From the former estate of Jordan’s king and queen on the Potomac in Maryland to an elegant waterfront home in Sydney, these are four featured notable properties for sale over $20 million.
Sited at the top of a gentle knoll on the banks of the Potomac River sits an elegant château clad in French limestone. This mansion was the formal estate of Jordan’s King Hussein and Queen Noor. The main parcel and structure were acquired from the King and Queen in 2000. Subsequently, the owner has thoughtfully acquired six adjacent parcels furthering to beautify and expand this grand and private 15-acre riverfront property. The estate is a collaboration between renowned architect, John Ike, designer, Geoffrey Bradfield, and Horizon Builders. The three worked effortlessly together to create this impressive four-story mansion constructed with French milled limestone and a slate Mansard roof punctuated with limestone dormers.
Situated at a Ford Avenue cul-de-sac, close to Leedon Park in Singapore’s prime district 10, this nearly 10,000,000 square-foot home stands handsomely on a 15,600 sq ft plot of land amidst lush greenery. The house is separated from the neighbouring properties by dense wild foliage and a canal on three sides. When dusk falls, the beauty of the house changes to another ambience altogether. One could almost forget that he is in Singapore when the night falls and the moonlight shines on the water, reflecting the light into the midnight blue sky.
