You will absolutely love this pristine farmhouse on a lush 1.6 Acre lot! Excellent condition- ideal for full time residence (5 bedrooms and 6.5 baths!) but easy to manage as a weekender. This home features a Main floor bedroom and all 5 bedrooms have private baths! Experience country living by walking to Wheatland Springs Brewery on Saturday morning and enjoying the the Saturday Farmers Market. Always dreamed of getting in the Saddle? Wheatland Farms is also a short walk away where they offer lesson to the novice through the experienced! This is a beautifully restored historic home! The original owners ( most likely German settlers) hand-carved the year they built the home into a stone about halfway up the chimney: 1836. The interior of this home is exquisite: Sun splashed with light featuring wood floors (some of which are original and reportedly from the German Black Forest), recessed lights and windows at every turn. You will love the custom craftsman artistry that is displayed throughout this house- some from the 21st century and some from the original German Settlers who built this home! Here you will find hand-milled hardwood cherry shelving, cabinets and a solid cherry mantel surrounding the ORIGINAL fireplace (if you peer up into it, you'll see that there is still a wrought-iron bar where the early settlers hung their cast iron cooking pots over the fire!). The custom exposed beams in the original farmhouse are solid walnut. The new addition to the main floor and recreation rooms have matching beams that are maple wrapped hardwood. The original attic section is a must-see: also all original heart pine hardwoods from Germany as that was a part of the living quarters in the 1800s. A subterranean wine cellar in the basement has been enjoyed by the owners, with the right design, you can easily store 1,500 to 2,000 bottles !.The utilities are ideal- Geothermal: efficient, clean green energy and highly effective. There is also an attic furnace and A/C unit. Hardiplank siding on the house is not only very durable but it provides strong insulation. Triple-ply windows. The spring house has an artesian well that is still fully functional and was a part of the original 1830s build. It is one of only a few in Loudoun county that are still operational. The rear porch features teak flooring and is ideal for dinner parties or just reading a book. The open lush yard has magnificent exposure and produces wonderful vegetables and has been a favorite for the families chickens. ( Darling Chicken House Conveys.) Do not miss this one of a kind gem!
