The Maryland suburb of Potomac has long been identified as the location for many of the Washington area’s most opulent homes, with mansions set alongside gently rolling roads and a nearby village for shopping and dining.

Now NVHomes is building 41 estate homes at Greenbriar Preserve in Potomac, each on a homesite of a quarter-acre to 1 acre, with 3,420 to 5,618 finished square feet and the option of adding more finished rooms.

All five home styles at Greenbriar Preserve include three sides of brick with a brick stoop and Hardiplank siding on the back of the home.

Paving stones lead from the driveway to the front walk and to the sidewalks, and each home includes professional landscaping and a two-car garage.

Inside, each home has four bedrooms, two to four full baths and a powder room.

Standard features include 9-foot ceilings on all three levels, a gas fireplace with a marble surround, an oak staircase, crown moldings, wainscoting in the dining room, a ceiling medallion and chandelier in the foyer and hardwood flooring in the foyer, dining room, living room, study, family room and powder room.

The baths and the laundry room feature ceramic tile flooring. Various rooms have tray, coffered or cathedral ceilings. The baths have granite counters, and the master bath includes a glass-enclosed shower and a tub.

Each home also has gas heat, gas hot water, a security system, wiring for cable and telephone systems and recessed lighting. Kitchens include granite counters, 42-inch maple cabinets and a pantry or butler’s pantry.

Base prices at Greenbriar Preserve range from $1,549,990 to $2,060,990, with homeowner association fees of $209 per month.

The homes can be customized with sunrooms, conservatories, room extensions, bonus rooms and morning rooms.

The Mount Vernon model, with 5,618 finished square feet, is priced from $2,060,990. This home features dramatically shaped rooms.

The foyer features a 20-foot ceiling and leads into the reception hall, which has a tray ceiling and columns. The main staircase rises along the rear wall of the home and has been set into an alcove with a bay-windowed landing on the main and upper levels.

The formal dining room includes a tray ceiling and is across the foyer from the generously sized formal living room. In one corner of the home is a private study, which includes a foyer entrance with a tray ceiling, a walk-in closet and a powder room.

Buyers can add bay windows, built-in bookcases and French doors to the study.

On the opposite side of the main staircase is the family room, a two-level space with a coffered ceiling, a fireplace and a wall of windows. Decorative columns separate the family room with the open center island kitchen. Adjacent to the kitchen is a gazebo-shaped breakfast room, nearly surrounded by windows and French doors.

This level also includes a mudroom with a closet and a bench, a laundry room and a second staircase near the kitchen.

The upper-level master suite features a foyer entrance with tray ceiling, a bedroom with a tray ceiling and a separate, octagonal-shaped sitting room with multiple windows. The bath has a cathedral ceiling, a tub placed on a platform reached by steps, a shower with a seat, a built-in three-way mirror, a linen closet and two walk-in closets.

Each of the three additional bedrooms includes a walk-in closet and a private full bath.
