Prepare to be transported to a Mediterranean villa, says Roy Kohn, the broker for this week’s featured home, a five-bedroom house in Fairfax Station.

“Being in this home feels like you’re on a private vacation,” Kohn said. “The walls have custom Venetian paintings, there’s a great black-bottomed pool out back, and the entire property is peaceful and secluded.”

Among the home’s features: A two-story dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows, four fireplaces and a refurbished basement with a wet bar.

The 6,000-square foot home sits on six acres of land and is surrounded by horse trails, Kohn said. It was built in 1982, and is on the market for $1.08 million.
