Extraordinary one-floor living on this 90 acre farm just 5 minutes from the charming town of Scottsville and 25 minutes from Charlottesville. Nestled in the midst of formal and country gardens, this 3800 square-foot home is bordered by varied and beautiful views. From the western sunsets over a three-acre pond, to the pasture view and garden pavilion from the front porch, the winding creek and woodland sides will insure you will never grow bored with its beauty. The open single level floor plan not only provides an outside-inside feel but a vast amount of space for entertaining family and friends.
Some of the home’s unique features include a master bedroom suite that contains a comfortable sitting area with built-in bookshelves and a master bath with a Jacuzzi Whirlpool bath overlooking the “Bath Garden" with its three tiered fountain. The glass enclosed steam shower will certainly help to soothe the soul. The large walk-in closet completes the suite.
The open floor plan encompassing the family room with its gas/wood-burning fireplace, the lounge area and the kitchen, facilitates family or entertaining gatherings. The sunroom off the kitchen with its skylights, vaulted ceiling, and a huge expanse of glass doors provides a bright, cheerful country dining area with a panoramic view of the pond.
The formal columned living and dining rooms with high ceilings offer a touch of elegance. Off the tiled front entry you’ll find the library/study with magnificent custom hand-built cherry bookshelves and cabinets. Complementing the bookshelves is a beautiful built-in wet bar with a draw type refrigerator and freezer.
The property itself consists of 26 acres of pasture land, fenced and cross fenced with two water facilities providing access to 6 paddocks/fields. The remaining acreage is in mature woodland. There are spring-fed ponds which are stocked with a variety of fish. An abundance of wildlife, including deer and turkey, as well as migrating birds, enjoy the ponds. The property consists of two tax map parcels, each having their own pond and is perfect for most types of livestock.
And, last but not the least, there are the two outbuildings. The “shop” is an electrified, wood-heated forced air, insulated building with a full bathroom and 2400 square feet of open space to satisfy the most demanding wood-worker or hobbyist. The “shed” is an open four bay 30 x 80 foot steel building capable of storing large farm equipment. The two interconnected drilled wells provide water for the home, shop, and numerous water hydrants around the property.
