From the street, the home at 1137 Basil Road in McLean, Virginia, looks relatively compact, with two asymmetrical building volumes meshed together: one a modern farmhouse and the other industrial-style masonry.

The narrow lot and tree cover hide the home’s real size—the floor plan measures 10,739 square feet across two stories, with high ceilings, an open concept layout, and windows arranged to capture natural light from all sides.
