Home of the Week: Cape Cod-style home with a dozen fruit trees.
From Amy Cherry Taylor and Associates
2036 Spotswood Dr, Locust Grove, VA 22508
Upon first glance, prepared to be totally enamored by 2036 Spotswood Drive’s front yard, the pond, extensive updates, and stately ambiance!
This Cape Cod residence was built in 1999 and, here in 2022, spans six bedrooms, five baths and more than 6,800 square feet. It is among the largest residences on one of the largest plots of land (10 acres!) in Locust Grove’s classic Governors Estate community. With this acreage, the current owner has cherished wildlife swirling by.
There is a pond for fishing on-property as well as outbuildings, including a detached three-car garage, pull barn primed for an RV and/or tractor storage, workshop and 10×10 building (currently used as a dog run). For even more parking, there is an attached two-car garage, and its driveway was recently resealed!
Out back, yes, there is a pool (with a new liner, pump, and filter!), hot tub, concrete patio and wooden deck for all of your outdoor entertaining. Fruit cocktail trees surround the pool space, and throughout the property you’ll find a dozen fruit-bearing peach, pear, and apple trees. Where the back of the property is lush with fruit trees, the front yard (where that scenic pond is!) is open, freshly landscaped bliss. Before heading inside, note the new gutter guards for seamless maintenance.
Inside the stately white home, you’re greeted with a marble entry with soaring 20-foot ceilings. Immediate spaces that dazzle with noticeably new blinds throughout are a sitting room, formal dining room, family room (hello, stone-clad gas fireplace and tall ceilings), half bath and the main level primary suite! This suite is massive with its own HVAC set-up, super-sized closet and ensuite bath complete with a Jacuzzi tub and new toilet (all five toilets in the home are new!). And we can’t forget the show-stopping kitchen! Kitchen components include all stainless-steel appliances, marble countertops, dark wood cabinetry, an island with sink, and a garbage disposal. Just off the kitchen is a sunroom that’s beaming with tranquility.
Upstairs are five total bedrooms, all with brand-new carpet and each with a ceiling fan. There are two full baths as well. The upstairs bedroom landscape includes another primary suite, a large room over the garage, a standard bedroom and two smaller bedrooms with no closets. These may be built out, should your heart desire!
There is a basement here, too, folks! Within it, you’ll find new hardwood floors, a full bar (refrigerator and barstools convey!), large half bath, remodeled laundry room (with new Samsung washer and dryer that convey), room for a possible office and a pool table. Speaking of the pool table, everything throughout the home is negotiable, including the seven big-screen TVs and so much more! The lower-level space is very much an open oasis for your man cave dreams, with approximately 2,500 square feet of space and its own separate entry to work with.
Beyond this incredible estate, multiple shopping centers for groceries, dining and more, golf courses and historic battlefields are within 15 minutes. Interstate 95 access (via Route 3) is 25 minutes east and you can be in Downtown Fredericksburg, Culpeper and Orange all within 30 minutes. The care and upgrades poured into this stunning home visibly show here in 2022!
From its wildlife to its open spaces to its convenience to the broader area, these is so much to enjoy at 2036 Spotswood Drive!
