Property Photo


Exceptional in a word, that's what this property is. Situated on (pending subdivision) 7.16 scenic acres, this customized and stylized French Country Manor home is the gateway to the desirable Fairville/Stockford Road area of country manor estates. The breathtaking beauty of this 5 Bedroom/4 Bath 3 Powder room home begins as you meander up the sweeping driveway past the slate patio that overlooks the property, swinging around to the stately front entrance of this French Lorraine brick home with a Normandy tile roof. The home, built in 1965, was lovingly and thoughtfully laid out in the French Country Manor style where symmetry is the guiding principal. In keeping with these guidelines, each room in the home is sized using a 3:2:1 ratio. For instance, the living area is 30 feet long, by 20 feet wide and ceilings are 10 feet high. The original owners of the home spent 5 years planning and building the home and gathering resources to use in the home. As you enter the home you are immediately met with the gorgeous hand crafted walnut parquet floor - mesmerized until you look up and see the wrought iron and ormolu (gold over bronze) handcrafted curved staircase. You will find the ormolu hardware throughout the home. From here, off to the right, is the Master Retreat area. This area is a true private space - a cozy and beautiful Master Suite, dressing area and Bath and then down a short hallway is the most beautiful study completely wainscoted with waxed and imported memel pine. The large fireplace in the study is a welcoming detail among many in this room. The French doors lead you out to the slate patio where you can relax and look out over the rolling hills. French doors are the windows of this home where one would expect a window, you actually find a French door and this is the case throughout the first floor area - with over 20 doors in all. Behind the staircase in the foyer is the previously mentioned Living Room area where the current owners have artfully divided the space using furniture. This room is wainscoted throughout, with an imported Italian marble mantel fireplace. Back through the foyer is the formal dining room with built in corner cabinets from 18th century England. From the dining area is the kitchen which was completely renovated in 2015. A butler's pantry is the entry to the large, bright and welcoming kitchen. No detail missed in the kitchen - state of the art appliances, commercial gas range, imported zinc range hood, marble countertops, coffered ceilings and again the French doors giving you the most beautiful view. Off of the kitchen area is a breezeway/mudroom that leads to the oversized 3 car garage. Upstairs you are greeted by a beautiful hallway flanked on either end (symmetry!) by 4 bedrooms in total. Two bedrooms are ensuite and a third bath easily accommodates the other two bedrooms. The current owners have thoughtfully utilized unused attic space and converted it into two additional rooms on this level, adding a laundry room and a playroom. From the upstairs hallway, you can access a spiral staircase that leads you back down to the kitchen and then also down to the basement area. The basement is large with high ceilings and a walkout. Lots of storage space here and opportunity to convert space into wine cellar, craft room etc. The beauty and comfort of this home is unparalleled and only enhanced by the lovely grounds. There are 2 additional land parcels being offered as separate listings ~ Lot 2- 6 Acre parcel and Lot 3 ~ 3 Acre parcel. A very rare opportunity to own a home of this stature in one of the most desirable spots in the area.
