Villa Style Homes in Washington DC Metro Area

When discussions of home styles in Washington Metro turn to Villas, there's one common denominator that is widely accepted – these homes are big and they're usually expensive. The term goes back to ancient Rome, describing large country homes built for the elite ruling class. Over time, Villas simply became known as huge sprawling homes from Rome to Tuscany, so large that they often resembled a self-contained village. Villas in metropolitan area aren't quite that large of course, but they are usually larger than your average Washington mansion and that's saying something.

Villa Style Homes in Washington DC Metro AreaWhile Villas originated in Italy, the style spread to other parts of Europe particularly along the Mediterranean. They also took root in Central and South American during the Spanish and Portuguese Colonial period, easily translating to large-scale farms and plantations in Argentina and Brazil. Over time, the style migrated up along the pacific coast and into other parts of the southwest. Of course, the subject at hand is Washington metropolitan homes and architecture, not other countries and not California.

How did Villas become part of the local landscape? Wealth is one factor, as is longstanding European design influences. The Washington metropolitan area has always been a melting pot after all, from its early settler days to modern era development booms. These days, however, luxury homes for sale cost a lot more than in days of old. 

Browse through Washington Metro real estate listings that feature Villa as a property type and you'll see more than one style of architecture. Local villas can be evoke Tuscan, Mediterranean, Spanish, French Countryside or English Gothic design and can also come in with modern interpretation. The latter is not unique to this country – modern Domotic Villa design in Italy is very popular at the moment. One of the more traditional hallmarks of villa design over the years has been the presence of enclosed courtyards or gardens but this isn't always the case with local versions. What you will usually get is a lot of square footage and a large number of rooms.
