Are you a Google executive in Washington D.C. area with a huge pile of money to blow on a contemporary Potomac River house? Nats pitcher Max Scherzer has just the house for you, but it'll cost $15,000,000. That seems like a huge number, but we're talking about a beautiful, massive house just nine miles from the White House. It's going to cost you.
At that price point, you get 8,200 sq. ft. of clean line living space, but think about all the lobbying you'll be able to do in this space. A potential buyer might as well tell Scherzer to throw in the furnishings. It's not like he's taking this stuff to a new place. Max turned 36 this year and bought a place in Jupiter, Florida where the Nats Spring Training complex is located. He's getting to that age where he'll want a comfortable sectional to lounge on. These contemporary chairs that look good on a real estate listing aren't going to get it done.
From Max's realtor:
Perfectly sited above the Brookmont Dam on the Potomac, this stunning estate has 180 degree dramatic river views. Nestled in the trees, this luxurious contemporary features 5 bedrooms, 7 baths, multi-tiered decks, an infinity pool and roof top terrace. Completed in 2017 by an accomplished team comprised of leading architects, builders and designers, this newly constructed home is perfect for large scale entertaining as well as everyday enjoyment of the property's natural setting. The 250' waterfront setting provides a dramatic view in keeping with this uniquely beautiful contemporary residence.
Mortgage: $50,000/mo. (before taxes and someone to clean the windows). Keep in mind the taxes on this place were $66,868 in 2019. Just saying.
