Nestled in the heart of Falls Church, VA, at 3059 Cedarwood Lane, this breathtaking colonial-style estate stands as a testament to nearly eight decades of one family's dedication and love. Originally built in 1933 on a generous .69 acre lot, the property has undergone a meticulous transformation, inspired by the owner's admiration for the architectural beauty found in Colonial Williamsburg, New England, and the English countryside. The result is an award-winning, magazine-featured home that perfectly marries quintessential colonial charm with modern luxury and comfort. As you step inside, you're welcomed by the enduring beauty of heart pine flooring ranging from 6-9 inches in the sunroom and office, setting the tone for the craftsmanship and attention to detail that defines this home. Spanning over 3300 sqft of finished living space across three levels, the estate features three bedrooms, three and a half baths, and a two-car tandem garage with a loft above, offering potential for additional living space. The interior boasts an array of handcrafted details, including bespoke front and rear doors, intricate moldings, chair railings, and marble floors in the foyer, kitchen, and baths. The den and dining room are adorned with handmade wooden carvings, while the living and dining rooms are brought together by a double-sided gas fireplace with a custom-carved marble mantel. Another fireplace, with a marble face and wood surround, adds warmth to the den for a total of 3 fireplaces. The exterior of the home and its surrounding gardens are equally captivating, highlighted by handmade copper lanterns, 15 skylights, custom windows, and a garage door that complements the property's colonial inspiration. The brick driveway, laid in a classic fish-scale pattern, and the stone apron around the home echo the craftsmanship of a bygone era. The gardens, a lush retreat of conifers, topiary boxwoods, azaleas, and mature trees, feature whimsical statues, a waterfall, and an irrigation system, ensuring their beauty year-round. The home's colonial essence is further embodied in the Chippendale-designed railing and onion-top posts on the front porch, stone chimneys, and copper gutters. Modern comforts are seamlessly integrated throughout the home, ensuring a luxurious living experience. The primary bathroom offers a double jacuzzi and steam shower, while the kitchen is equipped with a Subzero refrigerator, Whirlpool dishwasher, and GE Microwave. The addition of an instant hot water heater, skylights, and a comprehensive irrigation system further enhance the home's functionality and appeal. Recent updates, including a concrete shingle roof (1988), furnace and A/C (2018), hot water heater (2018), upstairs heat pump (2021), and a second-floor laundry with a new washer/dryer (Dec. 2022), underscore the home's blend of historical charm and modern reliability. These enhancements, coupled with the property's rich history and distinctive character, have earned it prestigious accolades and features in renowned publications. 3059 Cedarwood Lane is more than a home; it is a piece of Falls Church's heritage, reimagined for contemporary living.
