    Description

    Looking for a private, renovated contemporary retreat on over an acre of land, without having to leave Mclean? Well, look no further! This updated 5 BR, 4 BA mid-century contemporary home is in the Langley HS pyramid. This home has a very interesting history, too! (see story below). There are four large bedrooms on the upper-level w/ Master Bath and hall bath, along with one small bedroom/den/office on the main level with a full bath, and one full bath on the lower level. The home is located only five minutes from the beltway, yet offers so much privacy. It has a light and airy modern design, perfect for family and entertaining. Gourmet kitchen with top of the line cabinetry & top of the line stainless steel appliances. Two large gas fireplaces are found in the spacious family room and master bedroom. All mechanicals and roof are updated. Beautiful hardwood floors on the main level and upper level. A large, bright enclosed balcony opens from two of the front bedrooms is perfect for a year-round herb garden, to do yoga or meditation, or just to enjoy a good book overlooking the view. An incredible patio with a large built-in fire pit is located outside of the spacious family room, and perfect for outdoor entertaining! This home was built in 1966 by J. Yokam who traveled extensively around the world and had a passion for gardening exotic plants. The design of the home was initiated by Herbert Bayer, famous for developing the san serif typeface, and who was a famous graphic artist and designer. ( On the coffee table in the living room is the home that was the inspiration for this home - located in Aspen CO and designed by Bayer )The house was placed on the lot to elevate the feng shui energy of the location and maximize the front gardens. The Yokums headed the Mclean Horticulture Society for more than a decade. In the early 1970s, 970 Saigon Circle graced the cover of Town Country Magazine's Garden edition and hosted several art exhibits throughout this period. The current owners have enjoyed the grace and beauty of this iconic home for 20 years and lovingly maintained it. A must see - Please see the tour! http://tour.homevisit.com/view/314653
