“The whole grounds just look like a resort,” listing agent Nancy Tessman said of this 3.45-acre Hamilton property, which includes a five-bedroom home, a heated pool and mature trees on all sides. It was recently listed for $920,000.
Part of the Stone Eden Farm subdivision, this home sits just a couple of turns away from Colonial Highway, offering easy access to the downtown areas of Hamilton, Purcellville and Leesburg. But while on the property, these nearby towns feel worlds away, as the dense forestry surrounding the home provide ultimate privacy.
“It’s so quiet,” Tessman told the Times-Mirror. “They have a stream on the property that baby deer show up at; they have resident owls that come every year and live there.”
The home itself was built in 2002, though the current owners have consistently updated it over the years. Most recently, the house received a fresh coat of paint on all three levels on the inside, a power-washing on the outside, newly refinished hardwood floors, and new carpet on the stairs and in the bedroom closets.
A covered, wraparound porch with a bench swing welcomes guests into the home, leading into the hardwood-floored main level. Sleek molding and trim work line the walls of the sitting room and formal dining room that lie beyond the foyer, windows on all sides letting in a flood of greenery-tinted sunlight.
From the dining room, guests can conveniently enter the kitchen, where a family’s designated culinary artisan can enjoy counter space on nearly all sides, as well as the aesthetic flair of stainless-steel appliances and a glass tile backsplash. This flows openly into a large family room with a gas-burning fireplace, which in turn offers access to two outside decks.
Four of the home’s bedrooms are on the upper level along with three bathrooms, including the owner’s bathroom, which was updated this year and includes a granite-topped double-vanity, a corner soaking tub and a glassed-in shower. The hallway bathroom — which two of the upstairs bedrooms share — was also updated this year, while the third bathroom is en-suite.
A fifth bedroom, as well as a full in-law suite, can be found in the finished basement. Guests, family or renters staying here can enjoy their own full kitchen, den, dining area and living area, as well as walk-out access to the back patio. Also on the lower level is an enclosed home theater, perfect for indoor time with family and friends.
On sunny days, however, the pool deck is hard to beat as a hangout spot. The 3- to 11-foot-deep pool features an automatic cover, so keeping it cared for is a breeze. And plenty of room for lounge seating is available on the surrounding deck, as well as a covered, tiki-style bar with a grill and an outdoor-friendly television setup. This area and the rest of the property are surrounded by such stimulating flora as blueberry bushes, pear and apple trees.
Finally, residents can enjoy both the lack of homeowner’s association fees and access to the public water supply. For more information on this listing, contact Tessman at 703-328-5306 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
