In today’s increasingly congested, fast-paced world, finding a peaceful retreat is becoming ever more challenging. Elsworth Falls is a special place as it offers the duality of an escape reinforced by an incredible opportunity. Encompassing over 21 picturesque green acres amidst revered Great Falls, the estate provides the perfect blend of space, convenience and is a sound investment. The development potential to create one of the Capital Region’s finest residential communities is immense. The entire expanse affords privacy foliage ideally situated amongst an oasis of scenic views. Subtly nestled behind the legendary L’Auberge Chez Francois, Elsworth Falls is introduced by an elegantly sweeping driveway that cascades around soaring mature trees — a scene straight out of a country magazine. The residence, with its classic red tin roof, manages to embody warmth which can only be afforded by a classic, East Coast Cape Cods while capturing a Modern Farmhouse design. Inside, the same blend of charm and comfortable domestic living continues, from the inviting oak floors contrasted with dark stair railings in the main foyer, to the transverse gallery framed with thick moldings and establishing perfect symmetry in the center of the home. The ethereal main living area is the centerpiece of the residence, with its cozy gas fireplace, coffered ceiling, and open concept living/dining areas fit for any banquet. A set of French doors lets the outside in, and large picture windows bring in ample natural light and views of the expansive rear lawn. The chef’s kitchen features an oversized center island, premium inset cabinetry, and a full Sub-Zero / Wolf appliance suite. Completing the main level is an inviting owner’s suite complete with private outdoor access and a sumptuous marble bath boasting dual vanities and a separate freestanding claw-foot tub. Upstairs, the guest bedroom suites are ample in scale and served by two large bathrooms. Outside is where the magic truly begins. Stepping down from the separate carriage house reveals a spectacular pool area shrouded in tranquility and framed by an elegant pergola. The pool, classic in proportions, is perfectly situated so that one can enjoy the most magnificent sunsets. Elsewhere on the property, expansive unobstructed grassy vistas are elegantly juxtaposed with intimate, shaded seating areas framed by sculpted bushes. The blend of acreage and location is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and like fine works of art, it is amongst the dwindling luxuries in our increasingly fast-paced world. Elsworth Falls is truly an enchanting oasis in the countryside of Great Falls, Virginia. "Coming home is one of the most beautiful things." - Andre Rieu.
