Welcome to one of the most admired properties on Diamond Hill. This one-owner, custom built, L-Shaped Cape is meticulously maintained and cared for. The beautiful stone pillared entrance and stonewalls create cherished privacy and grandeur.
The most significant features of the outside of this home are a prominent red shingled roof and an exquisite Cupola tower. Both of these were inspired by President George Washington’s Mt. Vernon mansion which is one of the most iconic 18th Century homes in America. The cupola is an exact replica of Washington’s own design with the dove of peace weathervane on top. The dove with an olive branch in its mouth was a symbol of peace after the American Revolution.
The grounds offer an expansive, flat backyard with a blanket of rich, green grass with decorative trellis. There is a private deck on the side ideal for warm weather entertaining. The property has beautiful perennials, including exquisite blue hydrangeas along the side fence. The expansive driveway offers extra parking for visiting guests. The two car garage is climate controlled year round.
As you enter this beautiful home, there is a staircase on the right with an elegant oriental runner on the stairs.
You step into a spacious living room with inviting gas fireplace, built in cabinet, and gleaming hardwoods that are featured throughout this home. To the left of the front entrance is a guest lavette and a private first floor master bedroom with full bath. If you are looking to down size or want to live on one level, this home would have everything you need.
The rest of the first floor has a very open, contemporary floor plan, perfect for entertaining. The kitchen has an island with white cabinets and near by dining area. The formal dining room has a dramatic cathedral ceiling, a balcony overlooking from the second floor and a mirrored wall for elegant dining. Just outside the dining room is a beautifully designed family room or library with beautiful custom built in book case framed with decorative, colonial dentil molding and a cathedral ceiling with windows above. There is a nearby lavette and separate laundry room for convenience.
The second floor has parquet flooring throughout with two spacious bedrooms, another full bath and a glassed-in office or sitting area between the two bedrooms.
There is an abundance of light streaming into this home with lots of windows, all newly replaced with white plantation shutters. The white walls and white trim throughout offer a desirable neutral palette for decorating.
This home has every possible amenity with central air throughout, an alarm system, walk-out basement and underground sprinklers. This enchanting Cape set back off Diamond Hill Road is a perfect escape for comfortable living and to enjoy with your family and friends.
