ON THE MARKET: Passionate design, grand features – Inside NoVA

This post was originally published on this site

Our first featured property of April brings us to an exceptional new home, set on a one-third-acre lot in sought-after Broyhill Langley Estates, where a spectacular showplace by the creative team of Georgetown Homes bids us welcome.

Equally adept at high-tech wizardry and warmhearted elegance, the four-level, 7,800-square-foot “smart home” draws inspiration from the French country design, with exceptional features that range from grand oak hardwoods to sunlit formal rooms.

The key word during our tour may well be “premium” – all the amenities, from the mouldings to the paint, are upscale and upgraded. And with a marvelous traffic flow, the home is perfectly comfortable playing host to a gathering of friends and family.

The property currently is on the market, listed at $2,598,000 by Scott Shawkey of Capital Area Homes of Keller Williams Realty. An open house is slated for Sunday, April 8 from 2 to 4 p.m.

A greeting on the covered porch is our introduction to the features that await inside, and in the cheerful foyer, we can look to our right and spy the formal living room, while to the left is the large dining room featuring a tray ceiling and access to a butler’s pantry.

The kitchen is a standout, perfect for serious chefs but also exuding a charming nature for gatherings of all kinds. Top-name appliances, a center island and a breakfast area that overlooks the covered deck and rear yard are all part of the ensemble.

The family room is a study in elegant informality. Large and featuring a coffered ceiling, it serves up a gas fireplace flanked by windows.

Off the main traffic flow is a home study, a showcase of the home’s versatility, with a bench seat and built-ins.

The first upper level is home to the owner’s retreat, occupying much of the rear and featuring a 10-foot ceiling, sumptuous bath and dual walk-in closets.

Three additional en-suite bedrooms are found here, each with a tray ceiling and walk-in-closet space. There also is a copious laundry area.

At the top of the home is marvelous retreat, featuring a bedroom with alcove, full bath and separate sitting room. There also is access to the attic here.

The amenities continue in the walk-up lower level, starting with a large recreation room with fireplace and wet bar. There also is a game room, exercise room and the property’s sixth bedroom, featuring a full bath and plentiful closet space.

A two-car garage is augmented by a bonus single-car garage.

This is decidedly a home for your “to-do” list if in the market this springtime.
