An Oasis Near The City! Nestled at the very end of a private cul-de-sac sits this elegant home on a 5.6-
acre wooded lot. Just minutes from Washington, DC, it was designed with precision and care. A blush
brick colonial at the zenith of a circular driveway with a three-car garage and in-law suite, the home
offers over 15,000 square feet of living, entertainment, and recreation space on three+ levels.
Reminiscent of a French villa, the home boasts a Romeo and Juliet balcony in a 2-story atrium, a
spacious wrap-around deck designed for entertaining, and lower deck with covered BBQ and eating
area. The southern outdoor space features a large, curved pool with spa overlooking The Historic Pimmit
Run stream and its surrounding woods. All bedrooms and gathering rooms are situated on the southern
side of the home, each with multiple windows to wash the spaces in natural light. The main floor is
home to a formal sunken living room that feeds into a music room with pristine views. A library with
built-in ornamental bookshelves along the walls and over the entry way is next.
The Eastern side of the main floor offers an elegant dining area designed for entertaining, a gourmet
kitchen and adjoining catering kitchen both fully equipped, a mud room with access to the exterior and
the 3-car garage, an inviting family room, and a well-appointed media room. There are four large
bedrooms on the top floor, one of which with a “secret loft” of its own. The Master Suite must be seen
to be believed. The sunken Jacuzzi-tub beneath a bay of windows that overlook the creek and
surrounding forest, his and hers vanities. The Primary Bedroom boasts a cleverly positioned flip-on gas
fireplace. The bedroom, its bath, dressing room and Master Suite entrance, make for a living area that is
a dream come true.
A genuinely expansive space, the lower level is an open plan with a large recreation area outfitted with a
movie projector, 200-inch screen-wall, an open meeting space, an enclosed office, an en-suite
bedroom/bath on one side, and on the east side another full bathroom and dressing area for pool-goers.
Access to the oversized wine room, aptly named The Cave (and not an artificially freezing cellar)
designed for tasting & socializing, and ample bottle storage can be found on this east side of the covered
lower-patio BBQ and entertainment area. The west side of the lower-level space boasts a home gym and
a pièce de resistance, a regulation-sized squash court, with one basket-ball hoop, making for a half-court
of sorts. The Viewer’s Lounge with its own wet-bar, off the slanted floor, allows for guests to socialize
during gameplay. This lower level has yet another wet bar/kitchenette closer to the center of the
building with a dishwasher, full-size refrigerator, and microwave to keep snacks and beverages central.
Access to the exterior can be gained from three lower-level doors. Well-designed and seriously
outfitted, this house is a veritable paradise.
