Rarely in the 21st Century, let alone inside the Capital beltway, can one be so easily transported to another place and time, yet such is the offering of Elmwood, a modern day farmhouse estate home on 1.33 verdant acres located at 4847 Ravensworth Road. Inviting from first glance, the gentile, covered front porch graciously welcomes you to this truly splendid home. Inside you will find an entryway flanked by formal living and dining rooms, replete with custom moldings and stunning oak floors. Beyond these rooms are an intimate library, a warm, amiable family room, and a lovely sunroom, which all lead to the exquisite rear outdoor entertaining areas of the home.
The upper level features a gorgeous primary bedroom suite with Juliet balcony, which overlooks the breathtaking grounds. In addition, the en suite bathroom is serene, spacious and renovated to perfection. Three additional bedrooms, one with en suite bathroom, and a tastefully renovated full hall bathroom are also found on this level.
The incredible outdoor spaces of this property are simply unmatched. A lovely pergola creates an ideal outdoor entertaining space, and the connecting chevron-laid brick patio is the perfect extension, allowing for ease of use from both indoor and out. A beautiful red barn currently houses a full woodworking shop and basketball court, yet has plenty of additional space to accommodate a new hobby or any enthusiast's collection. The extensive and immaculate grounds have been lovingly maintained and feature numerous perennial plantings as well as boxwood cuttings from the farm on Mount Vernon. Elmwood is a place unlike any other in the Capital region. It is a home full of history, serenity, timelessness and tranquility, yet only minutes from the cultural riches of DC and its surroundings.
