A custom built modern, yet perfectly practical, contemporary designed by renowned-Architect Mark Hughes of Georgetown’s Harrison Design, 10610 Vickers Drive offers the perfect escape to a tranquil 5-plus acre fully-wooded estate, backing to miles of parkland that will never be developed, yet only 5 miles from Tysons Corner, 11 miles to Washington DC, 7 miles to Dulles Airport and 15 miles to Reagan National via either 66 or the Dulles Access Road, both of which are only 3 miles from the driveway.
With recent zoning changes encouraging Accessory Living Units, the equestrian-zoned property allows infinite possibilities for expansion into a private compound with a stable, or preserve the property and its oak, ash, poplar, and Virginia holly-laden pristine forest as private respite from world. The property is directly connected to hundreds of miles of equestrian and the Fairfax Country X-country trail system – yet only minutes from Tysons and DC.
Every detail of this remarkable home has been considered, from the 5”plank, hand-finished oak heartwood floors, to the custom inset kitchen cabinets, highlighted with rift-sawn oak accents, quartz countertops, and Miele appliances, including a combi-steam oven and two dishwashers, as well as drawer fridge and ice maker. The kitchen opens to the rear to a large Ipe deck overlooking miles of parkland, as well as the enormous south-facing sun-filled living area with 14 foot ceilings and a double-sided gas fireplace. A 12 foot high portrait window frames the heated infinity-edge pool and year-round spa with a therapeutic jet-packed captain’s chair. Adjacent to the pool is yet another Ipe deck, this one covered and heated with an enormous dining area that includes a 4 foot built in Lynx gas grill and side burner.
It is the 2000+ square foot Owner’s Suite that sets this home apart for all the others. With a wall of glass facing the top of the tree canopy of the surrounding forest, the Owner’s Suite is highlighted with a heated screened porch with soaring 20 foot ceiling with Ipe flooring and a double-sided gas stone fireplace separating the sleeping chamber from the sitting area. Moving into the spa-like bath, there are two walk-in closets fully fitted with custom cabinets and shelving, the larger of which with a full size washer and dryer, serving as a second laundry for the Owner’s personal use. The spa-bath features 10 foot ceilings with wall-to-ceiling custom windows with built in blinds, providing the same expansive forest views from the nearly 50 square foot glass steam shower outfitted with a rain head and body sprays. Adjacent to the steam shower is a full-sized cedar-lined stone-heated sauna.
Beneath the Owner’s Suite sits over 2000 square feet of flexible, fully-conditioned space, featuring a bathroom, wet bar, 16 foot projector TV, and finished with polished concrete flooring. In addition to the fully-outfitted gym with large windows facing the forest with a professional gym floor, this space can be used as a ballroom, a showroom for a car collection (think Ferris Bueller) or partitioned into additional bedroom space.
Other features of this very special home include a whole-house natural-gas powered generator (it even powers the pool in the event of an outage), a French-oak paneled powder room (with a Koehler Numi bidet), a three-story rift-sawn oak paneled elevator, a master-cabinet-builder produced custom Murphy bed, custom closets throughout, and whole-house Sonos audio system.
