For many people, a luxury home means one thing: space. Homes set on plenty of acreage instantly seem to belong to that stratosphere of opulence available only to the wealthiest.

While not every home set on an oversized lot provides extensive interior space, the home at 2506 Hollybrook Place in Oakton, Va., has nearly 8,600 finished square feet on three levels. Set on 2 acres, this estate, on the market for $1,499,900, also includes a private guesthouse featuring a living area with a fireplace, full kitchen, bedroom and full bath.

In addition to the guesthouse, the landscaped grounds, which back to mature trees, include an in-ground swimming pool with a cabana. Guests and residents can relax on the deck or patio in pleasant weather and enjoy the privacy afforded by the expansive grounds.

The main house includes an attached, oversized three-car garage. This elegant property has a circular drive leading to the main house, which has a stone front and Hardiplank siding. This custom-designed home, built in 2000, has three finished levels with five bedrooms, five full baths and two half baths.

This Colonial-style home has been designed to meet the highest of 21st-century standards, with an abundance of windows, tray ceilings, distinctive crown molding and a custom-designed marble staircase. Guests are welcomed in the grand foyer and, when the owners are entertaining formally, can be brought into the 14-by-13-foot living room, which has hardwood flooring and a fireplace. The formal dining room, even larger at 19 by 13 feet, easily can accommodate large gatherings. This room has a tray ceiling and a crystal chandelier.

The open main-level floor plan makes for easy entertaining, with the gourmet kitchen at the center of the level. The kitchen, which has stainless steel appliances and granite counters, includes double wall ovens and a cooktop on the center island. The island is large enough to also accommodate seating at a breakfast bar. Windows on two sides of the kitchen add plenty of natural light, while hardwood flooring adds warmth.

The main level also has a grand two-story family room with a fireplace, hardwood flooring and a wall of glass featuring three levels of windows. The 13-by-12-foot library has hardwood flooring and built-in bookcases. Two powder rooms are also located on the main level.

The first-floor master suite has recessed lighting and a luxurious bath with a separate shower and a whirlpool tub set under a wall of windows.

The upper level includes four spacious bedrooms, two of which have a private full bath. The fourth and fifth bedrooms share a connecting bath.

The finished lower level includes a full bath, a recreation room and two additional rooms that can serve as den, exercise room, home office or playroom.

Located not far from Hunter Mill Road and Route 123, this home offers quick access to shops and restaurants in Vienna and Tysons Corner and an easy drive to the Vienna Metro station. Residents are close to Washington Dulles International Airport and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and are near Interstate 66, the Dulles Toll Road and the Beltway for commuting.
