[For a 3D or Virtual Reality tour, click here and scroll down.] Nestled on 3.1 acres of wooded land sits one of McLean’s most dramatic, and distinctive properties. Designed by Ted Bower, an associate of Frank Lloyd Wright, this sophisticated contemporary features some of the most intricate design details inside and some of the most spectacular views imaginable from the night sky.  The interior spans over 4,000 square feet and features soaring ceilings and architecturally unique windows throughout.  An exciting floor plan celebrates nature by providing decks and patios that are accessible from every main room and bedroom.  This extraordinary example of modern European design truly brings the outdoors in and is perfect for comfortable living as well as for entertaining family and friends.  You can have the best of both worlds with this tucked away, one-of-a-kind home in McLean, just minutes from Washington, DC, the Capital Beltway and Metro.

A dramatic entry foyer leads into a large living room featuring vaulted ceilings, angled walls and windows, beautiful hardwood floors and an open staircase leading to the upper levels of the house. This space is ideal for an art collector’s showcase.

The chef’s kitchen with its ample work space is equipped with Viking, Miele, Sub-Zero, GE and Bosch appliances, Neff cabinets, Quetzel marble counters and heated marble flooring. The open floor plan allows the chef’s kitchen to flow into a generous sitting area with a gas fireplace and a stunning custom “greenhouse” breakfast alcove, giving the whole area an airy and cohesive feel. The breakfast room opens onto a large patio offering views of the beautiful gardens and wooded yard with extensive landscaping.

In the dining room, natural light streams through the floor to ceiling windows to illuminate your table during early evening dinners.

In addition to four bedrooms, 4 full and 2 half baths, there is a large den with a gas fireplace, a library with custom built-in shelving and a wet bar, a large home office, and a cozy “treehouse” loft with a wood burning fireplace that overlooks the main living area.

Shown by appointment only.
