Located just north of the town of Madison is this beautiful modern farmhouse situated on 62+/- acres of land. The home shows the classic features of an old farmhouse that has grown and expanded over the years. But looks are deceiving; this is a modern home built in 2007 and though it has all the charm of an old home, it has all the features desired for today’s living. From the covered porch at the front of the house, you enter into a large great room that is open to the second floor, with plenty of windows to take in panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. A large gourmet kitchen features the high-end appliances desired by discriminating cooks and has direct access to a cozy breakfast nook and the formal dining room. A wing added onto the right of the great room includes a study/nursery and an ensuite bedroom. A large pantry, laundry room and a screened-in porch complete the main floor of the house. An open staircase leads to the second floor which in the center section is open to the lower level and includes a comfortable sitting area. A guest bedroom and bath are on the front side of the house, while the master suite faces the mountains and features both a screened porch and open porch to take full advantage of the views. The lower level of the house includes a large entertainment space with a kitchenette, a bath, bonus room and a storage, and walks out to a large back patio.
Outside features a large open lot that slopes downward to Whiteoak Run, a bold creek that divides two pastures on the flat lower section of the property. These pastures, each with its own road entrance, are currently leased to a local farmer. Returning back to the house, the landscaping includes gardens and rock walls, a breezeway that connects the two car garage to the side porch, raised bed gardens and a fenced-in Gunite swimming pool. There is also a separate storage barn for parking a tractor and yard equipment.
In addition to the stunning views and the home’s style and comfort, this property adds a convenient location. With easy access to both Charlottesville and Northern Virginia, it is perfect as a primary residence or second home. This is truly a charming country house that you will love!
