Beyond an exciting stone exterior that follows the impressive eclectic style, the entrance hall embodies the famed “wow” factor. It is on display throughout this Southhampton model by Monogram Homes. Scheduled for completion this December, it is listed at $1,895,000 with Janet Price at McEnearney Associates.
MAIN FLOOR: Making a memorable first impression, the double stairway stands between pillars framing the living and dining rooms on either side. This formal front area thus combines the elegance of the symmetrical Colonial design with the convenience of an open, flowing contemporary floor plan.
Hardwood floors and 10-foot ceilings continue throughout this level. Crown molding and chair rail grace and unify the living and dining rooms, foyer, main staircase and upper hall.
Beyond the living room on the left, the front entrance foyer also faces the powder room and the study with a bay window. To the right, the hall leads to the kitchen, which boasts upscale Subzero, Miele and Wolf appliances plus granite counters. The breakfast nook features a rear bay window.
It is open to the family room, where glass doors frame the woodburning fireplace. The kitchen also provides an entrance to the two-car front garage, adjoining the mud room, with a dog shower near the full bath designed for their human companions.
SECOND FLOOR: Behind the double stairway on the second story, the master suite occupies the rear half of this level. The bedroom includes a sitting area. The master bath boasts a soaking tub, a separate glass-enclosed shower and a dual vanity.
On the other side of the stairway, two bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill bath between them while another bedroom adjoins its own bath. Nine-foot ceilings rise above this floor.
LOWER FLOOR: The lower level provides another bedroom and full bath, in addition to the recreation center and the optional wet bar, media center and exercise room. Here, too, nine-foot ceilings provide a sense of spaciousness, leaving a lasting impression.
The public schools are Belle View Elementary, Carl Sandburg Middle and West Potomac High.
