“To sit in the shade on a fine day and look upon verdure is the most perfect refreshment.” - Jane Austen,
Often what makes a house a home is influenced by how natural light moves through a room, the view through your windows, and those shady spots to look upon verdure. Whether you are looking to set down roots in Marshall, Round Hill, Berkeley Springs, Hamilton, Purcellville, Bluemont, Leesburg or Lovettsville, this week’s Just Listed round up features several custom-built homes that take advantage of light and nature’s bounty. These anything-but-ordinary homes have quite a collection of interesting windows and doors that let in both light and the view. Look for palladian, bay, and arched windows, as well as double patio doors and full length glass doors as you peruse these listings. We have ourselves imagining the verdant view from several shady spots.
Palladian windows in nearly every room take center stage and mimic the arch in the top of the silo you can see from the back deck. Vaulted ceilings and natural wood tones connect you with the great views of the surrounding countryside.
This sweet farmette features stone fronted fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, skylights and two sets of double patio doors in the main house. The property also comes with an income-producing carriage house residence and a barn with jockey quarters.
Got a green thumb? There is a pulley system for hanging plants inside and the sunroom has a watering station. The inground pool is surrounded by mature landscaping to give you shade and a pretty poolside setting from which to enjoy the grounds.
Our favorite features of this home are the gorgeous wide plank flooring and its poolside patio shaded by climbing plants - just begging you to sit down and relax. Your horses will have their own verdurous view from one of the four fenced fields or the seven stall barn.
Both the home and the grounds feel like a fairytale at this property aptly named “Far End”. This French provincial farmhouse has gorgeous wood and slate floors, exposed beams and a pigeonnier, all set on a romantic creek-side sanctuary.
What this rental lacks in square footage, it makes up for in being absolutely charming. You even have room for al fresco dining on the deck. With climate controlled storage in the stone basement, you will have just the right amount of space.
