Step into a hidden colonial enclave surrounded by huge perimeter trees and an in-ground pool making it one of the most private settings in Northern Virginia. This grand luxury home, situated in McLean, is located within a couple of miles of the West Falls Church Subway and Metro system, and just within a few miles of both National and Dulles Airports.
This home has an open floor plan filled with upgrades, from hardwood floors throughout downstairs and upstairs, granite countertops, and GE Monogram stainless steel appliances featuring a self-cleaning oven, a six burner stove, with a built-in microwave and range. The open breakfast area is just waiting for you to fire up the burners for your first meal pulling side items from the butler’s pantry. There’s also a great room that models as a home office or library with picturesque windows looking out over the backyard.
You’ll discover added skylights just so you can hear the rain tap on the glass. What feels like an all glass house is filled with warmth and hospitality.
Another special amenity are the double pane windows traveling from floor to cathedral ceilings providing a ‘walk in the clouds’ experience every which way you turn. You’ll notice the crown molding complete with a chandelier that easily comes down from the ceiling for a cleaning along with the ability to switch on the marble gas fireplace to calm cold evenings. This warm home has been well lived in, and cared for, and it’s now ready to open itself to a new family.
Picture yourself entertaining scores of guests near the island kitchen then walking out to a wrap-around porch overseeing the in-ground pool. The enchanted gardens and special decks will have your guests feeling right at home before they jump into the pool.
Directly off the kitchen is a 3-level bump-out professional studio/In-law suite/au pair suite on the Main level with a private patio with flag stone, iron fence. This is a private suite where you can watch endless films then slip out onto the private patio for a cocktail. Currently the garage has been converted into this efficiency apartment but can easily be converted back into a garage. Heading downstairs, you’ll discover an expansive basement with windows galore and endless storage possibilities.
Slip upstairs after a hectic day on the double/dual staircase to the upstairs balcony which remains open to the great room below so you can still listen to the end of conversations. Upstairs you’ll discover four stately bedrooms that come well equipped with hefty closet space. Your little ones will enjoy their new rooms. The Master bedroom
is the piece de resistance with an added living area to read the latest novel and the master bath contains both a shower and huge tub with those ever-present windows looking out over the private grounds.
All in all, this one of a kind gem is waiting exploration. You can feel the stories that have shaped these select rooms, inviting you to start your own journey in this stately home.
