Matt Cheney of Washington Fine Properties gives a tour of a new build home inspired by European and Californian design in the Palisades, Washington, DC.


  • High-End builders are breaking from the pack and building fashion forward homes. Today we are in Washington’s Palisades neighborhood to tour a new build home inspired by European and Californian design.
  • While away at Fashion Week in Europe the creator of this designer home was inspired to add pops of color and chic gold detail to this elegant work of art.
  • This seven (7) bedroom, six (6) full and one (1) half baths home is over 6,800 sf and sited on a 6,700+ sf lot. The home was designed with site lines throughout. I have counted five (5) so far here on the main floor.
  • These sightlines are complimented by picture windows and showcase the home being in harmony with the outdoors. Notice the tree in the front of the home.
  • The home was also designed with each room being in proportion with another. Notice how from the living room to the dining room to the kitchen that each room compliments each other in proportion.
  • Master bedroom has a private wing, great site lines, with a sitting area or office, and a combination master bath and walk-in closet to die for.
  • The rear garden and green roof of the garage again demonstrate how the home has a harmony with the outdoors. Can you see yourself enjoying this space while drinking your morning coffee?
