Designed to replicate the Governor’s Mansion in Colonial Williamsburg, this magnificent residence has become an “icon” in luxury living.
This is a prime location, in-deed, nestled within the heralded Ballantrae Farm enclave approximately two miles above Chain Bridge and the Washington DC line.
The house itself is beyond description. Its façade is richly detailed in perfectly placed Williamsburg windows, trim, pediments, and intricate brickwork. The towering hip roof passes quaint dormers and balanced chimneys finally reaching the one-of-a-kind cupola that shines supreme over the tree-line as a symbol of success.
Inside, a gracious world unfolds as room after room inter-connect in a regal display. The Ballantrae Room spans over thirty feet and rises two-stories, complete with towering Palladian window walls, twin grand chandeliers, and a promenade gallery spanning above.
The formal living room and dining room are graced with a statesman style finish, while the library is perfect for an author or esquire’s quiet reflection.
The incredible kitchen has been masterfully re-designed to a chef’s standards featuring two “chef-table” islands and customized cabinetry opening to a vista room for casual dining which has been dressed in planked wood and oversized carriage lamps.
Each bedroom meets world-class standards including a huge master suite that fills almost half of the upper level. The fourth floor offers a fifth and sixth bedroom plus a nine hundred square foot studio-media room (that’s larger than some houses). The finished club level offers a club room, lounge, bar, a garage for up to four cars, bonus room, and a cabana bath.
Meticulous gardens, brick walls, and walk-ways surround. Quiet spaces and garden alcoves abound. There are four verandahs and plazas galore, covered patios, wrought-iron torches, a replica of the Williamsburg Magazine creating an outdoor pavilion/bar, and more…much more.
