FIRST TIME ON THE MARKET IN 64 YEARS! THE OASIS IN THE CITY! This radiant estate, comprising a Main Residence (2935 Albemarle) and a Guest House (2931 Albemarle -- see separate listing), which also features an apartment with private entrance, is the ideal retreat. Each home was designed and built in 1956 for the current owners' parents and grandparents. The sumptuous English gardens that unite the two homes were conceived in 1985 by the distinguished landscape architect Jane MacLeish. The present owner grew up on site, and in 2001 reoccupied the property as an adult with the plan to re-imagine it. Led by Richard Arentz, the gardens were expanded while noted architect Richard Williams re-envisioned the main residence and guest house to take on their present configurations. Peterson and Collins executed the construction with masterful attention to materials and craftsmanship. Every detail has been considered and every modern convenience and efficiency introduced including: an elevator, geothermal and solar energy, heated floors, recirculating hot water and Lutron Homeworks lighting are a few examples. The estate is "one of a kind" offering a timeless sense of grace, extraordinary privacy and an unparalleled expanse of enchanting gardens -- 1.25 acres -- in a location with easy access to conveniences, restaurants and Metro. Please review 2931 Albemarle. Both homes are offered together for $7,295,000.
