A 7,118 square foot, 6 bedroom, 6.5 bathroom, 3 Car Tandem Garage custom home designed to fit on this gorgeous 17,898 square foot 146 foot wide lot in the Northeast section of the Town of Vienna! With Beulah Road and Glyndon Parks just across the street and only a few minute walk to Church Street and Maple Ave, this home’s ideal location is only part of it’s allure. Walking down the quiet street of mostly newly constructed homes, all feeding to the sought after Madison school pyramid of Wolftrap Elementary and Kilmer Middle School. The craftsman style inspired home features a unique floor plan artfully designed with a transitional style and flair.
With 10’ ceilings, the 2,556 square foot open floor plan on the main floor is spacious yet carefully thought out to flow efficiently from one space to the other. The beautiful custom extra wide, eight-foot-tall wood front entry door is artistically flanked by windows and opens to cozy foyer. A “study” with glass pocket doors offers a flexible space adjacent to the Foyer that can be used for formal entertaining, as a music room, or as a study or office. The Mudroom creatively adjoins the Foyer as well in a way that provides separation yet efficient flow between the two areas. Entering the mudroom from he 3 Car Tandem Garage, a set of custom built corner cubbies, a wash basin (for everything from pet to boot washing), an Entry Pantry (providing an immediate drop off location and to store those extra items you may not need at once), and a rear stair to the second floor are all placed carefully for your use. Turning the corner is a coat closet, a built-in bench for additional coat hooks for guests and a Powder Room. Walk through the arched opening and you are in the Foyer.
As you continue, a 4-foot-wide staircase to the left leads to the lower level and to a landing with a large picture window, built-in reading bench and bookcases and on to the Second Floor Gallery. Just beyond the stairs is a large dining room served by a true (and hidden by the barn door) Butlers Wet Bar Pantry with an under counter beverage center and pantry organization system. On the other side is a pocket door that leads to the spacious Kitchen highlighted by an 8’ granite island, transom cabinetry, a 48” Wolfe Range, a 48” Sub-Zero refrigerator and built-in breakfast nook seating. Off the Kitchen is a custom Screened in Porch and additional uncovered Deck area perfect for the family or entertaining. The wide open plan connects from the Kitchen to an expansive Great Room with a coffered wood beam ceiling and a fireplace flanked by built-in cabinetry. And tucked away in the front corner of the home is a separate Bedroom with a Private Bathroom, entrance, and front patio. The second floor is 2,696 square feet of 9’ ceilings, spacious bedrooms each with their own private bath with walk-in closets, a generous laundry room, a study nook and large desk, a playroom, and a owners’ suite retreat. Walking along the Halls and Gallery (either from the Main or Rear Stair) to the Owners Suite, you are first greeted by a vestibule with a coffee wet bar with beverage center, perfect for those late night drinks and snacks (for you or perhaps at the request of the kids) or making a quick cup of coffee on your way out in the morning, all without disturbing the lucky person who did not have to getup yet. The double doors open up to the Owners Bedroom with lots of windows and easy access to either the bathroom or spacious closet with a custom designed closet organization system. You can enter the spa like bathroom from either the closet or the bedroom where you can spend your time in the heated bubble massage with chromo therapy tub tucked in a relaxing alcove with columns or enjoy a invigorating and therapeutic shower complete with water spray tiles and a rain shower head. And if you want to continue to relax or maybe just get a way for a little bit, walk out to the covered coffee deck and enjoy some peace and quiet.
The 1,866 square foot of finished space in the lower level will exceed any recreational or entertaining needs and highlight almost 9’ high ceilings, a spacious recreation area with a fireplace, dedicated exercise and home theater media rooms, a wet bar, a hidden wine room, and bedroom with a full bath. The wet bar, complete with a beverage center and microwave creatively adjoins the home theater room for easy access while a hidden door bookcase opens up to a wine cellar, sure to be a conversation piece at any gathering. The exercise room has been designed with an open feel to make those workouts a little more enjoyable while the recreation room with coffered ceiling opens out to an oversized 20-foot-wide walk-up areaway to give an even more open feel to the well lit room. High end and well-appointed finishes top off this fabulous, must-see home.
