About the owner: My husband and I traveled the country while in the military. We settled in Fredericksburg Virginia and love our northern community. We wanted to be closer to our family so we embarked on a journey to Florida where we currently reside.
Why the Owner Chose Fredericksburg: We noticed a need for a vacation home in Fredericksburg area. Fredericksburg is one of the most historically interesting towns I have ever visited. The Civil War battlefields are very well preserved and the park rangers are very friendly and knowledgeable. Fredericksburg is very close to a lot of Virginia's premier attractions. We are located near downtown Fredericksburg that has wonderful antique shops, and great local restaurants. The downtown area is also very historic and has original buildings from the founding. We are only 50 miles to Washington DC and can catch the Virginia Railway Express trains to visit without having to take our vehicles. While in DC you can also ride the DC Metro and go all over the city. The location we chose is close to everything but it's a very quiet neighborhood tucked away from the main thoroughfares.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The property sits on a double lot allowing lots of room to spread out. Outside there is a brick chimney for grilling and relaxing by the fire. The pool is on the other side of the driveway keeping it private and not right in the backyard. The two car detached garage is spacious and provides good shelter for your vehicles. The house itself is setup nicely for entertaining and has a very open floor plan where everyone can mingle together and have privacy. The kitchen is very spacious and several people can cook together.
