ON THE MARKET: Exceptional style, a focus on tranquility – Inside NoVA

This post was originally published on this site

With our very unusual winter in the rear-view mirror, the focus now shifts both to spring itself, and to the blooming local real-estate market, where tight inventory has made for a competitive arena.

Our featured property is a home that surely stands out from the crowd. Set on a quiet cul-de-sac backing to Zachary Taylor Nature Area, the home proffers serenity and grace while showcasing more than 7,000 square feet of interior living space across four levels.

Attention to detail is evident throughout this custom 2014 home, from Japanese leather wallpaper to a sumptuous, two-sided indoor/outdoor gas fireplace surrounded by floor-to-ceiling Calcutta Gold marble.

The result is a home that provides a fitting backdrop for upscale daily living, and also is perfectly at home entertaining throughout the year.

The property currently is on the market, listed at $2,499,000 by Ruth Boyer O’Dea and Sheri Grant of Boyer O’Dea & Grant, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty.

Tall ceilings and a four-zone HVAC system provide style and comfort as we embark on our tour, which starts at the custom entry door (carved from a fallen oak tree on the property).

While there simply are too many features to list, we will pick out some of our highlights:

• The kitchen is a showplace, designed for the serious chef and those who enjoy entertaining. Quartzite counters, a center island and top-notch appliances are highlights.

• The family room features the aforementioned gas fireplace that is shared with the adjacent screened-in porch (which offers four large skylights and two ceiling fans). Truly an upscale, urban-village vibe is found here.

• The master retreat offers plentiful bedroom space, a glorious master bath and custom walk-in closet with center island and dual matching chandeliers.

• The walk-out lower level offers, among other features, a recreation room, additional bedroom (the home’s seventh), media room and walk-out access to the lovely flagstone patio.

Extra touches abound throughout, from the walk-in toy closet on the lower level to the gas-line hookup for an outdoor grill. There also is a whole-house backup generator.

Visually arresting, the home makes an architectural statement while also serving as a wonderful backdrop for daily living.
