Gorgeous estate on over an acre with easy access to interstate 495
Take advantage of this opportunity to own an exquisite custom home in prestigious Brook Hills Estate—a community featuring large single family homes close to the area’s top schools, restaurants and shopping.
Located at 5115 Ravensworth Road in Annandale, Virginia, this estate home on more than one acre offers a tranquil private retreat. Listed by Elizabeth Lucchesi, a sales associate with Long & Foster’s Alexandria/Old Town Historic District office in Alexandria, the home is being offered for $1,300,000. It includes six bedrooms, five full and two-half bathrooms, and nearly 6,000 square feet.
“Annandale is another place to be inside the beltway beginning with an ‘A’ – it offers comfortable family living with so many amenities,” said Lucchesi. “Brook Hills is gently urban, with homes on a minimum of one acre, which is hard to find in such close proximity to the Nation’s Capital. This unbeatable community also has great public schools, including Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, and it is located only 20 minutes from Washington, D.C.”
As you arrive at the property, you’ll first notice its beautiful park-like setting, accented by a variety of perennials, flowering shrubs and trees, offering year-round color and texture. The home’s buttercup yellow exterior is refreshing and welcoming. The current owners have taken extraordinary care of the home and have done a major renovation – from the kitchen an bathrooms to the systems and outdoor spaces.
Greet your guests in grand style in the spectacular eight-foot wide foyer. The home’s fabulous design and flow gives new meaning to the center hall colonial. The width of the foyer continues to a gallery in the center of the home. The elegant foyer is open to the living room with a bay window and is the perfect place serve drinks before dinner with a view of the well-manicured front yard.
Your family celebrations and dinner parties will be remembered in the spacious dining room under the twinkle of the crystal chandelier. In warm weather, open the French doors extend your party to the screened-in porch and expansive patio with a gas firepit.
It will be easy to prepare a family meal or cook for a crowd in the gourmet kitchen with granite countertops and two of nearly everything, including two islands, two cooktops—Thermador gas range and hood, and one Gaggenau induction stovetop—two ovens and a heating drawer. The Thermador refrigerator is framed by two pantries with slide-out shelving. Enjoy your morning coffee in the charming breakfast area with a bay window overlooking the backyard.
The family room, which shares a two-sided fireplace with the gallery, is a large room and an ideal gathering spot where family members can relax, talk or watch the game. This room opens to a covered porch in the back of the home. On this floor, you’ll also find a powder room, mud room and an ensuite bedroom with a walk-in closet.
Upstairs, you’ll find two spacious master suites, both with spa-like bathrooms and large dressing rooms with custom cabinetry to store all your clothes and accessories in style. This level has two additional bedrooms and a bathroom.
The lower level has something for everyone with a game room, media room, wet bar, bedroom, full bathroom and exercise room that could be used as an office.
A few of the many other features of this home include two gas water heaters, three HVAC units and an external water pump to ensure proper water pressure to the 13-zone irrigation system.
