Inside The Falls, the Washington Metropolitan Region’s Most Expensive Listing

Welcome to The Falls, the most expensive residential real estate listing in the history of the Washington Metropolitan Region.

The late estate of James V. Kimsey, co-founder of America Online (AOL), this extraordinary residence sits on a private 3.2 acre parcel overlooking the Potomac River.

The Falls features stunning views of the Potomac River
Set along McLean, Virginia’s iconic Gold Coast, a stone’s throw from the iconic Merrywood estate, The Falls features nearly 50,000 square feet of interior living space and offers some of the most stunning views in the Washington Metropolitan Region.
The bespoke interiors were brought to life by renowned designer, Thomas Pheasant.

Among luxury amenities such as an infinity pool and a private wine cellar, The Falls includes Marden House, an original Frank Lloyd Wright home.

The historic Marden House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright

Built in 1959 by the legendary architect, Marden House is one of the only remaining Frank Lloyd Wright homes in Virginia. Named after Luis Marden, writer, photographer, and explorer for National Geographic, the residence was acquired by Kimsey shortly after purchasing the parcel upon which the main residence was built.

The Falls is presented by Russell Firestone and Mark C. Lowham of TTR Sotheby's International Realty.
