Located in Colony Hill, a private enclave of homes off of highly desired Foxhall Road, this 6 year old, custom-built home features 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths and 6045 of finished square footage across three levels. Designed by award- winning architect George Myers and built by acclaimed Sandy Spring Builders, the home is both supremely elegant and functional.
A whitewashed brick facade and columned front porch with shuttered French doors is topped by a decorative Chippendale-style balustrade. The generously-scaled entry foyer opens to the dining room and Library/Living Room through arched case openings. The Library/Living Room is complete with back-lit bookcases and gas fireplace and can be sealed off with glass-paned pocket doors.
Erica Burns was responsible for the interior design, combining more formal front rooms enhanced with Old World brass-and-gold accents with contemporary light fixtures and white oak flooring, creating a very current and very chic aesthetic throughout. The open-plan kitchen with center island connects to an eat-in dining space as well as to the great room with coffered ceiling and fireplace. Bi-fold patio doors between the great room and back terrace can be fully opened, allowing for integrated indoor/outdoor entertaining
Upstairs a large, garden-facing owner's suite enjoys extensive built-ins and tray ceiling detail. The truly spa-like marble bath enjoys glass steam shower with rain shower head, separate tub and dual vanities. His and her dressing spaces with built in custom cabinetry complete the luxurious owner's suite. A morning coffee bar with undercounter refrigerator, and two secondary bedrooms with en suite baths complete the upper level.
The lower level enjoys equally high ceilings and finish detail. A large, secondary recreation space is flooded with natural light and walks out to the rear garden through French doors. The exercise space is also on grade and generously-scaled. The fourth bedroom with bath and laundry room complete the lower level. The oversized two car garage, accessed via mudroom with storage make for easy daily living. Outdoors a private terrace with automatic awning and built in gas grill overlooks mature plantings of the rear garden.
With access to the trails of the C&O and Glover Archbold Park, and to Georgetown, this sophisticated, elegant home is the ultimate in city living.
