This pseudo-castle of a home mildly resembles the kind of abode a Barbie doll would admire, and there's nothing wrong with that. Judging from the facade alone, this lilac stucco listing is for those homebuyers who aren't afraid to stand out from the crowd—or who aren't afraid to pick up a paintbrush and give houses a makeover.
The custom-built Italianate listing is located in Bethesda and offers other unique features that set it apart from the neighborhood. On the inside, there are arched wall niches, Corinthian columns, and multiple ornate fireplaces. In one of the circular bedrooms, there is a tray ceiling with a Monetesque mural and recessed lighting. The asking price totals $1.685 million.
