If Only We Could Spend Thanksgiving Here

No matter how excited you are for your holiday plans, it’s always fun to imagine how Thanksgiving would be if you lived somewhere else. When you’re a realtor, you see so many great kitchens that the imagination part comes easy. This year, we’re imagining how great it would be to entertain in our listing at 9427 Ferry Landing Court.

To start, guests would catch tranquil views of the Potomac River as they drove down Ferry Landing Court towards a riverside cul de sac and reached the striking third house from the river on the left. Talk about a great first impression! The tranquility would continue with easy parking. With your cars out of the way in the 3-car garage, you could direct guests to park in the driveway, which holds about eight cars. Any overflow would find ample street parking on this quiet, private street.

Once inside, guests could spread out across the fantastic open-concept main level. Of course, the kitchen is of the utmost importance in this scenario, so we’ll continue with that. In addition to being completely stunning with a coffered ceiling and granite counters, the kitchen makes entertaining extremely convenient. It features a large center island that provides plenty of space for food prep and/or serving, GE Profile chef’s appliances, and a large pantry for easy ingredient and leftover storage.

The open concept provides a great view of the family room TV, so you could watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade as you were preparing the meal. Friends and family could gather around an inviting fire in the gas fireplace beneath the TV…

or get comfortable in the casual, sunlit breakfast room off of the kitchen…

which overlooks and opens to the huge, flat backyard (which, by the way, is perfect for your annual family football game. The new stone patio also provides space for your Big Green Egg, if you’re smoking-turkey kind of people.)

When it was time to eat, everyone would head into the formal dining room (after a quick stop for a glass of wine at the built-in bar), where they would dine in sophistication amidst elegant wainscoting and warm, natural daylight from floor-to-ceiling windows.

After the meal, everyone would head downstairs to the true entertainer’s basement. There, they could play games in the game room, get drinks at the custom full bar, or head into the media room, wired for seven speakers and two sub speakers, for a post-meal movie that would allow everyone a break from all the conversation!

9427 Ferry Landing Court has seven bedrooms (including a main-level guest suite), six full baths, and more than 7,300 square feet — plenty of room for people to stay awhile. It is now listed for $1,395,000 and is also available for rent for $6,000 a month. Please contact ppatterson@ttrsir.com if you’d like more information!
