The Corby Mansion, built in 1893 for Francis Newlands, is a landmark in America's first planned suburb designed by Chevy Chase architect Leon E Dessez. A Congressman and Senator from Nevada, Newlands named the estate Ishpiming, meaning high ground in Chippewa. Senator Newlands was the organizer and first president of the Chevy Chase Club as well as a developer with the Chevy Chase Land Company. This highly coveted landmark estate prompted official inquiries regarding it serving as the Vice Presidents residence. The estate was instead sold to Mothers Bread heir William S. Corby in 1909.Originally designed in a more subdued monochromatic style, The Corby Mansion was remodeled and expanded by architect Arthur Heaton between 1911 and 1914. The estate now boasts 22 timeless rooms including a large mahogany library, music room with Aeolian organ pipes, and a grand ballroom used by the homes prior residents to entertain global power brokers, foreign dignitaries, politicians and presidents. Artfully designed and finished, this landmark Tudor revival estate is prominently situated on two acres of land bordering Washington D.C.
