It's not quite as far off the beaten path and summer camp chic as the log cabin in Manassas, but this 5 bedroom Great Falls home does a very good job of making the owner feel at one with the outdoors. There's a pond on the five acres of land and it's possible to see all of the greenery outside with the multiple windows. What's more, the home has a lot of natural materials like finished woodwork and stone to make the 4,800 square foot abode feel particularly connected to the environment. Of course there is the matter of the elevator. There's nothing close to nature about that and they exist in very few homes, even those of the near $2 million variety.
