Crown Prince of Iran Reza Pahlavi Lists His Royal Residence in Potomac, MD, for $3.1M.

Records indicate, however, that an elegant property in this Washington, DC, metro community belongs to the Crown Prince of Iran, Reza Pahlavi. The home was last purchased in 1996 for $1.25 million, and the prince has reportedly been caring for and renovating it ever since.

The surprisingly understated, gated compound includes a seven-bedroom, 7.5-bath, stone-and-brick clad, Georgian-style main house, as well as a large carriage house with parking and living accommodations.

The buildings, which total 11,522 square feet, were first erected in 1989. With extensive custom millwork, towering ceilings, four wood-burning fireplaces, and hardwood floors, this home is the picture of discreet elegance.
