Home of the Week: Stately 3-story home on Aquia Creek
From Amy Cherry Taylor & Associates.
72 Indian Way Court, Stafford, VA
With private gazebo views overlooking Aquia Creek, a stately brick residence with a lower- level suite, and a vast backyard with gorgeous views, a fountain and expansive deck, 72 Indian View Court is totally loaded here in 2022. And these features are only the beginning…
Built in 2005, this residence spans nearly 4,900 square feet, with six beds and 3.5 baths. It sits on a super-roomy 3.39-acre lot in Aquia Overlook. And, yes, its back yard space backs right on up to Aquia Creek, with your very own gazebo overlooking it all! Watch wildlife swirl by – it’s common to see eagles, deer, and everything in between in this backyard utopia.
Up from the water’s edge, the yard (which the longtime owners lovingly refer to as their “golf course” of sorts) is a huge stretch of green space. Note the finished shed out back with electricity, cupboards and more – it can easily be a detached man-cave or she-shed! Other highlights include two small ponds, a waterfall feature and fireplace set-up with concrete sitting wall. There is fencing on both sides of the yard. The deck is a composite material and surrounded by a stone buffer. Plus, the back patio makes for such a tranquil lounge spot! For as action-packed as the back yard is, the front boasts low-maintenance landscaping.
The residence itself is a stately light brick with off-white paneling. Its fresh roof was replaced only five years ago. A paved driveway leads to its two-car garage with an automatic door – inside you’ll find a washer/dryer set-up and shoe rack system (it all conveys!).
The main level is bright and open, with hardwood flooring throughout apart from a tiled kitchen and sun room. Staples of this level include the living room with soaring ceilings and a gas fireplace, morning room, formal dining room, sitting room and bedroom. The kitchen is massive with stainless steel appliances (two stoves, a warming drawer, wine refrigerator and more!), an island, granite counter tops and a half-bar leading to the morning room.
Upstairs, make sure to pause at the landing and admire the views and layout below. There are four total bedrooms and two baths on the upper level. The master bedroom has a double-door entry, huge walk-in closet, gas fireplace and ensuite bath – bath features include a double sink, garden tub and stand-up showers. All six bedrooms are carpeted and, of the additional three bedrooms, two have walk-in closets. The final bath has a dual-sink set-up and tub/shower combo. There is also a linen closet that may easily be morphed into a laundry area.
The basement has its own entrance, painted concrete flooring and may easily be its own in-law space! Downstairs you’ll find a full kitchen (stainless steel appliances, neutral counters, island, and tasteful backsplash!), bonus room, living room, open office area and bedroom set-up. The bath has a tiled shower and two sinks. Throughout the lower level take note of the rounded walls and molding, adding that much more to its unique vibe.
With this location, I-95 (Garrisonville Road/Route 610), Quantico and its VRE station, and shopping galore along Route 610 are all within 20 minutes! Downtown Fredericksburg is approximately 23 miles south.
With views, great wiggle room inside and out and convenience, 72 Indian View Court is ready to be all yours. Book your showing now!
