This Great Falls Colonial sits on five acres and has more than 20,000 square feet of living space. Many of the rooms have columns and ornate crown molding, giving the home a regal feel. The gourmet kitchen has double ovens and stoves, powder-blue cabinets—some with glass fronts for storage and display—and a painted-tile backspalsh with a toile motif. The adjacent breakfast room has 180-degree floor-to-ceiling windows, and it opens onto a patio. One of the best spaces in the home is the sunroom, an indoor-outdoor space which looks equipped for year-round use; the large fireplace would provide warmth in the winter, while the ceiling fan and slate floor would keep it cool in the summer. The home also has a media room, fitness room, wine cellar, billiard room, pool, tennis court, and carriage house.
