About the Property
A bucolic country road that meanders along the Robinson River, a renowned trout stream, leads you to Middle Hill and some of the finest views to be found. From the riverbank, the property gently rises up to a small knoll that looks out at the valley below and the mountains beyond. The home site has enough elevation to get stunning views, but is still protected by the hills that surround it. The 23.8 acre property offers a nice mixture of fields and woods with a gentle roll as the land transitions from the lowland valley to the mountainside. The home is a thoughtfully designed four bedroom, three and a half bath rambler that was built to take every advantage of its fabulous location. The property is comprised of two parcels which are both being sold with the home. With high speed internet available from Virginia Broadband, this is the perfect place to work from home in a beautiful setting.
A paved driveway leads you up to the home where a porch with some of the best mountain views in Madison County will greet you. Double Top Mountain is directly in front of you while Blakey Ridge, Graves and Old Tom among other peaks provide texture and views in virtually all directions. From the front porch, the home opens into a long foyer that delineates the private living quarters from the public areas of the home.
At one end of the foyer sits an expansive family room with a large bank of windows that highlight the breathtaking view. With a western exposure, the sunsets can be quite amazing. A wood burning fireplace sits at the far end of the family room ready to provide warmth and comfort on a cold winter night. The owners thoughtfully built a pass-through door next to the fireplace so wood can be stacked in the garage and accessed from the family room. A large eat-in kitchen is situated behind the family room. The kitchen looks out at a large backyard surrounded by trees before the land slopes up Carpenter Mountain. A covered porch, perfect for grilling, and a large patio can be accessed by French doors from the kitchen. Sitting off of the kitchen is a mudroom and half bath as well as access to the two car oversized garage.
On the other end of the kitchen is a formal dining room which looks out at the pastoral backyard. Next to the dining room is the living room. A stately set of built in bookshelves flank one end of the living room. Double pocket doors separate the dining room from the living room. When everything is open, the house has a great flow that is perfect for entertaining, but the home can easily be closed off to allow for different activities in each room.
The private side of the home features a stately master bedroom with the same incredible views of Double Top. A large master closet, also with a view, and master bath complete the master bedroom. The two other first floor bedrooms look out at the lawn and woods offering a feeling of privacy and peace for their denizens. The first floor is completed by a laundry room and a shared bath for the two bedrooms.
The lower level of the home features a 39’ x 25’ game room which offers plenty of space for a myriad of activities. Two sets of French doors lead out to a patio off of the game room. Built in Walnut cabinets line the walls and a small wet bar are enhanced features. Behind is a large workshop area, complete with a wood stove, a craft room with plenty of cabinet space and several smaller private nooks that make great office space. The lower level is completed with a light filled guest suite complete with a full bath.
The property also features a small 2 stall stable with a tack area, hay storage and a workshop area with overhead garage door. Home has deluxe liquid cooled whole house generator.
