Timeless Design in McLean

Welcome to the Stratford! A family in McLean VA tore down their home and rebuilt this dream on their exact same lot. One of the benefits of staying on the same lot is that you keep the same school, commute, and community. The kids were very happy that they got to stay at the same school, but have a bigger home with their own rooms. Here’s the exclusive tour.  

The walkway up to the home is truly eye catching. Gardening will be a lot of fun with this layout. Can’t you picture the wildflowers in between the two walkways? Another benefit of the walkway is that it will be a little bit easier moving from the car to the house in the snow. No need to trudge through the snow and leave your snowy boots at the front door.  

The fireplace, big windows, and clean white look, all come together to create a cozy space to unwind at the end of the day. The chair over by the fireplace makes the perfect reading nook which mom and dad will love.  

The kitchen is a minimalist dream as well. The clean white cabinets are broken up with a slate gray island. We love the big island with an overhang for barstools. This is a great place for the kids to sit and eat their snack while dinner is on the stove. We also love the mudroom off the kitchen. It’s a great spot to keep backpacks after a long day at school.  

Can we appreciate this morning room? The skylight is dreamy and a little bit of soft natural light in the morning will give you a peaceful start to the day. The shelving that divides the living room and morning room is a great place to decorate as well.  

Moving on to the owners suite, we have a tray ceiling and the clean white aesthetic continues. The ceiling adds a bit of depth to the room and makes the room feel bigger.  

The owners bathroom is a calming oasis. We love the double windows above the tub. The slate gray cabinet is a subtle pop of color that helps the room feel contemporary.
