Inspired by French provincial architecture, this 16,000 sq ft grand estate home is a balanced mix of classic luxury and provincial freshness. Located on a private, 12-acre lot backing to Forest Conservation Land and the Middle Patuxent River, timeless elegance begins with a private drive sided by lighted brick pillars that announce arrival to a circular brick paver car park and center brick portico. Perfect for modern tastes, private outdoor amenities include professional landscaping, stone garden beds, and a quintessential French iron balcony with dual cascading iron staircases overlooking a large 20x50-foot in-ground, heated pool, and spa newly completed in 2019, along with a beautiful new travertine surround and covered patio.

Inside, professionally designed interiors bring extraordinary elegance and sophistication with just the right updates using a crisp and up-to-the-minute aesthetic. A dramatic two-story foyer with a classic marble floor, wall niches, and a soaring custom mirror set the stage for luxury living and entertaining. Columns and a sweeping cased opening define the formal two-story great room with three barrel-vaulted dormers streaming sunlight, while two designer chandeliers provide ambiance. Neutral tones and dramatic accents are expressed in a cast stone fireplace embellished with an artful, hand-guilt fretwork surround and over-mantle. The great room, main level owner's bedroom, and newly upgraded kitchen each have French atrium doors to access the rear balcony.

A sparkling new kitchen also made its debut in 2019 offering a professional Jenn-air gas cook station, a contrasting island with 3 pendants, and a prep sink. A second island with a breakfast bar is centered on axis with the adjacent family room, stone fireplace, and coffered ceiling. The gourmet kitchen is also flanked by a breakfast room positioned under a deep cove-lit ceiling, and a secondary side access door to an outdoor dining pavilion. Banquet-sized formal dining unfolds inside with a vestibule-styled cased opening and lighted wall niches that announce entry. Exceptional millwork throughout this home includes two built-in cabinets crafted with exotic burl wood that enhance formal dining service. Two main-level en-suite bedrooms include a luxury owner’s suite wing with cove-lit ceilings, dressing area, sitting room, and a newly added guest bedroom. A richly paneled study with library built-ins, custom desking, and a private wet bar completes the main level owner’s suite wing.

Downstairs, high ceilings, full daylight, and an exceptional space plan provide effortless elegance inviting living and entertaining on a grand scale. Designer carpet and lighting define the main gathering space and feature fireplace, whilst a dramatic wall of windows and French doors open directly onto a stunning travertine patio and newly installed pool, fountain, and spa with a remote cover. A second, dual entry service kitchen stands at the ready for large or catered gatherings and is located conveniently behind a central wet bar. Guests will enjoy cards, billiards, and toasting special moments in a conditioned wine room before a movie in the fully outfitted theater. The perfect completion to the lower level is a generous and private guest suite wing and seventh bedroom with a private atrium access door to the walk-out patio, full bath, and walk-in closet. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms and a bonus playroom adjacent to a nanny living suite with a wet bar and private full bath. Versatility in this distinctive residence can accommodate any lifestyle in today’s culture. Discover true luxury revealed in timeless beauty, visionary design, and endless amenities.
