Most Expensive Homes on the Market: A Stately $4.95 Million Colonial in Chevy Chase
This place has its own “sport court.”
Built in 1902, this grand estate leaves almost no lavish detail untouched. A cobble- and flagstone driveway leads to the four-car carriage house and then to the main home, a property of nearly 10,000 square feet that boasts ten bedrooms and eight baths. Inside, the home is decked out with such luxe details as ebonized, pine, and marble floors, custom moldings and ceiling medallions, stenciled paneling in the library, and gilded and crystal chandeliers. The kitchen was updated to include honed granite counters, a butcher block island, custom wood and glass cabinetry, and top-level appliances. Upstairs, the master suite features a wood-burning fireplace (one of two in the home), a private deck, a dressing room, and a master bath outfitted with an inlaid marble floors, two black granite vanities, and a marble soaking tub. Elsewhere, there’s a media room, a caterer’s kitchen, and a two-bedroom, two-bath guest cottage. That’s all on the 1.25 acres of manicured grounds—which includes a sport court for private tennis and basketball games.
The home is listed at $4.95 million. Check it out below, then head to Washington Fine Properties for the complete details.
