Sited at the top of a gentle knoll on the banks of the Potomac River sits an elegant ch'teau clad in French limestone. This mansion was the formal estate of Jordan's King Hussein and Queen Noor. The main parcel and structure were acquired from the King & Queen in 2000. Subsequently, the owner has thoughtfully acquired six adjacent parcels furthering to beautify and expand this grand and private 15-acre riverfront parcel. The estate is a collaboration between renowned architect, John Ike, designer, Geoffrey Bradfield, and Horizon Builders. The three worked effortlessly together to create this impressive four-story mansion constructed with French milled limestone and a slate Mansard roof punctuated with limestone dormers.
The entry to the property is through gates set seamlessly into the limestone columns of the front wall and flanked by gas lanterns. The gates open to a verdant half-mile drive. The cobblestone-lined drive provides access to the guard house, manager's house, guest house and garage, and main residence. The drive terminates into the impressive granite cobblestone motor court of the ch'teau. The entry to the main residence is through custom wrought iron doors and into a vestibule. The vestibule opens up to a two-story reception hall with coffered ceilings and a full height 24-foot limestone fireplace. The main level is expansive and features the striking formal and public entertaining space. The living room at the heart of the house effortlessly flows and connects to the dining room and library. The southeast wing of the residence houses the family room, true commercial grade chef's kitchen, and breakfast solarium. The northwest wing contains the gym, spa lounge, and office. The second level features four private bedroom suites, each with en-suite baths. The third level is completely encompassed by the generous primary suite. The primary bedroom features floor-to-ceiling windows leading to a private terrace with a commanding bird's-eye view of the Potomac. Attached to the primary suite is a separate sitting room, dressing room, and two full spa-inspired baths. Completing this floor is a large office with built-in bookcases and an imposing marble fireplace. The lower level of the residence walks out to the rear yard and offers a large mahogany-paneled club room, wine cellar, and cinema-quality theater installed in 2017. In addition to the family and entertaining space on the lower level, there is back-of-house space for staff operations and building mechanicals. The guest house and garage are connected to the main house by a poolside loggia and the mid-level granite-cobbled motor court. There are additional garage bays in the main residence and on the lower level of the guest house. An elegant spiral staircase leads to the top floor of the guest house. The guest house is private and well-appointed with two bedroom suites, a separate kitchen, and generous living and dining rooms. There are two additional structures on the property, a gate house at the entrance and a manager's/Staff house. The manager and staff residence is located on the north end of the property providing exceptional privacy. The house includes a formal reception room, dining room, kitchen, two offices, and a spacious conference room. Located in the same building through a private and discrete entrance are two staff bedrooms. The gate house is just behind the main gates to the estate and provides excellent communication and security. The design of the grounds is landscaped in an 18th-century style known as jardin a l'anglaise or English garden. This style lends itself well to the property considering its siting adjacent to protected parkland on each side of the Potomac River's banks. The 15 acres provide privacy and space that is unrivaled and unavailable elsewhere in the Washington region.
