The house has a 1970s vibe that the current owners have skillfully played up in their recent renovation. 21st century touches are beautifully incorporated with the 1970s exposed beams and larger picture windows. The resulting style is a very clean, fresh take on a traditional family house that makes it a low maintenance weekend retreat for a family and their guests. An open floor plan means that all public areas of the house – living, dining, and kitchen all open to a long and wide deck that captures the magnificent outdoor views. These rooms all open on to one another so that entertaining is a breeze. The bedrooms are private retreats from the rest of the house and service areas are convenient, yet out of site. A side screened porch further extends the indoor/outdoor space.
Large Workshop/Garage – large building suitable for parking two cars and storage for other equipment. A side shed roof offers additional storage and covered space.
Small log shed – This small log building would make an ideal child’s playhouse, chicken coop, potting shed or garden outbuilding. It can easily be moved to another location.
Rockedge combines stunning mountain views from the house with complete privacy from neighbors and yet easy access to the DC metro area and the delights of Rappahannock County. There is plenty of room to indulge in whatever country pursuits tempt your fancy, but the manageable acreage is ideal for a low maintenance weekender lifestyle.
