There are mansions, and then there are hefty mansions that can only be described as “mega” thanks to their vast square footage. “The Cliffs,” a McLean, Virginia, estate that lives up to its name, is one of those mansions.
It’s on the real estate market for $39 million.
The almost 40,000-square-foot home sits on five acres on the cliffs overlooking the Potomac River and is considered “one of the most beautiful homes on the East Coast,” according to its listing on Zillow.com.
The eight-bedroom, 13-bathroom home offers many fancy amenities, which seem to match the views that cascade through almost every window.

“Unquestionably, the setting is the most spectacular on the Potomac River that I have ever seen,” listing agent Mark Lowham told Mansion Global. “The design really maximizes views of the site, and gives every room a beautiful view of the river. Obviously some rooms capture bigger views … but they all have views, which is very unusual.”
McLean is about 10 miles northwest of downtown Washington, D.C.
