Stunning symmetry, refinement, and idyllic setting are the enchanting reveal of this sprawling Potomac estate in the quintessential Bradley Farms neighborhood. The timeless design of architect John Neufeld features over 12,000 square feet of custom building and finishing, adding luxurious distinction to each curated space.
A double swing gate entry and teardrop driveway open to a landscape of mature trees, stone fountains and ornamental gardens—extending to a scenic preserve of foliage bordering the property’s 3.3 acres for ultimate serenity and privacy. Two 2-car garages provide ample parking with an additional motor court just off the front drive—a plus for entertaining and capturing an auspicious view of the elegant stone portico with ionic columns. Double front doors of solid premium wood and full-light glass compliment the pristine white brick exterior and extravagant slate roofing.
This once-owned estate for over 30 years boasts a grand foyer with a striking octagonal floor design of radiant marble and wood inlays, sweeping staircase, layered illumination and alluring trio of curved Juliet balconies overlooking the entrance. The artistic integration of ornate iron railings and balusters creates eye-catching splendor.
Immaculate hardwood flooring presents throughout the main and upper levels; collaborating with 12-foot ceilings, custom plaster crown moldings, finely crafted millwork, and Baldwin hardware—edifying elegance in the adjacent formal living and dining rooms; and emanating great room. This sanctuary parades oversized custom windows, tranquil views and French doors exiting to one of three exterior decks. An impressive barreled ceiling anchors a dazzling crystal chandelier and concealed lighting for optimized ambience. Classic finishing touches are the custom sound system and one of six signature fireplaces.
An expansive island, custom cherry-wood cabinetry, professional grade appliances and open floor plan highlight this copious chef’s kitchen, adjoining catering kitchen and butler’s pantry; a perfect balance of gourmet aesthetics and scalable functionality. Completing the main level is a grand breakfast room, family room with side terrace, luxuriously appointed first-floor guest suite and exceptional library/executive office with rich wood built-ins, fireplace and access to a private patio.
Chic upper level en-suite bedrooms feature opulent marble baths and boutique sitting areas. The showstopper owner’s suite occupies a full wing on the upper level showcasing two lavish marble en suites with jetted jacuzzi tubs and steam showers, luxe mirrored dressing areas and custom built closets. Restorative luxury describes the spacious bedroom with tray ceiling and the suite’s fully appointed sitting area with built-in entertainment cabinetry, fireplace, and environmental views.
Dual stairways descend to a lower recreation level; with plush carpeting; custom crafted full bar, home theater flooring/lighting and media center. An abundance of autonomous space is ideal for staffing or extended entertainment.
Dramatic window heights and paired French doors draw an abundance of natural light to a regal corridor leading from the main floor to an elaborately furnished 3-level guest house. All the necessities for pampering and relaxation are available including kitchenette, fitness room, custom-designed sauna, spa, exotic tile baths plus residency accommodations and access to the outdoor pool and tennis court. Pool showers are separate from the residence and have independent access for guest convenience.
