Welcome to Towlston Abbey in McLean, VA. Built in 2001 by a local husband-and-wife architect team, this stunning English-inspired luxury home with separate carriage house combines traditional design details with modern lines in a way that makes it both a home and a work of architectural art. Traveling down the private drive, you will encounter a glimpse of the dramatic lines of the copper standing seam roof and the stateliness of the traditional Flemish bond brick exterior through the forested enclave that surrounds the property. Once inside, a black walnut central staircase, American cherry floors, and poplar paneling suffuse the living areas with natural warmth and vitality, visually connecting the rooms to the beautiful grounds visible through every handcrafted window. Meanwhile, the incredibly tall ceilings lend an airy brightness throughout the space, supporting the homes sense of flow and possibility. The modern floor plan is ideal for both large-scale entertaining and intimate gatherings, while traditional finishes create a sense of warm hospitality. Each of the 5 gorgeous Rumford fireplaces throughout the home offer a perfect focal point. The Rumford design uses the principles of radiant heat to warm the rooms while drawing out smoke and preserving air freshness. In the kitchen, details like custom cabinets for housing specialty flours and an area of accompanying elevated counters for bread making ensure that even the most exacting home chef has what they need for creating the meals that become cherished memories. The kitchen features a Traulsen commercial refrigerator, slate countertops, and custom cabinetry hand built in Kennebec, Maine. Upstairs, the traditional Garrett design of the 4 beautiful bedrooms fosters a feeling of coziness which is balanced by the grandeur of the gothic-inspired architectural cutouts that frame each second-story window. When the doors of the master bedroom Juliet balcony are opened, the upstairs is infused with the soothing sounds of the creek which wends its way through the property. The seamless integration between indoors and outdoors is a hallmark of this home and helps create the feeling of being both protected from the elements and connected with nature. Towlston Abbey is seated on nearly 3 acres that backs up to parkland, creating limitless opportunities for connecting with and exploring nature. The home?s extensive private grounds establish a sense of retreat and privacy and afford you the option to build additions, pools, etc, in the future. Located just outside the Tysons Corner area and Downtown McLean, the impeccable location affords you the ability to be in Tysons, Reston, Arlington, Montgomery County, MD, and/or the District in quick fashion. The carriage house features a 3 car side load garage with 1,000+ sqft of living space above, perfect for guests, au-pairs, in-laws, and/or working/studying from home. Dont miss out on this amazingly rare offering. ***THE 6TH BEDROOM & 5TH FULL BATH IS IN THE CARRIAGE HOUSE***
