Last week we toured the outdoor space of a gorgeous family home in South Stafford. If you missed seeing this tour, head here to enjoy its beauty.
Today I am excited to take you on a tour of the inside of this incredible home. The owners, Christine and Kent, were drawn to the unique architecture and the detail to design that is found throughout. If you remember from the outdoor tour, the original homeowner was a world-renowned architect who designed and built this home using all his favorite design elements from other homes he had built. Christine and Kent take pride in knowing that so much love, care and devotion went into this house that they now call home.
Get ready for lots of beautiful photos!!!
Walking from the foyer into the great room, you are greeted with large windows that share the beauty of the land that the home sits on. A large, comfy Clayton Marcus sectional from Green Front Furniture in Farmville, Virginia, is the perfect family gathering area for this family with three boys.
The details in the floor to ceiling windows is amazing.
Music fills the air when Christine or one of the boys sits down to play songs on the magnificent grand piano. Can’t you imagine the great entertaining that the family does in this space!
The family’s golden doodle also enjoys relaxing or napping in the calming space. Isn’t he so cute!!!
Light pours into the kitchen through these large windows, and makes it the perfect spot for cooking or baking. Filled with tons of storage, every kitchen item has a space. There is even opening shelving designed for displaying favorite kitchen items.
The original homeowner loved growing flowers and plants. Some of her orchids are still thriving in the same space today.
Off the family room is a long hallway that leads to the master bedroom, master bathroom and screened in porch. Instead of just having a door that closes with walls on either side, the original homeowner designed the hallway to be aesthetically pleasing, while providing a large amount of closet space for the master bedroom. Talk about well designed – every inch of space in the hallway is utilized and looks beautiful.
The master bedroom, like so much of the home, is filled with natural light and certainly is a retreat for the homeowners.
The only space that has been renovated since moving in is the master bathroom, where the goal was to make it more functional and modern. Using Amanda Moon from Lowe’s Design Center, the couple worked with her on the design, cabinetry and tile selections. Abby Construction completed the installation.
The rectangular sink is fabulous with the brushed brass fixtures. It is a great design detail that is many times forgotten with oval being more the standard.
The Hudson Valley light fixtures were purchased from Commonwealth Lighting of Virginia in Downtown Fredericksburg on Caroline Street.
Off the master bedroom, a little retreat – the screened in porch – is a favorite place for the couple, their family and guests to enjoy as well. With plenty of lounging space and dining space, the family can use it for many months of the year.
Christine, who loves crafts and projects, built this adorable moveable cart. Complete with a retro cooler she found on the local Facebook Marketplace, it is a fabulous addition to the porch.
From the lovely porch, we head upstairs to the incredible library where rows and rows of books sit waiting to be read. The family’s sons enjoy sitting in the library reading, playing games and building Legos.
Four bedrooms and two bathrooms are symmetrically located on either side of the library with beautiful views to the outside and tons of natural light pouring in each room.
What does the family love the most about this home?
“There is so much to love! I love all the light the beautiful windows bring in. I love the library and that that they boys like to sit up there and read or build Legos. I love being able to cook and look out at the pond. I love all of the trees and the shade they give on the hot summer days. And the screened in porch – it is so lovely to sit out there on a hot summer night and listen to the chorus of frogs.” – Christine, the homeowner
Thank you to Christine and Kent for sharing their beautiful home! It is definitely a special place in our little part of Virginia.
