FAVORITE FEATURES OF OUR HOME
We always ask our owners to tell us what they feel makes their home special. Here are their favorite things in their own words…
• Sitting at the kitchen table in the sun room looking out at the forest – it’s like we live in our own private park.
• We are surrounded by woods yet can be in Tysons in less than 10 minutes and DC in 30 minutes.
• We are about 30 minutes from both Dulles and Reagan National airports, giving us a lot more options when booking travel.
• We can leave a concert at the Kennedy Center at 10 pm and be home by 10:30 pm.
• The convenience of working out in our full gym so we don’t have to waste time driving to a gym.
• Enjoying a glass of wine on the deck with family and friends.
• Watching our “neighbors” – deer, fox and tons of birds.
• Big windows in the showers – its great showering in sunlight and watching the trees and wildlife!
• The internal window in the master bedroom overlooking the Great Room. It’s a great way to keep in touch with everything going on in the house.
• The open floor plan encourages family togetherness but there is also enough room for everyone to have their own space when needed!
