This is your chance to own a dramatic piece of memorable Virginia architecture. This stunning Georgian mansion, with a circular drive and grand columns, perched on a hilltop, is a grand dame of North Arlington. Every inch of this sweeping 10 bedroom/9.4 bath home was personally overseen by an esteemed custom-builder for his own family's enjoyment. Sparing nothing, this jewel unfolds like a diamond necklace with blueprints for heavy detailed moulding, cornices, sweeping handrails, decorated fireplace mantels, handlaid hardwood floors and french doors. The fantastic floorplan features a glorious entry foyer with stunning curved staircase and chandelier, presenting the exquisite formal living room and dining room fitted with chandeliers, wall sconces and heavy three-tier cornice moulding and a deep butler's pantry fit for the entertaining that this home demands. Then, sink your teeth further into the abundance with two kitchens, a breakfast morning room, an afternoon solarium, home office or library, plus a terracotta tiled great room and fireplace, all on the first floor. The second floor offers a primary bedroom with a huge private outdoor balcony, buttressed by the intended children's suite of two bedrooms and Jack-and-Jill bath that also opens onto a private small balcony. Heavy dresser built-ins align the hallway, leading to two additional bedrooms and baths. Up another flight, be stunned by an enormous ballroom with vaulted ceiling, chandeliers and fireplace that recall the days of a gentleman's billiards room, dance hall, or concerto evenings. Two additional bedrooms on this floor. The lowest level is completed by a heavy oak library room, an indoor sauna room, two additional bedrooms, a small kitchenette. The whole house is made accessible by an elevator. This premium lot holds an outdoor in-ground pool in its own outbuilding. Note, this property also conveys a subdivided .25 acre lot! Incredible central Arlington location just uphill from Marymount University and streets over from Glebe Road and Military Road.
