Set in a meticulously planned and fully mature landscape, surrounded by "original forest" and streams from two sides of the property, this Centreville residence offers an intimate connection with nature that cherishes long views and privacy in equal measure. This is a modern home, make no mistake, but it is defined by classic architectural elements. 153 Saint Moritz Drive in L'Hermitage offers over 4,500 square feet of living space, not including the finished lower level which leads to the gorgeous in-ground pool with travertine marble surround. Enter into a grand foyer with curved staircase, 9 foot+ ceilings, an open floorplan to the dining room, newly refinished hardwood floors and freshly painted neutral walls. Both living room and kitchen connect to a lovely sitting room with brick floors. The renovated kitchen opens up to the family room that has a brick fireplace. The kitchen is a chef's dream with large island, white Fabuwood high-end cabinetry, a natural stone backsplash, built-in microwave and wall oven, Jenn Air Refrigerator, and a Wolf 6 burner range. There is a gracious breakfast room surrounded by windows with views to the deck and backyard. There is a first floor primary suite with large 4 piece master bathroom in proximity to an additional room that can be used as an office, bedroom or dressing room. This house has rooms that could easily be bedroom number 5 as well as space that could be finished as a second floor flex area- think craft room, think studio. The second floor has three additional large sized bedrooms, a bonus room, and two full bathrooms. The lower level is beautifully finished with a full bathroom including a sauna. There are multiple areas in the lower level including workout, theatre, and additional storage. This is the level that has a walkout to the pool which will take your breath away. The thing that is so magical about this house is that it is friendly and charming despite its elegance. The house conveys its beauty without being intimidating.
