6754 Darrells Grant Place

This classy end unit townhouse is for those who appreciate luxury and elegance. 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 spacious 4 BR 3.5 BA home offers a variety of thoughtful and premium amenities. At 3,220 square feet, this very private home has a fully fenced side yard and a stone wall in the back, with a wooded view from the balcony.

The grand entryway welcomes your guests with a soaring ceiling; a wide staircase ascends to the living area of the home. The main level features hardwood floors throughout. An interior wall cut-out, overlooking the entryway, creates an open feeling in the formal dining room. A recessed window provides space for a buffet or credenza storage. The room is tastefully ornate, with wainscoting, a chair rail, multi-layered crown molding and a detailed chandelier medallion. Just outside the dining room is an open stairwell to the upper level.

A powder room is conveniently located next to the stairs, along with a coat closet for extra storage.

The formal front sitting room is also accented by an interior wall cut-out, framed in paneling, that overlooks the grand entryway. Three tall storefront windows and recessed lighting create a bright and cheerful space. The gas fireplace, with digital controls, is flanked by symmetrical built in bookshelves and cabinets. The fireplace mantel and paneling, in addition to the framed open entry, add a touch of sophistication.

The kitchen is a chef’s dream, with endless granite counters and stainless steel Viking appliances, including a built in microwave and convection oven. A sophisticated gray zig zag tiled backsplash runs the length of the counters. The double windows above the corner sink bathe the room in natural light. A five burner restaurant range, stainless steel refrigerator with bottom pull out freezer, and large kitchen island with additional storage complete the package. A multitude of classic white paneled cabinets and drawers allow organization of even the most extensive collection of cookware and utensils.

Just past the kitchen, a wall of windows brightens a casual combination family room and sun room - perfect for a casual TV room or breakfast area. French doors lead to the outdoor deck, where a gas grill is allowed. Brick trim, exterior lighting and outlets lend themselves to outdoor dining and relaxing possibilities.

 

An sensible master bedroom is located to the right of the stairs, on the upper level. Three large windows, with plantation shutters, bathe the room in light. Doric columns frame the recessed opposite wall. A tray ceiling and crown molding create a stately atmosphere. Through the en suite bathroom is the walk in closet, large enough to be used as a dressing room. The bathroom features a deep soaking tub, flanked by his and hers vanities, with granite counters. A glassed shower and completely separate toilet room add to the luxury touches.

A den at the top of the stairs is simple and sunny. This room could be used as a bedroom with the addition of an armoire; it is also ideal as an office, play room, or library. The second and third bedrooms are both accented by tall windows with custom plantation shutters, luxurious carpet and ceiling fans. 

There is a convenient laundry room on this floor, with a utility sink. The full bath is appointed with a double sink vanity, premium dark wood cabinetry, and diagonal tiles. An in room linen closet provides convenient storage.

At over 360 square feet, the roomy and versatile recreation room has numerous possibilities. Luxurious carpets, recessed lighting and French doors, leading to the outdoor patio, enhance the space. An entire wall of built-ins provide a space for collections, a TV, toys, or any other item that needs organization. The patio shows neat landscaping against slate paving and a gorgeous rustic stone wall. The covered area makes a relaxing outdoor living room. Lighting and pavers wrap around to the front yard.

Off to one side of the recreation room is a utility room for extra storage, and off the opposite wall, an additional bedroom, guest bedroom, or home office, with a window overlooking the backyard area.

A full bath on this floor shows the same attention to quality and detail as the rest of the home, with premium wood cabinetry and a shower/tub combo. Opposite the full bath is a full size closet, ideal for multiple uses. The hallway on this level accesses the two car garage, with an additional storage closet.

This community has many amenities including tasteful gathering spaces made for summer relaxation, with rocking chairs and swinging benches, fountains, and art sculptures. Expansive grassy areas and quaint wooden benches encourage you to enjoy the outdoors. Falls Church Metro is just over a mile away.
