Description

**Price improvement** This is a rare opportunity to own one of the last Historic Mansions in Great Falls. Dating back to the 1800~s, The Murphy Estate is heralded as the ~Grand Dame~ of Walker Road. It reigns supreme overlooking its sumptuous grounds filled with large trees, vast meadows, and surrounded by meandering walkways traveling through flower gardens and romantic topiaries. A private lane leads across the lawn bordered by a promenade of trees which eventually reaches the picturesque Koi pond and main portico. The house is vast in size with an enticing formality that is hard to find now-a- days. It has been enhanced and re-designed with an architectural flair allowing a features list that would fill an entire novel. The great hall rises two stories reaching an orchestral loft soaring above. The grand salon awaits your grand piano. The formal dining room features hand crafted trim, wainscoting, customized period draperies, and crowns as found through-out most of the elegant rooms. The library is fitted with an esquire~s trim work and an author~s bay overlooking the outdoor fireplace. The kitchen is vibrant and convenient, opening to the sky-lit breakfast room, and the hearth-warmed morning room. The casual living area offers over thirty feet of luxury with French doors leading to the loggia, entertainment plaza, and outdoor cook-station. The master suite is as large as a separate apartment with a fabulous master bathroom. Each world-class bedroom offers an updated bath ~en-suite~. The lower level is fully finished with a country-inn styled recreation room, party kitchen, an exercise room, media alcove, hobby room, three car garage, pet grooming stations, plus a flexible area that might be used as a suite of offices, in-law~s domain, or domestic quarters. The land is superior in every way with the possibility to sub divide. Its location is very convenient half way between the Great Falls Center and Colvin Run Village just off Walker Road. This may be your last chance to own a mansion of this Historic magnitude
