Description

Landscaped solitude meets thoughtful design in this Franklin Park haven. Sited on a 1.11 acre lot adjacent to parkland and reminiscent of a country lane with ample parking, this elegant, modern interpretation of an English country house encompasses approximately 8,339 SF+/- of living space, including 6 bedrooms, 5 full and 2 half bathrooms. A 2019 designer kitchen with a bifolding glass wall that opens up to an incredible terrace with substantial hardscaping and landscaping that includes terraced cocktail pools with waterfalls, a bar with built-in grill, shade sails covering an outdoor lounge are, a fire pit, a bucolic, flat lower yard and private play area to complete this idyllic property. The home+GGs rooms are graciously sized inviting form and function that simultaneously caters to large entertaining and comfortable cozy family living. Exquisite views pour in throughout the first level and are beautifully framed by 10+GG ceilings, large windows, and the bifolding glass wall as well as multiple French doors. Just inside the front door, a mosaic tiled entry hall with generous walk-in coat closet connects the home+GGs main living areas. The thoughtful layout of the rear courtyard encourages indoor/outdoor entertaining both from the expansive and bright family room with built-ins to the designer kitchen with bifolding glass wall (including a full-wall screen) that opens to the sweeping bluestone terrace with multiple lounges and outdoor seating areas. In the kitchen, modern cabinetry presides with designer tile and lighting selections, gourmet appliances including a new built-in espresso machine, and a substantial quartz island with waterfall edge and pendant lighting. Adjacent to a 2nd island is an intimate breakfast area offset by the central dual-sided masonry wood-burning fireplace. The breakfast room and kitchen windows offer views of both sides of the home+GGs bucolic grounds. The kitchen+GGs front French doors open to an expansive, fully fenced kitchen-garden with fruit and vegetable patches+GGtruly a cultivator+GGs dream. The formal salon with a large bar, gracious formal dining room, living room and powder room complete the first level. Tasteful accents like gently dormered windows bring charm to the home+GGs upper level, where a serene primary bedroom suite+GGcomplete with large private dressing area, sitting area with custom closet built-ins that opens to primary bath with rustic tumbled stone tile and countertops+GGis the perfect place to unwind. Four bedrooms, two with renovated ensuite baths and two with individual toilets and sinks but share a bath all centrally meet. A chic laundry room with new washer and dryer and expansive hall linen closet complete the generous upper foyer. The loft level offers a sophisticated, and extremely private library with a stunning ceiling treatment, custom built-ins and designer finishes. Lastly, there is a sixth bedroom and full bath, and a bonus room leading to more unfinished storage space. The lower level adds 1,774 SF+/- of extra living space, accommodating garage access large mudroom, a mirrored home gym, incredible custom stone temperature controlled wine cellar and tasting room with slate floors, walls and tiled barrel-pointed ceiling and custom wine racking and displays. An ample recreation room and powder room round out the space. The lower garage driveway includes a lit basketball hoop and garden shed. Landscape lighting and irrigation have been recently installed, and a whole-house generator is included. Sited beautifully in perhaps the most coveted spot in all of Franklin Park, a community known for its special combination of mature trees, charming rolling hills, and extremely convienent location which offers close proximity to the best that McLean and North Arlington have to offer, and is also ideally situated just minutes to the George Washington Parkway, 1-66, Tyson+GGs Corner, and the Capitol Beltway.
