10408 Stapleford Hall Drive

Potomac, Maryland MD20854-4452

A masterful collaboration between renowned architect Glenn Chen Fong, McHale Landscape designer Julie Patronik, and interior designer Gerald Smith, this extraordinary four-acre estate is truly unparalleled. With a decidedly European influence, the French Country Manor is wrapped in imported stone and Boral brick, with hand-hewn rough-sawn columns and braces, lush gardens, and a host of stunning outdoor spaces. Approached by a long tree-lined tumble-paved drive, the majestic residence features incredible roof-lines and stature, balanced perfectly by enchanting flowered window boxes and stone terraces. Offering 14,000 square feet of living space, the home has consistent finishing on every floor: with the lower level as beautiful as the main and upper floors. There are fabulous sight lines from every angle, with the outdoors seamlessly blended into the fabric of the home. The primary spaces include reception areas, elegant formal living and dining rooms, and the kitchen of any chef’s dream. The main level conservatory is appointed with a 27-foot vaulted ceiling, creating a space that is simply magical. Articulating ceilings with antique beams and a 300 year old imported French fireplace lend Old World style, while the home is finished with every state-of-the-art system imaginable. There is a climate-controlling geothermal HVAC system, an elevator, a commercial grade whole-house generator, 3 wells for outdoor irrigation and a complex low-voltage electrical system that controls lighting, climate, audio, video and security. The main level is perfect for lavish entertaining, but equally suited for gracious day-to-day living. A circular stair adorned with a custom iron rail spirals to a piano-curve landing where there are 5 spacious bedrooms, 4 full baths, and a sitting room/family room. The owner’s retreat is enhanced with a wet bar, his-and-hers walk in closets, and a balcony. It opens to a loft and overlooks the conservatory. Designed for entertaining on any scale, the lower level includes a billiards room, a recreation room, a fitness center, a 3-D media center, two bedrooms and two full baths, and an expansive grotto with a fireplace and views of the patio, fountain, and spectacular sunsets. With every consideration for luxurious living, the lower level also features a professionally designed wine cellar and tasting room. Imitating the look of a classic French Country cottage, the three-car garage adjoins the main house and one and a half car garage via a curved breezeway. Ensconced in its private four-acre setting, this home seems worlds away, but it has easy access to the Village and to urban amenities. An amazing collaboration of form and function, this is an extraordinary property in every sense of the word.
