Unique and charming, this arts and crafts style mountain retreat was built in 1904 as an escape from the heat of the city. Beautiful wood floors, 5 stone fireplaces, exposed beams, huge enclosed porch. On 14 private acres, both wooded and lawn, surrounded by mature trees.Only a mile from Rt. 7. Several outbuildings with stone foundations.
The interior features exposed stone walls, deep window sills, and gleaming pine floors in most rooms. There are five wood burning fireplaces in the home, the most massive being the one in the great room at the center of the house. Wooden beams and chair-rail-high siding of quarter sawn tree trunks add to the character of this room. The large porch across the entire length of the front of the house has been enclosed for year-round enjoyment. A dining room, kitchen with breakfast nook, full bath and two other rooms used as a bedroom and a study complete the main level.
A staircase, with unusual banisters made of tree branches, leads upstairs. Two bedrooms, each with a stone fireplace, one with a balcony, are located on the second floor. The third floor, under the steep slope of the roof, would be perfect for children and grandchildren to sleep and play.
|The grounds include lawns, shaded by huge trees, and several outbuildings. One has a large finished space for a games room, one is a shed made into a car port, others house equipment and stacks of wood.|
Close to Washington DC but with the rejuvenating feeling of a mountain getaway, "Solitude" is equally perfect as a full-time or weekend residence.
