Most Expensive Homes on the Market: A Palace in Potomac (Photos)

A 33,000-square-foot house on 6.3 acres.

Curious about the priciest properties on the market in a given neighborhood? We were. How does the most expensive listing in Kalorama differ from the one in Old Town? Chevy Chase from Georgetown? Palisades versus, say, McLean? Each week we’ll give you a peek at the home in each location with the biggest price tag. This week, we head to one of the region’s most affluent neighborhoods: Potomac.  

This Potomac mansion is all about the numbers: 33,000 square feet, 6.3 acres of land, 20-foot ceilings, 10 bedrooms, 12.5 bathrooms, and, of course, the most important figure—$18 million. Designed and constructed by husband-and-wife team Haleh and David Niroo, this newly built house dabbles in old-world luxury. A few highlights? The two-story English library with custom-milled cherry- and tiger-wood-paneled walls and coffered ceilings; his-and-her formal powder rooms (plus an informal one); a floating marble staircase; dual elevators; a home theater and gym; a pool; and a tennis court. Plus a catering kitchen, guest suite, and staff suite. It’s, in a word, lavish. See below for an abbreviated tour, then head to the Fleisher Group to ogle more.
