Description

Nestled at the end of Millwood Lane (newly paved), on a gentle, beautifully landscaped five-acre slope abutting on Captain Hickory Run, this elegant home fits as if it is meant to be there. You are only 10 minutes to Tysons, yet you feel like you are a hundred miles from anyone. This fascinating home is filled with unique, high-end details just waiting to be discovered. Commissioned by the owners, the frame structure, uses Native eastern white pine. The wood was green when built and the slight shrinkage during the drying process causes the frame to be tight, while developing natural checking in the timbers. Assembled using historic post and beam mortise and tenon construction with oak connecting pegs, no nails were used in the building frame. The fork in groove style frame gives the home a unique look. The ten-foot wide front porch with its dry stacked stone facade is perfect for sitting with an iced tea and watching nature. The green grand manor roof has a sixty-year life, so it is beautiful and everlasting.The interior of the house features the exposed, loadbearing post and beams so none of the interior walls are loadbearing. The interior doors of the house are all reclaimed from an 18th Century house. The entire house is heated with water-piped radiant heat throughout each floor. The heated water recycles, so there is instant hot water. There is also a forced air propane heating system. With thermal all-casement windows and insulated panels in the homes structure, this house is a model of energy efficiency. You can see that a lot of thought went into building this one in a lifetime offering.The main floor has variable-width hickory floors. The center of this level is a huge, tiled, open plan, gourmet kitchen cabinets with inset pecan wood door-and-drawers. A generous center island has hanging seats on the breakfast bar. With two sinks, sub-zero refrigerator, and two dishwashers, the kitchen is ready to be used for entertaining or hanging out with family. To one side of the kitchen lies a grand two-story great room with vaulted truss beams and a working dry-stack stone fireplace. On this side is a generous dining area, a library-office and a guest powder room. On the other side of the kitchen lies a more casual space, as you come in from the double-depth four car garage you have a mud room, full bath and an intimate family living area. Between the two lies a three-season porch with jalousie windows that lets out to a 600 square foot veranda. This is perfect for summer grilling.On the upper level, the master bedroom suite has his and her closets and a sitting area. The bedroom has a king~s-truss vaulted ceiling with three walls of windows looking into nothing but serene forest. One wall leads out onto a private porch oasis with outdoor Jacuzzi. This porch is also accessed from the master bath with two vanities, pecan cabinetry and a large shower with body sprayers.The upper level also boasts Five other bedrooms. Four of the bedrooms come with a loft that the kids will love. With a window overlooking the beams of great room, the fifth bedroom can be used as an office. To finish upstairs is one of two laundry rooms, large enough house the sewing area and a built-in ironing board. Larger than the main or upper levels, the full walk out lower level has the seventh bedroom with full bath. There is also a full kitchen and a half bath. The enormous gaming area fits a movie-viewing area and a pool table. It has a second dry-stack stone fireplace. The second laundry room also has a dog-wash shower. This level has two extra rooms that have built-in cabinets for a crafts room and a workshop, so everyone has their space.I have saved the best for last with the fenced in pool that is deep enough for a diving board. It has a water feature and a spa. An attractive screened in gazebo is next to the pool. The yard has a sixteen-zone sprinkler system perfect for the exquisite landscaping. The home was also set up for a generator.

Great Falls

Although primarily a bedroom community for Washington, D.C., one major attraction is Great Falls Park which overlooks the Great Falls of the Potomac River, for which the community and the park are named. George Washington was involved with building a canal around the falls on the southwest, or Virginia, side, called the Patowmak Canal, which never became commercially viable. Remnants of the canal and of a village around the canal named Matildaville are still visible in the park. The Great Falls and Old Dominion Railroad extended along Old Dominion Drive to Great Falls Park in 1906. That right of way is now Old Dominion Drive, which runs from Arlington County all the way into the park. Through most of its history, Great Falls has been a farming community. The original landowners (after King Charles II) were the Fairfax cousins - Thomas, Lord of Fairfax and his cousin, William Fairfax. The two men owned over 18,000 acres in Fairfax County, including what is now Great Falls. Most of the landowners in the area can trace their property rights back to one of the Fairfax men.

Quality of Life

Present day homesteads in Great Falls tend to spread out over an acre or more of land, two to five acres is the norm. There are no condominiums or townhouses in Great Falls. Re-Sale and new homes range in price from $500,000 to over $3.5 Million. If horseback riding is your passion, this is the place to live. There are riding trails throughout the area, including Turner Farm Equestrian Park, which is run by Fairfax County Parks Authority. The central shopping district is called the Village Green. Stores in the Village Green include the Jinny Beyer Quilt Studio, owned and operated by the world renowned quilter, Jinny Beyer. The Village Green hosts community celebrations around Easter (Spring Festival, including an Egg Hunt), Fourth of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas (Tree Lighting), as well as concerts "On the Green" in the summer. There are many fine restaurants in Great Falls, including L'Auberge Chez Francois, which was rated one of Open Table Diners' 2010 Top 50 restaurants in the US.

Great Falls, National Park is naturally the main outdoor venue in Great Falls. There is always something to do at the park. Picnickers, walkers, nature lovers and tourists flock to the park all year long. Rock climbers and explorers/historians can also find plenty to do in this multi-use park. The Olympic Kayak team is known to practice in the swirling waters below the falls. The Park Service and the Kayakers recently negotiated an agreement allowing the most experienced of their ranks the opportunity to “run” the class V+ rapids at the falls. Occasionally, visitors can thrill to the sight of a kayaker and boat deliberately plunging head first over the falls.

Getting Around

The open spaces and tranquil lifestyle of Great Falls come with a catch. Getting in and out of the area can be time consuming depending on the time of day and direction of your commute. There are no nearby major roads, except Rt. 7, Leesburg Pike. And Route 7 merely takes you to the border of Great Falls. You'll need to turn off onto smaller two lane roads to find your way home. Primary access to Great Falls is by Rt. 193 and / or Old Dominion Drive. Both roads are two lane strips cutting through beautiful rolling countryside. If you value open spaces and want a large piece of land to call home, the drive will be worth your effort.
