Perfectly sited atop six acres of forested hillside, this custom-built home is a testament to meticulous craftsmanship and thoughtful design. Conceived by architect Walter Parks of Richmond, VA, no expense was spared in its creation. This home's exquisite detail and unparalleled construction qualit...y set it apart from conventional new construction projects in Northern Virginia. * Turning into the driveway and driving through the stone and iron property gate, the unusual character of this house looms large. The over 6.500 square foot home's exterior is through brick and West Virginia FieldStone, expertly matched in color and texture, an intricate method ensuring both structural integrity and visual allure. Three composite decks, a grand composite stairway from the main level to the yard, a two-car garage, and a separate one-car garage that enters directly into a hallway in the two-level Primary Suite, are the finishing touches to the exterior of this villa. * Inside, the structural integrity is augmented by 2" x 6" studs and interior wall insulation. The attention to detail is evident everywhere, including in the repeating architectural elements of arches, curves, earth elements of wood and stone, and light. From the arched tops of windows to the use of clerestory windows, glass block, and stained glass, to the rounded corners of each main-level wall, every architectural element reflects a deliberate dedication to thoughtful design. High ceilings (10+ feet and some vaulted), create an expansive ambiance in the open-flow living area, complemented by wood-trimmed windows, and solid 9' wood doors. The exotic Tiger hardwood and marble flooring help balance the space with a grounding influence * The main level rooms are infinitely inviting. The kitchen, a masterpiece of culinary design, showcases top-tier Thermador and Bosch appliances surrounded by Golden Oak granite counters with book-matched backsplashes and warm top-of-the-line cherry cabinets. A large storage area flanks the kitchen and includes the perfect butler's pantry/beverage station or bar - an entertainer's dream. * The Great Room beckons with a 50" wide wood-burning fireplace ensconced in an arched surround of West Virginia Fieldstone, an ode to both grandeur and warmth. Transition seamlessly from indoors to out through entrances to the sprawling decks, extending your living space into your own private forest. * The two-level Primary Suite is a sanctuary unto itself, complete with a private deck, a gas fireplace, a private garage, and a spa-like bathroom replete with a double shower, a sunken tub, and a dressing area. Upstairs, a versatile space awaits, currently purposed as a gym but open to myriad possibilities such as an office or a serene sitting room. Up here there is another private deck, and a huge storage area/closet. * The additional main-level bedroom was thoughtfully designed as an In-law/Guest suite designed for ease with a handicapped accessible ensuite bathroom. The laundry room/mudroom balances out the main floor, strategically located adjacent to both back door entrances. * Entertainment opportunities await throughout the house. In the basement, distinct zones cater to diverse interests. From an Entertainment Zone primed for karaoke or fireside gatherings to a Sports/Game Zone wired for surround sound, every corner exudes fun. Upstairs, the media room is wired and ready for hours of entertainment, and the snack bar right next door is ready for a popcorn machine and a hotdog steamer. * Inside and out, this private oasis offers so many unique experiences. Located close to both George Washington's boyhood home at Ferry Farm, Civil War historic sites, and downtown Fredericksburg, the private location is well-situated for so many varied experiences.
