Historic Stone Country Estate
This renovated 1890s stone house, with a backyard pool and all the modern amenities, is perched on an 8 acre high knoll with incredible mountain views and is located just minutes from Charlottesville.
Stone walls embrace the pool in a huge delightful natural setting with huge Yoshino and Weeping Cherry Trees. Massive trees surround the house on all sides providing further enhancements to the ideal setting. Thoughts and thousands of spring and summer flowering bulbs adorn the gardens in the many sunny areas between the trees.
The natural beauty of the property had been enhanced with beds of perennial flowers, numerous native tree species, a slate of walk-up to the home and a low stone wall.
Inside the 4 bedroom home, the solid hardwood floors have matured gracefully as well, giving off the deep glowing tone of well aged wine. The massive stone construction has a beautiful interior stucco finish, which is a perfect match for all of the natural construction elements.
In 1890 skilled artisans created the handsome stonework of this elegant county home. 133 years later the solid stone walls have taken on a deep earthy tone, further accentuating the long-lost craftsmanship that went into the construction of the home.
The home rests on a hill overlooking the surrounding mountains. A natural spring provides pure mountain water for the pool in the backyard. The home has easy access to Charlottesville, Waynesboro and the Wintergreen Resort as well as the hiking trails of the Blue Ridge and canoeing and kayaking on the Rockfish River.
The property has rich, fertile soil and an abundance of year-round sunlight that can produce a bounty of vegetables from any number of large garden spots.
