This McLean estate is one of those mega-pricey mansions that takes luxe living to its utmost levels—the place is loaded with only the fanciest of finishes, from the herringbone hardwood floors in the entryway and hand-painted and silver-leaf wallpapers in the dining room to the ornate decorative millwork and coffered ceilings. Also on the laundry list of extravagant amenities: a gourmet kitchen with two Carrera marble islands, stainless steel counters, two double sinks outfitted to dispense “reverse osmosis drinking water,” and a limestone tile range; a mahogany library—that’s in addition to the office and the study on other levels of the home—with wainscoting, built-in shelving, a carved mantel fireplace, grasscloth wallpaper, and a Vaughn chandelier; and an expansive master suite that includes a private patio, a bay-window sitting room with a mini fridge and morning bar, and a decadent master bath that features marble floors, a rock crystal chandelier, two marble vanities, and custom double walk-in closets. Elsewhere, there’s an in-law suite, rec room, gym/dance studio, and, of course, a room set aside just for wrapping gifts. Guess that’s just what you do when you have 12,000 square feet of living space. 

The five-bedroom, seven-bath home is listed for $5.625 million. Take a peek below, then go to Washington Fine Properties for the complete tour.
