Details differentiate this Architects personal residence apart from anything else. Traditional elements are thoughtfully infused in combination with an overall open concept that is quite unique and one of a kind, demonstrating genius in architectural prowess. This one of a kind design includes a two story foyer entrance hall that greets guests in dramatic fashion. The drama continues through two distinctive roman archways leading visitors into the living room equipped with gas fireplace and impressive mantle and also into the dining room with seating for twelve. Twelve foot ceilings throughout main level further lend drama but perhaps most dramatic are the year round views afforded this home of the lush half acre wooded lot. Winter views extending as far as the eye can see into neighboring parkland and Gulf Branch Trail. A well appointed kitchen leaves little to be desired featuring granite surfaces, custom cabinetry, large island and premium stainless steel appliances. Family members are never far away when preparing meals given adjacent breakfast room and the family room featuring trey ceiling, fireplace and a wall flanked by atrium doors exiting outdoors to mahogany deck for tree top alfresco dining. A large oversized two car garage and mud room entrance on this level in addition to half bath and separate study round out our tour of this level. Upstairs, our masters quarter ignites drama using 15 foot ceilings and an architecturally exquisite wall of glass ensconced in silk draperies. Note separateness and privacy afforded the master suite in addition to the exisitance of an almost secrete study tucked away and located behind the sleeping quarters. A perfect nursery for growing families of four, five and six. Two walk-in closets and a sumptuous private master bath inclusive of generous shower & Jacuzzi tub. There are four total bedrooms and three full baths on the upper level in addition to a separate laundry room. The daylight walkout lower level highlights 12 foot ceilings, fifth and sixth bedrooms, full bath, wet bar, exercise area and ample storage. Atrium doors lead outside on to lovely slate patio and adjacent rose garden and trellis. A staircase leads above to mahogany deck and a great vantage point with which to fully appreciate this gorgeous premium half acre lot. Ample room for the addition of an in-ground pool while still maintaining plenty of room or play area for childrens enjoyment, fenced enclosed. Five minutes walk to Potomac River, One light to D.C. & Jamestown / Williamsburg / Yorktown Schools.
