Welcome to 833 Herbert Springs Road in Alexandria, VA. This spectacular 10,000 square foot home with its two car detached garage is sited on land once owned by George Washington and is built along the Potomac River offering an ever changing kaleidoscope of river views.
Luxurious but livable, this seven bedroom, six full and two half bath home offers a gracious open floor plan flowing from one large room to the next creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for family life and entertaining.
Every detail in this home has been thought out and beautifully executed from the massive front door to the artistic and architectural details found throughout. Details like the quarter sawn oak floors, nine inch moldings, a classic turret, and 100% copper roofing only add to the character and charm.
In the spacious and airy kitchen, you will find beautiful custom cabinetry, and a large island created from a single slab of honed Calacatta Crema marble. High-end appliances like Miele, Subzero and Wolfe, as well as the the adjoining butler’s pantry, make preparing meals in the delightful kitchen a breeze all while enjoying the views to the Potomac River.
The impeccable taste continues into the living room, anchored by a fireplace with its marble mantle and classic bay windows, which continue to the dining room spacious enough for a large group or intimate family dinners. Tucked in between these two rooms is a private office flooded with sunlight offering a serene space to plan your day or your next event. Off the kitchen is the great room with its faux painted walls, large windows and a fireplace all adding up to a charming space to relax and reconnect.
The spacious floor plan continues on the second level with a wide-open foyer with four generous bedrooms and a master suite you won’t want to leave. The sitting room is an ideal space to start your day or unwind at day’s end. The master bedroom is well appointed with double walk-in closets, and a private owner’s bath with waterworks tile and a luxurious shower.
The ideal recreation room on the lower level offers lots of light and room to kick back and relax. Here you can fire up the popcorn and watch a movie in top-of-the-line two-tiered theater room.
Ideally located along the banks of the Potomac River, 833 Herbert Springs offers simple elegance, tranquil surrounds, and architectural integrity all within easy reach of Old Town Alexandria, Reagan National Airport, George Washington’s Mount Vernon, and Washington D.C. for work or play.
