Lust over this: A 107-year-old historic mansion in Georgetown.
This week’s extravagant real estate listing is the 11,000-square-foot Hollerith House, a mansion steeped in history which has just recently received a very modern update. It will soon be on the market for, you know, just a casual $18.75 million. But it will include absolutely everything you could ever dream of.
Constructed in 1911 by a man named Herman Hollerith, the structure's exterior façade -- as well as the basic layout -- will remain true to its original design. And while many of the details will retain their historic charm, the entire home is state-of-the-art, beautifully modern, and updated for today’s luxury living.
Note-worthy features include four floors of living space, a glass-enclosed kitchen that leads to the gorgeously tended private garden, nine bathrooms (seriously, nine!), spacious master suite with Juliet balcony, and much more. It sits on .6 acres of land, with a lawn that is ideal for entertaining and hosting outdoor parties. Of course, you see iconic views of D.C. from every corner of the house. If you want to live large, this is the place for you.
