Imagine a four-square Virginia farmhouse updated to 21st century sleek perfection and then place it in a stunning setting, and you have a good idea of what awaits you at the Fodderstack Farmhouse. This elegant home is sited on a rolling landscape of mountain and pastoral views not far from the village of Flint Hill and a short drive from the town of Little Washington on scenic Fodderstack Road.
The traditional farmhouse exterior of pebbledash stucco and board and batten, gives way to an interior which seamlessly blends a traditional room layout with a contemporary sensibility. The addition to the original farmhouse incorporates large windows to bring the mountain and pond views into the house. Decking extends the living space into the outdoors. A state of the art (Sonos) electronics system coordinates sound, security and temperature control from multiple locations. High end quality fixtures and finishes are evident throughout.
Large barn/garage – large space suitable for barn, car, storage, studio or workshop. Lower level for storing lawn equipment
Small log cabin – frame of antique log cabin which can be assembled on site or moved to a new location.
The grounds consist of a large backyard sloping down to a 1/4 acre pond. Beyond the pond is a large hayfield which can be used for hay or pasturage for livestock. There are several specimen trees planted around the house and landscaping in the front yard which accents the architecture and also helps screen the roadway and parking area from the front yard. There is ample garden space and room for outdoor entertaining. The same building restrictions which restrict any structures on the hayfield also apply to adjacent properties, thus affording excellent protection of the mountain views and privacy.
