Residence Photos


The nearly 10 acres of open land has a wooded perimeter on the northern and southern boundaries which nicely screens out neighbors.  The front lawn acreage frames the magnificent view of Old Rag Mountain and the Blue Ridge in the distance.  There is extensive landscaping at the property entrance, along the entryway walk, and various copses underplanted with flowers and ground cover.   A side garden contains a small formal parterre.

The nearly 1 acre fenced back yard is ideal for dogs and children and allows plenty of exercise in an enclosed perimeter.  In addition to a double allee of Crape Myrtles flanked with garden benches, there is a large back deck off of the living room with two seating areas.   One features a pergola overhead and the other a grill and dining area for outdoor dinner parties.

Most of the rest of the acreage is kept in a hay field to provide sweeping pastoral views.   This land is ideally suited for small livestock as well.  With the addition of some fencing, goats, sheep, or horses would feel right at home.   The gentle slope to the land makes it an ideal location for a small orchard or vineyard as well.
