This five-bedroom home in McLean, with 250 feet of waterfront frontage and 180-degree views of the Potomac River, hit the market on Thursday for $15 million.

The owners of 1139 Crest Lane purchased an older home at the address in 2015 with the goal of creating their vision of a house that offered an indoor-outdoor living experience along the river.

Completed two years later by a team comprised of Peterson & Collins, Thompson & Cooke and Joseph Richardson, the five-bedroom home is a combination of rain-clad mahogany and Carderock stone to blend into the surrounding environment. 

Glass walls along the back of the home frame views of the river in the living room, dining room and kitchen. This level includes standout features like a 7-foot basalt fireplace in the two-story living room and a 14-foot marble island in the kitchen.

The upper level of the home consists of the master suite, with a coffee/wine bar and a private balcony, three more bedrooms and a home office. A two-tiered roof terrace has multiple seating areas, a mini-bar area and some of the most expansive river views in the home.
