Ever driven past a house so extravagant from the street you felt like you just had to know more? 1106 Mill Ridge Road in McLean is one of those houses. Its stately brick façade, decorated with white columns, brings the type of curb appeal that will turn heads and crane necks, and what waits behind the doors is just as impressive.
This lavish house boasts nine bedrooms, eight full and two half bathrooms, plus a myriad of bonus areas like a gym, office, and recreation room. In total, the house has a square footage of 10,864. Though the façade and architectural details emulate the colonial era, this home was built in 1998 and has recently undergone renovations to keep it up to date.
So now for the burning question: what will it cost? To make this estate your own, the current list price is $4.48 million.
From the moment you step in the front door, you’re greeted with arched doorways and columns that embody the colonial style — and when the marble flooring and crystal chandelier are added in the mix, you’ve got a first impression that will be hard to forget.
The luxurious aesthetic of the rest of the house translates into the kitchen, but functionality wasn’t sacrificed. New quartz countertops and appliances, combined with the crisp white look of the tiles and cabinets make this area a visually-stunning and useful place for cooking.
Those white columns and sky-high ceilings certainly contribute to the sense of grandeur, but don’t underestimate the power of little details to make a home really impressive. Intricate carvings on the white fireplace and the details in the crown molding and arched design are what really give the room its lavish, expensive appearance.
Those crown molding details continue in the dining area — including a beautiful installation surrounding the base of the chandelier — but it has a subtler, cleaner design to make for a more serene atmosphere.
An estate of this scale just wouldn’t be complete without some space to play. The heated in-ground pool features an endless swim machine, a waterfall, and a hot tub is just steps away. Don’t overlook the indoor amenities either; inside, you can find a fitness room and a full-sized sauna and steam room.
