Innisfree - Turnkey property with traditional 6 BR/6BA stucco & stone Tommy Beach designed VA farmhouse on 53 acres with spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. This immaculate house has been lovingly cared for and features a mix of formal rooms and wonderfully comfortable spaces to take in the gorgeous views. Sited preciously so the front hall commands a direct view of Ashby's Gap, the main level is one room wide with windows to take in the natural light and views. Exquisite details throughout the home include reclaimed heart pine floors, Venetian plaster and faux painted walls, hand-hewn beams, recessed paneling and over-sized mahogany doors. The gourmet kitchen, designed by Jan Forte, offers an oversized island and high-end appliances such as Sub-Zero, Miele & Viking. It opens to the family room w/floor to ceiling stone fireplace, built-ins and unique eat-in area w/a bay window facing the pastoral and mountain views. Just beyond the formal dining and living room is an octagonal book gallery which connects the 1st floor primary bedroom suite with his & her walk-in closets, luxury primary bath with heated marble floors and a private terrace. The 2nd floor has 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths. The 3rd floor has 2 bedrooms and 1 full bath. The fully finished lower level has faux painted walls and cork flooring. It offers a spacious recreation room with a fireplace, built-ins and a small kitchenette. There is also an exercise room and a full bath. Another laundry room and 2 utility and storage rooms complete this level. Off the back of the house is a deep covered porch ideal for entertaining and enjoying the sunsets. Off the kitchen is a mudroom area with a small office, half bath and a laundry room. Step out from there to a covered porch with an outdoor shower and a corner fireplace. This porch accesses the heated saltwater pool with an automatic cover. The garden area around the pool was designed by Charlottesville designer Thomas Woltz. But just as lovely as the house is on the inside, just wait until you experience the outside! The seller is a co-founder of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Research Center and wanted to put her know-how to work on this farm which was just a cornfield when they started. With the help of master landscape designer W. Gary Smith, they created a place they could live that would become a wildlife sanctuary friendly to all living things. They brought in Larry Weaner, another award-winning landscape designer to create the wildflower meadows. Winding paths meander through these meadows and lead to a pond with a dock and a fire circle made from stones found at an old mill. Another path goes to a Purple Martin Colony that returns every spring. And on it goes. This unique 25+ plus year collaboration between landscape designers, the owners and the farm itself has created a property unlike any other in this area. The farm also includes a 1 BR/2 BA guest house attached to an extensive 3-bay equipment building. This building features redwood siding, a copper roof and gutters. Horse amenities include a 4-stall center aisle barn with pine paneled heated tack room w/full bath, wash stall, feed room, and 4 fenced paddocks w/auto waterers and run-in sheds. Property is protected by a VOF Easement. More photos to come.
