Sited on a nearly 1.5 acre lot in a private enclave of prestigious McLean, Virginia, this elegant, gated property enjoys beautiful landscaping and a spectacular pool. Constructed of brick and cast stone, the nearly 11,000 square foot residence boasts over $2 million in upgrades that include a gourmet kitchen by Cameo, windows, new pool with a spa, cinema, wine cellar and numerous electrical, plumbing, security, front gate, and other system updates. Formal and informal spaces radiate from a domed two-story center reception hall creating beautiful flow for today’s modern living. A sunken living room, stately dining room, and birch-paneled family room feature warm fireplaces and antique chandeliers. Roman columns and a circular staircase add a classic touch at the entrance to the glass-walled music conservatory. A walk-in coat closet and guest powder room lie along a private hall off the foyer, which leads to a cozy library clad in birch wood. The luxurious master bedroom suite occupies a private wing of the main level with sitting area, a beautifully appointed bath with spa tub and separate shower, three walk-in closets and a private terrace.
On the opposite wing of the home, the all-white gourmet kitchen was installed in fall 2016 for optimal elegance, practicality and beauty. The granite-topped center island is complemented by top appliances, chandeliers, lighted cabinetry and marble-tiled flooring. The adjoining breakfast salon offers unimpeded views of the private rear gardens and pool. A sunken family room, richly paneled in birch wood and anchored by a gas fireplace, lies just outside the kitchen. French doors open from most rooms on the main level to the stone terrace stretching across the front of the home, or the slate pool deck in the rear — expanding one-level, indoor-outdoor living and entertaining possibilities. Personal conveniences beyond the kitchen include a powder room, custom designed laundry/pantry room and mud closet cubby. A private staircase leads to a separate guest/in-law apartment over the garage with a sitting area, full bath and linen closet. The four-car garage includes custom flooring and storage, as well as access to the pool and pool shower. The upper level foyer is suspended above the main reception hall, and leads to four generously-sized bedrooms, each with hardwood flooring, ceiling chandeliers, walk-in closets and full baths.
A rear staircase enables convenient access to/from the kitchen. The lower level, offers a dream entertainment and family space. Terra cotta-tiled flooring stretches from its welcoming foyer across the expansive open entertaining room beneath 10-foot tray ceilings. French doors open from this space to both the driveway/parking in front, and the gardens and pool in the rear of the home. A 1, 500-bottle, climate-controlled wine cellar and fully equipped wet bar offer refreshments, while a posh newly renovated cinema, billiards/game room with hardwood flooring, and adjoining lounge provide additional recreation.
