It’s the raw numbers that make you realize just how big this McLean mansion is. For example: There are 35 rooms. Eight fireplaces. Twelve bathrooms. A wine cellar that holds 3,000 bottles. And a library with enough shelving for 6,000 books. This hilltop home is pretty huge, and it’s also decked out with a laundry list of opulent details—thanks in part to a recent $1 million renovation. Among the highlights: the double-height grand foyer, which has a floor inlaid with a mahogany, cherry, and maple compass design, mirrored walls, and a large baroque crystal chandelier; the kitchen, featuring white Calcutta Gold granite counters, an imported Italian tin ceiling, a travertine floor, and a breakfast room that has its own a wood-burning fireplace and skylights; the aforementioned 6,000-book library, a double-decker with an antique chandelier and iron spiral staircase; and two master suites, one of which encompasses his-and-her closets, a mirrored dressing hall, and a massive bath with a soaking tub. On the lower level, an entertaining space is set up with a billiards room, a home theater, a bistro-style wet bar with a Brazilian hardwood dance floor, and the wine cellar, finished with 19th-century French oak doors and an antique alabaster gas lantern. Outside, there’s a private walled garden, a pool, and a lion-head fountain in the courtyard. Nearby, a newly renovated carriage house offers a guest bedroom, two baths, a kitchen, a dining area, and a large living area overlooking the pool. This home is listed at $4.295 million. Check it out below, then go to TTR Sotheby’s for the complete details.
