Situated on a cul-de-sac off rustic Franklin Park Road, this sophisticated new custom residence is the perfect blend of function and elegance.

The main level boasts a chef’s dream Wolf/SubZero kitchen with an oversized quartz slab island, farmhouse sink, and spacious walk-in pantry, a breakfast area with French doors opening to a barbecue center with gas hook-up, a family room with built-ins surrounding a gas fireplace, and a light-filled sunroom/den. Behind the three-car garage is a mud-room with access to a full bath and a large bedroom/playroom.

The second level features a central upstairs foyer opening to an owners’ suite w/enormous designer walk-in-closets — one with a triple window and sitting area — and spa bath with two private toilets and spectacular shower for two, plus three additional ensuite bedrooms with walk-in closets, and a laundry room with natural light.

The walkout basement includes a wet bar, media room, exercise room, large bedroom suite, and a generous storage area.

Steps from the Arlington County line, this property combines the best of town and country amenities. With easy access to Chain Bridge, GW Parkway, and Tysons, the fully-fenced .39 acre cul-de-sac lot features a two-level deck, a large, flat yard, and an extra-wide three-car garage and flat driveway. A gorgeous exterior combines stone, Hardie plank/shingle, cedar shingle, and board & batten. The ball fields, tennis courts, basketball courts, and playgrounds of Jamestown Park are right across Franklin Park Road.  Chesterbrook ES, Longfellow MS, McLean HS.
