City Close but Country Quiet... Wonderful one level living on the Potomac River in one of Mount Vernon's most sought after enclaves... Belle Rive. This home has been expanded and updated with every feature one may be looking for... flooring, appliances, doors and windows are all top of the line selections and all built-ins and special accents were created by the area's best craftsmen. One enters through an expansive foyer that opens into a 20 X 27 great room with unparalleled views up and down river... views which are protected by easement so your view of the other shore will remain as it did when George Washington lived next door. And you also have a front row seat to all the fireworks displays at Mount Vernon all year.
Great room boasts an oversized gas fireplace and is naturally illuminated by a full wall of windows facing the river and also sunlit by transoms running the length of the room on the opposite wall. The room opens into a TRUE Chef's kitchen with every imaginable hot button kitchen item a Chef desires and requires. Anchored by a five by eight marble island, appliances are by Kitchenaid and Frigidaire and include a 6 burner gas cooktop, double wall ovens, 2 dishwashers, ice maker, and wine cooler. Accented by marble backsplashes that coordinate with the island there is also an additional prep sink and large walk-in pantry PLUS an adjacent home office nook. Formal dining room has vaulted ceiling with built-ins galore and opens onto pool terraces via oversized sliding glass doors as does the great room, master suite, and guest suite. Master Suite is accessed by large cross hall that also functions as a home library with 18 feet of linear shelving perfect for books or to display art as it is lit by eyeball lights. Master suite echoes the great room in volume and also has vaulted ceiling and a wall of glass overlooking the Potomac. It has not one but two dressing rooms with sumptuous his & her baths. This South Wing of the house also has an oversized laundry space along with second foyer at the garage entrance. The North Wing boasts two more bedrooms, each with an ante room for study or home office work, as well as massive five by seven closets and private baths. The Guest Suite with fireplace has a wall of windows overlooking the Potomac similar to that of the Master Suite and also opens onto the pool terraces. Living space is extended outdoors by extensive terraces that encircle the inground pool, the smallest of which measures 9 X 12. And the pool terrace has wonderful nautical railings that enhance the relaxing waterfront lifestyle while also minimizing any disruption to the view from the interior of the house. Extensive professionally landscaped grounds with specimen plantings and rare flowering shrubs. Plus the pleasure of living in a virtual bird sanctuary... Eagles, Heron... all abound right on the premises. Private dock AND boat lift.
Agents say it all the time... But it's true.... This is a ONE OF A KIND property.
