About the Property

On a picturesque side street, bordering the Inn at Little Washington’s expansive gardens, this carefully restored Victorian farmhouse offers gracious entertaining spaces, lovely mountain and pastoral views, and the convenience and charm of 21st-century village living.

Set on a beautifully landscaped half acre, this large home features an elegant 2-story side porch and a spacious front porch. Inside there is ample room for entertaining, with a large living room, gourmet kitchen, breakfast area and spacious dining room, plus a den with a full bath. Upstairs is a large master suite, two more bedrooms, full guest bath and laundry.

Originally built in the 1860s, the house was enlarged in the 1900s and was fully restored and updated by the current owners, making it reminiscent of a French country retreat. Gleaming wide-plank heart pine floors, original millwork and high ceilings enhance the home’s charm. Four wood-stove-capable fireplaces serve the living room, den and two bedrooms. The master suite, encompassing the entire second floor of the original house, includes a Jacuzzi tub, spacious dressing area and generous closets. The back bedroom has a “secret” stairway to the kitchen.

The kitchen features granite countertops, maple cabinets and stainless-steel appliances (including Profile gas range and built-in microwave). The utility room off the kitchen provides additional pantry and storage space, and houses the central HVAC.

Embedded in the historical restoration are many high-tech features, such as a built-in surround sound stereo system and CAT-5 and cable TV wiring, with a lockable “control room” closet for electronics, offering the perfect setup for a home office.

The property, bordered in back by the Inn and in front by a meadow, is landscaped with boxwoods, rose of Sharon, shade trees and a rock garden. Ample storage is provided in two historic dependencies–a large outbuilding with root cellar, and another housing one of the original town wells. The house has central air conditioning and gas heat, served by a buried propane tank. It is also served by town water and sewer.

Piedmont Avenue is a quiet, picturesque road, ideal for walking or bike riding since it is not a town thoroughfare. The home is one block from Main Street’s charming shops and restaurants, two blocks from the Inn and the Theatre and 12 min to Shenandoah National Park.

With its large rooms, enjoyable outdoor spaces, great location and high-tech features within a historic renovation, this property is well suited for a B&B, weekend getaway, or full time residence for someone who enjoys small town living in a pastoral setting.

More about Little Washington:

The Town of Washington, the county seat of Rappahannock County, is nestled under Skyline Drive, 70 miles from Washington DC and 60 miles from Dulles Airport. It is notable for being surveyed by George Washington. In 1974 the town was listed on the National Historic Registry and the Virginia Landmarks Registry. The state considers the entire district to be a landmark area. The beautiful, pastoral setting of the surrounding countryside is preserved by 25-acre-minum zoning outside of towns.

The New York Times called Little Washington “A Refuge for Urbanites in Back Country Virginia,” but it is much more. http://www.nytimes.com/1999/09/26/realestate/a-refuge-for-urbanites-in-back-country-virginia.html

Rappahannock County is home to many great restaurants, including the world-renowned Inn at Little Washington, whose property borders this home. Other attractions include numerous wineries, craft breweries and a craft distillery, the Theatre, antique shops, and art galleries such as the River District Arts Center, which houses artist studios and galleries.
