About 1342 Potomac School Rd

Elegance and privacy on 5.5 acres minutes from DC. This is the home for the buyer looking for absolute privacy and autonomous space for extended family, guests, and staff, with all the features for gracious entertaining -- and quick access to DC or Tysons. Nestled at the end of a very quiet cul-de-sac, this beautiful residence offers almost 16,000 SF of living space with tranquil views from almost all rooms of the house of the historic Pimmit Run stream and the woods beyond, and city life seems far away. Reminiscent of the South of France, the golden hues of the interior come ablaze with an abundance of sunshine with its full southern exposure, and its arches, limestone and ceramic flooring, elegant moldings, and multiple access points to a huge main level wrap around terrace, upstairs logia, and ground floor covered patio -- all overlooking the azure waters of the pool and spa -- further evoke the Mediterranean flair. The home is an entertainer's dream -- the grand reception area connected to the embassy sized dining room by a two story atrium, open gourmet kitchen and adjacent fully equipped catering kitchen, expansive lower level with a large rec room and dining area opening to the covered patio and pool, lounge with panoramic views and a glass overlook onto the regulation sized squash court (basketball too), and the over-the-top French-inspired wine tasting room added in 2017. This residence is unique in the fact that it can accommodate extended family and numerous staff with privacy and autonomy: on the main level, there is a spacious in-law apartment with a sitting room, dining area, kitchenette, bedroom, bath, and independent entry. Additionally on the main level, there is a bedroom and bath for a live-in housekeeper. In the lower level, there is ample office space and two bedrooms for staff or houseguests. The home also features on the main level an inviting family room (again open to the terrace), an adjacent media room, spacious study of office with custom built-ins, and a music room. This home needs to be seen to truly appreciate the serenity, the elegance, and warmth of both it's interior and exterior spaces. This isn't just a home, it's a lifestyle, For schooling, it is located in the wonderful McLean HS pyramid and a block away from the prestigious Potomac School.
