Fantastic location, stunning property! 9211 Forest Haven Drive is a beautifully appointed home situated on a gorgeous .6 acre corner lot in Alexandria. This classically elegant 3596 square foot, 5 bedroom, 3 bath home sits on one of George Washington's original farms. Long views, mature trees, and a serene, forested setting offer a calm, beautiful and private retreat. The backyard, with its screened-in porch, covered BBQ area, custom 25,000 gallon gunite pool, and privacy-oriented landscaping creates a resort-like feel for morning coffee or evening dinner parties. Recent owners have invested over $600,000.00 in upgrades and additions, with meticulous attention to detail, and the home has been impeccably maintained. Interior features include: Kitchen with top-of-the-line, like-new custom cabinets, sub-zero matching refrigerator, Kitchen-Aid double-electric ovens, unique high-end granite countertops and backsplash, glass cabinet lighting, warming drawer, center island with new natural gas cooktop and retractable exhaust fan. Main floor boasts two fireplaces (one gas and one wood burning), bedroom/den, full bath and a super cool library addition with French doors which lead out to a private porch. Upper floor has four bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The owner's bedroom has an extremely large walk-in closet with custom built-ins. Long cedar closets run the length of one upstairs hallway. Addition over the garage has a separate entrance and is perfect for extended stay guests, in-laws, or grown children. Custom art lighting, ceiling fans, window and wall treatments , wood plantation shutters, custom bathroom tile, crown molding and new paint throughout. Hardware floors refinished in 2017, with luxury silk/wool carpet runners. The 25,000 gallon custom gunite pool has underwater lighting, a new multi-speed pump and Polaris automatic vacuum. New, high-efficiency pool heater has reduced heating costs by 80%. All pool tile and systems have been recently renovated and upgraded. The front and back yards have landscape lighting and a 10 zone automatic, programmable sprinkler system. Elegantly appointed screen porch has custom slate floor design (which matches the other porches), fabric sun shades, skylights, ceiling fan, a beadboard ceiling and custom lighting that creates beautiful nighttime ambiance. What really makes this house special, however, is that the infrastructure has been just as meticulously updated and maintained as the interior features and finishes. Main house heating systems have been updated and modernized to reduce energy costs by 2/3. Over $30,000 invested in extensive drainage systems in the house and yard to create a dry, worry-free environment. Even during storms and power outages, an automatic whole-house generator keeps the house safe, lit, warm and dry. 9211 Forest Haven Drive is loaded with character and charm but is still stately, functional and efficient. Must see in person to fully appreciate the beauty and setting, as well as the value of all the interior finishes, extras, and infrastructure upgrades! Please do not miss the opportunity to see this exceptional home. And there is so much more! The Mount Vernon hike/bike Trail, through almost 18 miles of national parkland along the George Washington Parkway and the Potomac River, starts at the end of the block and extends all the way to Washington D.C., with numerous picnic areas and parks along the way, including George Washington's Mt. Vernon, and the Mt. Vernon Inn and Restaurant. Old Town Alexandria and the Huntington Metro are an easy 12-minute drive. Grist Mill Park, which is within walking distance, provides 75 plus acres of playing fields, gardens, off-leash dog park, playgrounds and trails. The Mt. Vernon Yacht Club, the Mansion House Swim and Tennis Club, and the Mt. Vernon Country Club are within easy walking/riding distance. A great place to live, work, and play!
