This comment from Jalopnik hits the nail on the head:
Have you looked at the rest of the house? It shrieks “new money that wants to be taken for old money.” It’s like Laura Ashley vomited all over a Disney version of Monticello.

Honestly, the basement is the least creepy element. Jordan Peele should buy it to film his next horror movie.

Blair same guy has a house down here towards St Michaels, Md $15.5 Million, look at the photos, he has a real Spitfire hanging upside down (sans engine), Also has a P51 and real Spitfire plus a jet at the airport. Did many "renovations" alterations to the house after he bought it from a former Potomac member. https://matrix.brightmls.com/Matrix/...ID=12965190809

I have been through the house and it is a spectacular property, on about 40 acres, small airstrip Super Cub size, on the Miles river just upstream from St Michaels. Blair was born in England and came to USA as a youngster, did well!!

I'll find out for you before we put an offer in. They got it up there so will be able to take it down but might be a lot of work involved

Marie and I happened to drive by the Potomac house yesterday. It is really a beautiful home, as are most others on that end of the street. The other end of the street is, how do you say, just a bit over the top...
