EXCEPTIONAL NEW LISTING!!!!!
Embraced by exceptional natural beauty, Hawthorn is set on 22.62 acres just west of the historic village of Upperville. This romantic estate offers a private sanctuary with every amenity to enjoy country life.
Stacked stonewalls and handsome wrought iron gates welcome family and guests while a symphony of seasonal colors, from early spring daffodils and delicate cherry blossoms to reflections of autumn leaves in the picturesque bass pond, unfold along the entry drive. Sweeping lawns and gardens, hardwoods, meadows and views of the Blue Ridge delight the senses along the way.
The distinguished Federal fieldstone and stucco main residence is an exceptional home for formal and casual living and entertaining. Built in 1980, it features amenities to enhance today’s lifestyle as well as the sought-after high ceilings and finely crafted millwork of a bygone era. The rooms are generous, bright and airy. On the main level, an elegant living room with three exposures, a fireplace and built-ins and a formal dining room with bay window grace each side of the broad center hall. A charming country kitchen adjoins the family room with richly toned wood beams, a fieldstone fireplace and built-in speakers, and leads to the flagstone terrace. Here, soothed by the gentle babbling of Panther Creek and amid radiant, manicured English boxwoods and perennials, outdoor gatherings both large and small, unfold throughout the year. The upper level is a serene and spacious retreat, which offers four bedrooms, each with bucolic vistas, and three full bathrooms. Ample closets, hardwood flooring, and double-paned windows ensure privacy and comfort. The lower level features a second family room with fireplace, a movie projector and screen, full bathroom and walk-out.
Tucked away, just beyond a romantic rose and boxwood garden and above Panther Skin creek, the heated swimming pool may be found. This inviting fully fenced, private haven is adorned with stacked stone walls, resplendent perennials and an outdoor grilling station.
