This expansive custom mid-century modern home set on a stunning 1.23 acre wooded lot features a post-and-beam design with soaring tongue-and-groove ceilings, exposed beams and walls of glass. The 1970 home was built by noted local builder Stephen A. Mittleman for an IBM executive. It just hit the market and I will be holding an Open House this Sunday from 1-4 pm. You can see all the photos and the full listing here. (Photos by Tod Connell.)
The sprawling, California-style two-level home has 5 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms over nearly 3,000 sq. ft., and was designed to blend inside and out and to take advantage of the park-like setting. The house, set deep on the lot away from the quiet cul-de-sac street, features walls of glass and large sliding glass doors that allow access to the deck off the main-level living room and patio in the fully fenced backyard.
The house is approached via a stately, private looping driveway that includes a separate two-car garage that mirrors the architecture of the house. The new garage door can be opened via a smart phone app.
The large entrance foyer with coat nook separates the public spaces on the right of the house from the 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, including updated master bath, on the left side of the main level. All the bedrooms have expansive glass with updated cordless shades.
The large, open kitchen-dining area features soaring wood-beamed ceilings, extensive storage and counter space and new lighting. The living room, with original wood floors, is centered by a prominent wall-to-ceiling brick fireplace and sliders opening to the deck overlooking the expansive backyard.
The lower level includes a large family room with double-sided fireplace, bar area with built in bookshelves, two bedrooms, a full bath with vintage mid-century vanity as well as a spacious laundry room.
While the home is a perfect private retreat it is located just minutes away from Reston Town Center, the Dulles Toll Road, Dulles Airport and the Silver Line Metro. It is located in the Hunters Woods Magnet Elementary School district.
