Welcome to a Foxhall estate sited on a hill with nearly an acre of land surrounded by mature trees and offering dramatic Cathedral views. This Williamsburg-inspired brick colonial and property have recently undergone a total transformation and expansion thoughtfully completed to delight the next fortunate owner. With an exceptional layout for large scale entertaining plus comfortable family living, there’s space for everyone. A real strength of the home, though, is its ability to encourage indoor/outdoor living with amenities like a screened-in, covered, outdoor family room with fireplace and ventilated grilling station/kitchen, walls of windows, multiple French doors leading to the garden or stone terrace and a 30’ x 15’ heated swimming pool. A large sport court with artificial turf and an adjacent treehouse create a setting for endless play. Farther into the garden is an outdoor fireplace and small gathering area.
Some of the features on the main level include a gourmet kitchen with massive black walnut center island and breakfast bar that opens to a family room with wet bar, a grand dining room with fireplace and cathedral ceilings, a double-sized living room with large stone fireplace, front and back staircases, an elevator that services all levels, and a coat room.
The lower level is mostly above grade and is separated into 3 distinct areas: 1) A sophisticated wood-paneled family room/bar area with fireplace, billiards space, climate-controlled wine cellar with tasting table, safe room. 2) A large informal recreation room with cork floor, glass-walled exercise room, and exceptional storage. 3) An au-pair suite with full bath
The upper level has five bedrooms and four baths including a spacious owner’s suite with large windows that offer scenic views, abundant closet space, and built-in storage.
A circular motor court at the front of the house leads to an oversized garage. For automotive enthusiasts, the heated garage is a dream space capable of holding up to six cars (using lifts) in three bays.
For more than a century, Washingtonians have found Foxhall Road appealing for its large lots, elegant homes, and proximity to downtown offices and restaurants. Today only a handful of the large properties remain undivided and in private ownership which makes 2601 Foxhall Road an exciting opportunity.
