This week’s featured house, a five-bedroom, $6.5 million Colonial Revival in McLean, was built by renowned local builder Eugene J. Cullinane and decorated by one of the Washington area’s top-tier interior designers, Darryl Carter.

Cullinane built the house in 1997. When the current owners bought it in 2007, they put in a new kitchen and new bathrooms and redid the master closet area. They also hired Carter, who has designed some of the best addresses in Washington.

“It is all done in neutral tones, very sleek and sophisticated,” said Penny Yerks of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty, who, with Michael Rankin, is the listing agent for the property.

Buyers have the option of purchasing the house furnished.

Situated at the end of a private street, the 5,617-square-foot home sits on nearly an acre. It has five fireplaces, a wine cellar, a swimming pool, a guesthouse, a Bang & Olufsen media and sound system throughout, an exercise room and a private putting green.

“It’s a great family house,” Yerks said.
