He’s got the list you want, but didn’t know existed. For Jeff Wilson and his dedicated Life At The Top Team, it’s all about helping discerning clients find the ultimate Washington penthouse experience.

As Wilson told The Georgetown Dish, “For penthouse connoisseurs there hasn’t been an accurate way to find them until now. With our hidden penthouse list, we scan every listing in every building one at a time to identify the true penthouses. Not just the right buildings, but also the best offerings in those buildings that match one’s desire to live at the top.”

Clients and friends gathered Tuesday evening to enjoy wine, art, food and that penthouse view … and celebrate the launch of Life At The Top at the exquisite art-filled residence of Evelyn and Philip Avery.

Evelyn Avery began selling art from her dining room table almost 20 years ago, and now has an elegant atelier at Avery Fine Art in Alexandria. An invaluable resource for designers in search of 18th, 19th and 20th century oils and works on paper, Evelyn’s clients rely on her to find and frame the right piece for their collections.

If the Avery home makes you think of Barry Dixon, you’re right. His signature design touches are everywhere. Long-time friends and design collaborators, Barry Dixon and Evelyn Avery often travel to Europe together to find art and antiques.

With a new book, new lines of furniture, fabrics, and an accessory line recently picked up by Bergdorf Goodman, this iconic designer still finds time to enjoy his 4,000 acre farm in the nearby Virginia countryside.

As guests mingled on the expansive balcony where Raz served wine, light flooded into the dining room and Hudson Restaurant chef prepared scallops and other delectable hors d’oeuvres.
