Standing amongst the Capital Region's great estates, 7610 Fairfax Road is a poster child for classically elegant east coast living in one of the nation's most sought after communities. Sited on one of Edgemoor's largest lots behind nostalgic white picket fences, this home is the quintessential old world colonial radiating a storied charm presented in a fully restored, renovated modern package, located just a stone's throw to vibrant downtown Bethesda. One of five original Edgemoor homes constructed during the dawn of a golden era in American history, the estate is architecturally significant with original millwork, mantles, and period details. A gracious crescent-shaped driveway affords an elegant approach and effortless curb appeal. A wraparound covered porch dominates the ideally-proportioned facade, topped by a recently installed slate roof, reminiscent of the homes showcased in old Hollywood films. Likewise, the arched entryway opens into a traditional reception area, with the grand staircase lining the perimeter of the foyer. Gleaming dark-stained Heart Pine floors are a metaphor for the rest of the home, as they set a timelessly luxurious tone with a contemporary flair. Formal rooms harken back to a bygone era of lavish entertaining and are proportioned accordingly, such as the living room with six sets of French doors opening onto the rear gardens. The dining room is equally elegant, its walls of windows and accent lighting curating an exacting atmosphere for evening festivities. Meanwhile, the library's rich paneling and roaring fireplace offer a serene retreat. In the informal wing, the chef's kitchen is a stunning showcase. Cascade marble floors, stacked inset cabinetry, thick-edge stone countertops, and a suite of Wolf, SubZero, and Viking appliances each represent the pinnacle in culinary facilities. An adjacent ethereal breakfast nook and family room with wall of windows separated by pocket doors completes the space. An enclosed breezeway directly accesses the garage. The primary suite is nestled in a private wing on the upper level. It boasts a sumptuous marble bath with separate vanities and a large jetted tub, as well as a commodious dressing room befitting a home of such caliber. Two secondary bedrooms are ample in scale and each feature modern ensuite baths with dual vanities in addition to walk-in closets. A convenient laundry room is also located on this level. The top level is a true multipurpose space. Two additional large bedroom suites can serve as teenager or au pair accommodation, a fitness center, media room, or private office, offering endless flexibility. Furthermore, a cathedral, beam-ceilinged loft above the detached garage makes an ideal recreation space. A den and sixth bedroom suite are tucked away on the lower level. The stunning, level, acre lot is truly showcased in the rear of the home. A spectacular double-height portico framed by Gone with the Wind' columns is adjacent to the newly-constructed heated pool, where the wraparound porch also offers refuge from intense summer sunlight. An al fresco dining area, fire pit, and outdoor barbecue enables entertaining on a grand scale, while extensive hardscaping, verdant foliage, and extensive fencing creates a totally private, tranquil oasis. Historically significant, spectacularly designed, thoughtfully modernized, and meticulously crafted, 7610 Fairfax Road lies at the intersection of past and present but will undoubtedly remain timeless far into the future.
