Nestled on a meticulously landscaped private lot in Mount Vernon, 3235 Woodland Lane was thoughtfully constructed by and for renowned custom home builder Yves Fedrigault using prestigious materials and treatments and continually improved over the years to create a distinctive, modern, and spacious home built to the highest global standard. The gracious paved driveway ushers guests onto the property. It reveals countless trained topiaries and a circular motor court centered by a mature evergreen with sculpted boxwoods, presenting a whimsical “welcome home”. Through the hefty solid cedar front door, a barrel-ceilinged central greeting hall introduces a unique, contemporary floor plan representing a refreshing deviation from the mainstream. Reclaimed 120-year-old heart pine flooring, a 400-year-old fireplace, custom windows and doors, and 2x6 framed construction set the tone for the unparalleled unique craftsmanship carried throughout. To the left of the reception area is the formal living room, accessed through tall French doors, with raised ceilings, wide-plank reclaimed wood flooring and an elegantly arched column of built-in bookcases. Dramatic accent lighting carries throughout, making the home an art collector’s dream. Centrally ahead of the foyer is the great room, anchoring the rest of the home, whose large double-sided limestone fireplace flanked by glass double doors allows for the perfect marriage of indoor/outdoor living. The ethereal dining room is generously sized and illuminated via arched picture windows and twin dormers overhead. A butler’s pantry connects the dining room to an authentically rustic gourmet kitchen, with reclaimed 300-year-old French tile, a distinctly intricate backsplash, and custom-milled cabinetry. The finest equipment abounds in the chef’s haven, such as the hammered-copper farmhouse sink and professional-grade appliances. The home also features a top-of-the-line home A/V system with distinct audio zones and interconnected outlets, perfect for streaming music throughout and allowing the owner to access all the lighting and systems with the push of a button. A sunlit breakfast nook elegantly adjoins the kitchen, and a lavish formal powder room with a Restoration Hardware vanity completes the home's common spaces. The main level owner’s suite is an oasis in the greenery, offering direct access to the lush rear garden. A spa-inspired bath with a separate jacuzzi tub, steam shower, separate vanities, and custom twin walk-in closets amply serve the primary suite. Two additional large bedroom suites are found on the main level, establishing this as a proper multigenerational residence. The two bedroom suites upstairs are ample in scale and are a child or teenager’s dream, offering seclusion from the rest of the home. At the rear exterior, strolling through the picture book vine-covered arch reveals a harmonious stone patio, mimicking that of the front motor court. Mature plantings all around, stunning hardscaping with fully-automated irrigation and honey-lit landscape lighting, a large grassy area, and canopy help create a completely private, serene environment where one is isolated from the chores of everyday life. Behind the scenes, a full house generator and twin tankless hot water heaters allow the property to operate at commercial-grade standards, and offer the all-important peace of mind. Located in Alexandria, minutes to the city and barely a mile from George Washington’s famous Mount Vernon Farm, 3235 Woodland Lane showcases the handiwork of countless artisans and represents the ideal blend of tranquility and ultimate convenience.
