Though deceptively close to Route 7, this four-bedroom Hamilton home and its forested 2.76-acre plot offer privacy and verdancy aplenty, making for a splendid combination of idyllic and commuter-friendly. It is available to own for $825,000.
“It’s located in an incredible neighborhood,” listing agent Jaime Craddock told the Times-Mirror. “This property is on a cul-de-sac, and it has a really incredible yard with views, besides a gorgeous house.”
Built in 2005 and having undergone many recent updates, this property makes for a cozy day-rounddwelling both inside and out, while its proximity to the highway provides convenient access to Purcellville in the west and Leesburg in the east. All three Loudoun County Public Schools within its district are 10 minutes or less by car, and you can make it to Washington Dulles International Airport in just under a half hour.
The home’s friendly, two-story façade and clean-cut landscaping — including a row of neatly trimmed hedges lining the covered front porch — both provide guests with a warm welcome and belie the open-aired splendor of the nearly 5,000-square-foot interior. On either side of the two-story, hardwood-floored foyer, one will find a carpeted sitting room and a generously sized study. A formal dining room sits adjacent to the former and leads into the large kitchen.
Here, culinary novices and master chefs alike will rejoice in the wraparound granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances and center island with open-flame cooktop. However, the true highlight of the kitchen area — and, in Craddock’s view, one of the home’s standout features — is the adjacent breakfast room, utterly luminous thanks to the high, panoramic windows that surround it.
“[My family] would probably be using those spaces a lot,” Craddock said. “We would never use the dining room — we would use the breakfast room. It’s just gorgeous.”
Opposite the kitchen is the large, carpeted family room, which includes a stone-faced fireplace and looks onto the back deck, which one can access from the breakfast room. A portion of the deck sits beneath a convenient ceiling fan and within the shelter of bug-proof screening, ideal for keeping cool, dry and bite-free on even the least agreeable summer day; the other half offers stairway access to the fenced backyard.
All four bedrooms are immediately accessible from the upstairs landing, with a set of double-doors leading into the impressive master suite. A regal tray ceiling dwells above the main bedroom, which leads through a two-columned threshold into a pleasant sitting room. Two walk-in closets and a large bathroom accompany this suite, the latter boasting a double-vanity, glassed-in shower and large corner tub. A second full bath services the other three bedrooms, while a third can be found on the finished lower level.
High-tech and high-class entertainment awaits on this level, much of which is finished with glossy hardwoods. The billiards nook comes complete with a Tiffany-style chandelier, while another corner of the recreation area includes a full bar, which boasts a beer tap and enough wall space for a flat-screen TV. An even grander entertainment experience, however, awaits in the fully tricked-out home theater, which — like the whole home — is wired for surround-sound.
“That’s the first thing I’d want to experience,” Craddock said of the theater. “I’d like to cozy up with my family and watch a nice movie.”
