2131 Royal Lodge Drive
This 4 BR, 3.5 BA stately classic brick townhouse is located between McLean and Falls Church, both of which boast strong school systems and are ranked among the nation’s richest counties (according to Forbes, 2011). This luxurious home features professional grade Viking appliances, including a 5 burner range and wine cooler, paved outdoor patio, balcony, and herringbone brick driveway with a 2 car garage.
Impressive soaring ceilings welcome guests in the entryway, warmed by a multi-candle chandelier and ornate ceiling medallion. A coat closet is conveniently located in the foyer, and to the left, a wide staircase ascends to the living area of the home. Light hardwood floors run the length of the great room, and large windows create a bright space that is highlighted with wainscoting, a chair rail, crown molding, and a glassed-in fireplace. The dining area has an additional chandelier.
Passing through the great room, the powder room, with pedestal sink, in located on the right. The inviting family room and kitchen have recessed lighting, and expand into a sunroom, which is perfect for a more casual dining space, play area, or office space. Large windows cast a warm glow, while French doors access a balcony, ideal for a potted herb garden, or general relaxation. Gas grills are allowed on the balcony, which is convenient to the kitchen area.
The spacious kitchen is accented by speckled granite counters, a wine cooler, and professional Viking appliances, including a built in microwave, convection oven, and refrigerator with pull out bottom freezer. Elegant wood cabinetry, with under cabinet lighting, provide ample storage to organize your extensive collection of cookware and utensils. A large kitchen island, with extra storage, pendant lamps and a seating area, creates a friendly space for casual breakfasts or guests.
From the great room, an open stairwell leads to the upper level, where a dramatic double door entry introduces the master suite. Plush carpets, a recessed tray ceiling and crown molding add to the luxurious atmosphere. A master walk-in closet, with bonus closet, leaves little to be desired in this abundance of space. The ensuite master bath features custom tile, a large corner soaking tub, and a separate glassed in shower. A convenient and separate water closet keeps private things private.
The second and third bedrooms are both accented by tall windows with blackout shades, luxurious carpet and ceiling fans. The shared full bath has a tiled tub/shower combo, with a shower light and linen closet.
There is a convenient laundry closet on this floor, with a full size, front loading LG high efficiency washer and dryer. An ecofriendly instant hot water heater is tucked on the right side of the closet. Another hall closet is located opposite the washer dryer for linens or additional storage.
On the lower level, accessed through the foyer, the roomy recreation room has numerous possibilities for play, exercise, or a theater. Recessed lighting and French doors, leading to the lower paved outdoor patio, enhance the space. The recreation room shares a full bathroom with an additional bedroom; ideal for teenagers, live-in help, guests, or anyone needing a little extra space.
A hallway to the garage has a utility room off to the side, which houses the furnace, air conditioner, and whole house humidifier. Across from the utility room is a bonus storage room. The two car garage has finished drywall, extra high ceilings and additional storage space.
