You have to see this backyard! Not often do single level homes of this size and design come on the market. Located on one of the finest streets of Virginia Country Club, this beautiful and sprawling single level ranch style home sits on an oversized 24,000 square foot lot. With almost 4800 square feet of living space, this home was designed to be one with nature. Originally designed by architect and movie director Henry Larrecq for Dr. Carlyle Ahrens, the design has been featured in numerous publications including Southland Magazine deemed as the home designed around the music room and the expansive gardens. The current owners have lovingly restored many of the original elements of the home such as the beautiful beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, the generous use of windows, and have thoughtfully added some more modern day elements such as dual A/C, a guest room, and a flex room with glass pocket doors which seamlessly blend the home with the outdoors. Elegant formal living room with gorgeous stone fireplace, formal entertainer's dining room, and relaxing family room are all surrounded by beautiful views of the yards. Delightful kitchen with elegant Lacanche range, center prep island with additional sink, pantry, and convenient adjacent laundry room. Primary en-suite bedroom features frontyard and backyard views, TWO en-suite bathrooms, a soaking tub, and huge walk in closet.
