If your Maryland mansion needs to be gated, custom-finished, and have a massive kitchen, this is the home for you!

This week's Maryland Mansion is a beautiful property in Potomac, Maryland. This $7,860,000 Long & Foster listing at 10501 Chapel Rd. features over 24,000 square feet of livable space, including eight bedrooms, 10 full and five half-baths, and a fully finished basement that walks out to the backyard.

Front gate

The property is totally fenced-in, and the gated entry provides much-needed privacy for this retreat. The elegant ironwork of the gate is mirrored on the inlaid detailing on the imposing and beautiful front door to the home. Any guests will have to take a moment to admire the doors before coming inside.

Front drive

This trend of beautiful custom ironwork is carried into the home with the massive double staircase that sweeps up both sides of the foyer. The foyer walks out to the backyard but also opens on either side into entertaining space.

Great room

There is a formal dining room and living room as well as a huge great room that flows into a breakfast nook. The detailing on the fireplaces, like most of the house, is all custom-worked. 

Chef's kitchen

The massive chef's kitchen features two (yes, two!) islands, so there is plenty of space to work and entertain. The kitchen has every appliance you could hope for, including an eight-burner range and double oven.

master bath

Upstairs, the bedrooms are all large and elegant. The master bedroom has a large sitting area with another of the home's fireplaces. The bedroom also includes double doors that walk out onto a private balcony overlooking the pool. The master bath features beautifully detailed flooring, a walk-in shower, and a huge soaker tub.

home gym

The basement is fully finished and walks out to the backyard. There is a great room space, a full bar, and home gym. The bathroom off of the home gym includes a full shower and a huge soaker tub. There is also a sauna down here. Finally, the "maids quarters" and a caterer's kitchen finish of the floor, so the space could be easily converted to a nice in-law suite. The outdoor areas include a beautiful patio space and a swimming pool and separate jacuzzi. There is also a five-car garage.
