Bradley Hills Grove is unquestionably one of the finest residential communities in the country, its rolling hills dotted with some of the finest estates in the Capital Region. Within this pocket of prestige, perched high above the street on one and a half wooded acres, 8814 Chalon Drive belongs to a class of distinguished residences rarely available on the market. Upon ascending the driveway through lighted entry pillars, one is greeted by a striking yellow stucco facade adorned with wrought iron balconies, arched windows and contrasting quoins â€” elements borrowed from classic European architecture. Stepping into the soaring marble reception area, light emanates from windows above while the rear lawn can be seen through double glass doors. Over 10,800 square feet of immaculate living space is introduced, with all major rooms flowing effortlessly from the foyer, such as the embassy-sized formal living room which spans the entire depth of the home and boasts a wood burning fireplace adjacent to double doors accessing the outdoors. Likewise, the formal dining room is banquet-sized, featuring its own fireplace enhancing the minimalist, tasteful ambiance. The chefâ€™s kitchen ought to be any home cookâ€™s dream, with commercial-grade appliances nestled in cream colored, furniture-grade cabinets. Stunning limestone floors laid out in a Versailles pattern tie everything together, while the family room with wood burning fireplace provides an elegantly intimate informal gathering space. Completing the main level are a large office space lined with custom mahogany built-ins featuring its own fireplace and wet bar, as well as a gracious solarium. Ascending the spiral staircase reveals an ethereal upper level sitting area with built-in bookcases. The ownerâ€™s retreat features a private balcony seemingly floating in the woods, while an oversized walk-in closet and spa-inspired bath with separate vanities as well as a jacuzzi tub makes it a true oasis. Four additional bedrooms on the upper level â€” two ensuite with walk-in closets and two sharing a jack-and-jill bath, offer spacious, ample accommodation. At the base of the grand staircase, the lower level boasts soaring ceiling heights and is an entertainerâ€™s dream with a separate bar and wine cellar. A private fitness center is also found on this level. Out back, the limestone patio serves as the basis of an extensive hardscaping package complementing the full and lush landscaping. An incredible lap pool serves as the centerpiece of the homeâ€™s outdoor areas, its infinity edge extending into the treeline. Quality and attention to detail are evident in every square inch of the residence, from the synthetic slate roof to a thoughtfully-designed build out space for an elevator. The location is unparalleled, mere minutes from The Beltway, Downtown Bethesda, Northern Virginia, and the city. Blending convenience with an extensive list of amenities, not to mention sited on one of the largest lots in one of the finest residential neighborhoods in the nation, 8814 Chalon Drive is a truly special home through and through.
