Custom home on nearly four acres provides perfect private retreat

If you’re looking for a secluded estate with your own pool, look no further than this gorgeous custom home in the lake community of The Meadows at Joe Brooke Farm in Manakin Sabot, in eastern Goochland County, Virginia.

The residence is listed by Pam Diemer at the Grove Avenue office of Long & Foster | Christie’s International Real Estate. Located at 717 Woodson Place, the home has five bedrooms, three full and one-half bathrooms, nearly 5,000 square feet, and it is being offered for $1.1 million.

“This beautiful wooded estate offers peace and tranquility in a great location – close to Hermitage Country Club, Kinloch Golf Club, the region’s newest medical office parks and just 20 minutes to Short Pump Town Center,” said Diemer. “You’ll love walking or biking in the community and having picnics and boating on nearby Dover Lake.”

As you arrive at the property, you’ll notice the home’s captivating French-style architecture situated in a park-like setting with well-manicured landscaping and plenty of parking. Stepping into the home through the covered entryway, you’ll find a stunning foyer with marble flooring, a turned staircase and enticing views of the first-floor rooms – including a view of the beautiful backyard and pool through French doors.

The foyer is open to the elegant dining room, with plenty of molding, lighted china cabinets and a tray ceiling centered by a stunning crystal chandelier. A butler’s pantry connects the dining room to the large well-equipped kitchen. Here you’ll find a center island with seating, cherry cabinetry and an informal dining area with gas fireplace, bookcases and a bay window. The kitchen leads to a sunroom with vaulted ceiling to enjoy morning coffee or relax at the end of the day.

On this floor, you’ll also find a family room with fireplace, formal living room, laundry room and spacious owner’s suite with sitting area, two closets, two vanities, ceramic shower and whirlpool tub. Open French doors from the formal living room or from the family room to a covered patio overlooking a large two-level patio and saltwater pool – ideal for a worry-free escape.

Upstairs, you’ll find four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a large recreation room over the garage, which is currently being used as a gym but could be an ideal home office. 

A few of the other features of this home include an automatic generator and a surround sound system.
