Our search for the best in local real estate this week takes us to Old Dominion Gardens in McLean, where an exceptional, futuristic farmhouse by Morbill Associates awaits our inspection.
Featuring four levels with more than 8,500 square feet of interior space, the home showcases design elements that hark back to an earlier time. But the combination of wonderful traffic flow and high-end accoutrements ensure fully 21-century amenities in a home that is perfect for daily life and for entertaining in style.
The property, set on a level lot on a quiet street, currently is on the market, listed at $2,840,000 by Maureen Sloan of McEnearney Associates.
The curb appeal hints at what awaits inside, as it is both traditional and stylishly contemporary in perfect harmony. And after a welcome on the front porch, we are whisked inside to begin our tour.
White-oak flooring and oversized casement windows on the main level provide a sense of grace, light and elegance as we move from room to room.
The floorplan is versatile and the amenities mesmerizing, with the dining room featuring custom paneling and ceiling treatment; the study offering an oak-beamed ceiling and marvelous vistas; the family room serving up a stone-surround fireplace, floating shelves and French doors to the patio; and the kitchen celebrating flexibility with an oversized island, oak ceiling beams, top-quality appliances and more.
The second level is home to, first off, a cozy family lounge that provides a linear fireplace. And the highlight of this level is the glorious master retreat, with tray ceiling, corner fireplace and lots of windows, plus two large walk-in closets with custom systems and a sumptuous master bath.
Three additional en-suite bedrooms are found here, as well.
A huge loft/studio area, bathed in sunlight, is the centerpiece of the second upper level, along with a large bedroom and full bath. You’ll have glorious treetop views from here.
The lower level features a 40-foot-long recreation room with barn doors, cedar beams, stained shelves and French doors leading to the yard. There also is a 12-foot bar, media room, exercise room, bedroom, bonus room and rough-in should you opt for an elevator.
It’s a glorious package, ready for you to call it your own.
