Quarry Springs, a gated community along River Road in Bethesda, is showing off what it’s billing as one of the D.C. region’s largest newly built condos.

Named The Lafayette, the roughly 4,600-square-foot condo that has another 1,300 square feet of terrace space is listed for about $3.95 million, said Valerie Wells, sales director for The Mayhood Company, which is handling sales for the luxury homes.

“Our largest available condominium residence, The Lafayette, reflects the emerging trend that is now common among our target audience for one-level living space with high ceilings and a spacious design,” Larry J. Goodwin , principal of the developer, 1788 Holdings LLC, said in a prepared statement.

The 13-acre “estate” community is named after the historic Stonyhurst Quarry that once operated on the site. Stones from the quarry were used in the National Cathedral, the Bethesda Post Office and The National Zoo, according to the community’s website.

Developer 1788 Holdings has constructed two buildings that have a combined total of 50 units on the property, with the first residents arriving in September 2015. Wells said 70 percent of the units have sold, and 15 remain.

Originally, the Quarry Springs developer planning four condo buildings on the property. However, the plan has since changed to replace two of the condo buildings with 44 townhomes. Construction on the luxury townhomes is expected to begin this fall, with the first units expected to be completed in 2019.
