Meet Your New Dream Home (There’s a Beach!)

Imagine your own private beach. A space to get away, listen to waves lapping at the shore, and watch airplanes fly by. Where are you picturing? Some tropical destination, far from home? Surely one that requires a lengthy plane ride.

Picture again: a private drive up to a 10,000-square-foot home with water views from almost every room. A balcony overlooking the water, a patio and breezeway that step out to a private path to the beach. Lush greenery all around.

Are you envisioning somewhere in Alexandria? Probably not…but you could be. Our upcoming listing at 833 Herbert Springs Road meets the above descriptions exactly. It is currently offered privately with The Patterson Group at TTR Sotheby’s International Realty for $2,490,000 and is perfect for you if you love being near the water but also want to be close to Old Town, National Landing, and Washington, D.C.

The home at 833 Herbert Spring Road redefines majestic. The first impression begins with the neighborhood, a magnificent, tranquil area off of the George Washington Parkway with grand homes atop vast, treed lots. Turn onto a private road and continue until you approach house number 833, and its beautifully landscaped front yard and long driveway leading up to a striking modern-Victorian-style home.

The wraparound front porch greets you as you step inside the foyer adorned with high ceilings, classic and luxurious moldings, artful pendants, and a staircase with two landings. Make your way through the 2011-built home and you’ll see three finished levels with water views, two fireplaces, and a true entertainer’s layout designed with generously sized rooms.

Think: designer marble kitchen with a butler’s pantry; a family room with a river-facing balcony; a living room, dining room, and private office; a circular sunroom; a mudroom; two half baths; a master suite with a sitting room, two custom walk-in closets, and a spa bath; four additional upper-level bedrooms, each with walk-in closets and en-suite baths; a finished walk-out basement with a rec room, home theater, two bedrooms, and expansive storage; and exquisite architectural details throughout…the makings of a dream home, all right here in Alexandria, Virginia.
