Presiding over the cul de sac at the end of Carson Place is a timeless Virginian estate. Stately, solid brick punctuated by soaring white columns, 4004 Carson Place is as pretty as a picture and as gracious as a Southern hostess, with thoughtfully architected rooms to accommodate a family~s every need. Built in 1968 by a prominent local doctor, the home proudly preserves the doctor~s original office and pharmacy on its lower level. The home~s main level is a beautiful study in contrasts: rich, honey brown wooden floors, and airy 9-foot ceilings with stately 6-inch moldings. Lush lounging areas that beckon to guests, and doors that open to reveal jewel box-like private rooms. The living room impresses with its sandstone mantle and granite fireplace. Open a discreet door in the living room to reveal the home~s Nantucket room. Built-in shelves house collections of books and finery; a fireplace warms the room in cold seasons to make it useful year-round. In warmer weather, open the rear door to access the grounds and pool. The dining room~s immediate location off the foyer keeps entertaining centralized. Unquestionably, the gold and glass chandelier is the star of the room. Pocket doors slide to reveal an informal family room with built-ins for books and media. Pass-throughs in the family and dining rooms offer access to the sunny kitchen. In the private upstairs space are four total bedrooms, three of which offer en-suite bathrooms. The spacious master suite, built with two custom walk-in closets, bath with steam shower and a large balcony that runs the length of the bedroom. The balcony extends your living space with room enough for lounge chairs, caf~ table and even a fire pit for your romantic evenings in. Additional bedrooms available over the garage and in pool house. A large, flat lot in Seminary Ridge is a rare find. At 4004 Carson Place, you~ll measure the lot by its acreage -- but also by its incredible design. The brick patio is divided into open and covered spaces, and its undulating scalloped edges are bordered by sturdy shrubbery. Beyond the patio abutting the house, you can luxuriate in the elegant entertaining space that encircles the pool. In a nod to the home~s 1960s origin, the pool features a pool house with two de rigueur changing rooms that open onto the patio, and within are two bedrooms, a full bathroom and vintage kitchenette.Carson Place is a true destination in the coveted Seminary Ridge neighborhood. Over half an acre of landscaped grounds enclosed by fencing and overlooking a rear tree line makes this estate a private escape from Washington, DC. Access to the city, major roadways, parks, schools and shopping centers are within a few minutes~ drive. **Please review floors plans in photos to see how the home is laid out and for room measurements.**
