A substantial French style manor in McLean, Virginia is still looking for a buyer after sitting on the market since 2011 for as much as $18 million. The 20,000 square foot residence, known as Maison Vendome, was built in 2008 on a 1.26 acre property in McLean’s highly sought after neighbourhood, The Reserve. Slate, limestone, wrought iron and copper join seamlessly to create a striking French style manor with a grand colonnade featuring not one, but five sets of French doors opening into the groin-vaulted gallery. Beyond the gallery is grand marble staircase with soaring domed ceiling. There is a ballroom with adjoining wet bar with a hidden panel leading to a panelled library, a formal dining room, comfortable family room, chef’s kitchen, tea room and family study. The family quarters include four ensuite bedrooms with a large master suite including a private sleeping room, a sitting room, dressing room and large master bathroom. A large gathering hall on the garden level opens to a large wet bar, climate controlled wine cellar and a 12-seat home theatre. There is also an indoor basketball court, billiard room, indoor pool, sauna and massage room. For the automobile enthusiast, the garage provides parking for 6 automobiles and features hydraulic lifts for additional convenience. Maison Vendome is on the market for $14 million with Sotheby’s International Realty.
