Built in 2000 on a 0.50 acre property in Washington, D.C., this 11,000 square foot stone manor is on the market for $12 million. Designed to accomodate in-home business needs, the library features a separate side entrance so that guests and business activity will not conflict with private family schedules. This unique property is unparalleled in sophisticated design and privacy, and not withstanding its generous scale is as well suited for both large and intimate gatherings. One of the most commanding architectural features is the grand foyer with a 25′ ceiling main reception gallery that ends with 10′ Palladian glass doors leading to beautifully designed grounds featuring French inspired terraces, a magnificent fountain, and lawns originally designed to accommodate a swimming pool. To the left off the main reception gallery is an elegant living room that extends the whole width of the structure, and is centered around a large Italian marble surround fireplace. At the opposite end is a library with custom built floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and cabinets, a wet-bar, and 3 sets of large French doors leading to the patios, garden and fountain areas.
To the right of the main reception gallery, is an oversized dining room with three sets of French doors leading to a half-circular driveway and front gardens. The dining room is also connected to a main kitchen and a large butler’s pantry. The kitchen opens up to a light filled family room and a welcoming breakfast area overlooking the private back yard. On the first floor the master suite covers the entire left side of the house with private sitting area, stone balcony and two large custom designed walk-in closets. Elevator access is provided to every level of this home. Beautifully detailed hand carved cherry circular staircase leads to every floor, and cherry wood flooring is featured throughout. It’s on the market for $12 million with Wendy Gowdey of Sotheby’s International Realty.
