As a realtor at TTR Sotheby’s International Realty, I see plenty of beautiful and luxurious homes.
The D.C. Metro area real estate market may not be New York City or Los Angeles but we certainly have our fair share of beautiful homes and swanky addresses. TTR Sotheby’s private exclusive listings currently include a breathtaking home with unparalleled views of the Potomac in McLean priced at $62,950,000 and a stunning estate in Georgetown for $18,750,000.
I am often at awe with the beautiful architecture, interior design and stately elegance of these homes. McLean is well known for its large homes, prestigious addresses and powerful, wealthy residents. One of the swankiest neighborhoods in McLean is Ballantrae Farms.
Ballantrae Farms features prominent homes with even more prominent owners. If you are seeking a home where you can rub elbows with the elite; CEOs, politicians, leaders of industry, Ballantrae Farms is the prestigious address you are looking for.
1285 Ballantrae Farm Drive McLean is currently on the market for $2,700,000. This custom built home features approximately 7,720 finished sq. ft. and over 10,000 total sq.ft. This home features elegant details and large spaces for entertaining. The home was built by international builder and developer John Georgelas as his own personal home. Relax at the outdoor courtyard pool or entertain at the large wet bar. The home needs some modern touches but in Ballantrae Farms, under $3M, the possibilities are endless.
Here is the listing for 1285 Ballantrae Farm Drive:
