This beautiful brick home has all the feel of a remote country estate, yet is only 20 minutes from downtown Fredericksburg, and within striking distance of DC/Northern Virginia. The home has been enjoyed by the same family since 1986. Enjoy stunning views from the massive floor-to-ceiling windows in kitchen, living room, and master suite, overlooking mature hardwoods. While situated on approximately 6 acres, the property enjoys seclusion and privacy due to its adjoining Rapidan watershed property. Hunting Run Reservoir is directly across the street from the driveway, and affords beautiful views, and abundant boating and fishing opportunities. Hunting Run Creek lies adjacent to the property, and there is no other private land or structure between the home and the Rapidan River, just upstream from the confluence with the Rappahannock. Civil War buffs will be interested to note that both Lee's and Hooker's forces camped in what is now this home's yard at different times during the Chancellorsville campaign, and metal detecting opportunities abound.Since its construction in 1980, the home has had a number of improvements, including the finishing of the walk-out basement to include a large family room/den with French doors and a woodstove, and a full bathroom, bedroom, built-in shelving. Approximately 4 years ago, both full bathrooms on the upper level were renovated, new carpeting upstairs and hardwood flooring installed on the main level, and the home was completely painted inside at that time. The large, eat-in kitchen was also renovated during this period, with granite countertops, added cabinetry, new appliances, and several pocket doors. In addition, the front porch was completely renovated into the stately and luxuriant space it is now, perfect for lounging, reading a book, enjoying the solitude, or having a large family gathering, as it is able to accommodate many comfortably. The roof was also replaced during this period. The screened in porch is perfect for a relaxing meal, and the burbling of Hunting Run Creek can usually be heard from there.Interior comfort is provided by two HVAC units, Trane and Carrier, which can be supplemented in the winter by the woodstoves on every level of the home, including in the master bedroom. The oversized 24'x36' garage/shop includes a large number of built-in shelving and workbenches.
