Property Description

Reflecting the best of European architecture and positioned high above the banks of the Potomac River lies one of the great homes of the Capital Region, Chateau Grande Vie. Its name hailing from the unequivocally serene views it offers residents from nearly every room of the estate. The handsome turreted stone façade is set against a verdant wooded landscape on a privately sited 85 foot stretch of untouched riverfront in prestigious McLean, Virginia. The grand atrium welcomes guests with soaring cathedral ceilings anchored by a curved staircase comprised of intricate wrought-iron detailing, which serves as a functional work of art, setting the tone for the 16,000 square foot expanse. Beyond the main stair, a generous family room, river views from every window, a handsome study with an adjacent outdoor terrace and a chef’s kitchen with professional-grade appliances highlight the main level which are accented by imported marble, Brazilian cherry flooring, and numerous crystal chandeliers reminiscent of the finest homes found along the French and Italian Rivera. Ascending the main staircase first draws the eye upward — to a sculpted, barreled ceiling reflecting visions of the renowned Roman Pantheon. An owner’s suite, unlike any other, offers surreal river views, complementing four additional bedroom suites, each featuring lavishly appointed marble baths with jetted jacuzzi tubs. Descending to the first lower-level reveals the ultimate entertainment space, framed by Corinthian columns and comfortably able to host a hundred or more of the most distinguished guests. The spa-level is a true showstopper, featuring an indoor pool lined with intricate mosaic tile, as one would find in the world’s most luxurious resorts - the level also features a custom-crafted sauna. Five sets of imported mahogany, wrought iron, and glass double doors bring in the sights of lush greenery, feels of the river breeze, and the sounds of the national anthem being played across at the Carderock Center. A glass elevator overlooking the river and serving all four levels, home cinema, twelve music zones, five hand-carved marble fireplaces, and two separate two-car garages complete what is a residence built to the highest of international standards. Offering priceless river frontage in an irreplaceable location, Chateau Grande Vie is your very own castle on the hill.
