    Description

    Gorgeous Estate on 5+ acres in "the Great Falls of southern Fairfax County". Graceful and private, Cathedral Forest is a secluded, serene neighborhood in Fairfax Station. Driving past the entrance, mature trees reach for the sky and create a ceiling overhead like an old growth forest. Towering above many layers of canopy, they protect a thriving ecosystem and create an oasis in the middle of urban and suburban life. Motoring on the scenic byways and backroads through rolling hills, woods, and fields dotted with farms and estates feels like an escape to a rural retreat. Wildlife is abundant and thriving here. Nestled into this majestic forest, a classic crimson brick Colonial rests on a wide, green lawn surrounded by trees on all sides for 365 degrees of privacy. A long curved driveway leads to an immaculate example of period architecture that is custom built to last. Enormous arched Palladian windows with graceful curving mullions let light pour in and offer a captivating view of forest from every room. Perfectly executed custom carpentry is abundant throughout, starting in the entry with gracious curving staircase and two story ceiling. Stunning crown moulding, high ceilings, custom trim work, chair rail, and wainscoting punctuate substantial and spacious rooms with fine wood floors. Flanking the elegant foyer, the formal dining room has built in corner cabinets, and formal living room has French doors leading to a huge office. Work from home? Enjoy a quiet space with a fireplace, custom built mantle, built in bookshelves and privacy. Beyond the formal rooms, open living space includes large family room with fireplace. The dining area, serving and bar area have custom cherry cabinets and granite, as does the gourmet kitchen with island, breakfast bar, and butlers pantry. Large sun room has french doors to deck and the outside. Huge owners suite with private bath, large walk in closet and chic dressing room. Huge laundry room upstairs. Lots of people at home? Numerous living space options include an upper level second suite with bed and bath AND nearly 2000 square feet of finished lower level. Apartment-like living for an au pair, housekeeper, mother in law, college student, extended family, homeschooling. Large kitchen and dining area opens to living room with third fireplace, entry/mudroom/sitting area, separate media room/office with bedroom and fourth bath. An amazing property, cushioned by many thousands of acres of parkland surrounding this beautiful pocket of land whose southern border is the Occoquan River. Do you love the water? The river, waterfront, marinas, boat slips, boating , fishing, rowing and river life are minutes away. Get ready for walking, hiking, running, biking, mountain biking, horseback riding, cycling, because there are miles and miles of trails in our amazing parks. Any sport you can think of is minutes away. Private and public driving ranges and golf courses, stables and horseback riding lessons, archery, fantastic game fields that are impeccably maintained.
