A home in Falls Church with its own private beach? It exists, says Roy Melloni of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty.

“Not a lot of people know this lake even exists,” said Roy Melloni of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty. “But to come home and sit in your boat or jump in the lake — you really can’t beat that.”

The six-bedroom house sits on Lake Barcroft, a 135-acre private lake with five private beaches. The home has a library and recreation room, as well as a swimming pool and boat dock.

“And it has the nicest sunsets in Fairfax County,” Melloni said.

The 8,627-square-foot home is on the market for $4.9 million.
