About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-15)

50 Acre Estate within short drive of downtown Richmond, Virginia! This NEW home has the look and feel of a Classic French Country Manor with all the high end luxuries and amenities you would expect in a multi-million dollar Estate!

With over 5,000 sq ft, this home is spacious enough for the entire family. The hardwood floors are Reclaimed Antique Heart Pine and are so rare you will probably never see any again. The Chef's kitchen features Stainless Steel Viking Appliances including a warming drawer, ice maker and Miele Coffee, Espresso, Cappuccino and Frappucino Machine. There is a 50 inch Plasma Flat Screen T.V in the living room and 48 inch Plasma Flat Screens in 2 bedrooms all complete with Direct T.V. You will think you were in a Spa Resort when you experience the master bath complete with Double Rain Head showers and Infinity jacuzzi tub where the water travels majestically down from the ceiling. There are 2 wood burning stone fireplaces that come in handy on those chilly winter nights. If you like games, there is a Billiard's Room with a Classic English 6 ft Pool Table and Dart Board.

There is nothing more incredible than sitting on the front porch, in a rocking chair, at night and gazing upon the crystal clear constellation filled sky and listening to the sounds of the night. When you are ready to venture out, there are several paths to hike and easy access to a beautiful 30 acre lake that has been rumored to be 'chock full' of Large Mouth Bass! Bring your camera because this is the country and if you're quiet, you will see plenty of wildlife. Of course, you will see plenty of wildlife just looking out of the windows of the home itself, but it is more fun to go out and explore. When the sun sets, gather around a large bonfire and roast marshmallows and exchange your best ghost stories.

About Powhatan, Virginia:

Powhatan County lies in the heart of Dixie, a scant twenty miles from Richmond, the capital of the Confederacy.

The first record of a white man being in the area known as Powhatan County was in 1608. A band of approximately 120 men led by Christopher Newport made an expedition up the James River to a point as far west as Maidens Bridge.

In May 1777, the Virginia General Assembly created the County of Powhatan out of land from the eastern portion of Cumberland County between the Appomattox and James Rivers.

In Virginia, there are nine counties bearing Indian names. Only one, Powhatan, is named for an Indian chief. 'Chief Powhatan,' father of the famous Indian princess, Pocahontas, was one of the greatest, and is today one of the best known of the Indian chiefs

Powhatan's heritage is rich; its hold on the treasured memories of a life long past is secure because of the interest of its citizens in restoration and preservation. The county is known for its warmth and generosity shown by its citizens to make this a place called 'home.' Bordered on the North by the James River and on the South by the Appomattox River, Powhatan is 273 Square Miles and has a population of 26,000.

Why the Owner Chose Powhatan, VA, USA:
We chose this amazing home because of the serene and tranquil settings. The 50 acre retreat is the perfect get away from life's hustle and bustle. We also wanted to be far enough from 'everything' to truly enjoy country living, yet close enough to enjoy modern conveniences. Because we are only 15-20 minutes from major shopping, restaurants and entertainment, this is the perfect location. To ensure a memorable stay, we appointed the home with the finest, high end, appliances and finishes one would expect in a luxury home . We hope you enjoy your stay.
