Property Details

OPEN: THURS 6-7:30PM; SAT & SUN 1-3PM; Welcome to Stafford Hill- A modern Victorian masterpiece in the heart of Arlington's sought after Cherrydale neighborhood. Built in 2004 and completely reimagined and expanded in 2018, this storybook residence features 5400 impeccable interior square feet that include six bedrooms and five full baths spanning four, beautifully finished levels. Grand yet intimate, classic yet modern, an entertainer's dream that also feels like a private retreat- it is a marvel how one home can juxtapose so many qualities so perfectly in both its interior and exterior space. While this home embraces all of the elements, the one that unifies the entire space is glorious natural light. With 77 windows and doors, four skylights, two wraparound porches, an observation deck and two separate balconies this home was built with the natural beauty of its surroundings in mind. Moreover, Stafford Hill is sited on a gorgeously manicured 10,000 square foot corner lot that was designed by an award winning landscape architect and sits at one of the highest points in all of Arlington, affording the owners of this unique offering majestic views of the entire Washington DC skyline from National Airport to the Washington Monument to the National Cathedral. The interior of the home contains a playful, yet elegant mix of new and old world style. Six piece crown molding, gilded brass light fixtures and charming gas fireplaces blend seamlessly with 8" wide plank hardwood flooring, a crisp, contemporary paint scheme and every modern amenity one could dream of. Despite its size and grandeur, Stafford Hill remains magically intimate thanks to its perfectly proportioned division of space. The main level features an inviting entry foyer, a salon room with gas fireplace and grand piano, a separate dining room, a study, a living room with gas fireplace and a screened porch on the main level. The heart of the home lies in the gorgeously renovated, table-space kitchen off the salon with its Quartz counters & Carrera Marble backsplash, Virginia Soapstone Farmhouse sink, high-end appliances (Viking, Subzero, Bosch), Brizo Polished Chrome SmartTouch faucets, central island with a second hammered metal sink, built in bench seating and enormous walk in pantry. The first upper level contains three bedrooms and two full baths, including an expansive primary suite that opens to a wraparound porch and incredible observation deck that affords verdant views in Spring and Summer and Skyline & Monument views in Winter. The second upper level contains an additional two bedrooms- one built into the Victorian turret and another with an oversized picture window oriented above the observation deck to share its remarkable view, a gas stove and french doors leading out to a Widow's Walk balcony- as well as a full bathroom and separate loft-like living room. The lower level was masterfully redone as part of the 2018 renovation to provide an open and flexible family room that currently includes a theater room with a BenQ projector, built-in surround sound, blackout shades and a 110" screen adorned with retractable velvet theater curtains, a gym area, a large play area, a kitchenette, an additional bedroom, a renovated modern bath and an expansive storage room with additional washer/dryer hook up. A secret opening behind the floor to ceiling mirror leads to a hidden playroom under the stairs to add that touch of old world Victorian mystery and charm to this delightfully modern space. The list of thoughtful upgrades to this home is endless with many designed to aid in the comfort & performance of the home, including a three zone HVAC system, dual 75 gallon water heaters, additional soundproofing and full waterproofing in the lower level, a separate washer/dryer hookup on the lower level, low voltage LED lighting on all interior staircases and an irrigation & custom exterior lighting system for the sensational lot.
