A light-filled Williamsburg styled Colonial Revival mansion on a quiet country lane in Clifton, Virginia, has everything you need for privacy and comfort not far from the city. And the systems running behind the scenes add even more to this home~s unique appeal. Starting with the exterior, 13101 Loth Lorian Drive, offered at 1.95 million, is a picture-perfect, large three-story, brick house with another level below-grade, and has about 12, 000 square feet of living space. A double staircase leads to a welcoming front door that is encompassed by a two-story Palladian window, which floods the first-floor and central staircase inside with sunlight. The entry hall and great room of the home are illuminated by two grand chandeliers, plus a fixture in the adjacent dining room sparkles with a multitude of large Swarovski crystals. The home has seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms and two half-baths. A second, two-story Palladian window opposite the one on the fa~ade allows for panoramic views of the pool and surrounding woodlands. (Some have noticed a resemblance between the home and Long & Foster~s Chantilly, Virginia, headquarters, which also is designed in the early American style.)The current owner, added a three-car garage with an au-pair suite, blending it seamlessly with the existing architecture. Other enhancements can~t be seen but perhaps are detected in the air. He also purchased a system that brings in outdoor air, scrubs it through a filtration system, and exchanges it with stale indoor air to keep the dust down, making the air so clean that it doesn~t give your upper respiratory tract a beating. Being an ENT Surgeon, he does know what he was doing to make the air as clean and fresh as an operating room. Other improvements included four steam humidifiers, a whole-house vacuum system, two tankless gas water heaters, and extra attic insulation. The home also has two enterprise-level wifi hotspots and a firewall, to aid with conducting business securely over the internet from home. Additionally, they installed a whole-house generator that can power the entire property including the pool, along with a battery backup that can run the house for 24 hours if the main system fails.Situated 28 miles west of Washington, D.C., on five acres, the property has ample outdoor entertaining space. Two large decks and a screened gazebo overlook the pool, which is surrounded by terraced landscaping and a brick patio. An Otis elevator to all 4 levels, makes it easy to transport refreshments and accoutrements for entertaining from the kitchen to the lower-level pool and patio.
