Built to take advantage of the views over the Potomac River, this 12,000 square foot residence is the most expensive home currently on the market in Maryland with an asking price of $17.5 million. It was designed by Franck & Lohsen Architects and built by Leonard Nurmi of CDC Builders in 2013 for the current owners. Listing agent Sassy Jacobs told Realtor, “It was built kind of like a replica of the owner’s grandmother’s house, which was in Lookout Mountain over Chattanooga, and he built it wanting it to look like that house, using the same sort of bricks.” The interiors are bright and light-filled with formal living and dining rooms opening to a large terrace and a large kitchen serving as the home’s hub. There is an adjacent breakfast room with views over the Potomac River. The residence includes 6 bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms, a library with French doors opening to a private balcony, heated wood flooring and a lower level complete with living area, bar and workout room. The nearly 2 acre property is complete with motor court with gated entry, large side yards, a swimming pool and expansive terraces. It’s on the market for $17.5 million with Washington Fine Properties.
