Books by Eugene L. Meyer
With its ponds, pools and fountains, the Yoskowitzes' Potomac estate is cool to look at.

Article appears in "At Home", a glossy Washington Post publication targeted to high-end area homeowners and not available on-line or by subscription. This is the cover story of the Summer 2005 issue.  An excerpt:

   A stable it is not.
   Never mind that the Dutch-style Potomac mansion is a knock--off of the Gilded Age polo stable of Marshall Field III on Long Island's famed Gold Coast.  In this, once the very heart of horse country, there's not a horse in sight.
   "I used to say, great, we're living in a barn," says Carol Yoskowitz, who with her husband Irvin resides in the large house off Piney Meetinghouse Road.  "We didn't even refer to this as a polo house. Who would want a house modeled after a stable?"
   Stately is probably a better word to describe the 10,000- square-foot, 10-room house and its four acres of grounds, which include fish ponds large and small, a swimming pool and pool house, gurgling fountains and formal gardnes. Built in 1986, it has the feel of a venerable estate.
