Long & Foster® Real Estate, Inc., the largest independent residential real estate company in the United States and a leader in the sale of luxury properties, today announced it has listed, as part of its extensive number of current listings, a five-bedroom, five-and-one-half-bath Colonial-style home in the Lansdowne on the Potomac community of Leesburg, Va. Located at 18680 Riverlook Court, the property is listed by Meg Olympia, a sales associate with Long & Foster’s Alexandria/Kingstowne office in Alexandria, Va., and is being offered for $2.9 million.

“This home features more than 11,000 square feet of finely crafted and glorious finished living space and details that provide a grand and special feeling of elegance,” said Olympia. “From the Brazilian blue slate front porch and Mahogany door to the surrounding lush landscape, this light-filled and secluded oasis offers stunning views and offers the perfect nature lover’s retreat.”

The home’s main-level open floor plan is accentuated by designer lighting, extensive crown molding and travertine/wood flooring throughout. The exquisite library has handsome custom built-in bookcases and opens to a second larger study area with a tray ceiling. There are also formal living and dining rooms, a large sunroom with a wall of windows that opens to a gourmet kitchen with cherry cabinets, dovetail drawers, granite counters and top-of-the-line appliances. Additional amenities include a large walk-in pantry, a wine refrigerator and a mud room.

Other main-level living spaces include a private study with French doors that is located off the grand two-story foyer, a spacious family room with a wet bar and a wood burning fireplace that is accented by a stone fa├žade and a mantel. The gracious room also has a coffered ceiling.

Joined by four bedroom suites on the second level is the master suite that has a comfortable sitting area with a gas fireplace and wet bar, access to a private screened porch that overlooks wooded acreage, and a luxury bath that features a Jacuzzi tub and a spa shower. There is also a laundry area.

The home’s fully-finished walk-out lower level is beautifully carpeted and includes a spacious and open great room with a large sitting area, a stone fireplace, a stone wet bar, a playroom that accesses the backyard, a wired media room, a gym area, and an additional bedroom with a full bath.

A covered walkway connects the home to a six-car garage that has a lovely upper-level two-bedroom, one-bath guest suite complete with a private entrance, hardwood floors, a full kitchen with granite counters, a laundry area, and a small private deck.

“This listing is one of those dream homes that doesn’t come along too often. The combination of high-quality construction and custom interior and exterior finishes are further enhanced by the home’s incredibly beautiful surroundings,” Olympia said.

“Long & Foster’s Extraordinary Properties program, leveraged by our exclusive affiliation with Christie’s International Real Estate, in select areas, and our affiliations with Luxury Portfolio International, Luxury Real Estate and Leading Real Estate Companies of The World, provides the global spotlight needed to connect qualified buyers to distinguished properties such as this lovely custom residence,” said Gary A.
