A full panoramic view of the Potomac! One of the best river views in Merry-Go-Round Farm! Nestled at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, this craftsman style design is reminiscent of a European country estate. A slate roof, copper gutters, rustic stonework, and moss green trim blend seamlessly with the spectacular wooded setting. Ideally sited there is a welcoming garden courtyard with three car garage and extra parking allowing the rear of the house to have an unobstructed panoramic view of the Potomac River. Exceptional quality and attention to detail is readily evident both inside and out. According to the architect, Jim Rill, there is not a single architectural detail that was not specifically designed for this house. Extensive use of quarter-sewn oak trim and paneling add warmth and beauty throughout and compliment beautiful stonework, leaded glass accent windows, wood beams and honed Jerusalem limestone floors. From the living room with heated limestone flooring, wooded beamed ceiling, a honed marble fireplace and wall of windows to the dining room which sits in the curved turret, to the family room with wood beamed ceiling, stone fireplace, built in cabinetry and three sets of French doors opening to the balcony, every room is exceptional. The "Heart of the Home" is the craftsman inspired kitchen which continues the use of quarter-sewn oak paneling. Exquisite wood cabinetry with wrought brass hardware was designed by Jennifer Gilmore kitchens and is enhanced by granite countertops, tile backsplash and heated limestone floor. The circular breakfast area overlooks the woodsy backyard and the Potomac River. The perfect place for a morning coffee!A handcrafted quarter-sewn oak paneled staircase leads to the upper level.
