This iconic c. 1889 Victorian house, nestled in the historic hamlet of Orlean, reflects the best of past and present. Its 2021 interior renovation, modernized the floorplan, reimagined the kitchen and added new Marvin windows, electrical and HVAC systems. Timeless details and the exterior's classic design were preserved along with the primary bedroom's screened porch and main level covered patios. It is the best of both worlds.
Bright and sunny throughout, brand new hardwood floors blend with original wood, emphasizing neutral soft white and gray finishes. Dramatic chandeliers and fixtures are thoughtfully placed. The first level offers a formal entry, gracious living room with bay window, separate dining room and powder room.
The spacious, all new gourmet kitchen features a fireplace with original Eastlake mantel, substantial breakfast bar with marble countertop and storage, white cabinets, farmhouse sink and stainless steel appliances. There are separate mud and laundry rooms, and a charming stone courtyard is accessed from the covered patio off the kitchen. The second level en suite primary bedroom, two bedrooms and one full bath are fully updated. The flow of the house allows for plenty of public space while providing lots of spots to read, work and rest.
Its private, idyllic site covers 1.4 acres and includes a vintage barn, fenced yard and generous space with potential for additions of gardens, swimming pool and other features. The convenient driveway leads to an ample, newly graveled parking area. Southwest facing, the property hosts mature landscaping and sweeping Blue Ridge Mountain views. A rare opportunity to live in the in the heart of Virginia's Piedmont region, the Orlean Market and local retail are steps away. Washington, DC is 50 miles to the east, and the towns of Marshall and Warrenton are 10-15 minutes by car.
