Within the home the spaces are vast. The foyer is vaulted with an open stairway to the second floor and the basement. The family room is spacious with a gas fireplace and wet bar. The open columns to the kitchen stretch the views and the tasks of meal preparation can be easily shared in this gourmet space. Seating for eight around the kitchen counter lends itself to casual affairs while the dining room, with its Tuscan feel, makes way for more formal meals. The main floor master suite boasts two walk-in closets, a large walk-in shower with four shower heads, a seating area and access to the back deck. A beautiful built-in office in the front of the home gives welcome to business guests or makes a wonderful space for personal and family document storage. The first floor is rounded out with a laundry room, and powder room highlighted by Venetian plaster. The three bedrooms on the second floor are all fitted with a walk-in closet and full bath. No two bedrooms share a common wall or common ceiling so privacy is assured in these comfortable spaces. The large bedroom over the garage is equipped to serve as a mother-in-law suite complete with a separate living room overlooking the kitchen, a private entrance from a stairwell in the garage, and a small kitchenette with sink and refrigerator. Above the family room is a large storage space for holiday decorations, luggage and decor items. The basement is an adults? playground complete with a theater, wine cellar, kitchen and a sports bar featuring a pool table. A fifth bedroom with a walk-in closet and bathroom with a steam shower is also in the basement. A second laundry hook up is in the closet at the base of the stairs and two additional closets in the basement are wonderful for storage. A powder room and walk-out workshop complete the basement. This property is extremely private. Located in the heart of Harrisonburg, the 2.5 acre lot is large and the many trees gave the owners the opportunity to shape the landscape as they chose. Whittling out a tree at a time until the building space was evident, the homeowners blazed a way through the lot with pinpoint accuracy to achieve their concept for a country oasis within the city. Afternoons are shared in the screened pavilion listening to the running stream and watching the birds that flock through the woods. Evenings begin in the outdoor kitchen where the breezes sweep through to give way to comfortable dinners with friends and family. As the evening wanes, stroll to the deck for a glass of wine from the cellar or just enjoy the stars under the open sky. The home is perfect for the hobbyist who enjoys gardening, cooking, woodworking, wines, reading, music and technology. With a full house audio system, enjoy the same music in every room or create a zone with your own favorites as others listen to their selections throughout the home and gardens. The outdoor theater allows the homeowner to show movies at dusk in the back yard while the stage can be used for event presentations, weddings or just sitting in the evening shade. The garden shed is large enough for a tractor and holds all equipment for gardening or can store camping equipment and hiking gear. The bocce court allows the homeowners to pass the time over a game and glass of wine in the shade of the afternoon.
