Fairfax home review, 2/8/18

Facts for Buyers: Address: 7204 Farm Meadow Court, McLean (22101). Listed at: $1,899,999 by Jenny McClintock, Keller Williams Realty (703) 731-2412. Schools: Kent Gardens Elementary, Longfellow Middle, McLean High School.

Set in the always-in-fashion Evans Farm community of McLean, our featured property offers the opportunity to own a sumptuous colonial with more than 7,000 square feet of living space spread over four well-conceived levels.

While large, the home retains a warm-hearted appeal, making it perfect for entertaining and also for the simpler joys of daily living. And the location is tough to beat – close to everything but set back in a world of rarified elegance among properties of like provenance.

The home currently is on the market, listed at $1,899,999 by Jenny McClintock of Huckaby Briscoe Conroy Group of Keller Williams Realty.

With a curb appeal that would delight our Founding Fathers – classic in every regard – the home opens up to showcase its surprises to those of us lucky enough to step inside and enjoy the surroundings.

Deceptively deep, the home’s main-level footprint provides both formal spaces and those designed for family time. To our right off the columned entry and foyer is the living room, with an ample dining room behind it and the chef’s-caliber kitchen occupying a strategic location midway back.

An adjacent breakfast room offers walk-out access to the terrace, while a sitting room, with stone-faced gas corner fireplace, takes us all the way to the back of the home.

But wait . . . there’s more! A large family room, with another corner fireplace, is a centerpiece of the main floor. And an office/library is tucked away, a perfect respite.

Whether taking the elevator or the creative staircase, soon we’re up on the second level, where the master suite is a study in elegant design. Offering a bedding area with fireplace, there also is a sitting room, dual dressing rooms and a sumptuous bath with glass-enclosed shower and separate Jacuzzi tub.

Three additional bedrooms are found on this level, with an additional bedroom, full bath and loft area on the second upper level.

Downstairs, the amenities keep on coming, with a large recreation room, kitchenette area (with bar seating) and a full bath. There also is copious storage space and access to the two-car garage.

Evans Farm, an enclave of 143 homes, offers exclusive amenities to homeowners and a friendly atmosphere, making it a perfect spot for all ages. Surrounded by verdant parkland, it’s a feast for the senses all throughout the year.
