“The home is artfully constructed … with emphasis on luxury and comfort.” — Janet Caterson Price of McEnearney Associates
When a local interior designer purchased her Alexandria home, she wanted to renovate it in the image of homes from her childhood in southwest Florida. The result was a light-filled space with custom finishes and a saltwater heated pool, reminiscent of a tropical paradise.
“The home is artfully constructed inside and out by an award-winning master designer with emphasis on luxury and comfort,” said Janet Caterson Price of McEnearney Associates.
The home, which has four bedrooms and four bathrooms is located in Belle Haven and features 11 skylights and several large windows, allowing for an abundance of natural light.
The walls of the 4,000 sq.-ft property are swathed in custom wallpaper including paper made of linen and silk. Needlepoint wool carpeting covers some of the home’s floors.
“The homeowner … was influenced by homes she grew up in,” said Price. “Some bedrooms had fabric upholstered walls that gave the spaces a cocoon quality, so she was always drawn to recreate it.”
The chef’s kitchen is equipped with a Viking stove, dual full-size refrigerators, a custom granite sink, a separate butler’s pantry and walk-in food pantry.
“I've rarely seen a property with such distinctive characteristics, such as … custom wall coverings and built-ins throughout,” said Price.
The home is on the market for $1.85 million.
