The incredible home at 11705 Centurion Way sold for $3,300,000 in November. Let’s look at what made this listing so special.
A spectacular estate in Potomac
This spectacular Mediterranean villa is nestled at the very end of the prestigious Palatine in a setting akin to a private resort. Designed by and custom-built for the late visionary painter Howard Behrens, this home is every bit equal to one of his great works of art. This is a truly one-of-a-kind estate that encompasses carefully curated finishes and painstaking craftsmanship.
Step through the double doors into the grand foyer featuring a sweeping, circular staircase that ends gracefully on the upper mezzanine. Custom classic yet trend-forward details abound, such as arched stone entryways, floor-to-ceiling casement windows, and unique spaces such as the light-filled octagonal conservatory. The gorgeous travertine floors are laid in a Versailles pattern throughout, flowing between formal and informal areas. The true jaw-dropper is the soaring two-story great room.
At the heart of the home, you’ll find a brand-new, fully-equipped chef’s kitchen with custom cabinetry, double islands, and luxurious quartzite countertops. In this room, you’ll have everything you need to cook gourmet meals and space to sit to enjoy them as well. On the main level, you’ll also find a private office and a full-bedroom suite. Upstairs, you’ll discover a sumptuous primary suite, whose sleeping area rests under a podium suspended from the vaulted ceiling. The adjoining bath resembles some of the finest spas in the world and offers direct access to the private terrace.
Along the upper gallery, take your pick of three ample bedrooms each with its own ensuite bath. Descending the grand staircase reveals a lower level perfect for displaying artwork or hosting large-scale gatherings. Warm Spanish tile floors flow through this space, while a multitude of custom niches and accent lighting create a spectacular treat for the eye.
Anything but basic, this home offers every amenity—including a private fitness center, a media room, a wine cellar, a second full kitchen and bedroom suite, and much more. Outdoors, the impeccable attention to detail continues. Extensive landscaping, outdoor entertaining space, a gazebo, gas lanterns, lush trees, and sports courts provide a true resort experience with total privacy. The adjacent creek and two deep koi ponds complete the estate.
