Extraordinary 19+ acre estate just 20 minutes south of Charlottesville with an abundance of wildlife, a barn centered among 3 fenced pastures and 2 running streams. Custom built luxury home with a brilliant passive solar design using only the finest of materials & exceeding code specifications. The unprecedented quality of craftsmanship is exhibited throughout the home right down to the cherry trim actually harvested from the property. Complimenting this passive solar design is a completely open floor plan with cathedral ceilings, wide plank hardwood and slate flooring throughout and casement windows bringing in all of the natural light and beauty of the outdoors. The gourmet kitchen will please any cook connoisseur equipped with granite counters, custom cherry cabinetry & premium appliances to include a Thermador gas range with convection oven. The flow from the kitchen to the great room is perfect for entertaining with scenic views through the wall of windows facing south to Fan Mountain with seasonal views of even the UVA observatory. Off of the great room is the octagonal room, one of Jeffersons favorite architectural designs, currently being used as a handsome study with built in shelving. The elegant owners suite has an attached luxury bathroom, a walk-in cedar lined closet, a gas stove and provides a private entry to the south facing deck for captivating views. The walk-out lower level is impressive with 9ft ceilings, plenty of windows, another octagonal room and provides immense potential for future living space and quarters with rough-in plumbing for a future bathroom. A separate panel box has been installed ready for a whole house generator. Through the French doors an outdoor shower and a rain water collection system are already in place. With a combination of the rich all natural Cypress siding the covered front porch, deck and screened porch have been constructed using Trex Decking materials creating a virtually maintenance free exterior.
