Long & Foster® Real Estate, Inc., the largest independent residential real estate company in the United States, announced today that it is proud to be a sponsor of ABC 7’s Home of Distinction with Sidd Kashyap Custom Homebuilder, benefitting the Easter Seals of DC | MD | VA.
Built by Sidd Kashyap Custom Homebuilder, the 2013 Home of Distinction is a 9,200-square-foot, brick and stone luxury home, that is Energy Star Certified and sits on a 0.6-acre lot with an attached three-car garage. The home’s master bedroom, as well as three additional bedroom suites, are on the second floor, while a guest suite is included on the first floor. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the family room, living room, morning room, master bedroom and master bathroom make the home sunny and open. The home is listed by Long & Foster’s John Mentis and is offered for $2.975 million.
“This year’s Home of Distinction is a beautiful McLean-area home that visitors will be thoroughly impressed with,” said Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc. “This property joins our other extraordinary property listings that are showcased in the global spotlight through our exclusive affiliation with Christie’s International Real Estate, in select areas, and our affiliations with Luxury Portfolio International Real Estate, Luxury Real Estate and Leading Real Estate Companies of the World."
The public is welcome to view the luxurious ABC 7 Home of Distinction from Sept. 12-29. The home will be open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., as well as on Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. The cost to tour the home is $10 per person, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefitting the Easter Seals Veteran Staffing Network program.
The Easter Seals, founded in 1919, is a national leader in offering help, hope and answers to more than a million children and adults. The organization works to provide exceptional services to ensure all those with disabilities or special needs, including military members, wounded warriors, veterans and their families, have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities.
The Easter Seals’ new Veteran Staffing Network is working to redefine veterans’ employment and temporary-to-permanent placement services. The VSN functions as a staffing agency, placing veterans, military spouses, National Guard and Reservists and wounded warriors, and revenues from the placement fees are reinvested to provide crucial support and services for veterans, wounded warriors and their families.
“We are proud to be a sponsor of the 2013 ABC 7 Home of Distinction,” said P. Wesley Foster, Jr., chairman and CEO of the Long & Foster Companies. “At Long & Foster, we firmly believe in supporting those who have served our country in the military. We’re pleased to be part of an event benefitting the Easter Seals DC | MD | VA, an organization that works tirelessly on behalf of members of the military, veterans and their families, and many others.”
