Perched on one of the premier lots in Mantua, this 1959 custom mid-century modern home evokes the post-and-beam homes in the hills above Los Angeles. The 4,300 square-foot home, being sold only for the second time, retains its vintage features, perfect for buyers who want to preserve the mid-century design or those who want to update in a sensitive way while retaining original items such as lighting, slate entranceway with planter, wood floors and modernist floating stairs and railings. The most stunning element of the home set on nearly an acre is the open living-dining room area with walls of glass, vaulted ceiling with original wood beams that came from one tree in Alaska and then milled in Japan before coming to the Washington area. The living area is surrounded by a refinished wrap-around balcony floating over the property. The main level has a primary suite with office (can be used as 5th bedroom) and large vintage bathroom. Two additional bedrooms connect through a shared bathroom. The lower level includes a bedroom with a full bathroom, excellent as a nanny or in-law suite. The family room features walls of glass sliders that open to the yard and a prominent stone fireplace. The remaining lower level is unfinished and can be used for a variety of purposes, including storage, workshop, exercise room or studio space. The property is accessed by a long driveway that opens to a private courtyard area and a bright attached two-car garage with windows. The roof is less than 3 years old. Electrical panel and hot water heater are brand new. Mantua is a beautiful wooded community with easy access parks and trail, as well as Route 66, the Beltway and Vienna and Dunn Loring Metro stations. The house is zoned for the Woodson High School cluster.
