After 100 years of mystery, fear and cold war, a former police state is now open to the American public. I am referring to Russia with all the architectural jewels of the Zars and Emperors from the time of Peter and Catherine, the Great. The new Russia is now a capitalist country, very Americanized, and all the jewels of the past have been reconstructed and/or renovated.
San Petersburg, in particular, is a museum in itself with more than 500 palaces and churches. The roman and greek architecture that still influences our construction design in the northeast and south in our country has a new dimension when influenced by the east orthodox culture. Botero took some pictures for our clients.
Delivery of a home is a joyous occasion not only for the new owners of our most recently delivered custom homes but also for all the members of the Botero Team. We had the distinct privilege of delivering a beautiful mansion overlooking the Potomac River in Alexandria. The mansion boasts three levels equaling 10,831 sq ft, a pool and gorgeous landscaping. The final cost per sqft of heating area was $141.

The delivery of the second home in 2013 was very exciting, not only for the new home owners but for all of us at the Botero Team. It was move-in weekend for the owners. This house is a French-Georgian model with 8,286 sqft in three levels located in Mclean Virginia, one block outside the beltway, 20 min from the Nation’s Capital.
The final cost per sqft for this magnificent Mansion was $126, “All-Inclusive” except the lot. We started excavation exactly one year ago after we designed the house, helped the owners to find the lot, negotiated on their behalf, made all the feasibility studies during the study period, obtained the bank loan and processed all permits from the County.
Congratulations to the proud owners and their family. We at Botero Homes want to deeply thank the owners for giving us the opportunity to be their builder and wish them the best in their new home!!
