This stately, brick home is centrally located in the heart of Virginia’s horse and wine country, and within a 10 minute drive to Middleburg, Upperville and Marshall. Washington, DC is less than an houtr drive, with easy access to Interstate 66 and 50. The home was completely renovated in 2018 and enjoys a park like setting off of a charming country lane.
The 22 acre parcel is very private and has a good mixture of mature woods and open pasture. It is protected by a conservation easement (thus lowered property taxes) and is located in an area of larger farms and estates. It is a beautiful area to hike or ride horses.
Enter the home in to a two story foyer with views through to the back gardens. All other ceilings on this level are a minimum of ten feet high. A formal living room, dining room, family room, eat in kitchen, gathering room, mud room and laundry room are found on the main level. There are many built ins, hardwood floors, and three fireplaces on this floor. The newly remodeled kitchen has plenty of light, leathered granite counter tops, Sub zero, Bosch, and Wolf appliances. The mudroom/laundry room has a slate floor, full bath and dog washing station.
The kitchen, dining room and center hallway all open onto a two level 13’ x 49’ brick porch, with custom canvas retractable awnings, fans and sound system. It is there where you will spend much of your time, taking in the views and watching the glorious sunsets.
Upstairs on one side of the home are the master suite, with fireplace and two other large bedrooms. The two bathrooms were reconstructed in 2018 and boast Carrera marble, a large marble walk in shower and heated floor in the master bath. These three bedrooms all have access to a large sun porch overlooking the gardens. A fourth en suite bedroom is privately located at the other side of the house. That bedroom has a sitting area and fireplace. This would offer a great area for in laws, an au pair or visiting house guests.
On the lower level there is a mirrored exercise studio with barre and sauna; a secondary laundry room with ample storage and added closet space; and two large multifunctional rooms. What are your needs? Play area? Theater? Wine room? Craft area?
Above the bedroom area sits a large open space with hard wood floors, and built in file cabinets which is currently used as a home office. Yes! There is high speed internet here so one can comfortably work from home. There is a large storage closet with plumbing available. Again, this area is open to a multitude of uses.
The property was formerly the home of a master gardener, so there are many mature plantings blooming at various times throughout the year. A charming garden cottage provides storage for garden tools and includes a fenced area with raised planting beds. A 24’ x 30’ run-in shed/equipment building was added in 2019. The field in which it sits could be fenced for horses. There are two fields with lush thick grass which await your horses. More land could easily be cleared if more pasture is needed. There is great ride out (with permission) and the land is in the heart of Orange County hunt territory.
