As we head into the holidays, the housing market is still humming along.

I always tell my clients that winter is actually the best time to buy or sell a home because all parties are motivated. There aren’t many sellers testing the market to see how high of a price they can get or neighbors just looking at homes in case they decide to buy. These are buyers and sellers with a mission. Currently, I have quite a few buyers focused on buying a home before the new year. If you want to sell quickly, if priced right, now is a good time.

This week’s feature home has been featured in this article before. The home was taken off market and recently came back on. It’s been reduced in price by over $150,000 and is now priced below the tax assessment. This home is in Ballantrae Farms, one of the most prestigious and sought after neighborhoods in the area.

With nearly 8,000 square feet of finished space, this is one of the larger homes we’ve featured. There is an additional 2,500+ square feet of unfinished space that can be finished. Situated on a .58 acre lot, this home features a Baccarat chandelier, Calcutta marble floors and a main level master suite. Priced at $2,397,000, this home is now a steal!

To see this beautiful home or any others, you can schedule an appointment by emailing or calling me at [email protected] or 571-263-0206.

Luxury for Less features many different types of homes. Sometimes we feature homes that are extravagant beyond measure, some that are great fixer uppers, and others that are just good deals.

This article has luxury homes that have been reduced in price but vary in style and expense. This week’s home is just plain priced to sell. 614 Valley Drive SE is in one of the hottest neighborhoods in Vienna. This home is just simply big. It has over 6,000 square feet above grade and another 2,300 square feet in the basement. It’s situated on a large lot, over .50 acres, and has an assessed value of $2.1 million. It’s now priced at $1.899 million.

What makes this neighborhood so hot? This section of Vienna is very close to Tysons Corner, eliminating the need to fight Maple Avenue traffic to get to work or home. It’s also walking distance to Westwood Country Club and the Town of Vienna. The W&OD Trail is just next to Valley Drive and Wildwood Park is in the neighborhood, perfect for walking the dog or just sitting and enjoying nature.

This neighborhood has seen many large, luxurious custom homes built recently and spending well over $2 million to live in this neighborhood is becoming more and more commonplace in recent months. The best part of the neighborhood? The neighbors are pretty great. I live in this neighborhood and love the access for running, walking the dogs, and just saying hello to my neighbors.

To see this beautiful home or any others, you can schedule an appointment by emailing or calling me at [email protected] or 571-263-0206.

We’re back to McLean this week and this time we’re featuring a wow house.

This home, as well as many others featured in this column, was remodeled by BOWA. BOWA is a well-known and highly regarded design firm based in McLean. Founded in 1988 by friends from the University of Virginia, BOWA’s work can be seen in some of the most luxurious homes in the area.

BOWA has earned numerous awards including Best of Arlington-Best Remodeler, Best of Houzz for Service, Contractor of the Year-Natioanl Association of the Remodeling Industry, and Best Custom Home Builder in Washington, D.C. by Home Builder Digest. I frequently recommend BOWA to clients seeking to remodel or custom build. This week’s feature shows off their work beautifully.

6470 Kedleston Court is a stately home inspired by 19th Century Georgian Country Homes. It’s location on one of the most exclusive streets in McLean offers privacy and security. The dramatic two story entry hall is breathtaking and the wet bar and wine cellar can’t be missed. This home truly exemplifies luxury and elegance.
