Built in synergy with the surrounding landscape, this spacious 3 level, 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home was intentionally designed to provide harmonious open space living. This dynamically modern home features several versatile spaces for media, office, recreation, and an enormous interior storage room - larger than the insulated two car garage. Rest assured knowing that despite this sweeping expanse of space, this architectural award winning home is energy star certified, with smart, wireless climate control, and was built using responsible environmental practices.

The soaring entryway leads your eye, from both outside and inside, to the visually striking staircase. The entire outer wall of the staircase is encased in glass, making a stunning statement, especially at night, with the warm glow of light. Vertical parallel wooden beams, running from the interior floor to ceiling, combine form and function to serve as a backdrop to the home’s living areas, as well as safety on the stairwell.

Upon entering the home, the kitchen is up a few stairs and to the left, sectioned off from the living area with partial walls that contain pass-through windows. This enlightened feature defines the breadth of the room, while still maintaining the sense of openness. Though strictly modern, with stainless steel appliances and a stainless steel backsplash, the kitchen radiates warmth with its deep wood cabinetry and saucer pendant light. Euro handles on the cabinets and the smooth white countertops add to the sleek feel. A metal roll up countertop cabinet provides an easily accessible hide-away for large appliances. Cooking enthusiasts will appreciate the professional Viking 5 burner range and hood, the Subzero fridge and freezer, the built-in microwave and oven, and the separate prep counter with extra sink. An island with additional storage is almost superfluous, but provides an intimate space for casual meals.

In the living space next to the kitchen, an avant-garde fireplace delineates the dining area from the living area. Light wood floors run the length of the room, towards floor-to-ceiling windows at the end of the living room, creating an extra airy and bright space. Rose gold pendant lights accentuate the dining room and provide soft lighting. No less than three sets of French doors line the wall, encouraging interaction with the private garden terrace, where raised beds await your personal whims, be it flowers, vegetables, or both. Natural landscaping provides privacy from the neighbors, and the sunny expanse of green grass is ideal for children, pets, or relaxation.

On the other side of the kitchen, a stairwell and exterior door lead to the side yard and garden terrace. Continuing past the stairwell and up a few steps, is an additional living level with built in shelving, large windows, recessed lighting, and a powder room. Overlooking the stairwell and kitchen, there is still a continuity and connection of space. With a multitude of uses and possibilities, this bonus room also spotlights a comfortable and cozy reading alcove, with a padded built in bench, shelves, and its own lighting.

On the upper level is a conveniently located laundry room, with an organizational storage system and plenty of space for cleaning products, linens, and more. To the right, the master bedroom suite takes up the entire back half of the house, while to the left, the other three bedrooms overlook the front yard and the garden terrace.

The master suite has been carefully designed to provide maximum storage space and ideal use of light. To the left, closets line the length of the wall, with sliding metal and frosted glass doors, that keep with the modern aesthetic. Individual lights for each closet help you organize your wardrobe. The entire outdoor landscape may be viewed from the comfort of your bed, while custom blackout shades allow you to sleep in as you wish. 

The very progressive and open bathroom concept has both a soaking tub and extra large shower, that features two shower heads, each with their own levers to adjust to your personal preferences. A double vanity with flat front dark wood cabinets, and private water closet, euro handles, stainless steel fixtures and a skylight complete this luxurious and exceptional space.

The master bedroom connects, in the far corner, to a pass-through bedroom, which on its opposite wall, connects to the common hallway. Due to this design, this is a wonderful room for a nursery, office, or even a private gallery. With a closet and recessed directional LED art lights, there are many possibilities for this unique space.

At the front of the home, the other two bedrooms mirror each other, with windows on two walls, each with custom blackout shades. In between the bedrooms, a full bathroom, with bright white tile and a pedestal sink, is accessed through the hallway.

Next to the original entryway is a door accessing the garage, and stairs that lead down to a large recreation room. With a connected full bathroom, this room has versatility as a game room, fitness center, play area, or a number of other options. The mechanical room and a full interior storage room (larger than the double garage) are also accessed off the recreation room. With this breadth of storage, there is no lack of space for your toys and gear.

West Falls Church Metro is one mile away.
