A rare find in Rappahannock! Nestled in the heart of the historic Sperryville village at the base of Shenandoah National Park, this property boasts TWO residences on one parcel! The circa 1830 rural gothic farmhouse offers rustic charm while the late 19th century barn has been completely reimagined into a dramatic residence. Live in one & rent out the other!
First, explore the magnificent transformation of the circa 1890 barn. Originally built as stables for the local ordinary down the street, it has been converted into a spectacular home w/ ceilings soaring almost 17 feet high. Slide open the barn doors and you are greeted with the front entry, welcoming you to a truly modern home. Original barn beams were retained, but everything else in the interior is completely new! The chic, open living kitchen blends black and white shaker kitchen cabinetry with leathered granite, sleek quartz, polished brass & white oak accents. Brand new energy efficient LG appliances round out the kitchen package. Relax in the massive living area and cozy up in front of the designer wood burning fireplace. Custom lighting is featured throughout the barn, from subtle accents lights around the perimeter to Legrand SmartHome Dimmers that can be controlled from your phone. Truly an experience for all of your senses, Sonos Architectural Speakers envelope the room to create a chill vibe or set the stage for a dance party. The thoughtfully selected glass railings on the upper loft help maintain the airy feel of the space & offer a perfect vantage point to see the open floor plan. Head back towards the bedroom for even more drama: the ensuite bath has a monolithic glass shower w/ the tallest rainfall shower you've ever seen. Floating custom vanity, quartz countertops, Kohler fixtures, & black factory-style window grid round out the design forward bathroom. The private rear bedroom includes a wall of closets w/ ample storage, more living space & a continuation of the sophisticated lighting throughout. Below the loft is a second full bathroom for guests as well as a laundry & mechanical room w/ extra storage. The systems of the home are completely modern & include hydronic radiant heated floors, new water filtration systems w/ UV, new water softener & new Trane HVAC central air.
The picturesque farmhouse, originally built as a one-room log cabin, was expanded to include a second level in 1872. In 2006 the house was completely modernized: historic details such as the wide-plank heart pine flooring & original wavy glass windows were carefully preserved. The spacious living room, crowned w/ exposed ceiling beams, accesses the classic country kitchen featuring sage green cabinets and quartz countertops. From the kitchen window atop the farm sink you can gaze over a spacious backyard. Upstairs, the primary bedroom includes a large walk-in closet and the adjacent full bath boasts beadboard wainscoting and a perfect skylight to capture morning sun. The upstairs den can easily function as a second bedroom or office and is flooded with light on three sides. Downstairs, the mudroom & powder room are just off the kitchen & accessible from a large side porch, perfect for enjoying cocktails on a quiet summer evening.
To boot, the farmhouse also features a brand new Trane HVAC central air system.
