Property description

My home is located on a beautiful private 63 acre lake in Mechanicsville, Va. It is settled on 12 acres of land nestled in by a winding driveway that is secured by a privacy entrance gate. You will be renting the entire home, homeowners not on site.

This home is 20 minutes from Richmond International Airport and 30 mins. from downtown Richmond and the westend of Richmond. About 2.30 - 3 hrs. from DC depending on traffic, 70 mins. from Busch Gardens and Williamsburg, Va. and 20 mins. from Kings Dominion. If you are a NASCAR fan, I'm only 25 mins. from the raceway. Food Lion and Krogers are about 15 mins. from the house.

My home has 4 bedrooms. The master bedroom is on the 2nd floor and has a queen bed with private bathroom. 2nd bedroom has a double bed with private bathroom, 3rd bedroom has 2 twin beds, bathroom across hall. All bedrooms have remote ceiling fans. The 4th bedroom is on the first floor, right beside a full bathroom, perfect for the guests that do not do stairs. All bedrooms are private, not occupied by the homeowner.

We have a large cozy living area with a 52' flat screen TV and a remote gas log fire place. The kitchen is open with all amenities. We have a large dining room with large table and chairs. Makes dining together easy and comfortable. In the mornings, enjoy your coffee while listening to the birds chirp and watch the eagles fly across the lake on our wrap around back deck that gives you 360 views of the pool and lake surrounded by trees and nature.

If you would like to just get away and watch your favorite sports game on TV, we have the ultimate man cave basement complete with a kitchen/bar, pool table, ping pong table, air hockey and dart board. It has a 50' flat screen tv. This room also has a see through gas log fire place and opens to a patio overlooking the pool and lake.

If you love to fish, would like to sit by the pool and read your favorite book or just want rest and relaxation looking at a beautiful private lake, this is the place for you. The only noises you hear at our home are birds chirping and fish jumping.

*****Please note the house has wireless internet, but is not suitable for gaming or streaming music or movies. Guests have 1 gig of internet usage a day. If you are staying 3 nights, you will have 3 gigs during your stay. We suggest you bring your hotspot or your own wireless service if you need more internet during your stay.

******Pool opens the 2nd or 3rd week of May and closes the end of September.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Hi, my husband and I purchased this home in 2005 to get out of the city of Richmond to a more peaceful setting where we could fish at our leisure, but not be too far away from the city. What a great decision that turned out to be. Living on this private lake in a gated home resting on 12 acres gives us everything we need, privacy and a grand view of nature, with only a hop skip and jump from Richmond, Williamsburg, Va Beach and DC. We love living here and can't wait for you to share in the beauty and tranquility of this beautiful place..

Why the Owner Chose Richmond:
We chose this home because it has the best lake views from the wrap-around-deck off the 2nd floor, from the walk-out basement patio, along with a gorgeous pool overlooking the entire lake and property. All bedrooms also have the same beautiful views.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love getting together with our friends, playing pool, ping pong, throwing darts, watching football while cooking hamburgers on the basement patio grill. In the summertime, we love floating in the pool, just relaxing in the pool looking at this beautiful lake. It is so much fun and easy to have a cookout on the patio and eat around the pool. For breakfast sit on the 2nd floor deck on our outside dining table with umbrella. Have your morning coffee watching the fish jump around in the lake or see an eagle fly over the lake.
