for a spa day and drinks. I like cabernet.

You can see more of this buzz worthy home here: 952 Towlston Road
