Up until 2016, Jeff Bezos had the honour of owning the most expensive house in Washington DC, which he bought for $35 million. He also spent another $12 million on renovations. However, it has just been overtaken by a stunning new 48,000 square foot property in Great Falls, McLean, Virginia. Recently coming onto the market for an astonishing $62,950,000, it has become the most expensive property ever offered for sale in the Washington DC area.
The 3.2 acre, sprawling property has been dubbed The Falls due to its spectacular views of the Potomac River and rapid falls. There are six bedrooms, and they all have private en-suite facilities. The master bedroom also includes a sauna and Jacuzzi. The mansion has a custom-made mahogany library and a wet bar. Additionally, there is a private lounge, wine cellar, and a multimedia room. The outside area includes an infinity pool with sweeping views of the Potomac River.
The grounds incorporate a tennis court, mature garden, sun-terraces and afford total privacy. The estate is adequately protected by state of the art security systems, alarms, and surveillance cameras, and the property is as impregnable as Fort Knox, and the entrance gate is manned by private security personnel. Underground parking facilities can accommodate up to thirty vehicles, and it is accessed directly from the main driveway.
There is a separate dwelling on the grounds, which is a beautifully designed, three-bedroom guesthouse. It was crafted by Frank Lloyd Wright way back in 1959, the year it was constructed. The house is shaped like a fish and was initially called The Marden House. It retains some original pieces of furniture, a few paintings, and it has stayed true to its original design. With a price tag of $63 million, it is undoubtedly for billionaires only!
