Property Description

This home is like none other in the DC Area. Sited on over an acre, Riverside Drive is the only peninsula along the Potomac River, allowing for out of this world views of the C& O Canal and Potomac River, with no road in-between. Designed by award winning architect, Robert Gurney, this 6000+ square foot home is truly a work of art. A light-filled double circulation axis separates the house's main living spaces and glass and steel bridges cross the circulation volume to connect to the second floor. All primary public and private living spaces have large expanses of commercial grade glass oriented towards the river, while secondary spaces open to the expanse of the front lawn, surrounded by hundreds of planted arborvitae, for privacy. The minimally detailed interior includes honed and chiseled Pompeii stone, ash flooring, walnut millwork and white Carrera marble countertops. The exterior boasts cement board, blue stacked stone and mahogany finishes and the house is extremely energy efficient, with geothermal HVAC. Some of the amenities include; double volume great room, expansive screed porch, oversized 2 car garage with glass doors, main level guest room and full bathroom, media room, generous sized workshop, study with wall of glass overlooking main level, multiple decks perched on the water and so much more. Must see to believe.
