The 4862 square feet Russell Versaci inspired Sawyer Farmhouse from his simple farmhouse collection was built in 2002 by Castlerock Enterprises, Gretchen Yahn, President. This seven and one-half (7.5) acre property has commanding views of the scenic pond and Blue Ridge Mountains beyond. There are four bedrooms and four full baths, a powder room and a half bath in the basement which doubles as a changing room for the swimming pool. The basement has been finished and contains a workout area as well as a cedar closet for clothing storage which doubles as a storm and bomb shelter. The clapboard construction is constructed using Werzalit siding in China White. The front porch has been replaced with pressure treated floor joists and Hardy Plank tongue and groove material. The 1” by 12” wooden band boards have been completely replaced with plastic wood (high density polyethylene (HDPE) with a 50-year warranty). The property has a two-bay garage with a third bay for equipment storage. An Invisible Fence dog containment system is installed with control in the garage. A separate single car garage with a covered breezeway leads to the laundry room with easy access to the kitchen and large pantry. There is professionally installed stonework in the pool area and in the rear of the main house suitable for evening dining, socializing, and lounging. Professional landscaping and compatible plantings were installed by Earthworks of Berryville. A discretely private fenced inground swimming pool and spa with a gas fired heater is nestled amongst plantings on the southside of the house. A retractable awning has been installed in the rear patio area to shield the sun when it is brightest or if there were a gentle rain that one would like to enjoy the viewshed with the lake and Blue Ridge Mountains beyond while having a refreshment on the back porch. Centered in the driveway between the front door and the barn is an original millstone surrounded by cobblestones which define the perimeter of the driveway in front of the house. Weeds, honeysuckle, bull thistle, were all removed exposing the natural rock formations where a variety of rock garden plants and flowers were lovingly planted. Many trees were planted including a Japanese Maple in the pool area, two Crepe Myrtles, a lilac, four Nelly Stevens Holy trees, six white pines, two weeping willows, three Dogwoods, four Redbuds, an Elm, four October Glory Maple Trees, four arborvitae, three Norwegian Spruce, appropriate wetland flowers, grasses, and a pussy willow in addition to the initial developer plantings. All these additions are complemented by the towering Ailanthus which dominates and defines the property so majestically. The Ailanthus is protected by a sturdy copper grounding wire. Shrubs, including boxwoods and azaleas, abound on the property in the front, back and sides, as well as along the northern property line.
