Details: The owner, an area builder, traveled to Europe to study the architecture of fine homes there. Though the estate’s located in the Chain Bridge/Gold Coast section of McLean, it’s reminiscent of French chateaus built centuries ago and could easily sit atop a hill in Provence.

Iron and stone gates imported from Europe lead the way to the house, which sits on the Potomac with four levels of balconies, a wrap-around terrace overlooking the river, a Spanish-clay tile roof, and a three-car garage. The 11,700-square-foot home has hardwood and stone floors, a two-story library, an exercise room with an attached steam room and sauna, floor-to-ceiling windows and doors, a wine cellar, a media room, a billiard room, 12-foot ceilings, and a radiant-heat floor in the master bath.
