A yet-to-be built home in McLean, Virginia may set a new bar for luxury in the residential real estate market in the DC region.
The Building Group is in the process of constructing a 22,000 square-foot, 10-bedroom home on 3.8 acres along Georgetown Park in the Langley neighborhood (map). The home is scheduled for completion in 2022 and will be listed with Mark Lowham and Daniel Heider of TTR Sotheby's International Realty for $22 million.
Dubbed Chateau du Soleil, the estate will greet visitors with large wrought-iron doors that provide a sense of the features inside. The owner's suite will spread out over 3,300 square feet with an 1,100 square-foot, two-level closet; there is also a grand ballroom inspired by the Palace of Versailles. The amenity list in the home reads like a five-star resort: a massage room, sauna, fitness center, private hair salon, safe room, three wet bars, a wine cellar, card room, and a professional home cinema.
The eye-popping amenities continue outside. Expansive terraces look out on a modern pool surrounded by fire bowls, fountains and a waterfall. An outdoor entertaining setup includes a fire pit and a 250-inch outdoor television. Additional outdoor features include a large koi pond, jogging path, and a French garden.
"The developers, Mike and Mandy Mafi, have a track record for outdoing themselves with each new passion project," Heider told UrbanTurf. "This will be the most expensive home they’ve ever constructed and it will feature amenities never before seen in the Capital Region."
