A landmark Tudor mansion built by the historic Chevy Chase Land Company in c.1894 has hit the market in Maryland for $25,900,000. It became known as Ishpiming, when its second owner, William S. Corby, a baking magnate, purchased the home from Nevada Senator Francis G. Newlands in c.1909 and selected the Native American name, meaning high ground in Chippewa. Spanning a little over 12,800 square feet, the historic home features seven bedrooms, including three masters each with their own fireplace; with additional guest bedrooms on the third level, as well as numerous sitting rooms, including a dance rehearsal space, a music room with stained glass windows and an artist’s studio. A massive formal ballroom with hand-carved ceilings and ornate styling provide the perfect setting for large gatherings, meetings and hosting guests. In just its recent history, the home has been visited by the previous four Presidents, numerous foreign dignitaries, politicians and global power brokers. The grounds have remained meticulously maintained, preserving the entire natural splendor modeled after the English countryside, resulting in rare privacy and exclusivity in a quintessential DC setting. The property is on the market for $25,900,000 with Ted Duncan.
