I Want This Washington, D.C. Mansion for $6.9M

4847 Rockwood Pkwy, Washington, D.C.I want to live in a mansion. I want to live in a house so big and with so much to do in it that I could get lost for days.

I think I've found it at 4847 Rockwood Pkwy, in Washington, D.C. Just by the measurement of bathrooms, this $6,995,000 house qualifies as a mansion: eight bathrooms and two half baths. If a home has more bathrooms than bedrooms, in this case six bedrooms, then I think it's a mansion.
Built in 2006, this four-level home has more than enough room for any family to knock around in. You might not even see each other for days in the 16,000 square feet of living space on a lot of 19,583 square feet.

The house is about seven times as large as the average U.S. home. Here are some of the details that make it so big: five fireplaces, five-car garage, 35-foot living room, library, master bedroom suite with his and her baths, theater, heated pool, cabana with kitchen, spa and massage room, and indoor basketball court.

4847 Rockwood Pkwy., Washington, D.C.There are enough rooms to keep everyone entertained. There's an indoor basketball court, although the ceiling looks low enough to prevent high-arcing shots. A game room has a pool table, bar and what looks like a zebra hide print on the floor, if you're into that sort of thing.

The listing is unclear if furniture is included in the $6.9 million price tag, but if it is, then the children will have a good time in a lower-level playroom that has a play table and little chairs -- although you'll have to stitch new names on them if your kids aren't named Clemens and Riley.

The theater on the lower level can seat nine comfortably, although the TV screen could be a bit bigger. Behind the theater is another game room, although personally I'd wall it off from the theater so the sound of Foosball games doesn't interfere with what's on TV. There's also an exercise room, wet bar, wine cellar, office and my favorite, a reading room, to keep you occupied.

The home is in the Spring Valley neighborhood of Washington, D.C., home to American University and is near the beautiful McLean Gardens.

Recently sold homes in Spring Valley have averaged $3.3 million.
