Home of the Week: 1L Plan by Miller and Smith. Ashburn, Virginia

Looking for cutting-edge design and a richness in your future new home? Try the 1L Plan by Miller and Smith. This decadently designed townhome located in Ashburn, Virginia, will appeal to your artistic side, your practical side, and your outdoorsy side. All sides of your personality will appreciate this four-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath home close to the D.C.-metro area’s top attractions.

First, let’s talk about the fact that this home comes with an elevator! It’s a seriously practical feature for a four-level home. Each level is meant to inspire a different feel. The Wanderlust level, also known as the first level, is where you can enjoy your favorite hobby, book, movie or more in your personal lobby (this model has a personal bar) and greet guests in your vestibule, an amped up entryway that you can personalize with bold displays of artwork. A powder room and two-car garage round out the first level.

The Masterworks level, the second level, is where the living and entertaining spaces are located. Here, an entertaining room, kitchen and dining room are all part of an open floor plan, so you’ll never feel cramped. A pantry helps keep the well-appointed kitchen organized and clutter-free. And, should you feel like dining al fresco, you can easily take dinner out onto the home’s balcony overlooking the community park.

The third level is aptly titled the Penthouse. A spacious owner’s suite is on one side for privacy, while two secondary rooms are spacious retreats for roommates, kids or guests. A private balcony lets you get a breath of fresh air. Homebuyers can also opt for a spa bath to up the luxe level in an already luxurious master bathroom.

The fourth level is where you’ll find the pied-à-terre, a French term that means a temporary or secondary lodging, according to Webster’s Dictionary. Here it means “place where you can enjoy the outdoors in private.” OK, I just made that up, but clearly, it’s a great spot to enjoy the home’s roof terrace. There’s a loft too, so you can easily store a bar cart and wheel it out for drinks on the terrace. Or simply make this the unofficial game room that can spill outside when the weather’s right.

No matter which level you intend to spend most time on, each is always ideal for lazy days, productive days or both.

What Living at Upper West at One Loudon Like?

 This townhome community is an oasis of its own, with a community park and a dog park just outside the building, so homeowners get nice views. Across the way is a movie theater, brewery, restaurants, book store and more planned stores. You won’t have to go far to enjoy shopping, dining and entertainment. However, should you want to venture out, the community is close to the D.C. metro’s top attractions and a convenient drive to the Washington Dulles International Airport.
