Weaverton is a unique log and stone home built in 2002 but was designed as a reproduction from 3 different time periods in the Shenandoah Valley; a log cabin from the 1750's; a Hessian stone addition from the 1800's; and an early Victorian wing from the 1850's. Perfectly and carefully placed on 12 rural acres in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, Weaverton is the result of a dream come true for the designer and builders. The logs were dismantled from a 200 year old bank barn. Stone from the foundation of the barn was used to build the massive stone chimney and fireplace. With attention to every detail, each room in Weaverton tells a story. The large family room on the main level is equipped with a stone fireplace and flooring using historic bricks. Baskets hanging from the overhead beams along with woven rugs bring that special country feel.
The full kitchen is home to custom cabinetry and is spacious for a family gathering. Weaverton is furnished with all your kitchen dinnerware and cooking utensil needs.
The main level master suite has an antique king bed and accompanying drawers/dressers. Connected to the master bedroom is a full bath including large jetted tub, walk-in shower and two seperate vanities along with a dressing area.
The lower level is home to a cozy family room including large screen TV and unique handmade bar with bar stools as well as a full bed.
The upper level contains two large bedrooms. Included in the upstairs rooms are a full size rope bed, 2 queen beds, and a twin bed - all with antique handmade quilts. There is also a full bath on this level.
A favorite spot at Weaverton is on the oversized covered 'rocking chair' porch that overlooks cascading waterfalls and watergardens. The many flower gardens are home to hundreds of brillant daylillies. The watergarden has many different types of water plants including waterlillies and lots of fish. Relaxation takes on a whole new meaning when you are sitting by garden, listening to the music of the water in harmony with the chirping of the birds as you take in the views of the Blue Ridge Mountains off in a distance.
The 2-door detached garage is convenient for parking and has ample room for storage.
