This gorgeous home listed by Washington Fine Properties is a true hidden gem overlooking Rock Creek Park. Built in 2010, it sits on a nearly 18,000-square-foot lot and is currently listed for $11.5 million, down $2 million from the original $13.5 million listing price. Natural light abounds in this modern marvel, particularly thanks to the floor to ceiling windows in the two-story great room with 180 degree park views. Everything about the home screams luxury from the eight-car garage to the custom ebonized white oak cabinetry and Gaggenau ovens in the kitchen, the 21-seat media room with a star light pattern fiber optic ceiling, the owner's suite with dual water closets, spa shower, soaking tub and make-up and hair salon.

Peek inside an $11.5M mansion that's hosted some of the biggest names in entertainment

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in a home often frequented by celebs? Well, the future lucky owner of an $11.5 million manse in the Massachusetts Avenue Heights' neighborhood will get to experience that feeling.

The home of BET's CEO and Chairman, Debra Lee, has been on the market since December 2016, and has certainly seen its fair share of A-list entertainers come and go. And we have to imagine Lee's home might rival some of their own, with its award-winning contemporary design by Marshall Moya Design. From the two-story great room with 180 degree views of Rock Creek Park, to the infinity edge saltwater pool, the media room with a starlight pattern fiber optic ceiling, a built in salon, multiple private terraces and soaring ceilings throughout, the modern pad is just screaming to be on an episode of MTV Cribs!

“The residence is the ultimate 10,000-square-foot oasis floating above Rock Creek Park," said listing agent Marilyn Charity. "It is the ultimate five star retreat and yet you are three blocks from the Woodley Park metro stop. The city is accessible when you need it to be and blissfully remote when you don’t. This is for a very special buyer.”
