Privacy, Spectacular Blue Ridge Mountain Views and Gorgeous Sunsets! Perfectly sited, this idyllic country home enjoys tremendous privacy and views of the Shenandoah National Park. A highly sought after location, this property’s 35 acres, as well as most of the surrounding land, are protected by easements. Designed for the views, this charming home features wide porches on the front, side and back of the house, as well as large windows and glass doors. Originally built as a 2-bedroom cottage in 1984, it was beautifully expanded in 2006 to the over 5,000 sq. ft. home of today. Special emphasis was placed on having a home to host family gatherings and create beautiful memories. From the foyer, one is drawn to the stunning 2-story living room with floor to ceiling stone fireplace, large windows and sliding door to the side porch. A wide hallway featuring a wall of windows and glass doors creates openness and a wonderful entertainment flow between the living room, dining room and kitchen. From the kitchen, a hallway leads past the laundry room and powder room and opens into the handsome 2-story library/office with balcony and custom cabinetry and shelving on 3 walls. From this room one also has access to a small deck with storage closet and the front parking area. The perfectly designed hallway provides a keyhole view of cattle grazing in the pasture against the backdrop of the mountains as you enter the main level master suite. Beautifully designed as the owner’s retreat, the master bedroom features a walk-in bay window perfect for enjoying morning coffee, shelving for favorite books, a gas fireplace for chilly evenings and French doors to the back deck for the many beautiful days and the always gorgeous views. The spacious master bath features a large tub with views of the woods beyond. Two sets of stairs, one from the library and one from the foyer provide access to all three levels of the home. The upper level features 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, in addition to a loft overlooking the library and a study which can serve as a guest room. The lower level features an inviting family room with fireplace, a game room, an exercise room, a study, which can serve as sleeping quarters for guests, a spacious bedroom with private access and 2 full baths. Six large closets provide ample storage space. From the back of the home, this level is above ground and enjoys excellent natural light from the many windows and glass doors. Currently much of the acreage is fenced and leased for cattle; however, Thumb Run Farm would also be a wonderful horse property. This country estate offers the best of both worlds, conveniently located ten minutes from Interstate 66 and only one hour from the White House while surrounded by silence and expansive views of the Blue Ridge.
