Virginia’s approximately 40,000-square-foot mega-condominium is on the market for $ 39 million, making it the second most expensive listing in the state.
Residences in McLean, Virginia, offer a range of amenities, from basketball courts to collectors’ garages. But according to Mark Lowham, a list agent at TTR Sotheby’s International Realty, its perch on the cliffs of the Potomac River really makes it stand out.
“Undoubtedly, this setting is the most spectacular Potomac River I have ever seen,” he said. “This design maximizes the view of the site and provides beautiful views of the river in all rooms. Obviously, some rooms have a larger view, but from all rooms. You can see the scenery. This is very unusual. “
About 10 miles from downtown Washington, DC, the mansion was built for over eight years by its current owner, Roger Modi, and his wife, Kyle. Modi, 57, is a monumental sports partner who owns several US sports venues and teams, including the Washington Capitals of the NHL. He is also the former Chairman and CEO of SIGNAL Corporation, a government information technology contractor that sold for $ 227 million in 2002.
According to PropertyShark records, in 2013, Mody acquired the underlying real estate in a $ 5 million transaction involving multiple parcels. Mr. Modi’s representative did not immediately respond to the request for comment.
Built as the home of Modi’s family of six, the house has a traditional look inspired by French local architecture, but with a modern, transitional interior. According to Roham, it was designed for both quiet nights and large-scale entertainment.
“The room is beautifully scaled,” he explained. “Not only are they comfortable living every day, but they are also comfortable at parties with about 200 close friends.”
At that point, there is a large lawn where 200 friends can mix in the water or in one of the fire pits. There is also a collector’s garage where hosts can show off up to 22 cars or clean up and dine.
“It was designed to double as a huge dining room,” Roham said.
Conversely, there are more intimate areas, such as salons and dining rooms, with gas fireplaces that are “cozy, comfortable and enjoyable overlooking the river.”
Other amenities include an indoor and outdoor pool, a half-basketball court, a glass-enclosed round breakfast room, a wine room with a quartz crystal wine storage area and a wet bar, a gaming room, and a primary suite that occupies the entire second floor. According to the list, of one wing of the house.
Homes with so many facilities may be common in some areas, but are “very distinctive” in the Washington, DC market, Lowham said. In addition, house prices in the city are still a “worthy opportunity.”
“Our global citizens are back, and I think this is really attractive to them,” he said. “By world standards, it’s a tremendous value.”
