Potomac Ranch is a hidden gem. Tucked away near Great Falls Park between Oaklyn and Brickyard. Its rolling hills are dotted with grand estates set far back from the street. Centralized within this private oasis on the tree-lined Alloway Drive is this classic Georgian colonial reimagined by Kent Construction & Development. Substantial brick pillars frame intricate wrought-iron gates, which automatically glide open to reveal a gravel driveway providing an elegant approach to the traditionally symmetrical facade capped by a brand new roof. Immediately apparent are the new double-pane, double-hung energy-efficient windows, the black trim injects a modern flair into an otherwise familiar exterior. Double solid wood front doors part ways, revealing a spectacular foyer whose double staircase is a functional work of art. Extensive moldings contrasted with dark-stained railings represents the traditional/contemporary blend of styles which has gone into the home, while wide-plank hickory wood floors underfoot carry throughout. The generously proportioned formal living room, with its marble fireplace and extensive dental and picture frame molding, is a masterclass in contemporary, old-world charm, while the formal dining room, mirrored across the center hall, represents a similar blend with five-piece chair rail contrasting modern fixtures. The cherry-lined library has been painted a contemporary battleship gray, injecting a fresh flair into its walls of custom built-ins. The main level's centerpiece is a luxurious chef’s kitchen replete with marble countertops imported from Italy, an unbroken book-matched marble backsplash, contrasting a dark-stained center island, and commercial-grade appliances. Off the kitchen is a family room whose focal point is a stunning chevron marble fireplace, located adjacent to a sunroom spanning nearly the entire width of the home, are arched windows overlooking the rear lawn, and the natural oasis beyond. A covered porch and well-thought-out mudroom with full bath and laundry facilities complete the main level. The grand staircase leads to four bedroom suites. The primary suite occupies its own wing of the home, boasting twin custom walk-in dressing rooms leading to a stunning bianco puro and mother-of-pearl marble bath with an oversized shower, freestanding tub, and twin vanities. Three additional bedrooms each boast their own stylish tiled baths and walk-in closets, while one of them offers the flexibility of serving as a bonus room. Secondary laundry facilities upstairs provide an essential convenience. The lower level is an entertainer’s delight, filled with amenities and sitting above grade to facilitate indoor/outdoor living. A large recreation room anchors the space, flowing seamlessly into a game room lined with contemporary built-in shelving. In the home theatre, the 85-inch TV with a built-in surround-sound system conveys with the offering. An adjacent wine room boasts abundant storage, ample tasting space, and a backlit feature wall. A sixth bedroom suite and private fitness studio, each with its own full bath clad in intricate tilework, rounds off the lower level. The grounds of the home are arguably its most significant highlight. A full-width covered patio conceals a fully-equipped marble-topped outdoor kitchen as well as the entrances to an outdoor storage space and the pool room complete with locker rooms and shower. Stepping down reveals a stunning 60-foot lap pool with an automatic cover and attached hot tub, framed by an outdoor fireplace just beyond. Two acres of fenced-in space means total privacy, further augmented by soaring mature trees surrounding the property, while an irrigation system keeps everything lush. Kent Construction & Development’s improvements go beyond skin deep: new HVAC, electronic security system complete with security cameras throughout, landscaping, water heater, garage door motors, and central vacuum systems add convenience and livability.
