Perfectly situated in prestigious McLean, Virginia just minutes to Washington, DC, this timeless estate residence reflects a modern interpretation of classical architecture with unwavering attention to detail. The residence reflects elements of design inspired by the owner's own European background and captures features and elements generally reserved for larger custom estates. This is immediately evident upon entering the discrete driveway and parking court which is finished with Italian granite pavers. The quality of the timeless exterior is further evident in the use of the highest grade of concrete stucco, stone, slate roof, and Western Windsor Windows. Stepping inside the custom double entry doors, guests are welcomed into an expansive reception hall. On either side of the entry, a comfortable study and a dining room flank the entry which then continues to the open concept kitchen, breakfast room and living room. Drenched in natural sunlight and with views to the stunning garden, the chef’s kitchen includes every possible amenity including custom European style cabinetry, professional appliances, an oversized refrigerator/freezer, gourmet gas range, steam oven, convection oven, warming drawer, and a wine cooler. The expansive space is further enveloped in a dramatic wall of glass which opens to the heated lap pool and richly planted garden beyond. An elegant terrace leads to a three seasons garden room with a fireplace overlooking the pool. Upstairs, a custom staircase introduces a large media room, the primary bedroom suite, and three additional bedrooms, two with en-suite baths. The primary suite is a quiet oasis overlooking the pool and gardens below. The primary bath is finished in marble and timeless European fixtures, including a sumptuous soaking tub, steam shower and heated floors. The elegant dressing room is finished with European cabinets and includes a separate washer/dryer. The generous lower level boasts a home gym, a recreation room, and a bonus room which is perfect for a future home theater and wet bar. An elevator services all three levels of the residence, and an oversized, three car garage provides ample parking, extra storage space, and expansion possibilities for extra living space upstairs. Just 14 minutes to Washington, DC and less than 5 minutes to downtown McLean, this timeless estate residence is ideally located in the region's most prestigious location. This gracious home is the perfect blend of sophisticated country living within easy reach of the area's urban offerings. Rarely does a residence of this quality, design and location become available at this price point, making this one of the attractive current offerings in the Washington region.
