Escape from the hustle and bustle to your own slice of heaven on the shores of the Potomac River. This week's dream home is a beautiful riverfront mansion in Alexandria.
Every weekend will be like your own little vacation at Grand View. Drive up through your gates and admire the landscaped acreage surrounding your home.
The gracious foyer ushers your guests into the spacious open rooms of the house. The flow on the main floor is just wonderful for entertaining.
Formal living spaces are made to bring in nature by the spectacular views and natural light flowing through the dramatic windows. The dining room can see straight through to the Potomac, making even the simplest family meal special.
Speaking of meals, the kitchen has all the bells and whistles. Double ovens and a wraparound center island will make cooking holiday meals a breeze. The stone fireplace adds a very cozy touch to the adjacent seating area.
Upstairs, the master bedroom features a panoramic view of the river. Can you imagine waking up to this every morning?
The en suite bath is perfect for relaxing after a long day. Bubble bath in a soaking tub while you catch up on your shows? Don't mind if I do!
The basement level has its own full bar and billiards room for after-dinner entertaining. Too tired to make it up the stairs? Not to worry, you've got your own private elevator for that!
Last but certainly not least, no luxury home is complete without a pool. In addition to the timeless slate hardscaping and shade trees, this one is framed by that incomparable view of the Potomac River. Bliss!
The absolute best part of this home is the connection to the river. From its ever-changing views to the great fishing you'll have from your own private dock, the Potomac will provide an incredible backdrop for your luxurious lifestyle.
