Welcome to 1943 Lorraine Avenue of McLean, VA, originally bought in 1984 and knocked and re-built in 2006. The house is beautifully designed to bring the outside indoors. This state of the art, craftsman style home, with approximately 5,355 sq. foot, will take your breath away! The owners put great thought into this nestled home as it rests on a half-acre wooded lot in prestigious Franklin Forest. In fact it is one of the very few houses that overlook Franklin Park. You may recognize the large porch, inspired by the Mount Washington Hotel, which welcomes you into this turn-key 6BD/4.5 BA home. Upon entry, one can't help but notice the natural light streaming in through the banks of windows. Every square inch of the house has been environmentally tested to prevent infiltration/exfiltration of air, insuring little to no waste of energy; This makes the home inexpensive to heat and cool. The peak of the roof is packed with 32~ of insulation making the house incredibly energy efficient. Additionally, the water pipes throughout the dwelling have been filtrated with activated charcoal, producing better quality water than bottled. Charming accents and architectural design combine style with practicality and every space in the home was built with purpose, efficiency and the future in mind. The main level of the home is optimal for entertaining. Front to back, the traditional floorplan offers American cherry wood and provides excellent flow throughout the house. The gourmet kitchen is built with a chef in mind and will keep your feet warm with its thermostat control, heated floors! You~ll also notice stainless steel appliances, tons of storage, and accessibility from various rooms which make entertaining a breeze. Found on the main level is the in-law suite; large bedroom and full bath! Perfect for inter-generational families or for an au pair. A stunning master retreat is found upstairs. An expansive spa bath and massive closet, with the option of expanding into the 476 sq. foot attic space above, provides all one could ask for. Three additional bedrooms, a hall bath and sitting area complete the upper level. There~s even built in plumbing for two additional bathrooms or another laundry room! The lower level is just as functional as the rest of the house and has options to be customized to the owner's needs. Open space in a basement is over rated and this one has the perfect set up with highlights to include a steam room and media room! Inside the media room, a projection wall has been specially treated to allow for clear image projection. This space will definitely become a favorite hangout spot in the home. Head outside to the back patio and yard for another go-to entertaining space with family and friends. A high-powered electrical outlet awaits for a heated swimming pool or hot tub. Gas and electric extensions are also already built in for a potential ~four seasons room~ or ~outdoor kitchen~. The gorgeous lot is landscaped with liriope, perennials and bulbs, and you must see the hand installed driveway which is unique to the Franklin Park area. There~s no need to worry about flooding as the property line has a built-in run off drain and a French drain too sits along the perimeter protecting the house from moisture. Truly a nature lover's dream! If you~re thinking about schools, please note, children can attend Chesterbrook Elementary, Longfellow Middle, and McLean High School from this location. You can~t ask for a better place to call ~home~!
