Calling all minimalists! This week's dream home is perfect for someone who likes a soothing, zen environment and plenty of natural light.

It isn't every day that you come across a contemporary treasure like this. This week's featured property is located at 4101 Linnean Avenue NW in the coveted Forest HIlls neighborhood. The house has seven bedroom, seven bathrooms, and two powder rooms on a half-acre lot. 

Walk in to an expansive foyer dominated by huge picture windows and sky-high ceilings.

Inside, the living space is wide open and perfect for entertaining. The wood floors and intricate panels are simply exquisite.

The kitchen is a minimalist's dream with its sleek counters and cool, white cabinetry. Don't be fooled though, you have every top-of-the-line appliance at your fingertips. Just beyond the center island is a breakfast nook where you'll enjoy intimate family meals.

The upper-level sport court is an unexpected surprise. Can't you just imagine shooting hoops here after a long day? You could also easily convert it into something else if basketball isn't your thing. Lay down some gravel paths, get some potted trees, and a raised-bed organic garden would look beautiful out there!

Despite its modern aesthetic, the deck has unlimited potential as a cozy outdoor gathering spot. With the grill, bench seating, and mature shade trees, it's clearly going to be where everyone hangs out on the weekends. 


The spacious yard is divided with low stone retaining walls. All you need is a firepit and some Adirondack chairs for some serious relaxing. What's on the other side of that treeline? Rock Creek Park!

No D.C. luxury property is complete without dedicated parking. This home comes with a two-car garage and large driveway for extra vehicles.
