9563 Edmonston Drive, Great Falls, VA 22066: OPEN SUNDAY APRIL 17 FROM 1-4
Tucked away in the Carrwood Estates in Great Falls, this home and its setting are quintessential Great Falls. Located between Beach Mill Road and the Potomac, the Carrwood Estates neighborhood is one of Great Falls’ most desirable locations, with an exclusive enclave of twenty homes, ranging from brick Georgians, contemporaries and Tudors, to a modern farmhouse with (real!) sheep, all backing to miles of woodland walking trails along the river.
Truly, it is like living year round on your own elegant and private nature retreat.
The home, named “Maywood”, greets guests with style, grace and comfort. It is situated on a five acre lot bordered by parkland with picturesque country estate views. The front circular drive adds to the timeless curb appeal of the home, which was custom designed by architect John Neufeld.
We love the details – the inviting entry with leaded glass transom windows, the pocket doors to the dining room, the plaster crown moulding, the high ceilings, the cozy mahogany library. There is even a greenhouse, perfect for a gardener’s break from the mid-winter doldrums and for wintering-over delicate plants.
The gourmet kitchen has custom cherry cabinetry and opens to a sunny breakfast room with floor to ceiling windows. There are 5 bedrooms, including a large master suite with four walk-in closets, a separate sitting room and a spacious master bath.
The neighborhood is a nature-lover’s delight with easy Potomac River access for kayaks and canoes. Adrenaline junkies will love the access to rock climbing, trail running, and hiking. Canoe to Clagett Island, or fish off the banks of the Potomac. It’s all a short walk from your backyard!
The home is listed at $1,745,000. The last sale in the neighborhood was $2,000,000 in 2013. We think the combination of neighborhood, location, quality, elegance and acreage makes this property a great value. Come see us at the first open on Sunday, April 17 between 1 and 4, or call Ginny at 571-236-3405 for a private tour.
