Exorbitant House of the Week, Gilded Edition

DC8363384 – Exterior (Front)

What does it take to sell a five-bedroom house for $4 million? It helps if everything's covered in gold.

Of course, the nine bathrooms at 2962 Chain Bridge Road NW in Palisades don't hurt, nor does the sauna or the wine cellar that no reasonable human could possibly fill. But it's the baroque touch that sets this house apart. (Perhaps not enough: The $3,995,000 price tag actually represents a discount made last week after the seller couldn't unload the house for $4,395,000.)

Take a look around. Be sure to note the golden horse's head, light fixtures, picture frames, drapes, and makeup mirror. The suit of armor, unfortunately, is not included with the house.
