Forest Hills, Estate of the Day
Today's home is in the quiet neighborhood of Forest Hills in Washington DC. This seven-bedroom home was built in 1927 in a Spanish Eclectic style which shows in the curving iron front door metal work. The home combines Mediterranean style with a classic touch shown in the graceful lines of the home. The home's muted cream-colored palette creates a soft impression. Large public rooms and both a chef's kitchen and a service kitchen make this home a natural for entertaining. It belongs to Washington news personality Barbara Harrison Pyle and some of her Emmys are on display in one of the bedrooms. The home is on over an acre of land that includes a swimming pool. It is listed at $7.5 million.
