Stunning contemporary home upgraded by lavish amenities and sleek, sophisticated, modern design by internationally renowned architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen. Three levels boast over five thousand square feet of finished living space. On nearly a one acre lot in the Chapel Hill neighborhood, 817 Vicar Lane is situated a pleasing distance from the road. Many mature trees provide a wall of privacy between the road and this home. A semi-circle driveway and attached garage offer ample parking. Chapel Hill is an easy commute to Alexandria, Arlington and D.C. Attractive landscaping lines the slate walkway leading to the home's entrance where a wider- than-average door is columned by window panels to each side, making for a formidable first impression. The main level offers space for both exceptional entertaining and comfortable daily living. In the living spaces, pendant lighting is suspended from towering Cathedral ceilings. Floor-to-ceiling window panels line the walls to the rear of the home and overlook the backyard. A wood-burning fireplace and black granite surround add cozy ambiance to the living room. A wet bar is nearby in the hallway. Just outside the living room is the rear deck, with a hot tub, and fenced backyard. The blinds in each room are motorized and controlled by a remote; choose a little or a lot of light to suit the mood. Hardwood floors add character while the steep slope of the Cathedral ceilings adds drama. Countless closets and custom shelving offer serious storage space. The main level master suite is enormous; it adjoins a library with floor-to-ceiling built-in shelving. A hallway of closets and shelving leads to the luxurious bath, with Calcutta marble, sleek white cabinetry, a soaking tub, and a separate, exceptionally large shower with custom tile and multiple shower heads. Premium Thermador stainless steel appliances, including an electric range and vent hood, contrast softly colored Calcutta marble countertops in the kitchen - renovated in 2016. An island bar offers seating. The adjoining pantry has a wine fridge and provides more than enough storage for kitchen necessities. A spiral staircase at the edge of the kitchen connects the three floor home. The upper level has three bedrooms, all with en suite baths. The walk-out basement on the lower level has a fourth full bath and small kitchen. There are nine heating and eight cooling zones throughout the home, each individually controlled by an inverter unit. These units allow consistent temperatures and require minimal electricity. The main floor is heated by radiant floor heat that heats from the floor up for consistent, efficient warmth. A sump pump protects this home from water damage.
