The Premier Potomac Riverfront, River Access, Waterfront, Private Resort Home of the Greater Washington, DC Metro Area
A one of a kind property graces its guests with an ambiance that nurtures the soul.

The space
A warm castle magnificently towers over beautiful Potomac Views.
View the fourteen foot colossal Mahogany Entry doors with 30 foot window arches as you step into the "secret" garden via the garden staircase. Appreciate the full thickness true Castle Rock.
A forty foot Grand Foyer greets its guests. Crystal Chandeliers decorate the Formal areas. Calacatta Gold Marble flooring and a four-curve maple staircase carry you to the next level. Relax under expansive 15 foot f-f ceilings, ride the Glass Elevator overlooking the Potomac River and entertain in your Gourmet Kitchen. There are five custom carved marble wood-burning and propane ready fireplaces, five Bedrooms each with whirlpool tubs, three with balconies, one with circular sun room, and an Indoor 50' Pool & Spa. Warm up in the Cedar Wet/Dry Sauna, watch a show in the 3D Movie Theater, Dance to 15 Sonos Music Zones, and cool down with 11 HVAC Zones with thermostatic control. Set the mood using
Control4 Lighting control. Manage HVAC, Humidity, Lighting, and Music via Smartphone or internet. Feel safe behind Mahogany entry and interior Doors, Mirabeau Wood Rear Entry doors with custom Wrought Iron and Glass, and a Full Vermont Red Slate Roof. The Grand Ballroom easily accommodates 50 people for dining or more for seated presentations or dancing.
Dont forget to pass by the additional guest room with full bath located on the Ballroom level 2 and to notice the wet bar ready area just outside the guest room. Finally meander down the Ipe staircase from level 2 down to the recreation area where there is yet another guest room ( > 400 square feet with 15 foot f-f ceilings). This room can double as an exercise or weight room or can be an ideal place for a live in nanny or chef.
Enjoy the private indoor nearly 50 foot x 20 foot pool with 3 foot shallow end and 9 foot deep end. Adorned with beautiful blue glass waterline tile, mosaics, and water fountains. Enjoy the spa and rest assured with the password protected auto pool cover. The absence of a chlorine smell is thanks to the low chlorine salt system and the commercial dehumidification system. Relax in the Cedar Dry Sauna with Tylo Sauna heater or enjoy with one touch automatic steam. Someone's in the shower? That's ok, there's another one on this level with two separate baths. The entire pool recreation area is covered with multi arched 3/4" tongue and groove western red cedar from Washington State.
