Amazing Whole House Remodel in Potomac, Maryland

Grand Potomac Masterpiece came from Humble beginnings




The existing house was a large, sprawling rambler, with no real character. It had a good solid foundation, and a breathtaking 2 acre lot.The owners wanted a home reminiscent of a historic early American country estate. Large enough for a growing family, and a fully functioning home office, yet warm, welcoming, and comfortable.


The existing house was demolished to the first floor. The new home was completely redesigned to fit almost completely on the existing foundation. A rear addition was created for the new Family and Breakfast rooms.

This home has everything the owners wished for:

  • Impressive entrance foyer with custom herringbone hardwood floors, and historically correct millwork around every doorway.
  • Elegantly appointed formal rooms off each side of the Foyer for large scale entertaining and functions. Again, site built millwork by master carpenters are apparent in every view.
  • Chefs Kitchen with custom built cabinetry, professional appliances, granite countertops, and designer faucets. There is even a pot filler behind the range to eliminate an extra trim to the sink.
  • The Family room boasts large sun filled windows, with incredible views of the property. 6 piece beamed “coffered” ceiling, and wood burning fireplace with custom designed and built surround and detailed wall above.
  • The Master suite features a sitting room, Bed room, his and hers closets to die for, and a large luxury spa like bathroom with heated marble floors and every conceivable amenity.


The overall goal in designing and building this home, was to give it the presense and character of a 100 year old country estate, with all the modern amenities and conveniences of a modern 21st century house. Mission accomplished!
