If your dream home is a mansion that plans to move to Europe when it grows up, this is the listing for you.
This week's Maryland Mansion has a lot going on. From a stunning, European-inspired, limestone exterior to a gorgeously painted and designed interior, this home will transport you across the pond. Beyond the aesthetic design, there are also plenty of amenities in this Maryland mansion, to keep you entertained. This listing by The Fleisher group is at 9300 River Rd., in Potomac, Maryland.
The property is, of course, gated for privacy, and the heated drive circles around some visually interesting landscaping, before bringing you to the stately front entrance, complete with columns, a dome, and intricate moldings.
Inside, the European vibe continues with more sweeping staircases, gold leaf detail, custom-molded plaster detail, and striking paintings.
The paintings offer something to look at in every direction in the foyer, including up, on the interior of the dome.
There is plenty of living space in this Maryland mansion, including a large living room and a formal dining room for entertaining, a cozy wood-paneled library, and a tea room. All-in-all, there are 12 fireplaces in the home.
There is also a massive recreation room, which includes one of those fireplaces, as well as a full bar. This room also has lots of windows and doors that will lead out to the backyard.
There is not one but two (!) kitchens. The larger kitchen includes an island with a breakfast bar and a breakfast nook under another dome. There are two ovens and a large range, as well as other amenities. The second kitchen is off of the rec room, so there is easy access to it from that full bar.
The bedrooms are large and elegant, as you might imagine. The master bedroom includes a nice sitting area, and the massive master bath includes a dressing table without being crowded. Even the guest bedrooms are spacious and well-appointed. One has a fireplace in the bedroom and a large soaker tub and a separate shower in the bathroom.
Finally, the interior amenities are rounded out by a wine cellar and an in-home movie theater.
Heading outside, there are even more amenities. There is an in-ground pool that is deep enough for diving, as well as plenty of patio space around the pool for relaxing and entertaining. The yard itself also offers a nice flat area for use. Finally, there is a sizeable, fenced-in sports court that includes both basketball hoops and a tennis net.
