In the heart of McLean's prestigious Gold Coast, Stratford House stands as a testament to history and elegance. Available for the first time in 50 years, situated on approximately 4 acres, it offers captivating views of the Potomac River and is renowned for its exquisite entertaining spaces. Built in 1973 by descendants of the Lee and Bowman families, this French Provincial masterpiece has been a beacon of sophistication. Approaching the estate, guests are greeted by a charming entrance adorned with a Squirrel and Acorn statue, hinting at the property's storied past. The spacious reception hall sets the tone for the grandeur within, with a sweeping staircase leading to the upper level. Inside, the grand living room boasts a majestic antique marble fireplace and French doors that open onto a terrace overlooking the lush gardens and river beyond. A cozy library, complete with mahogany paneling and another fireplace, invites quiet reflection, while the sunlit solarium offers a tranquil retreat. The dining room is a vision of elegance, with hand-painted wallpaper and French doors leading to a patio ideal for both intimate gatherings and lavish affairs. The east wing also features a second sitting room with a fireplace and a spacious kitchen designed to capture the morning sun. Upstairs, the master suite exudes luxury, with two sitting rooms, separate baths, and dressing rooms, as well as a terrace with panoramic views. Outside, the terraced garden and pool provide a private sanctuary with breathtaking river views. With its blend of history, luxury, and privacy, Stratford House offers a rare opportunity to experience gracious living at its finest, just minutes from downtown Washington, D.C.
