Details & Specific Points of Interest

Having visited together many of the client’s favourite hotels in London and New York they engaged Design by Uber to bring many of their favourite styles and finishes to their new mansion in the River Road area of Potomac, an exclusive community of luxury residences in Virginia just minutes away from Washington DC.

The property is sat in an elevated position at the end of a long driveway where the detailing we had produced for the ironwork on the front doors and windows is the first impression of the grandeur that lies within. On opening the door it is clear that luxury finishes abound, from the water cut motif flooring in the grand hall, a design inspired by London’s Corinthia hotel lobby to the mother of pearl wallpaper that embellishes the walls.

Bespoke finished dining chairs bring a bold identity to the dining room with it’s silk wallpaper and beautiful drapes, all finished and shipped by us in a seamless approach to property installations abroad. A level change by way of two steps of solid marble guides guests down to a wonderful lounge area with matching grand marble fireplace and TV lounge off.

The kitchen was designed to cater for the client’s several children, with dining room adjacent, laid out with groups of tables for friends, guests and nannies.

The master suite was designed to be a haven for the clients and so we set about creating a private gym, bar and lounge as well as dining area and of course huge dressing room facilities and bathrooms. Silk carpets, bespoke headboards and cut mirrored walls adorned the spaces.

Outside, vast terraces with outdoor kitchens surround the huge pool with its rows of fountains and views over the tennis court, basketball court and the design even included for a petrol go-carting circuit.

An indoor pool provided leisure facilities for winter months and a full basement as well as theatre provided every child’s wishes for activities.
