Welcome to this truly spectacular 12,000 square foot home and 3.8 acre woodland only 4 miles from both McLean town and Tysons Corner. Down a private road off Old Dominion, this double-winged Jeffersonian colonial is majestically sited at the property’s crest, approached via a long, sweeping driveway surrounded by massive oaks and other hardwoods, native hollies, dogwoods, and laurel, and extensive specimen plantings and hardscapes by Charles Owens’ Fine Landscapes, leading to a paver circle and motor court. This fully-custom home reflects the dedication and passion of the owners to recreate the timeless elegance and enduring quality of estates from a less hurried time. The home was specifically over-engineered for structural integrity more typical of commercial construction, and was scrupulously finished with the finest materials and methods to showcase the extraordinary talents of carefully-selected master craftsmen and tradesmen. The final results of their three-year planning and collaboration will exceed your expectations. All rooms are spacious with expanses of glass offering glorious views and natural lighting. The flowing floorplan anticipates virtually every possible family and entertaining need: formal parlor and dining rooms from an elegant entry foyer, each with wood-burning & gas fireplaces; an octagonal great room with 14’ window walls, coffered ceiling, stone fireplace, and access to a wrap-around Ipe deck; enormous chef’s kitchen open to a family room with deck & porch access; main level master suite (three additional bedroom suites up plus a game room/study); formal library with fireplace, wet bar & balcony bookcases; another main level bedroom suite with porch & patio access; a private, second-level multi-room studio/office/apartment with sun deck; a walk-out lower level with an octagonal party room with stone fireplace, another multi-room apartment, along with recreation, media, wine, exercise, hobby, and storage rooms. But most striking are the no expense-spared exterior & interior features: historic, over-sized hand-made brick with unique curved & angle custom shapes & masons’ detailing; Vermont black random-width rough-cut slate roof; all copper flashings, gutters, downspouts & snow guards; 100+ WeatherShield true divided-light high-efficiency windows & French doors; Fypon crown, custom palladian & pilaster detailing and custom raised-panel entry & garage doors. For the interior: 5000+ square feet of Brazilian cherry floors, laid with multipiece species hardwood borders and hand-made medallions/detailing; exquisite and elaborate multipiece millwork throughout - crown moldings every room, true raised-panel wainscoting entire first floor, historic custom mantels; WoodHarbor full-custom solid cherry kitchen cabinetry and Decora semi-custom cabinetry elsewhere; Italian & Turkish marble all baths; Kohler designer fixtures, Jacuzzi whirlpool tubs, Kohler steam shower/lounger. There are five highly-efficient HVAC systems, two oversized HWHs, and a 25KW Caterpillar generator; 600 amp service in use, 200 amp in reserve, and another 200 amp available. These original owners have obviously meticulously maintained their labor of love ever since. This is an extraordinary opportunity to purchase a phenomenally well-designed and well-built home at a price substantially below its replacement cost (independent of the land value = $2 million+). As importantly, this home is stunning and move-in ready while the property, located in a most private setting and a most convenient area, offers endless opportunities for future expansion (pool, tennis, guesthouse, etc.). If you are considering this price range, this is a must-see.
