Luxury and location come together perfectly within the gated walls of this masterfully designed French Provincial estate. The architecture and grounds are inspired by celebrated French Chateaus but this nearly acre and a half private compound lives more like a brand new home with advanced home automation, security, 5 zone climate control, entertainment system, home theater and Cat5 wiring. The approach is sensational as you pass through custom gates along a winding tree lined drive. The formal gardens by landscape architect Charles Owen are meticulously maintained just like the interiors of the more than 13,000 square foot residence on three levels. Glass and iron front doors open to a stunning double height foyer with a gracefully curved staircase. Ceiling heights soar to 10 feet throughout the home and feature coffered and classic tray design. The 2008 construction meets the highest global standards featuring 6 bedroom suites including a palatial owner’s retreat, 9 full and 2 half bathrooms, 7 gas fireplaces, exotic granite countertops, Wolf, ASKO and Miele kitchen, three level mahogany paneled elevator, two custom wet bars, home theater with custom upholstered stadium seating and 4K projector, heated floors, cedar closets, sprawling spa with gym, massage room and sauna plus a separate catering kitchen. The rear grounds are awe inspiring highlighted by a saltwater pool with waterfall and jacuzzi, pool pavilion that includes a full kitchen, bar, entertaining areas, fireplace, multiple televisions, as well as indoor and outdoor showers. The 5 tiered grounds offer an exceptional level of privacy while embracing an English country romance with imported cast stone and bronze fountains. The property is surrounded by a 6 foot powder coated iron fence with custom electronic entrance gate including surveillance. This required a special permit from the County and includes a transferable warranty for the new home owners. A list of some of the home’s most significant and unique interior and exterior features can be found in the documents section. This is truly a one of a kind sanctuary offering an unparalleled lifestyle of leisure and elegance with the convenience of its McLean address.
