High atop the native magnolia trees sits a quaint two-bedroom apartment housed in the former home of Jazz Age celebrities F. Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald. This historic home houses the only dedicated museum to F. Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald in the world. The family lived here from 1931 until 1932, writing portions of their respective novels, “Save Me The Waltz” and “Tender Is The Night,” during their time here. After the family moved, the home was subdivided into four apartments. The current owner uses the funds to allow them to run the museum and feature a unique part of the American literary history.

This is one of my favorites for its unique modern design and great features. This 6,000 square foot house has 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms with plenty of room for additional beds if needed. The space is stunning due to its attention to detail and imaginative design. Some of the unique features and amenities include a heated swimming pool with underwater window into the living room, two koi ponds, 25 foot stone waterfall, 20 foot ceilings,10 foot projector TV, and a game room with a pool table, ping pong table, poker table, dart board, and board games. There’s also 7 outdoor areas each unique in their own way from sunny, shady, covered, comfortable, and even one has a gorgeous city sky line views of Roslyn and Rock Creek Park and the tip of the Washington Monument. They provide fresh sheets, blankets and towels, soap, shampoo, and conditioner. Divided by 6 or more, this could be a great family or friend getaway, but plan ahead as there is very limited parking (two spaces).
