A serene wooded lot provides the backdrop for this world-class contemporary home in Potomac’s premier neighborhood of Falconhurst. Built in 1990, 10017 Bentcross has undergone extensive renovations to form a seamless blend of luxurious interior living and immaculate outdoor entertainment space. Soaring ceilings and endless walls of windows create a sundrenched floor plan that flows effortlessly outside to an unparalleled hardscape backyard, making this an entertainer’s absolute dream home.
A gated circular drive leads to the front entrance of this bespoke three-level residence, featuring 6 bedrooms, 6 full and 3 half baths across 10,710 square feet of living space. The two-story foyer greets guests with floor-to-ceiling windows, impeccable oak floors, and an abundance of natural light. Just off of the foyer, a sunken living room, with gas limestone fireplace and vaulted ceilings, is surrounded by expansive floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the rear patio. An adjacent office (one of two in the home) features recessed lighting and hidden, custom built-ins. A main-level master bedroom includes 20+ ft. ceilings and a sitting room with fireplace and deck access. An en-suite master bath showcases luxurious marble flooring and finishes, a walk-in shower, soaking tub, vanity, and dual walk-in closets with ample dressing areas.
On the opposite side of the foyer is a well-appointed dining room with vaulted glass ceilings, while a sunken great room is highlighted by a gas fireplace and a granite wet bar. A sun-soaked kitchen boasts features that will please the most discerning chef, including contemporary concrete countertops, dual Wolf ovens, Sub-Zero fridge, Jenn-Air freezer, double sinks, center island with six-burner range (plus grill top and cook top), and two dishwashers. The breakfast area leads to a stunning sunroom that overlooks the pool and patio. A folding glass wall system with retracting screens (by NanaWall) surrounds the sunroom and opens to the patio, transcending the space between everyday living quarters and the natural beauty of the outdoors.
Grand, modern staircases lead to the second level of the home, where four additional bedrooms (one currently configured as an office) all include expansive windows, high ceilings, and en-suite baths. For the buyer in search of a private workout space, the lower level is showcased by an incomparable gym that rivals any exercise facility found in luxury resorts, and includes high-end equipment, floor-to-ceiling mirrors, oversized ceiling fans, and a large TV. And, for those looking to simply relax and enjoy a movie, a 12-seat theater with projector and wet bar is the perfect spot. The lower level is complete with a bedroom, one-and-a-half baths, storage space, media closet, a whole-house generator, and an additional laundry room.
Professionally landscaped grounds outline Arizona flagstone hardscaping in the backyard, which is centered on a breathtaking infinity pool and spa, crafting a private and tranquil retreat or the setting for large-scale outdoor entertainment. Rounding out the 2.28 acre lot is an outdoor kitchen, lighted tennis court, children’s playground, and a gated “pet walk” space. This one-of-a-kind offering is complete with three fireplaces, a whole-home audio system, three-car garage, and a gated driveway, all within a short drive to Potomac Village, Downtown Washington, and three major airports.
