At first glance you might think this is a mansion built at least at the turn of the last century. The elegant Georgian-style Fessenden House was built just 20 years ago in 1994, designed by famed architect Leon Chatelain and built by Gibson Builders. The grand residence is located just minutes away from White House. A neoclassical masterpiece, mansion features an array of fine arts and luxury furnishings. It is now listed with Christie’s Real Estate and asking a hefty $22 million for it.
Starting from architecture, the Fessenden House is constructed with best available material such as Indiana limestone made façade, custom bricks and lead-coated copper gutters. Its interior features top quality finishes of inlaid white oak rift and quartered floors, Crotch mahogany doors and Italian marble.
Interior highlights include floor to ceiling windows and doors that offer plenty of sunlight, terraces and a curved staircase that gives the home a stately look. The 20,000 square-ft home boasts 7 bedrooms including a spacious master bedroom and 9.5 bathrooms. There are grand formal rooms to welcome visitors, plenty of guest rooms and staff quarters. Plenty of other modern conveniences as well – a temperature controlled wine cellar, an elevator and gas fireplaces.
On outdoors there is a swimming pool, a pool house and a half size sports court. The house is surrounded by an acre of land that consists of beautiful landscaped formal and informal English gardens, variety of trees, hedges, flowers and fountains. The terraces and the loggia offer stunning views of the gardens. There are plenty of parking available via a motor court and a garage.
