Nestled at the end of a private, gated lane, 9185 Old Dominion Drive is perfectly located on a premier
lot with two-and-a-half acres of gardens and woodlands. At times you can hear the soothing sounds of Great Falls and the Potomac River.. Designed by renowned restoration architect Carroll C. Curtice, the residence
exudes old-world charm with a timeless brick exterior and elegant, arched windows. With more than
6,250 sq ft of space, the floor plan features generously sized rooms for entertainment, trimmed
with exquisite custom mouldings. The home is within walking distance of Great Falls Park and is
easily accessible to the 495 Beltway, as well as to the villages of McLean and Great Falls.

The circular drive with outdoor parking (ten-plus cars) guides homeowners and guests into the two-story,
marble foyer with dramatic curved stairs and a crystal chandelier. A large Palladian window
illuminates the foyer. Grand entertaining is possible with an extensive living room featuring a
beautifully detailed fireplace with marble surround and intricately designed crown moulding and
architraves. Glass doors lead out to the Vermont-slate rear terraces. With gorgeous views of the rear
gardens, the terrace boasts three sets of glass doors leading into the living, dining and family rooms.

Spacious enough for a large dinner party, the dining room features wainscoting, a crystal chandelier and wall sconces, detailed crown moulding and architraves. The sophisticated kitchen provides abundant counter and storage space, as well as a large island and spacious breakfast area overlooking the woodlands and gardens. The kitchen is outfitted with custom cherry cabinetry, built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator, Jenn-Air cooktop/grill and double wall oven. A pass-through opens the kitchen to the rear family room. Featuring vaulted ceilings, the family room looks out on the gardens with two walls of glass on both sides. A floor-to-ceiling Rappahannock handpicked fieldstone fireplace and mantel creates a striking focal point. Adjacent to the main entrance sits a spacious office or fourth bedroom with custom built-ins and large windows. The main-level full bathroom provides everyday convenience.

Ascend the custom stairs to the upper-level gallery, where gleaming wood floors and intricate crown
moulding continue throughout the second level. Beautifully designed, the opulent primary suite
provides the perfect private retreat from daily life with generously sized rooms and custom features.
A gas fireplace with detailed mantel creates an elegant focal point. The primary bath features marble
flooring, a soaking tub, walk-in shower and three closets. The walk-in shower features two entries,
with one leading to an additional bathroom, including linen- and large walk-in closets. Two additional
closets are found in the primary bedroom. Across the gallery, second and third bedrooms feature
spacious rooms, double closets and large windows overlooking the gardens. A second full bath is
accessible from the hall and the third bedroom.

The finished lower level features a spacious family room, a fourth full bathroom and a finished
laundry room with a double utility sink. The lower level opens to the over-sized two-car garage with
plentiful storage. An additional large bonus room is accessible from the garage and the outside. The
grounds have been beautifully developed, with extensive gardens including a spring daffodil
extravaganza, glorious azaleas, a tennis court, marble fountain and a screened-in gazebo.
