Built in 1919, Merrywood Estate is known as one of the finest private estates in the Washinton, D.C. region. The childhood home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Merrywood has been host to presidents, dignitaries, business leaders, artists and countless others. Sotheby’s is proud to list this historic home.
Rich in history the estate sits on seven acres overlooking the Potomac River in McLean, Virginia. The grounds boast an impressive main house, breathtaking gardens, a sun drenched pavilion, two pools and a carriage house. The main residence is built with brick and limestone in the traditional Georgian Style.
Renowned designer Barry Dixon bedecked the interior of the home, with a first floor featuring rooms to accommodate large gatherings as well as intimate family occasions. A number of bedrooms grace the upstairs levels, and an expansive master suite features his and her dressing rooms, a private study, and exercise studio.
Walking outdoors adds to the grader of the estate with elegant formal gardens fit for a variety of occasions, a pavilion with full kitchen, changing rooms, an additional exercise studio and indoor pool. The outdoor space is completed by a lighted tennis court and second pool. A carriage house is large enough for four automobiles and also includes an estate office, security office and accommodations for staff.
Merrywood Estate’s matchless location with sweeping Potomac River views and storied history as home and gathering place to some of the world’s leaders make this property unparalleled. For more information click here.
