RARE opportunity to own a DARRYL CARTER re-designed residence in the exclusive ARCTURUS ON THE POTOMAC enclave of just 15 homes which share a private POTOMAC RIVER WATERFRONT park! This home, which the international award-winning interior designer completely renovated in 2011, features SEASONAL RIVER VIEWS from all three floors. The Darryl Carter interior tracks closely to his New Traditional design aesthetic, including custom millwork and cabinetry throughout, ebony-stained hardwood floors, a signature living room fireplace treatment and built in shelving with reclaimed wood, and a stunning LIBRARY/DINING ROOM with reclaimed wood ceiling beams. The recessed doors throughout the house and gorgeous staircase add to the quiet luxury. The Family Room/Kitchen features a DELUXE CHEF’S KITCHEN complete with Wolf & Subzero appliances and custom cabinetry which seamlessly unifies the space. In addition to upgrading the kitchen, the current owners replaced the roof, guttering, HVAC and water heater. Relined fireplaces and custom organization systems in all closets, a refinished half basement, and a custom mudroom/coat closet are also newer additions. The finished studio above the 2-car garage is a bonus for you to enjoy. This great Lifestyle opportunity is located off the scenic Mount Vernon bike trail in what was once the northern edge of George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate, just 5 minutes south of Old Town Alexandria. Recreational opportunities are endless: biking, paddle boarding, kayaking, running, sailing, hiking and more. Only 8 miles from Reagan National Airport and 11 miles to the National Mall, this elegant home nestled among the tall trees on the west bank of the Potomac River is a luxury retreat from the bustle of the Nation’s Capital. Please see Documents section for full list of upgrades to the property.
