Three Meadows Farm
Three Meadows Farm is a shimmering gem of a country property. It wraps up everything one could want in a country home – sparkling mountain views, simple sophistication, cedar siding, handcrafted interiors, great outdoor spaces, endearing charm, an ideal location and perfect privacy.
The home began as a simple weekend retreat in 1991. In 2005 it was thoroughly remodeled with an Arts & Crafts sensibility and an emphasis on easy country living. The owners have continually upgraded and improved the home and property. In 2018 they added a multi-level deck that wraps around three sides of the home providing outdoor spaces where you can always be in the sun or shade depending on the time and your whims. There are large spaces for visiting, a covered area for eating and lots of little nooks for relaxing and enjoying the views.
The kitchen/dining area anchors the home. Handmade cherry cabinets, Pietra De Cordova counters and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances are artfully arranged in a compact kitchen that emphasizes design and efficiency. Adjacent is an ample dining room with views to the mountains through the glass French doors and there is countertop dining for quick meals. Good natural light permeates the home.
The living room is a very comfortable space with a stone fireplace with an efficient wood-burning insert, richly grained heart of pine floors and handcrafted built-in bookcases. There is access to the rear deck through glass French doors.
The generous main-floor master suite feels like an old Adirondack lodge with wood paneled walls and ceiling, big log beams, warm wood floors and an upper sleeping loft. There are windows on three walls and access to the rear deck via French doors. A cast-iron woodstove adds special ambience on cold winter nights.
The upper level has two bedrooms with a Jack and Jill bathroom. One of these bedrooms has been remodeled into a wonderful private library room lined with handmade bookshelves and a reading table in the center.
The property includes an oversized two-bay garage that has plenty of room for several cars plus workshop space and storage shelves. Above is a two-bedroom, one bathroom apartment.
An old outbuilding has been cleverly repurposed as a cedar lined sauna cabin.
The 10-acre property also includes a wooden tractor shed with rolling barn doors and a separate barn building for storage. Below the front meadow is a small pond that is home to a summer time symphony of frogs, birds and wildlife.
Three Meadows Farm is located one mile west of the village of Flint Hill where there are three popular restaurants and a couple of shops. It is only about 20 minutes from the town of Front Royal where there are more restaurants, bakeries, and interesting shops. Front Royal has most of the standard big box stores as well as multiple grocery stores and a hospital, along with easy access to I-66. Located 75 minutes from Washington, DC, it is an easy drive for a weekend getaway yet it feels a world away.
