This character-filled and immaculate custom home, built in 2010, is on a picturesque ten-acre hobby farm in Free Union hunt country 15 minutes from Route 29/Forest Lakes shopping center and 20 minutes from Barracks Road shopping center. Enjoy beautiful Blue Ridge mountain views from both the front and back porches.
This energy-efficient, light-filled, 2,120 square foot home has limed oak hardwood floors throughout and skylights on both levels. It lives larger than it looks thanks to a flexible, open-plan layout that allows for 2-3+ bedrooms, including a large master upstairs with en suite dressing room/nursery and potential for a first-floor master bedroom with dedicated bath. It has 2 full bathrooms with subway-tiled tubs/showers, one on each floor, including the upstairs master with 6' soaking tub, and a first-floor powder room. The kitchen is a cook's dream, featuring premium stainless steel appliances, five-burner propane gas stovetop with convection oven, ample soapstone counters, and a vaulted, beamed ceiling. There is a separate utility room with deep laundry sink and front-loading Samsung steam washer and dryer. Closets in every room and custom built-ins and cabinetry throughout add storage space and Craftsman character. Most window coverings are included and the whole house and back porch are wired for sound with Polk speakers.
There is dual-zone HVAC heat/air, and whole-house humidifier and surge protector. The deep crawlspace is completely sealed, spray-foam insulated and includes an automatic whole-house dehumidifier.
The home is located in a premium school district (Meriwether Lewis, Henley, and Western Albemarle), and is within walking distance of the Farmington Hunt Club and Glass House Winery. It is on a popular road biking route and within walking distance of beautiful country lanes ideal for runners, walkers or horseback riders.

The land is a mix of open fields, mature hardwood forest, and has a stream. This homestead is ideal for a retired couple, gardeners, woodworkers, hobby farmers, bird and wildlife watchers, and people who enjoy nature and quiet country living. Due to the layout of the house, it is not suitable for large families.
