Amidst the stately elegance of McLean’s highly sought-after Woodlea Mill neighborhood, this European Old-World style home is situated on one of the most private and stunning lots in the neighborhood, flanked by approximately five acres of picturesque, HOA-maintained preserved green space. This exceptional home, immaculately maintained by the original owners, features award-winning mature landscaping, including a resort-like heated pool, spa and covered stone patio with outdoor bar, designed and constructed by renowned firm Surrounds Landscape, as well as an elegant paver driveway and 3 car garage.
Abundant natural light coupled with high ceilings and custom architectural details elevate this gracious 5-bedroom, approximately 6657SF residence into a class of its own. An inviting grand foyer with a curved staircase welcomes guests into a formal living room with a beautiful marble surround fireplace imported from France, a spacious formal dining room, and an intimate, cherry paneled library with built-in shelving.
The lovely French country-inspired kitchen opens to the rear deck with a built-in grill and provides wonderful views of the private grounds. The kitchen’s breakfast area overlooks the adjacent two-story great room, featuring beautiful custom trim around the floor to ceiling windows, a handsome stone fireplace with antique mantel, additional deck access, and a lovely back staircase. A formal powder room, large laundry and mudroom, and access to the 3-car garage with custom commercial-grade Gladiator Garage flooring tiles and organizational system.
Dual staircases access the upper floor, and the primary suite is its own retreat with a soaring tray ceiling, sumptuous master bath (updated in 2015) and thoughtfully designed, expansive walk-in closet with two full wall mirrors and natural light. Secondary bedrooms all offer either en-suite or a jack-and jill bath.
The walk-out lower-level features additional views of the stunning and well-manicured grounds, and includes a 700-bottle wine cellar, game room and large bar. The roof, AC units, and hot water heater have all been replaced between 2014-2018.
The exterior provides a restful setting on .62 acres with 32’ pool with automatic cover, heated spa, covered stone patio with bar, sink and refrigerator, fountain, 20-zone irrigation and professional landscaping.
The prominent McLean neighborhood of Woodlea Mill is ideally located minutes from the urban hub of Tysons Corner, 20 minutes to Dulles Airport, with proximity to excellent dining and hiking trails. Amid the lush trees and stately landscape, this elegant residence provides a wonderful and classic retreat rarely found in such an accessible location.
