Turning onto this property gives you the sense of entering another world, far from the hectic pace of City living. Across from Motts Reservoir, and situated at the back of the property, looking down on the Rappahannock River, the noise abates and you are surrounded by a forest of one hundred year old trees, beautiful landscaping and the sound of birds. You get the sense you are at a Retreat, even though you are seven miles from Fredericksburg and fifty miles from D.C.As you enter the Foyer of the house, one side has mirrored doors to a large coat closet; the other side accommodates a wall of art. Looking straight ahead your eyes go to the large Bow Window at the back of the living room and the views beyond to tree tops, and down to a large in-ground pool and decks on either side. This home is truly a house of light. The interior of this lovely home is stunning ~ completely renovated in 2017-18. The Main Level kitchen has room for seating, the dining room easily accommodates seating for twelve. In fact this whole 2,100+ square feet of living space is quite spectacular.The 2,100 square feet Lower Level is amazing unto itself ~ open for entertaining, it has a full service kitchen, granite bar, dining space and an area of bookcases and a wall of built-in cabinets, and seating for a large family. Down the hallway is the Guest Bedroom, which opens to an outside porch, with steps down to the pool. Next is a 10~ x 7~ office with a large window with views of surrounding vegetation and an occasional turkey, raccoon, or deer sauntering by. Beyond the office is the 12~ x 14~ Spa Bath ~ all white tile, shower, vanity and a deep ~well Jacuzzi for relaxation after your swim or workout.The pool area with the 25,000 gallon in-ground pool and Gazebo is approximately twelve feet from the back end of the property, which drops down to the river.
