Western Loudoun's signature greenery and quaint mid-century architecture collide on this five-plus-acre Bluemont property, which just entered the market for $989,000.
"The environment on the property is just so beautiful and peaceful," listing agent Melissa Donnelly told the Times-Mirror. "The two relaxing porches, one on the side and one on the back, make this the perfect spot to enjoy all of the peacefulness and wilderness that the mountain has to offer."
While at no lack for connection to nature, the 4,284-square-foot, three-bedroom home boasts plenty of visual and environmental appeal on its own. The contemporary spirit of this 1955 construction remains steady, even after having undergone more than $350,000 in renovations in the past two years.
These "personal touches," as Donnelly calls them, are evident from the moment one approaches the front door, itself a custom addition. Several recent additions can be found in the kitchen, its backsplash comprised of tiles handmade by a local artisan, a new, stainless-steel range hood hovering above the open-flame stovetop. White cabinetry, top-tier appliances and a massive, hardwood-topped center island combine to make a paradisaical playground for the chef in the family — not to mention the massive walk-in pantry and the wine storage room at the other end of the home.
With an open-concept design that seamlessly connects the kitchen, dining area, family room and recreation room, the entire main floor is "very family-friendly," per Donnelly. "You have people playing pool in one room and hanging out, other people could be by the fireplace. It's great for entertaining," she said. Further, those wishing to get some exercise while unexposed to the elements can use the home gym, which was just finished last year.
The expansive master bedroom has its own fireplace and enjoys the same rustic hardwood flooring that runs throughout the main living area. The attached bathroom is nothing short of regal: Its heated floors are covered with honed marble and a large, mosaic-style medallion; the footed tub and aromatherapy steam shower afford the owners maximum relaxation. Additional living quarters — and an opportunity for steady income — can be found in the small cottage on the other end of the property, which has its own single-car garage.
