SOLD! – Contemporary on 5+ Acres in the Moyaone Reserve
Your own wooded retreat under 20 miles from the District of Columbia! Perched on a crest of a hill and beautifully sited on over 5 wooded acres, this artist-designed home is one of a kind. Natural light fills the house, which features exposed beams originally milled from the property. This home was prominently featured in the Washington Post (Where we live: Moyaone Reserve is at home with nature in Accokeek, Md.; October 2014).
The Moyaone Reserve is a 2,800-acre community protected by federal scenic easements, with a community pool and garden, BBQ and event space. The Reserve is adjacent to the National Park Service’s Piscataway Park and the National Colonial Farm.
There are four bedrooms and two baths, with two bedrooms and bath on the upper level, a bedroom/office on the main level, and guest bedroom with bath, laundry and large family room on the lower level. This arrangement provides comfort and privacy for owners and guests. The Great Room features a high-vaulted ceiling, skylights and a wall of windows. The ever-changing forest views and southern exposure flood the space with light.
A deck off the dining room feels like the home is sitting in the treetops and features a wood-fired hot tub. A large screened-in porch is perfect for outdoor entertainment, with a wood-fired pizza oven only a few steps away.
