Perfectly situated upon a hilltop in the Virginia countryside this very private residence is a 15 acre oasis surrounded by three large parcels totaling more than 300 acres of land all in protected easements.
Complete with its own guest cottage, carriage house (perfect for caretaker) and several more out buildings the original portion of the house dates back to 1790, a period when George Washington was the owner of record.
It is flanked by 150 year old boxwoods and soaring shade trees, the remainder of the house has been completely redesigned and reconstructed from ground up with material selections which include stucco over block, imported antique fireplaces and spectacular reclaimed random width hardwood floors accented by an impressive stone entry foyer floor.
The quality of construction of this home exceeds the expectations of even the most discerning buyer, with dramatic skylights, exposed beams on the entire main level, solid mahogany doors and windows throughout: this home shows off its Tuscan flair with impressive elegance.
Everything was thought of in this beautiful design, including a true gourmet kitchen and elevator to ease your travel labors and perhaps the most important level of planning, the use of a 10 zoned geothermal climate control system combined with a solid icining wrap makes the home ultra energy efficient as well.
