Between its cathedral-like scale, no-expense-spared design ethic, and features like a home theater and a pair of two-car garages, this red brick Chantilly mansion is among the most impressive neighborhood homes on the market in Loudoun. It is currently listed at $1.4 million.
“From the expansive yet functional square footage, to the beautifully landscaped grounds, this home is a true gem,” co-listing agents Sarah Reynolds Oji and Jennifer Dennis wrote on the online listing.
The six-bedroom, 8,308-square-foot house is part of the Cedar Hunt neighborhood and located centrally in sprawling, ever-growing eastern Loudoun. Hutchison Farm Elementary School and J. Michael Lunsford Middle are five minutes or less by car, while Freedom High School is easily walkable. Also within short driving distance are South Riding Golf Club, a bounty of Chantilly shopping and dining options, and Dulles Airport.
First to greet guests as they venture up the driveway is the aforementioned pair of garages, which face each other from opposite ends of the main house and, like the rest of the facade, are covered in clean red brick. Tall windows and wall-mounted lanterns surround as guests approach the front door, which itself sits at the top of a short set of steps flanked by iron fences — a hint of flair to precede the stunning interior.
A two-story ceiling hangs over the entryway and the double-sided grand staircase, which is carpeted and lined with wrought-iron balusters. The high ceiling extends into the main room that lies on the other side of the staircase, flooded with light that reflects off the polished hardwoods thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows. A sitting room and family room flank the main room on either side, the latter featuring a stone, gas-burning fireplace.
Immediately adjacent to the family room on one side is a heavily windowed, tiled sunroom, with ceiling fans overhead so the abundant natural light can be enjoyed year-round. Also connected to the family room is the large dining area and the kitchen, which features a large, granite-topped island, gourmet, stainless-steel appliances and a walk-in pantry. An executive home office with built-in shelving can be found elsewhere on the main level.
Also on this level is a guest suite with a full en-suite bath, while the owner’s suite and four other bedrooms are on the upper level. Reynolds Oji and Dennis describe the owner’s suite as an “oasis” with two oversized walk-in closets, a sizeable seating area, and an en-suite bath that includes a double-vanity with plenty of counter space, a large soaking tub and a tiled, glassed-in shower.
The sixth bedroom and adjoining full bath are on the finished lower level, the rest of which is a spacious getaway for indoor entertainment. Along with the large, carpeted rec room, there is a home theater with a built-in screen, projector and sound system hookups. The basement also leads directly out to the back yard, from which one can access the paved patio with a wood-burning fireplace, the second-story deck with retractable awning and the adjoining, screened-in porch, equipped with a ceiling fan and lanterns for year-round, day-or-night frivolity.
