Mansion of the Sun or ChÃ¢teau du Soleil was inspired by the finest traditions of 18th century French architecture. A gated entrance introduces the estate which spans over 3.8 acres in the heart of the revered Langley Farms neighborhood, distinguishing it as one of the largest estates in this storied enclave.Â A gracious driveway leads through meticulous gardens and specimen trees to reveal the 22,000 square foot, limestone and brick mansion discretely positioned on the top of the hill.ÂÂ Massive wrought-iron doors introduce the interiors which are both grand in proportions and finishes. An impressive plaster dome soars above the foyer and hints at the intricate plaster molding and custom finishes found throughout the home. Italian marble blends seamlessly with contemporary white oak hardwoods and forged iron railings. Throughout the estate, dozens of custom crystal chandeliers illuminate throughout the expansive and open floor plan.Â Positioned across the entry hall, the richly paneled library would be right at home as the centerpiece of an Ivy League Club.Â Just beyond, the grand ballroom appointed with floor-to-ceiling mirrors was inspired by the opulence of the Palace of Versailles. Upstairs, the primary suite spans a total of 3,300 square feet and boasts panoramic views of the pool and the gardens beyond. Not to be overshadowed, the primary closet encompasses 1,100 square feet and spans two levels with the finest Italian cabinetry and custom lighting throughout.Â The nine additional bedroom suites are also gracious and include ensuite baths featuring stunning mosaic work and beautiful views of the gardens.Â Separate guest or staff quarters are discretely positioned above the garage. The list of amenities continues elsewhere in the mansion: a spa with a massage room, sauna, fitness center, private hair salon, safe room, three wet bars, four kitchenettes (in addition to a main and spice kitchen) a wine cellar, card room, and a professional home cinema are among the amenities in this luxurious retreat. A full-service elevator accesses all four levels of the mansion. Outdoors, expansive terraces overlook a modern lap pool surrounded by dancing fire bowls, fountains and a dramatic waterfall. A fire pit, separate cabana, and a 250-inch outdoor television provide yet another dramatic venue for outdoor entertaining. Extensive landscaping includes a large koi pond, jogging path, and a French garden inspired by palaces in Normandy. Behind the scenes, commercial-grade equipment allows the entire estate to be self-sufficient and secure; a full-house generator ensures continuous power.Â Smart home technology equipment controls lighting, the sound system, HVAC, and security systems and can be controlled via voice activation anywhere in the world. Ten HVAC zones provide separate thermostats for each bedroom, and 30 cameras around the fully-fenced and gated property provide an additional layer of security. After the sun sets, 350 landscape lights illuminate the estate, and a full irrigation system keeps the landscaping lush and verdant. For the car enthusiast, there are five stacked parking spaces available â enough to house a collection of ten automobiles. An additional, separately deeded building site within the estate provides room for a separate guest house, gatehouse, and 30 additional parking spaces. Situated an equidistant and just a mile from the George Washington Memorial Parkway and the Capital Beltway, convenience is part of the equation as the estate is only 15 minutes from the White House, embassies, fine dining, and entertainment venues in Washington. World-class shopping at the Tysons Galleria is less than ten minutes away.Â The mansion is under construction, fully enclosed, and scheduled for completion 12/31. Unquestionably, ChÃ¢teau du Soleil is a rare example of uncompromising luxury and one of the finest properties ever to be offered in the region.
Elmwood represents a unique opportunity to own a rambling estate and historic residence inside the Capital Beltway. The property includes a grand farmhouse, built in 1905, with an attached wing constructed in 1879. Together they form a seven-bedroom home, tied together with generous wrap-around porches and patios for entertaining. A four-room log cabin and other outbuildings are situated in their original historic locations near the main house. Two additional lots, each 1 acre, have been added to the original property bringing the total acreage to 8.02. A mile from McLeanâs central business district, the residence is set back from Old Dominion Drive, accessed by a curving 700+ foot private driveway. The grounds feature significant mature hardwoods, pines, azaleas, and a formally landscaped entrance courtyard with fountain. Distinguished television journalist Roger Mudd and his wife acquired the property in 1972 and through significant restoration, made Elmwood their family home for almost fifty years. Originally part of the Fairfax Land grant, âElmwoodâ has been a working farm and family estate since the early 18th century. The original house was built in 1850 by Spencer Mottrom Ball but was destroyed during the Civil War. After the War, Ballâs son William Selwyn (âSellyâ) returned to Elmwood, building the log âBachelorâs Hallâ in 1876 and a larger house in 1879. In 1900, John McLean, owner of the Washington Post, was granted a charter to build The Washington and Old Dominion railroad from Rosslyn to Great Falls. McLean bought rights of way along what would eventually become Old Dominion Drive, and the Ball family Family sold access through Elmwood; the stop there was then called âBallâs Hill." The surrounding public roads - including Ballâs Hill Road, Mottrom Drive and others - capture some of the propertyâs history.
