The Interior Breakfast

Home of the Week: 43400 Blantyre Court, Ashburn | Entertainment

This 5-bedroom, 4.5-bath home in the Belmont Country Club offers ample parking with a three-car garage and driveway, and guests can take in an elegant vista from its backyard with a swimming pool, white pergola and a stone-lined outdoor fireplace and patio that overlook a pond just past the home’s white picket fence.

Realtor Joy Muczko of Platinum Realty Group, said the home is gorgeous and praised its “hardscapes with detailed stone retaining walls, beautiful [outdoor] fireplace,” and said “it was all designed for fabulous entertaining for friends and family.”

The 6,611 square foot home is listed for $1.64 million.

One of the home’s most distinctive features is a home theatre in its freshly-renovated basement featuring red leather reclining chairs, ambient cinema lighting, and a screen onto which family members and guests can project films behind a pair of red curtains.

The front of the home is covered with a red brick façade accented by white keystones directly above the center of its front-facing windows. Light gray shingles line the roof, while a beige vinyl siding wraps around the side of the home and covers the exterior of the second and third stories.

Just inside the front door, an elegant foyer greets family and visitors, featuring off-white walls, a tall, two-story ceiling, a golden chandelier in the center, and an elegant spiral staircase with dark wood thresholds padded with carpeting in the center. The space’s wood trim shines white and glossy, while sepia-toned hardwood floors extend throughout the first floor.

A formal dining room with olive green walls and another chandelier hanging above a focal point for a dining table sits off to the left side of the foyer’s central stairwell. And in an enclosed room to the immediate right of the front door from the foyer, a study with white wood paneling and a brick fireplace running just beneath light mint green walls provides owners a quiet ambiance for business or unwinding.

Across the foyer from the study, a room with two large windows and the same light green walls and white ceilings can be used for a children’s playroom, study room, a small family room or entertainment space. A half-bathroom past this space sports gray, stone-like tiles lining the floor and half of its vertical wall space, with orange walls spanning the remaining height and a sleek, dark wood vanity in front of a mirror.

The kitchen comes equipped with elegant granite countertops, as well as high-end cabinetry and appliances, according to Muczko. Two large, industrial chandeliers hang above a central island here, and a bump out sunroom off to the side of the kitchen provides a venue for informal dining, overlooking the backyard vista.

The surrounding community features amenities including golf and tennis courses, Muczko added. “I’d definitely buy it,” she said. “The home clearly is designed for entertaining [and] big family gatherings.”
