The Plains, Virginia
Stone posts and walls mark the entrance to the 133 Acre Country Estate of Landmark. As the driveway gently rises, curves and then circles in front of the handsome two-story stone manor house, one notices that the home is sited perfectly to enjoy the expansive mountain views from the Bull Run to the Blue Ridge. The setting for this four bedroom, four bath residence is further heightened by the massive boxwoods and the stately trees.
From the columned front porch one enters into the gracious foyer with its gleaming wide width pine flooring, which carries throughout most of the main level. The foyer, which houses the staircase to both the upper and lower levels, is the full depth of the home and complete with alcove and bay window providing lovely views to the northeast. To the left of the foyer is the formal living room and family room and to the right the dining room, study and country kitchen.
The formal living room (26’ x 15 ½’) also the full depth of the home, features a large window to the front and French doors, which open to a balcony to the back. The wood-burning fireplace with marble surround and mantle is centered on one wall and to each side of the fireplace, doors open into an even more spacious family room (22’x 20’). Windows on three sides of this room provide wonderful light and through the picture window one has a grand view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The size and placement of this room would make a beautiful first floor bedroom.
To the right of the foyer is the dining room (16’ x 15’) with access to the cozy pine paneled study with full bath. Beyond the dining room one enters the spacious and light filled country kitchen (20’ x 15 ½’), which enjoys southern and eastern views to the Bull Run Mountains. The handsome stone fireplace, pine cabinetry and table space create a room where one will want to linger. Adjacent to the kitchen is a pantry with cabinetry and workspace; and also from the kitchen one has access to the mudroom, which leads out to the lawn. Within the mudroom are stairs leading up to a second floor play/hobby room, which can also be accessed from two of the second floor bedrooms.
Returning to the foyer one then ascends the main staircase to the second floor hallway, which to the left is the master bedroom (19’ x 15’) with private bath and access to a large storage room. This storage room offers the possibility to finish into a quiet sitting room that would enjoy pastoral and mountain views. Completing this level are 3 additional bedrooms, which share a hall bath and the play/hobby room.
From the foyer, one then descends to the lower level, which to the right is open to the recreation room (26’ x 18’) with fireplace and a door that leads outside. To the left of the stairway there is a full bath, media or exercise room (16’6” x 14’6”) and laundry room with access to the 2 car garage. Just beyond the attached garage is an additional 2 car detached garage.
Landmark’s 133 acres is in prime Orange County Hunt territory with potential for exceptional ride out. It is comprised of open fields, woods and a pristine 1 acre pond. Mostly surrounded by large estates protected by easements held by the Virginia Outdoors Foundation, this property is not in easement and offers potential for tax credits. Landmark is a wonderful property in a superb location within minutes of historic Middleburg and within easy driving distance to Dulles International Airport and Washington, D.C.
