Perfectly sited to enjoy beautiful pastoral views to the West, this elegant and classic Virginia manor house was designed to host outdoor family gatherings as well as elegant dinner parties. Completely restored in 2012, the home also enjoys a stunning addition.
A wide and inviting front porch features slate flooring, round columns, and a handsome front door along with an imported English Butler Bell. The two-story foyer welcomes guests with a sweeping “U” shaped staircase with a custom Stark Carpet runner that continues through the upper hallway. Wide plank oak flooring along the wide base molding show the attention to detail that is evident throughout the home.
