View Photo Gallery: The Washington Post’s picks of local distinguished homes on the market.

This week’s featured property is home to more than 100 paintings, sculptures and other pieces of art. The house was built in 1996 to accommodate the owner’s eclectic art collection, which is displayed throughout the Chevy Chase home.

“You open the front door and there’s an 80-foot gallery in front of you,” said Jonathan Taylor of Sotheby’s TTR. “There are all these pieces of art and about 10 skylights that flood the house with light.”

The main floor of the home, which includes the living room and dining room, are on the top level to allow for maximum sunlight, Taylor said.

The five-bedroom house is on the market for $1,995,000.
