“Skyfall” Complete — An Extraordinary New Estate in the Reserve – 880 Centrillion Drive, McLean, Virginia 22102
The extraordinary new custom built mansion that was under construction at 880 Centrillion Drive, McLean, Virginia 22102 is now complete and called “Skyfall.” Built by renowned local builder — the Galileo Group — the owners of this exquisite new residence will enjoy a pool and beautifully landscaped grounds by Fine Landscapes among other luxurious amenities. This grand estate home was built on 2.5 acres of land that is surrounded by a protected piece of property — a conservation easement. The land was purchased for $1,500,000 on 2/22/13 (with cash while it was not listed in the MLS) and cost close to another $1 M to develop the land on which the residence and all it’s wonderful amenities were built, according to the real estate agent that previously had the lot listed for sale. The cost for construction of this home is not public information, but a good estimate for the total cost to build this luxurious estate would be somewhere between $7 and 8 million based on the builder, finishes and quality of building materials — including a stone bridge over a creek for the driveway to the main house, a solid mahogany front entry door, copper over-sized gutters and downspouts, a slate roof, a solid building stone (not a veneer) exterior with natural cedar shingle accents, several masonry fireplaces, working shutters, and a large backup generator — just to name a few. The great attention to detail is obvious — there’s even a two-car garage tucked into the hillside.
The lot was originally listed for sale for $2,350,000 on 6/14/08. This listing expired on 12/3/08. It was put back on the market on 1/22/09 for $1,999,500, reduced to 1,895,000 on 10/1/09, and subsequently was withdrawn from the market on 9/14/10. It was re-listed again on 6/3/11 for $1,769,000. It was on the market for 544 days before it was withdrawn from the market on 11/28/12.
