Phenomenal Equestrian Estate
Aroda, Madison County, Virginia
PICTURESQUE AND PRIVATE This beautiful property is tucked away on 21+ private, rolling acres. There are so many features to admire, both inside and out. The owners have added many improvements and amenities to the property during their ownership. A PJ Williams-built 5-stall barn was constructed, complete with concrete center aisle floor, tack and feed room, wash stall (with hot and cold water), hay storage. There are 4 pastures for turnout and a 20 x 60 m riding ring with bluestone dust and sand footing. A beautiful, inviting saltwater pool (with adjoining freshwater spa) has been perfectly placed just off the rear of the home, complete with a relaxing water feature, rich tile and stone decking. Inside this beautiful home, you’ll be welcomed by a soaring 2-story foyer with 18+ ft ceilings, fireplace with artisan mantle and iron screen. The library awaits, with loads of shelving/book cases and display areas. You’ll surely fall in love with the Family room – offering a two-sided stone fireplace and breathtaking views of the backyard garden and rolling pastures. The kitchen offers granite countertops, island with breakfast bar, 2 sinks, stainless steel appliances and custom cabinetry. A lovely sun room overlooks the spacious deck w/ pergola and pool area. Tucked away on the other side of the 2-sided fireplace awaits your first floor owner's suite, if needed, or perhaps an office or art studio? This room offers so many options for use, as it sits right off of the kitchen and family room area (and has an adjoining full bath), making it perfect for a play room too! Rich, freshly finished wide plank hardwood spans the main level. On the upper level, you’ll find 4 bedrooms and 2 full spacious baths. The 4th bedroom currently functions as a dressing room, but the storage/shelving components can easily be removed. This home offers over 4K sq ft of living space! Two other amazing features to highlight about this home…….. A large 3-car garage (the 3rd bay has been converted into a pet grooming area but can return to garage space if preferred), and an apartment (or perhaps in-law suite?) overtop the garage (identified as "upper level 2" in the room measurements), offering 2 bedrooms, full bath, living room and den. This home certainly offers a nice balance of beauty, space and peace of mind, as the owners have put in a Generac whole house generator, tankless hot water heater, new Carrier furnace and Culligan water filter system. Internet accessibility = Verizon 4G LTE tower/SureSite. Come prepared to stay a bit......you won't want to leave.
