About the Property
Nestled in the woods with stunning views of the Blue Ridge, Dogwood Ridge is one of the finest homes around. This stately 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom house is close to virtually everything, but feels like it is miles away. The home is packed with amenities including a eat-in gourmet kitchen with heart pine floors, formal living and dining rooms, a large family room and a separate apartment above the garage. Like the home, the 5 acre lot is filled with amenities including a rear patio with a pergola, a gazebo and a in ground pool…all with amazing mountain views.
From the governor’s drive, a brick walk leads you to the classic Virginia portico with white columns. The home opens to an expansive foyer. On the left double glass doors lead to a 18’ x 19’ living room that features a wood burning fireplace. Sitting behind the living room is an office with built-in book cases. With a full bath right down the hall, this area could easily be converted to a main floor primary bedroom.
On the other side of the foyer is the formal dining room. Like the living room, double glass doors allow the room to be closed off without making the foyer feel dark. The dining room also opens to the gourmet kitchen which runs behind it. The kitchen features a large center island, double ovens, plenty of counter space and abundant storage. A dining nook is located off to the side with a commanding view of the backyard. Next to the kitchen is the 17’ x 26’ family room. The family room features a second fireplace and a hidable wet bar. A sliding glass door offers easy access to the back deck. A hallway leads to the side load garage with a laundry room and a half bath tucked off to the side. The oversized two car garage features a cedar closet for storage.
The second floor of the home features a large primary suite with plenty of closet space. The second bedroom looks out on the mountains beyond while the third bedroom looks to the woods in front of the home. These two bedrooms share a full bathroom.
Currently, the apartment can be accessed either through the family room or the third bedroom, but it would be quite easy to put in stairs to the apartment balcony. The apartment features a living room, a kitchenette and a small bedroom. It is perfect for long term guests who need a little privacy, a caretaker or anyone else who needs their own space.
The lower level of the home features a large workshop, a game room with a pool table that will convey and a 1,000 bottle temperature controlled wine cellar. For additional utility, the house has a whole house generator. Comcast internet is available.
Mature trees screen the front of the home from Courthouse Mountain Lane as well as any neighbors that may be around. A governor’s drive delivers guests to the front door while the side access garage is perfect for the residents. The entire area behind the home has been nicely landscaped to take advantage of the surroundings and its stunning view. A series of decks and patios run the length of the house with access from several rooms inside. One of the decks features a pergola that breaks the sun just enough to enjoy sitting outside on even a warm summer day. A gazebo, perfect for reflecting on the day, sits to one side of the yard. The in-ground pool sits behind the house and has, perhaps, the best view on the entire property.
Despite its perfect privacy, route 29 is only 5 minutes away. For major shopping, Culpeper is only 20 minutes away and Charlottesville is only 45 minutes away. If you want to enjoy the boutique shopping in Sperryville it is 25 minutes away. If you want to fish in the Hughes, Robinson or Rose rivers they too are about 20 minutes away. Similarly, you can reach the Old Rag Trailhead, White Oak Canyon Trailhead or any of the endless other trails that dot the park in about 30 minutes.
