Hidden away along a private drive, in one of the most highly desirable locations in Alexandria, sits this stone chalet with uncompromising quality. Comprised of only the finest materials and masterful craftsmanship that is rarely found in today's construction. The pitched gable roof, exposed rafters and rich stone details conger up images of the European Alps. Expansive windows and back porches offer inspiring views and large areas for entertainment. The original owners have cherished this home since its inception and have meticulously maintained it. In fact, when they sold the home in 2004, they missed it so much they purchased it back 10 years later! The sprawling layout is perfect for those seeking one level living or families and multigenerational living. The great room with 18 ft ceilings is flooded with natural light. The large patios are perfect for all sized gatherings. Enter into the foyer with an adjacent living room or additional office with idyllic Potomac River views. Steps away is a grand paneled library with custom bookcases and one of 4 fireplaces. The great room is where everyone wants to gather with its random heart pine floors and rustic stone fireplace. Three sets of french doors open to the stone patio and pond. The recently renovated kitchen will impress any cook with its Viking and Subzero appliances, island seating and breakfast room. The adjacent laundry room has a wrapping station plus room for all your gardening supplies and hobbies. The spacious main level primary bedroom suite offers a family room with fireplace and 3 large closets. The upper level also offers 2 spacious bedrooms and 2 baths. The lower level has a large 2 bedroom guest apartment with full bath, kitchenette, bar, family room w/ fireplace plus a separate exit. In addition the lower level also offers a wine tasting room with original doors from Saint Mary's convent, theater area, game room plus a massive storage room. The elevator goes to all 3 levels.
