At the end of a quiet, woodsy cul-de-sac in exclusive McLean, sits a handsome custom Colonial in turn-key condition. Offering four bedrooms, 3.5 baths and a 5,300 square foot floorplan, this welcoming home with its wood-shingled roof has plenty of space and has been extensively remodeled by its current owners. With nearly two acres of land, a deep setback, gently rolling lawns and a fabulous swimming pool, you’ll never want to leave!
Entering the spacious front foyer, a grand staircase and soaring two-story cathedral ceiling is revealed. The main level delivers a delightful organic flow from one room to the next, plus brand new and original hardwood floors that have been meticulously refinished to match. A large formal dining room features built-in cabinets, crown molding and wainscoting, while the front living room bestows plenty of sunshine from floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as a charming fireplace and built-ins.
A completely renovated kitchen offers a host of new features, including Thermador stainless steel appliances and gas range, white granite counters, and gorgeous pendent lighting over a fantastic breakfast bar/prep island. This is a highly enjoyable place to spend time as meals are being prepared. It’s also wide open to a large breakfast room with huge windows and new multi-paned wood sliders leading out to a massive deck. You can bring your food outside or grill on the terrace!
Adjacent to the kitchen is a huge family room with exquisite overhead beams, plus a fireplace that was relined and upgraded in 2019, set into a magnificent wall of stone. French doors open onto the deck! A new wet bar has been repositioned so as to open up the passage between adjoining rooms. At the rear of the house is a study with wainscoting and full height built-ins, a powder room and a mudroom/office/laundry with cabinets, sink and new washer and dryer.
The upper level is home to sleeping quarters with pristine carpets. The owner’s suite boasts high ceilings, a sitting room, front dormers, two giant walk-in closets and a luxurious en-suite bath with granite double-sink vanity. There are three more spacious bedrooms, one of which is extra-large, with walk-in closet and direct access to the full hallway bath. A large landing with hardwood floors gazes down at the front foyer below.
Stairs lead from the main level to a fully remodeled and built-out basement, featuring a giant recreation room with gas fireplace, built-ins, windows and new wide-plank flooring. There is also a new full bath, storage, a private exit leading outside and doors leading to the garage.
The surrounding acreage is showcased by manicured lawns and gardens, sweeping updates to the landscaping, a large patio and a spectacular fenced swimming pool with a bath house. Imagine the summer pool parties, along with cookouts and croquet on the grass! Among the many extras are a two-car garage, a large storage/utility room and wonderful views of the adjoining parkland. It’s a luxurious lifestyle home for those who enjoy natural tranquility, while still being close to all that Washington Metro has to offer.
The gracious Colonial at 1001 Union Church Road is located at the end of a quiet, tree-lined cul-de-sac in the heart of McLean. You certainly won’t have to worry about drive-through traffic! The Rocky Run stream winds right past the perimeter of the property. You’ll be able to connect easily with Old Dominion Road, Georgetown Pike and the Capital Beltway as you wind through the community and Fairfax County, as well as Bethesda and Washington, DC.
This quiet enclave is close to the Potomac River and numerous greenspaces, including Great Falls Park, Difficult Run Stream Valley Park and Scott’s Run Nature Preserve. Camp Greenway, one of Virginia’s best summer day camp for kids, is about a mile away. Local public schools include Spring Hill Elementary, Cooper Middle, and Langley High which is lauded for its rigorous academic programs and excellent student to teacher ratio. Also in the neighborhood is the Madeira School, a private day and boarding prep school for girls.
The historic village of McLean dates back to the turn of the 20th century. These days, it maintains an unparalleled reputation as an exclusive residential suburb with all of the modern day creature comforts, including shopping, restaurants, swimming and tennis, and delightful farmers market. Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts is nearby, as is Tysons Corner Center, Virginia’s premiere shopping destination.
