First, a look at this week’s featured home by the numbers: It has 11 bedrooms, 265 windows, 49 closets, 18 toilets, six kitchens and two saunas.

Plus, there’s the ballroom, beauty salon, indoor heated pool and billards room.

“It’s perfect for entertaining,” Jordan Fainberg of Long & Foster said of the 35,000-square-foot house. “It’s got incredible flow.”

The Bethesda home was built for Rashid A. Chaudary, chief executive of manufacturing firm Raani Corporation. It has a four-story elevator, as well as tennis courts and a finished basement.

“Even though it’s a huge mansion, it’s still cozy for family living,” Fainberg said. “A family could live here without feeling like they need walkie-talkies.”

The home has been on the market for nearly two years. It was originally listed for $8.9 million but has since been reduced to $6.9 million.

Listing: 7013 Natelli Woods Lane
