Once a Virginia country estate, Three Oaks now enjoys one of the finest locations in the Washington area. Downtown Washington, Georgetown, Olde Town Alexandria, sophisticated shopping, major airports and fine dining are just minutes away. Indicative of the grand homes of its time, this Center Hall Colonial boasts a front porch with twenty-foot columns, ten-foot ceilings throughout, hand-milled molding, heart pine wood floors, brass hardware and solid paneled, over-sized doors. Since its original construction, Three Oaks has undergone a major restoration, with completely renovated bathrooms and all of the amenities and mechanical services expected in a contemporary luxury home. This includes a chef's kitchen with high-end built-in appliances, exotic grade granite and wine storage, three zoned heating and central air conditioning, a wireless security system, security lighting, tankless water heater, automatic garage door openers, and a whole-home intercom system. Care was taken so that each upgrade maintains the original character and quality of the home. Today, Three Oaks is sited on nearly three-quarter acres amid mature oak trees, magnolia trees, English boxwoods and azaleas which are thought to be over seventy years old. Lush gardens, brick walkways, a foot bridge and koi ponds provide the grounds with a park-like setting and character which parallels that of the main house. Privacy is provided by a fifteen-foot, evergreen hedge and nearly a thousand feet of fencing. Visitors are welcomed through a double pillared entrance and a brand new and intricately designed stone driveway lined by a gracefully curved fence which leads guests past manicured gardens. A stately willow oak tree with a five-foot trunk shelters the drive and hints at the character of the residence that lies beyond. A carriage house incorporates a fully equipped kitchen and attached laundry room, two large bedrooms, full bath and integral double car garage making it suitable as a guest house, office or rental unit. The main garage is connected to the house by a loggia and was remodeled by GarageTek, providing additional garage parking for two cars, in addition to enhanced shelving and storage options. The residence, grounds and carriage house offer the prospective purchaser an uncommon opportunity to own an historic property rich with character without sacrificing the modern conveniences and comforts.
