Ideally located in the heart of the quaint village of Upperville, Wayside is a stunning historic residence, on .63 acres amidst towering trees and brilliant perennial gardens. A high stucco wall, with cascading ivy, encompasses the beautiful brick courtyard terrace, providing privacy and seclusion in an idyllic setting.

The main residence, circa 1833, has been beautifully updated with all modern amenities, while meticulous care has been taken in preserving its historical integrity.

Presently owned by a renowned author, columnist and historian, this elegant home is tastefully appointed, superbly detailed and has often been the site or many splendid parties and events.

The stately columned entrance opens to a grand living room boasting high ceilings & gleaming antique wood floors, which grace the entire main level. Adjacent is an extraordinary library/family room that invites casual or elaborate entertaining, with a wet bar, wood burning fireplace and custom bookcases. There is a natural flow into the adjacent brick floored solarium. Walls of windows here provide natural sun light by day and breathtaking views of the stars at night through its domed sky light.

The entertaining continues into the exquisite formal dining room with a brilliant chandelier and recessed lighting in the cove ceiling. Next is the study with an inviting wood burning fireplace and doorway to a marvelous screened porch overlooking the lovely gardens and charming guest cottage next door.

There are two kitchens featuring premium commercial stainless steel appliances, four ovens, a gas 6 burner range, and commercial grade refrigerator and freezer.

Two staircases access the second level, which lead to an incredible master suite with sitting room, luxurious bath and walk in closet. Two additional large bedrooms, two full baths and an office, complete the upper level.

A charming guest cottage is located at the property & overlooks the manicured grounds, lush lawns and distant magnificent Blue Ridge Mountains. The one bedroom cottage includes a high ceiling beamed living room, fully equipped kitchen, full bath, screened porch and upper level deck. Ideal for guests or au pair, it can also be rented or potentially used as a fabulous B&B.

Located within walking distance to village restaurants, antiques shops, churches and a wine tasting establishment, Wayside is a stunning property offering the perfect combination of historic beauty and modern amenities for a gracious and luxurious country lifestyle.
