If you've ever gotten the feeling that sometimes people design their abodes with films in mind, get ready to have that feeling again. This spot on 3411 Woodley Road NW which just went on the market for $2.4 million has bookshelf in a circular alcove in their ceiling. While the rest of the house doesn't necessarily look like a scene out of Beauty and the Beast, it does have five bedrooms, three bathrooms, two gardens and a two car garage, which is sort of palatial for city standards. Also, there is plenty of room for more books on shelves at a standard height. The current owner is National Geographic Society's Explorer-In-Residence, Wade Davis.
