Love ogling historic mansions that have been renovated with modern amenities in mind? Check out this high-design home in Washington, D.C. The eight-bedroom, 11-bath property is located in Wesley Heights, an oasis for D.C. elites northwest of downtown.

The stone and stucco house was constructed in 1930 in the Tudor style and features long brick driveways and impeccable park-like landscaping on a half acre lot. A 2016 renovation by Jones Boer Architects modernized the 12,000-square-foot residence, rebuilding the family room and kitchen to add a glass partitioned terrace that overlooks the gardens.

Large windows let in plenty of light in the formal living and dining rooms, and the home features herringbone hardwood floors, six wood-burning fireplaces, and some rooms with grass cloth wallpaper.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a mansion without a few over-the-top amenities, too, and this home has them in spades: a 950-bottle wine cellar, formal library, his-and-her master bathrooms, a movie theater, exercise room, pool, and two-bedroom, three-bath pool house with kitchen and spa. Interested? 4400 Garfield Street NW is on the market now for $9,750,000.
