Enjoy life in this masterpiece of a home in Potomac’s exclusive Merry-Go-Round Farm. Located at 13309 Drews Lane, the nearly 8,200-square-foot home offers a tranquil private retreat less than 20 miles from downtown Washington, D.C., and is available for $3.65 million.

The home is built from the finest quality materials and has been meticulously maintained. The community is perfect for nature lovers and tennis players, and it has one of the closest equestrian centers to Washington, D.C., providing horse boarding and riding lessons.

Merry-Go-Round Farm is a family-friendly enclave of 79 custom-built homes surrounded by 140 acres of pristine pastures and rolling hills. This unique community includes an equestrian center, walking and horse riding trails, lakes, streams, a gym, lighted tennis courts, wildlife and beautiful views of the Potomac River. 

It is constructed of stucco and cedar siding and blends well with its surroundings. A covered flagstone wraparound porch has cedar ceilings with recessed lighting that welcomes you to the mahogany front door. You’ll greet guests in style in the spacious foyer with limestone floor that opens to a living room with stone fireplace and double French doors leading to the rear terrace.

It will be easy to cook for a crowd in the chef’s kitchen with Wolf range, Sub-Zero refrigerator and long center island. Gather your guests for before-dinner drinks in the family room accented with a stone floor-to-ceiling fireplace, built-in entertainment center and window seats. In warm weather, open the three sets of French doors to extend the party to the flagstone terrace surrounding the pool.

The sunroom is perfect for informal dining or reading a good book. This room’s windows are glass panels that slide open to capture warm breezes and peaceful pasture views. Your family celebrations and dinner parties will be remembered in the spacious dining room by the crackling fire from the corner stone fireplace.

Upstairs, you’ll find a luxurious master suite with stone fireplace, spalike bath and large, well-designed closet to store all your clothes, shoes and jewelry in style. On this floor, there are two additional comfortable bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. Each of the bedrooms on this level has its own HVAC zone to regulate comfort.

There are two sets of stairs leading to the lower level, which offers something for everyone. Here, you’ll find a gym, theater, office, garage and wine cellar with the capability to hold more than 700 wine bottles. Overnight visitors will enjoy privacy in the guest bedroom with en suite bathroom and sitting area also located on this level.

You’ll love entertaining friends or some quiet time on the flagstone terrace with the calming sound of the pool fountains. This spectacular outdoor area also features a hot tub, pool house, fireplace and food preparation area.
