Gorgeous country home with many custom amenities, including expansive hickory floors, vaulted ceilings & large, beautiful reclaimed barn beams. The wide open Great Room has ample space for entertaining, a gas log fireplace, plenty of windows and doors to the wrap around porch. The kitchen boasts a large island, glass-front hickory cabinetry, JennAir downdraft range/oven, stainless steel Kenmore appliances & a large vented exhaust hood with area prepped for 42" cooktop. The large mudroom has tons of storage, a half bath, a coat closet and entry from patio/grilling area & backyard. This room is perfect for coming in from the barn or garden, yet compliments the home with wood floors and thoughtful finishes. The beautiful Fireplace Room is built in a style to compliment the heritage of the old Virginia Farmstead. It has a Rumford fireplace set in locally quarried Limestone with a barn beam mantel. The ceiling joists are from a local barn and the exposed wood is from the barn's old granary. The master suite has wood floors, recessed ceiling & lighting, large windows, separate entrance to porch, a giant walk-in closet and a sitting area/office. The master bath has a large tiled walk-in shower with a bench, a separate nook with a jetted tub with see-through fireplace into bedroom. The laundry room is just off the master bedroom and has a laundry tub, countertop for folding clothes, shelves, cabinets and an area for hanging clothes. Upstairs, there is a loft, an office/bedroom, full bath with tub/shower and a large bedroom with window seat, closet and storage area. The finished basement is a separate living area with a private entrance & patio area. It has a living room, efficiency kitchen, dining area, gas log fireplace, bedroom with closet & a full bath with shower. An oversized (12' deep, 110' long) porch wraps 3 sides of the house. This was built in the spirit of an Australian Outback Station House, where they tie the indoors to the outdoors for year round living. Sit and enjoy a good thunderstorm or a balmy evening here! There is beautiful landscaping with flowering perennials, trees and shrubs. There is a wet weather stream, a creek and woods which bring in wildlife and birds of all shapes and sizes. There is plenty of room for a large garden if desired. The oversized 2 car garage has tons of storage space and a separate workshop. The unfinished second story has 3 dormers and unlimited potential. There is a small shed/chicken coop in the backyard that is as cute as can be! The barn has three 12'x12' stalls, a tack room with a fireplace, a work area, hay storage and an upper level for tons more storage. There is an overhang for shade/protection for horses/cows on one side of the barn and a large paddock around 2 sides. There are two separate pastures that share a Ritchie automatic waterer. Outside the barn is an 80' four-board round arena with a crushed stone base. Finally, adding character to the farm, there is an old silo and stone barn foundation in the pasture. The silo could be converted into something fun or just enjoyed for its nostalgic charm. This home is a Show Stopper, yet it is built for people to LIVE in. It's gorgeous, rugged and unique and you won't find another one like it. This is the first time ever on the market. THE HOME IS LEASED THROUGH OCTOBER 2015. Plan now for next year's move!
