Potomac Creek Cove is an inspirational and nature-infused masterpiece – truly stunning in location and design! The retreat-like setting envelops you in nature the moment you arrive.
Located on 12 acres in both a waterfront and equestrian community, it has stunning water views of Potomac Creek, a tidal offshoot of the Potomac River. Located in the Washington, DC metro area, the home is just a 10-minute drive to commuter trains to DC and a 15-minute drive to Fredericksburg's historic district. The area is chock-full of restaurants, boutique shopping, and tourist attractions.
Potomac Creek Cove overlooks the 3,000-plus acre Crow’s Nest Natural Area Preserve, which is loaded with hiking and adventure opportunities galore. This area will never be developed, equating to a lifetime of tranquility and nature exploring opportunities aplenty. In the heart of a migratory bird path, you may be dazzled by feathered visitors like arctic snow geese or white pelicans -- and the bald eagles are permanent residents.
The home – spanning over 6,000 square feet on its four levels - was designed by celebrated architect Sabina Weitzman and custom built by Stonehaven Homes. Only the finest of materials were used in construction. The focal point of the home is its stunning water and nature views on all four levels. In fact, every room naturally flows with nature – with select curves and cornered windows that make the water views pop that much more.
Among the exterior highlights are Hardiplank siding and 900 square feet of porch and deck space, including two outdoor rooms with fireplaces, a sitting area, and outdoor covered dining room. All 6 bathrooms are luxuriously appointed with natural marble and stone hand selected by the owners. The immaculately landscaped grounds have native plants and a firepit near the water for conversation, star gazing, and sometimes s’mores.
Heading inside, every square foot is tastefully designed and optimized for both everyday living and unforgettable gatherings. The current owners noted, “This was an incredible place to raise a family, it was the house for prom pictures and sleepovers, for special gatherings of friends, family, and community events.” There are three interior fireplaces, ceiling fans, and extra thick, insulated walls for extra energy efficiency. Custom-milled, red elm and travertine stone flooring abound on the main level, with a two-story, window-clad great room anchored by a wood-burning Rumford fireplace enclosed in a tower of captivating stonework. The gourmet kitchen is a chef’s dream with cherry cabinetry, Thermador stove and oven, granite countertops.
On the bedroom front, more stunning water views anyone? The master bedroom – which in the Spring is enveloped in mature Yoshino cherry trees just outside – has a private sitting area, his-and-her closets, ensuite bathroom with heated floors, soaking tub, and a walk-in shower. Upstairs, don’t forget to journey up to and relax or read in the fourth-floor tower (really, does it get any better than this?). In fact, all of the six bedrooms and rooms in this estate masterpiece are special and stunning. The finished walkout basement can very easily be a rented apartment or in-law suite. There is an outdoor room just off the basement with its own wood-burning fireplace, too.
Asked what the current owners will miss and they hope the new owners will relish, they responded: “Coffee in the morning watching the mist rise over Potomac Creek, hopping on our sailboat knowing you could go anywhere in the world, seeing bald eagles frolic above, and sitting by a fire outside in the cool autumn breeze.”
