Just WOW!! Exquisite, 3-level Mediterranean style villa with Spectacular River views of the Potomac.

Enjoying a private and elevated hillside position, 7608 Southdown Rd reflects the gracious ambiance of French architecture with its soaring ceilings, 2-story foyer, 3 Juliette balconies, Saltillo tile floors, stone fireplaces, an abundance of arched windows and doors, meticulously tended terraced gardens with side patio and wine cellar!
This custom-built 3 Bed, 4.5 Bath home not only offers luxurious family living space, but a home that makes entertaining a true joy. Main level offers a 2-story foyer with its majestic ceiling and a sweeping curved staircase. The Library, Grand Salon/Living Room, Formal Dining Room, Kitchen/Family Gathering Room (with casual dining area) all have direct access from this floor to stunning views from the expansive stone 64 'x 14’ river terrace balcony. The 3 Upper-level bedrooms also face onto the glorious river view. The spacious primary bedroom suite has a huge walk-in closet, large double vanity bathroom with separate tub and enclosed luxury size glass shower. Bedrooms 2 & 3 come with triple closets, and ensuite bathrooms with separate showers & large tubs.
The lower mezzanine level has been totally transformed with the addition of a fully finished banquet room for up to 22 diners, a caterer's kitchen and dedicated temperature controlled wine cellar (2 wine coolers convey, sadly the wine does not)! One more level down takes you to a huge 27' x 23' light filled family/office/ bonus room with cavernous closet space. Currently used as an office/additional guest bedroom. This floor also offers a full bath, laundry room, and very large storage room with access to a heated/cooled 2-car garage, (note total of 8 parking spaces available). The Mount Vernon trail & bike path is outside your doorstep which is protected land as part of the National Park Service. Old Town Alexandria is less than a 4 mile hop away from your Tuscany idyll! Don't let this opportunity pass you by!
