House of the Day: Potomac River Contemporary

This stunning, museum-like, $9 million contemporary in McLean, Va., was designed by the famed architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen in the early 1980s.

Jacobsen, widely known for his modern pavilion-based residences, also designed Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' Martha's Vineyard home around the same time, as well as an addition to the United States Capitol in 1993.

The home sits on over 2 acres and boasts over 700 feet of water frontage on the Potomac River. The striking residence offers four bedrooms and six bathrooms, and features breathtaking woodland and waterside views from almost every room. The furnishings are just as sharp and modern as the house's sleek exterior. Among its abundant luxury amenities are a spa and a sauna; the property also features a cantilevered swimming pool.

Michael Schaeffer of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage has the listing.
