5 D.C. homes for sale with beautiful wine cellars

Perfect for stocking hundreds—even thousands—of bottles

From outdoor pools to wood-paneled libraries, Curbed DC has featured a wide variety of homes on the market that are filled to the brim with luxurious amenities. Now, it’s time to explore the one amenity that many are sure to get excited for: wine cellars.

This particular amenity certainly isn’t for everyone. (Personally, I’m more of an IPA fan than a Merlot drinker). This amenity is also usually reserved for fairly pricey homes, and that is certainly true for the properties in this list.

Below, take a look at the five most beautiful wine cellars currently up for grabs, ranging in prices from $2,575,000 to $18 million.

$11.5 million • Massachusetts Avenue Heights

Behold, the mansion of a celebrity, more specifically the CEO and Chairman of Black Entertainment Television (BET) Debra Lee. This listing first landed on the D.C. market in December 2016 for $13.5 million and has since lowered in price.

The listing was designed by D.C.-based architecture firm Marshall Moya Design. It spans roughly 11,000 square feet with a curved facade, a 20-foot tall great room, and a full theater and media room.

In the totally stunning wine room, there is a table for seating guests as well as transparent glass shelves with LED lighting. Throughout, there is what looks like stainless steel.

In this contemporary property, there is a sauna, two-car garage, and this wine cellar so beautiful that one could just ogle at it forever. The light grey open shelves offer enough space for hundreds of bottles.

The 6,157-square-foot property last sold for $935,000 in November 2015. It first landed on the market in August 2017 for $2,675,000 and has experienced two price chops since then.

At the moment, this is the second most expensive home on the D.C. market, underneath Peggy Cooper Cafritz’s former Kent home, which is asking $22 million. The entire property spans over 15,000 square feet with half an acre of land to spare.

Along with a putting green and two garages, this Wesley Heights abode also comes prepared with a wine cellar. The listing doesn’t specify how many bottles the cellar can accommodate, but it should be more than enough for any wine enthusiast.
