If you seek PEACE & TRANQUILITY while enjoying modern-day conveniences, then look no further than this property!
Full disclosure and full transparency! "I'm absolutely in love with this property...."
Nestled in a clearing between the Rappahannock River and Motts Run Reservoir, this modestly elegant and welcoming 2 level home is set high on the wooded vista of 3.25+ lush and lovely acres. A BEAUTIFULLY LANDSCAPED YARD – with open meadows and space for gardening - is surrounded by huge mature trees providing cooling summer shade and stunning fall color. A TRUE SANCTUARY!
YET, CONVENIENTLY LOCATED minutes from shopping at iconic national retailers and dining and the new Fredericksburg Nationals Stadium in Central Park. Easy access to I-95, the Amtrak/commuter train station making the commute to Washington D.C., Quantico, The Pentagon, Richmond VA in less than an hour. Nearby to Eden Try Winery, Motts Run fishing, and boating, Rappahannock access ramp, Mary Washington University, Old Town Fredericksburg, historic Fredericksburg Civil War battlefields, and George Washington’s boyhood home!
ABUNDANT ROOM to live comfortably, work remotely, entertain family, friends, and business associates. 4 Bedrooms and 3.5 Baths throughout 2 finished floors of approximately 4,300 finished square feet, showcasing well-proportioned rooms within all-brick, steel beam construction, served by central HVAC and vacuum systems, 2 water heaters, a deep well-water treatment system, and home security system. Besides the paved drive is a large, fenced concrete pad that has been used as a multi-dog kennel, complete with a basketball goal.
A 2017-2018 RENOVATION included two 100% new bathrooms, hardwood flooring, new roof, insulation, and gutters/guards.
**** Ask me about the pesky squirrel who found its way into the attic and bit into a wire...he/she is no longer with us, RIP Squirrelly. The dessert to that toasty bite is this house is about 70% brand new due to that freakish and shocking experience! ****
The front door, with sidelights, opens to the marble floor foyer with a dramatic sightline through the living room and bow window overlooking the pool and the river beyond. MAIN-LEVEL living areas have crown molding and new, richly textured scraped hardwood floors. To the right of the foyer, past the large enclosed pantry, is the dining room with French doors to a deck, a fireplace, and a marble-tiled wet bar. Beside the dining room is the kitchen, appointed with granite counters, stainless steel appliances, reverse osmosis water treatment, and light gray cabinetry. The counter overhang accommodates bar seating, and the open space at the large picture window suits a breakfast table. The large kitchen deck opens to a Zen garden perfect for Yoga, meditation or just being one with nature and diverse bird species at the feeders! Between the kitchen and living room is the bright “morning room” with waist-high shadowbox wainscoting.
THE MASTER SUITE includes a full bath and dressing room. 2 secondary bedrooms share a hallway full bath. Before stairs descend to the lower level, an enclosed laundry alcove is adjacent to a half bath, as well as access to the attached, oversized two-car garage.
THE LOWER LEVEL’S open floor plan has a child and pet-friendly tile flooring and access to the patio, gazebo, and pool. The custom Anthony Sylvan 25,000-gallon in-ground Gunite pool could cost $100,000 if built today, if you wanted to get one there is a 2-year waiting list to have one built! The family room has a wood-burning stove on a large brick hearth for cozy winter nights and boasts a full 2nd kitchen with granite counters and a large farm-style sink. Past the kitchen are a virtual learning center (or a large guest room with a patio door) for the kids to Zoom with teachers, learn and play - next to a working parent’s home office. Finally, the large spa bathroom includes a jetted jacuzzi for special relaxation.
