About Marty and Tanya, Owners, Dragonfly
One of us is an architect and certified interior designer, and grew up in Virginia. The other works in IT and is a transplant from Northern NJ. We currently live in Northern Virginia with our two small children. Over time, we have seen the slow transformation of Northern Virginia from areas of rolling hills and barn silos to highways and strip malls. We love to get away to the lake, escape from congestion and have time to focus on nature, life's simple treasures and, well, quiet. On a daily basis we struggle like everyone else to balance the demands of work and our two wonderful small children. Most of the time, we are overworked and overstressed! Unwinding and spending quality time with family and friends is what this lake house is all about! We work incredibly hard to keep this as a perfect place to gather with multiple families or friends. It's an ideal spot!
Why Marty and Tanya, Owners, Dragonfly chose Bracey
We had been looking for a special lake house surrounded both by trees and lovely water views for several years as a place to vacation and share with others. Finding Lake Gaston, which enjoys consistent water levels and fixed docks, only about 3.25 hours from our main home has been ideal. The weather is often 10-12 degrees warmer than in Northern VA, and this particular spot enjoys 6-8 degrees warmer lake water than main lake properties, yet we have the benefit of large water right next to the house. We don't have to worry about high speed traffic with the kids swimming, and we love taking the boat down to the marina a mile away for an ice cream cone on a summer's day, or to the local grille for lunch, dinner or snacks & drinks. The house fit our needs with plenty of space for multiple families, two great gathering spaces, hardwood floors and a real treehouse feel. It's truly our reprieve from the hustle and bustle of normal work and life! Having a lovely winery 2 miles away with special events and dinners is a big plus! We enjoy the convenience from Rte 85, and even the drive on 85 is more pleasant than 95 S. We love the terracing and gorgeous stone walls, and evenings on the deck or dock.
What makes this House unique
We enjoy the protection of the wide cove, with the views of bigger water and land with a lush canopy of trees. We love the view back of the house from the dock with the stacked stone landscaping walls and the covered eating area on the dock. We saw several homes that were nice houses but had horrible water views or bad water depth, but here we enjoy 8'-9' deep water off the end of the dock with gorgeous views in a fabulous lake location! The craftsman style touches of beadboard wainscot in the foyer and stair, the beadboard ceiling in the kitchen, the open floor plan, the beautiful staircase, the vaulted living room ceiling, 85' of shoreline, flat concrete play space on the front of the house and many other features all made this property an ideal choice for our family. Two of our bedrooms have king sized beds, and we have no issue with hot water thanks to our Rinnai on demand hot water system. As owners, one of us in the design profession, we are adding so many new elements and updates both inside and out! Many of these are not yet pictured as we are constantly updating faster than we can take the current pictures, and we add wonderful touches every year! We added the hot tub, patio and outdoor seating area, outdoor Edison lights above the dock table and under the deck. There are so many spaces to hang out inside and outside that year round you will find your perfect spot. Our water stairs allowing ease of entry/exit into the shallow end of the lake are super convenient, and the bouncer for kids is always a hit! Few houses have one.
