As you drive into the secluded Wynhurst enclave of 23 custom homes, all on 2ac lots, you will know you have arrived. Every home is different, but 1414 Wynhurst is unique. It is the largest estate at well over 10,000 square feet, and hilltop sited. It is the Wynhurst Chateau. The impressive size and width, especially the stone and stucco facade and the many Palladian and bay windows, reinforce the timeless, elegant and classic exterior ambience. The interior light and airy openness, high ceilings and exceptional lines of sight provide a dramatic impression. The views are beautiful and expansive sights exist from every room, whether viewing the valley below and the Tysons skyline on the opposite ridge. Or, admiring the ever changing landscaping, including spring Azaleas and cherry blossoms, summer Crepe Myrtles and large oak foliage, fall Bradford Pears and burning bushes, and even winters red Nandina and evergreen azaleas and boxwoods. If security and child safety are important for your family, as well as walkability and privacy, but, you need to reside near Tysons, the Dulles Corridor, the Dulles Airport and/or Metro, then Wynhurst is a top choice for you. Consider security and child safety, Wynhurst is secluded, limited access/no through traffic, consider walkability, Wynhurst straddles the Difficult Run Cross County Trail, where you can walk, bike or hike from the Potomac to Mt. Vernon, 40 miles!! Lastly, consider privacy! Wynhurst has huge lots, but the Chateau at 1414 is particularly private. Have you seen the totally private pool? At about 45 x 20, it is conveniently located down a ramp from the 1.600 sq. ft. main level deck and surrounded by 6.5ft high wooden fence and mature evergreens. It is serviced by an in house kitchen and large bath/changing room in the walkout lower level. For outdoor entertainment, pool and deck will support parties of 100 or more. 2 imported sconces, console tables, and exterior gates (2) and railings, a 50 yr. roof, large casement vs. double hung windows, MN-level insulation, hurricane straps on roof structure, 3 x 13 wide asphalt driveway, a 1,600 sq. ft. composite deck, 8x8 fence posts with 150lb cement footers vs. typical 4 or 6 posts, 7ft vinyl-coated chain link deer fencing around entire property. There is another acre of land which could be converted from forest to play houses/equipment, and other athletic or gardening pursuits. Consider even an impressive water effect above the pool or back deck. Finally, a grand entry and almost 500 ft. of stone walls befitting a chateau, and of course, the pool. The Wynhurst Chateau was designed to provide many special use spaces, including for example, an ample gourmet kitchen and dining area for large or multi generational family meals, indoor formal dining (10-12 in Dining Room) or banquet-sized (20-40) is possible if foyer and sun room are used as well. Not only a main level study, but a 1,000 sq. ft. third-level area which could accommodate two secluded offices with a filing closet. Six bedrooms, though the third level could be converted to a dormitory for young adults living at home adding two more bedrooms (8 possible), or level three could be a totally separate living area, Master Suite with huge closet room and another attached room (both 16 x 22), which is presently used as an exercise room with views instead of the typical basement setting, but could be an office or nursery as well, huge finished basement for indoor entertaining, and extra bedroom or exercise room with kitchen/bath and walkout, gated access to the street. Perhaps a separate, ground level living quarter. Whether you have in mind an heirloom homestead, or just need an impressive, prestigious residence, you have found it.
