Picture 11Washington D.C. is known for its various large museums, from natural history to aeronautics, but sometimes its the smaller ones that make the most impact. One such place is the Hillwood Estate.

The former home of Marjorie Merriweather Post, the heiress and eventual owner of Post Foods, features the most comprehensive collection of Russian imperial art outside of Russia and a world-renowned collection of eighteenth-century French decorative art and furnishings. The collection ranges from Fabergé eggs to Beauvais tapestries to Sèvres porcelain.

Call and make a reservation to see this gorgeous Georgian home that used to be known as one of Washington’s most extraordinary estates. It sits absolutely stunning on top a beautiful hill. If you have seen enough of the artwork and the house, walk through the 25 acres of gardens and greenhouses. Built for one of the wealthiest socialites, this estate is a truly unique experience.
