Staying Afloat

Summer 2009 – The local real estate market is holding its own, says Long & Foster Real Estate’s Gloria Rose Ott.

Washington, DC and its environs are once again hip, coinciding neatly with the increasing appeal of long-term stability in residential real estate. There are pockets and regions of the country that have suffered tragic losses in terms of job cuts and house values, but our metro area is regaining some footing and much-needed equilibrium. Exhale!

Thus, with some degree of the restored energy and hope that President Obama has brought us, we present these properties currently on the market that will make you say, “That’s a beauty!”

Such is the case with Franklin Haney’s pristine home on MacArthur Boulevard NW. Once a legislative assistant to former Senator Al Gore Sr., the real estate investment and property-development mogul believes in the vibrancy of downtown, and his current home expresses that. The property, with its reservoir views and landscaped, terraced gardens, truly sparkles—$2.499 million buys you great location and quality, as well as striking lines. For more information on 4643 MacArthur Boulevard NW, contact Maggie Shannon at TTR Sotheby’s International Realty, 202-333.1212, mashannon10@verizon.net, ttrsir. com.

Venture downtown to 1918 17th Street NW, where agent Jennifer Wellde of Long & Foster has a treat in store. On a lively corner between Dupont Circle and Adams Morgan sits a majestic Victorian owned by Dal LaMagna, founder of Tweezerman. With four levels, eight fireplaces, and an eye-popping roof deck, you can entertain in style or enjoy the paper alfresco on Sunday mornings. The property features furnishings and interiors that rival many museums and may be available as part of the sale. For more information, contact Jennifer Wellde of Long & Foster Real Estate, 202-944-8400, jwellde@usa.net

The Other White House

Fall 2008 – As many homes linger on the market, Gloria Rose Ott tells us about a few select offerings that have a little something special going for them.

IT’S TIME TO ENJOY the crisp fall weather with a brisk walk in the countryside, followed by a relaxing jaunt online to peruse the residential real estate listings. These days, more than 80 percent of buyers and sellers surf the Web to choose agents or househunt on their own by taking virtual tours of houses on the market.

Thanks to the Internet, you can browse through an array of award-winning kitchens, sneak a peek at a CEO’s garage, or take a gander at a salon where a fundraiser was held for a presidential candidate, all without leaving your home office.

Here’s your chance to explore a Victorian farmhouse with a glamorous contemporary addition. Owned by Trammell Crow executive William Grillo, the house is a steal at a neat $2.4 million. The property is listed by John Eric of Long & Foster Realtors. E-mail john.eric@longandfoster.com or visit johneric.com.

In addition, you can linger over a North Arlington brick Colonial—also listed by John Eric, at $2.5 million— with a spacious living room in which a fundraiser for Barack Obama was held. Owner Art Collins is a former treasurer of the Congressional Black Caucus and his wife, Sela, is a top-notch PR executive.

Finally, there’s the famous house on Hickory Hill listed by Washington Fine Properties. The five-plus-acre 19th-century McLean farm was home to the late Robert F. Kennedy and his late brother, John, before him; Ethel Kennedy, still owns the property. With its price now reduced from $20 million to $12.5 million, this is one beautiful bargain. Indeed, this “white house” is almost as storied as the one on Pennsylvania Avenue.

For more information or to suggest a listing to include, e-mail Gloria Rose Ott at homestar@earth-link.net. Gloria Rose Ott is a multimillion-dollar top real estate producer in the Middleburg, Virginia, area.

Homes on the Horizon

Summer 2008 – The election isn’t the only thing heating up in the Washington region, says investment consultant Gloria Rose Ott.

REAL ESTATE IS NONPARTISAN. We all want it, we all think we deserve it—and as so many learned in 2008, we can’t all necessarily afford it. After all, this was the election cycle during which Americans learned the hard way that a house is a home—not a bank. But there’s still a lot of talk going on. Senator Hillary Clinton launched her campaign with “Let’s chat.” Might she be the nominee today if she’d followed it up with “about real estate…” (and yes, healthcare, war, education, etc.)?

Could a billion dollars in campaign spending be the match that lights a new real estate firecracker in the capital area?

Should John McCain prevail, less relocating would be necessary if the approximately 7,000 Bush White House appointees (each and every one is listed in the Plum Book, by the way) decide to stay put for another four years. A terrible legacy would result if they bought high and sold low! Some might decide a little change of scenery, perhaps a move to Annapolis, would be enough to signify their independence.

Should Barack Obama be the victor, local real estate agents may see an upturn. The aforementioned Bush staffers would move back to Texas, California, and Maine, and a new crop would come to the Beltway and environs. Polish up the Craftsman style bungalows in the burbs, spiff up the town lofts, and make bicycle lanes and dog parks for all!

One thing is clear: There are plenty of stately homes currently available within commuting distance of the White House. For example, Forest Mills, a Quaker-built brick estate on 69 acres, currently owned by former ABC News correspondent Bettina Gregory, is on the market for $2.95 million. Or, for a mere $2.7 million, Butchers Run, a Quaker fieldstone residence that was once the home of Oscar winning actor Robert Duvall, could be appealing.

Cast your ballot: stone or brick?
