Welcome to the stunning estate of former Washington Redskins tight end, Chris Cooley. This 13,054-square-foot mansion was built in 2004 and sits on 3.67 beautifully landscaped acres. This home was the first home built on the block. While the neighborhood boasts large homes, none are as big as this modernized French manor. As you enter the home, a curved staircase with wrought iron balusters rises to the second floor in the two-story marble foyer. A stunning, 20-light chandelier hangs from the vaulted ceiling. The foyer opens to the Great Room (to the right- for entertaining or another formal living room) and the oversized formal dining room (to the left). The kitchen is ideally suited for entertaining. There are two Miele dishwashers, a dual fuel range with six burners and a char-broiler, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, an in-wall coffee system, a beverage drawer in the island. The entire kitchen boasts custom floor tile covering and has a separate walk-in pantry. The kitchen, with a breakfast bar and informal dining space, flanks a large living room with recessed lighting, a fireplace, and French doors that open to the balcony deck. Beside the living room, you will find the formal office and library, that too opens to the balcony deck overlooking the pool. There are five large bedrooms on the upper level (all 12' x 12'+), each with their own private bathroom and walk-in closet. The Master Suite features an expansive dressing room with a large granite counter top island and custom built-in armoire cabinets. The sitting area of the master suite has a cozy, two-sided fireplace. The master bathroom features his and hers vanities and commodes, a marble-wall shower and large soaking tub. Across from the bedrooms is the laundry room (which can second as a study), with plenty of storage, sink, and an island for laundry ease. This room has a set of two high-end Miele washer-dryer combos. Cooley previously used the lower level au-pair suite as his ceramic's studio, but it has since been converted into a large bedroom with living space. This room walks-out to a covered patio beside the pool. Aside from this space, the remainder of the lower level is ideal for entertaining. The game and entertainment room boasts one of the homes three fireplaces, a full kitchen, and walks-out to the covered patio and pool deck. Just around the corner you will find the wine tasting room with adjacent wine cellar. The wine cellar has beautiful wood doors, wrought iron gates (with a lock), and stunning stone masonry. Adjacent to the wine tasting room is the homes oversized movie theater or media room (perfect for reviewing game footage or watching the Super Bowl). The 750-square foot heated pool has a vanishing infinity edge with a waterfall. The circular spa and cedar pergola with beverage bar are at the pool's left, and ideal for entertaining and outdoor events. There is even an 80-square foot natural look sand beach with fire pit. Over 100 low-voltage lighting fixtures illuminate the deck, stairs, trees, and house. The entire backyard is fenced in. Just beyond the fence is a tremendous amount of green space, within the property line, that backs to trees. This estate has a heated 4-car garage with brand new custom doors and motors, installed August 2020. All four of the homes fully functioning HVAC units were inspected and serviced in August of 2020. The septic field and system were inspected and improved upon in August of 2020. A full licensed inspection was completed on the property in late July 2020. As you tour the home, keep in mind many of the works of art on the walls were done by Cooley, a former art major.
