This gorgeous custom home in DC’s beautiful Spring Valley neighborhood is conveniently located to shopping, dining and easy access to downtown.
“This has been a wonderful family home where we’ve created happy memories for many years,” said Michael Seay. “It’s a grand, but very comfortable home with amazing natural lighting from its many windows – now it’s time for another family to create their own memories there and love it as much as we did.”
The home was expertly designed by owner, Frances Miller Seay, who is the granddaughter of the founder of W.C. & A.N. Miller Development Company, known for building both commercial properties as well as several of the most prestigious communities in the D.C. area for more than 100 years. The company also had a real estate sales division that was sold to Long & Foster Real Estate in 2007.
Built by W.C. & A.N. Miller, the home was constructed with the finest materials, superb craftsmanship and attention to detail – truly exemplifying the quality that the company has been known for since 1912. As you arrive at the home, you’ll first notice its extraordinary curb appeal with manicured landscaping and a welcoming red front door surrounded by leaded-glass windows.
You’ll greet your guests in style in the gracious foyer, with elegant turned staircase, stately molding and enticing views into other first-floor rooms. The open floor plan was cleverly designed to flow seamlessly from one room to another. A wide arched opening leads you from the foyer to the elegant living room with large windows and a fireplace – the perfect place to serve drinks before dinner. Your family celebrations and dinner parties will be remembered in the connecting dining room under the twinkle of the chandelier.
