This is a unique, unrestricted, waterfront property with acreage in a modern style with state-of-
the-art amenities. On arriving at the end of the private lane, you will find a work of art in the steel electric gate resembling vining plants. As you approach the home, at first glance, you see a simple industrial-type outline, until you see the soaring windows and the entry silhouettes in black steel. Before you go in, take a moment to turn slowly to take in the sweeping vistas over fields and mountains. Entering the home, the ceilings soar above you and the floor-to-ceiling windows bring the views inside. If you are overwhelmed by the light, the blinds on the transom windows operate with a push of the remote. The open-concept living/dining room boasts a Hearthstone woodstove, while the striking kitchen, with custom granite countertops and Bosch appliances, making it a cozy living space and an outdoor-interactive dining experience.
Pause a moment, though, to take in the floors. Poured epoxy, in layers of progressive color,
create depth and translucence and carry your eye into the hidden spaces. Don't miss the ancient squid--how many floors can boast an Orthoceras? Here the study is cleverly hidden away,
for those who like to work in privacy in the middle of the action. Note how thick the walls are--
to accommodate all the insulation and spectacular energy efficiency. Through the dining room is the three-season porch--check out the windows--you may as well be outside, but both panes of these windows move with a single motion. Back through the kitchen to the bedroom side of the home: each bedroom is spare and unique. Which view would you like to see from your bed?
Stars? Pastures? Moon? The largest bedroom has an ensuite bath, and the other bedrooms share the hall bathroom. The bonus room is currently being used for exercise and the sauna, which can convey, but could also be a 4th bedroom. It has the sliding doors to the back pasture area and overlooks the Shenandoah River when the Pawpaw trees lose their leaves in the fall. Take a sauna and go jump in the river! Which brings me to the river access. This home is high enough to be in no danger from floods. The path leads down through the trees from the horse pasture (bring your horses!). Cross the private lane at the bottom (which makes getting boats to the banks very convenient) and the river beckons invitingly for a dip or a jaunt on the kayak. Do you fish? Drop a line in your own fishing hole? Or you might bring your Adirondack chair and cup of coffee to watch the river flow. If you prefer cookie-cutter homes, this is not for you, but if you are looking for a home that invites you outdoors, spectacularly, in easy distance to the city, come see this remarkable property.
