Every once in a while, a rare opportunity presents itself. The famous Birchland Estate has been completely reprised and awaits its next stewards! Sited on one of the highest points in Arlington, this property will amaze you with stunning rooftop views and envelop you in its private tree canopy. With one foot rooted in the past & another in a complete renovation & expansion, this home is a perfect blend of living history & unparalleled luxury. Dating to before the Civil War, the property has changed hands just a few times since its land grant from Lord Fairfax in the 1720s. Due to its location & elevation, in 1861 the original mansion became the headquarters of Civil War General Winfield Hancock, and home to the "Spy Tree", a significant sentry post protecting Washington DC. The large oak in the front yard is a sapling, continuing the arbor legacy dating back to 1606. In the late 19th century, the home was rebuilt & expanded (including the use of reclaimed materials from President McKinley's inauguration stand (c1897)). Beginning in 2022, the residence began a meticulous renovation & expansion, resulting in a perfectly curated masterpiece. Preservation was an important focus and visitors will notice natural elements including the exposed hand-hewn timbers repurposed from President McKinley's 1897 inauguration structure. The heart of pine floors come from 19th century studs, beams & rafters deconstructed from the original kitchen structure and carefully milled and transformed into beautiful flooring. Elegant light fixtures & door hardware are curated throughout the home to celebrate the grace of a post-Civil War Mansion. A custom spiral staircase has been meticulously constructed and the Living Room features a barn-style sliding paneled door. The original wood burning fireplace & mantle have been restored. Glass paneled doors lead into a Main Level Bedroom Suite or Executive Study, with full bath & private patio entrance. Three traditional archways frame the main hall. The Dining Room is suited for grand entertaining. The Mudroom boasts inset cabinets, cubbies, a Powder Room, and side entrance, across from a perfectly curated "Scullery", (a gorgeous second catering kitchen w/ modern amenities, stainless appliances & service windows to the patio). The new wing of the home is breathtaking with beautiful light fixtures, white-oak flooring and large windows. The chefs Kitchen provides Wolf & Subzero, Marble counters, inset custom cabinetry, and a farmhouse sink imported from Shaws of England. There is a charming Breakfast Nook w/ a built-in bench. The adjoining Family Room features a coffered ceiling & charming stone gas fireplace, and opens to the courtyard. Three beautiful bedrooms upstairs each have a private Bathroom and a walk-in closet. The upper level also opens to a tree-level balcony. The upstairs laundry Room is spacious & sunny with an old English drying rack, inset cabinetry, LG machines, a Villery & Boch farmhouse sink & balcony access. A beautiful Primary Suite offers a vaulted ceiling, linear gas fireplace and Walk-in closets w/built-ins. A striking Marble Bath boasts a European style bidet & glass enclosed steam-shower. The fourth level loft has stunning natural light, vaulted ceilings, Full Bath, and enormous sliders that open to a large roof-top entertaining area with Ipe deck & stone accents & covered outdoor Wet Bar. This level can be used as a Bedroom suite, Office, Family Room or Studio. Whether it's a sunny day or beautiful sunset, the private rooftop terrace will inspire you! The lowest level offers a charming Whiskey Bar, full of character, ready for a quiet beverage and intimate conversation. The flat 1/2 acre double-lot is yours to enjoy, or add to your estate with a pool, 3-car garage & guest quarters (plans convey), or sit back, look out over the beautiful property & large lawn and enjoy. Plan a tour of this iconic home. Welcome to The Birchland Estate!
