Meander a short distance down a gravel road to this secluded parcel nestled amongst large farms in Northern Fauquier County. “Willowcroft” is a meticulously renovated house situated on one manicured acre. This two-story move-in ready home was completely re-built in 2007 better maximizing the use of the interior space and creating a larger 2nd level. While the stucco exterior and metal roof exemplify a more traditional Virginia cottage, the interior perfectly balances a mix of sophistication and style.
The home was originally a dark 1950’s stucco cottage with small rooms, an asphalt shingle roof and overgrown with trees and shrubs. The owners extensively reconfigured the interior spaces so as to create a contemporary home with a country feel.
A pea gravel walkway leads to a new front entrance with covered flagstone porch with four traditional columns. Step through the doorway into a light filled Foyer banked by bench seats and a wall defined by two unique alcoves. The Foyer and long hallway feature high gloss slate flooring and many windows. Directly off the Foyer is a light filled room with a coffered ceiling that can be used as an Office, a Den or a 1st floor Bedroom.
Follow the long hallway to a small passage way which contains the Powder Room, the Laundry Room, and a back door covered entrance way. The hallway leads passed the stairway to the 2nd level and ends at the Kitchen that features all high-end stainless appliances, granite counter tops and custom cabinetry. Directly across from the kitchen is the Eat-In Area filled with windows that overlook the sweeping front lawn and gardens. The Dining Room has bold vertical black and white stripes with the original 1950’s stone fireplace and is bookended by French doors on either side. Just outside one set of French doors is a large open flagstone terrace, ideal for entertaining. Two doorways from the dining room lead down into the open Living Room with original pine flooring, a large bay window with a window seat, a fireplace with a woodstove, and two sets of French doors to one side.
The Upper Level features two Guest Bedrooms with a shared full bath, the Master Bedroom Suite with a full bath and the attic storage area. Follow the stairway with unique glass walls up to the hallway at the top with a dormered window seat. To the left are the two guest bedrooms with large shed row dormered windows and built-in desks. To the right of the landing is the Guest Full Bath. Continue down the hallway which ends at the Master Bedroom Suite with His and Her Walk-In closets and a light filled Master Bath. There is also an entrance door here to a spacious attic storage area. Extensive landscaping was added to the property that includes new black board fencing around the perimeter, a pair of stone entrance pillars, expanded pea gravel parking area and new pea gravel walkways. New plantings included dogwood trees, viburnum bushes that line the drive and walkways, and hydrangeas and boxwoods that surround the house.
