A slice of paradise with a pool and a lakefront view, a wide expanse of green leading to the water's edge with a private dock landscaped against a backdrop of gorgeous mature trees ... all that and so, so much more in this grand 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath, 3 story Chapel Hill Estate colonial! The gently curving brick pathway that leads to the front entrance sets the tone to the understated elegance of this home. From the vaulted ceiling capped foyer, an impressive library/home office with beautiful, built-in, custom shelving welcomes. From here, the eye is drawn forward on newly refinished, warm hardwood flooring from the formal living room anchored by the first of four gas log burning fireplaces, a recurring theme of cozy comfort in this home, towards the formal dining area framed by a massive bay window ... generous in size to better admire the breathtaking view of the lake and nature's bounty beyond. The enviable gourmet chef's kitchen updated with classically styled cabinetry nestling all the stainless steel appliances offers a touch of modern elegance in clearly what is the heart of the home. This space is where wonderful meals can be prepared and also enjoyed in the adjoining breakfast nook that spills over to the comfort of the family room, filled with natural light from the abundant floor to ceiling windows. More custom shelving and cabinetry provide setting of 2nd fireplace in a space certain to be full of activity for every event and holiday gatherings! One can head on up to the upper level from the tucked away second set of stairs from the family room; however, the view upon reaching the top of the main foyer staircase is just sigh inducing ... hello primary bedroom with private fireplace in sitting area! And oh, delights continue! One is invited further in by another impressively sized bay window for, wait for it, the *piece de resistance* - an even better prospect of the lake, the luscious verdant carpet leading to it and private dock, and the gorgeous multi-tiered deck next to the pool area! Primary bath remodel has practically brand new everything, from exquisite tile pattern in shower stall to yet another breathtaking view of the lake from the generously sized soaking tub! Double walk-in closets complete this most impressive primary bedroom suite. A ensuite 2nd bedroom with private full bath and two other bedrooms, with an adjoining Jack and Jill bathroom, complete this upper level. Can this home have more up its sleeve? Indeed it can! The lower level just goes on forever with a den, a rec area with 4th fireplace that has a wet bar with beverage and wine fridge, a pool changing space, and a private sauna/spa which includes a steam shower to revitalize the mind, body, and soul. One can also just head on out for water fun and splashy recreation in the newly resurfaced, luxurious pool with new pool cover and jacuzzi while enjoying the beautifully designed tiered deck and elegant stone inlaid hardscape softened with lush green shrubs and trees, all privately enclosed from the front with wooden fencing leading to the large size driveway and two car garage! Other notables: 90% of home repainted (2020); power washed and repainted deck (2020); HVAC and hot water heater (2019). One can get lost in this indulgence of nature's bounty and quickly forget that the DC metro area is within easy access with proximity to I-495. Situated in the Wakefield Forest/Frost/Woodson pyramid, the crew can also easily get to nearby Wakefield Chapel Recreation Association via pathways to its pool and tennis courts. Living in this home is a dream, but it could be a reality for you.
