Beautifully sited in the foothills of the magnificent Blue Ridge Mountains, this stunning private estate encompasses over 16 gorgeous acres of sweeping lawns, towering trees and lush woodlands. A private and picturesque country road, past other grand homes in prestigious Boxley Farms, leads to the impressive entrance of this extraordinary custom-built residence.
A circular drive, bordered by mature boxwoods and brilliant gardens, highlights the parklike grounds and the storybook setting. A gracious high-ceilinged Foyer opens immediately to walls of fabulous windows in the two storied Living Room, bathing the rooms in natural sunlight. The views are breathtaking, and the soaring stone fireplace adds a wonderful element of warmth and charm to the home. A formal dining room is adjacent and shares the magnificent see-through fireplace. The ceilings are vaulted and enhance the rooms with lovely indirect lighting. The incredible double windows offer panoramic views of the private and serene setting. Next along the rear façade is the gourmet country Kitchen, truly a “Chef’s dream” with a granite center island, breakfast bar and table. The premium appliances include a Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, two sinks, Corian counters with glass tiled back splash, a Wolf 5 burner gas stove with wok and commercial grade copper hood, and a Gaggenau steamer. Windows line all the walls capturing wonderful views of beautiful birds and wildlife. A charming Family Room is part of the kitchen’s open floor plan, featuring a floor to ceiling fieldstone fireplace to enjoy on chilly evenings.
