Available for the first time in 50 years, situated on approximately 4 acres, it offers captivating views of the Potomac River and is renowned for its exquisite entertaining spaces. Built in 1973 by descendants of the Lee and Bowman families, this French Provincial masterpiece has been a beacon of sophistication.

The spacious reception hall sets the tone for the grandeur within, with a sweeping staircase leading to the upper level. Inside, the grand living room boasts a majestic antique marble fireplace and French doors that open onto a terrace overlooking the lush gardens and river beyond. A cozy library, complete with mahogany paneling and another fireplace, invites quiet reflection, while the sunlit solarium offers a tranquil retreat. The dining room is a vision of elegance, with hand-painted wallpaper and French doors leading to a patio ideal for both intimate gatherings and lavish affairs. The east wing also features a second sitting room with a fireplace and a spacious kitchen designed to capture the morning sun.
