Bid online* to own this lovely 3-level, 5,232 square foot luxury home situated on a hill overlooking sparkling Cunningham Creek. Enjoy a stunning pastoral view across the creek of a loftier wooded hillside and tranquil farm field. 15.33 private acres surround the home with 3 of those acres cleared with a three-bay stable to host your llamas, donkeys, cattle, chickens, or horse! Peach, apple, cherry, and plum trees are planted. Trails abound for hiking, ATVs, wildlife watching, hunting, fishing, or swimming. This beautiful custom home is wrapped in plywood! 2-level columns enhance the front porch with its maintenance free decking. Beveled glass accents the front door, and the two-story foyer, housing stairs and hallways to all three levels. Main level flooring is oak hardwood throughout. Kitchen features extensive cabinetry and counter space. Large kitchen island is a breakfast bar and conversation station, as the kitchen flows into a large family room. French Doors access another side deck. Vaulted ceilings with skylights arch overhead. An enormous pantry serves the kitchen. Entertain brilliantly in the kitchen, family area or Formal Dining Room. Continue into the large light-filled Living Room graced by numerous windows and French Doors opening to an enormous deck. Step down to an Amish-built hot tub deck! Past the living room, you’ll find the three main-level bedrooms. The generous second bedroom was designed with a 32-inch door to accommodate multi-generational living with its own bath shared with the large third bedroom. Primary Bedroom overlooks the pastoral backdrop. The tiled Primary Bath has a 6-foot soaking tub shower, along with his and hers lavatories! Ascend the oak stairway to upper level and there’s that view again and yet another full deck through the French Doors! Another sitting area serves two upstairs bedrooms, one of them big enough to be a primary bedroom. The third full bath serves this level and pull-down attic stair access a fully planked attic. The 1,776 finished square feet on the basement level are floored with luxury vinyl, and the Great Room, the basement’s primary feature, is graced on one end by a beautiful wooden bar. There are multiple seating and table areas, and the room is divided by supporting columns. Lighting is recessed and set in acoustic drop tiles with LED being used to keep the room cool while well lit! Painted foundation accents add more cheeriness, and French Doors once again open to the beautiful pastoral panorama outside. A poured concrete patio tastefully contours the rear of the building connected by a sidewalk leading to the front exterior of the home providing separate private access. There’s a partial kitchen with cabinetry, refrigeration, and microwave. Family and church brunches have been held in this space with 20 - 75 folks in attendance! (There’s plenty of parking on the driveway!) This unique home is out of town but close enough to shopping, dining, and cultural attractions in Charlottesville, wineries in The Blue Ridge and commute routes to both Charlottesville and Richmond. And estate homes are being built all around the area, while expensive SUVs dot the roads, so continued appreciation seems likely!
