Reflecting both timeless and modern architecture and privately positioned on a premier site overlooking the Potomac River, The Falls ($62,950,000) is among the finest estate residences ever offered in the Washington region. The 3.2 acre estate affords rare privacy and is introduced via a private security and gate house which also includes staff quarters. Beyond the gates, a private drive leads to a secure arrival court and access to the underground parking garage which accommodates 30 cars. Bronze entry doors welcome guests to a gracious rotunda and gallery leading to the dramatic, two story living room overlooking the river.
The bespoke interiors were thoughtfully designed by renowned designer, Thomas Pheasant, including the majority of the furnishings which were custom made for the residence. The main residence captures six bedroom suites, all with en suite baths. The master suite is privately positioned within a private wing of the main residence and includes a private study, a spa style bath with steam, dry sauna, and jacuzzi, and an expansive dressing room. This wing also includes a private service kitchen, exercise room, massage room and a second full bath.
The main residence captures every imaginable luxury for world-class entertaining. A custom, mahogany library captures sweeping river views and includes an impressive wet bar. Nearby, a private lounge adjoins the expansive wine cellar. Just beyond the lounge, a 3-D Media Room incorporates a state-of-the-art media system. The residence offers multiple venues throughout suitable for entertaining small groups or large scale receptions.
The outdoor terrace affords perhaps the finest view of the Potomac River in the region. A glittering infinity pool and spa yield to the limitless views of the river and beyond. On the southern side of the estate, a full size tennis court and pavilion is positioned adjacent to the private gardens. A pathway through the gardens leads to the exceptional guest quarters.
The Marden House
The Marden House was designed and constructed by the world-renowned architect, Frank Lloyd Wright in 1959, and is one of only a handful of homes in the Commonwealth of Virginia designed by the famous architect.
The Marden House captures sweeping views of the river. From above, the house is shaped like a fish, appropriate for the natural setting alongside the river. As a separate guest quarters or as a place to entertain, The Marden House is a priceless addition to this most unique estate.
