Corby Mansion, Chevy Chase, Maryland


Offered at $22,500,000

The Corby Mansion, built in 1893 for Senator Francis Newlands, is a landmark in America’s first planned suburb designed by Chevy Chase architect Leon E. Dessez. The highly coveted mansion prompted official inquiries regarding the possibility of its serving as the Vice President’s residence, but it was instead sold to “Mother’s Bread” heir William S. Corby in 1909. Originally designed in a subdued monochromatic style, The Corby Mansion was remodeled and expanded by architect Arthur Heaton between 1911 and 1914 to create the Tudor Revival that today commands two acres bordering Washington, D.C. and boasts 22 timeless rooms highlighted by a large mahogany library, a music room with Aeolian organ pipes, and a grand ballroom used in the past to entertain global power brokers, foreign dignitaries, politicians, and presidents.
