This week, Maryland Mansions visits a French country home in Bethesda, with six beds, eight baths, and five half-baths, listed for $12,950,000 by The Fleisher Group.

This 1.5-acre, gated property just outside of Bethesda provides all of the comforts you'd expect from a mansion: pool, wine cellar, massive master suite, in-home gym, and eight fireplaces. In addition to that, there are beautifully manicured grounds and luxurious living areas. The price tag on all this lavish living space is $12,950,000, and it includes parking for 11 cars.

Garage

The property features a gated entry. The driveway winds up to the front of the beautiful stone Normandy-style country home that features over 20,000 square feet of space. A pristine stone path leads to the elegant wooden front door, which features intricate woodwork on the inside and opens into the sizable foyer.

The main floor of the home includes a living room beyond the main foyer, with detailed plaster ceilings. Beyond that is a large library with stairs that lead down to the wine cellar on the lower level. Adjacent to the living room is a dining room that overlooks the backyard, followed by a large family room (with another fireplace), a breakfast nook, chef-quality kitchen (with a lovely marble backsplash!), and a mudroom.

The upper floor features lots of bedroom and living space, but the level is dominated by the master suite. This bathroom with its own fireplace is what dreams are made of!

Heading outside, the manicured grounds surround a 50-foot heated pool with cabana pool house. The pool house features lots of seating, an eating area, and a bathroom.

In addition to the swimming pool, there is also a large reflecting pool and multiple outdoor seating areas on the property.
