Flent Hall, a stunning Colonial Williamsburg-inspired home, originally built in 1990, has been lovingly remodeled inside and out during the past four years. Situated on 20 manicured acres in the Old Dominion Hounds hunt country and in an area of numerous protective conservation easements, this all-brick wonderful country house is immaculate in its many luxurious offerings. One enters the two-story reception hall featuring a grand staircase. From there, one finds the 22x23 great room with floor to ceiling stone, woodburning fireplace, numerous sun-burst windows, and access to the rear porch. Off to the left is the open, fully-fitted and recently remodeled 17x31 kitchen with lots of table space, Italian Fulgor Milano appliances, Kraftmaid cabinetry, marble and quartzite counters, Blanco sinks and Brizo faucets, two kitchen islands and a woodburning fireplace. Nearby is the 16x17 dining room, 35x14 family room with French doors to the porch, the cozy library with woodburning fireplace and a powder room. There is a full bath off the kitchen that also serves the pool. Up the grand staircase (there is also a back staircase that comes down to the kitchen) one finds the 20x26 primary bedroom, 3 walk-in closets, lots of windows taking in the view, a woodburning fireplace and an exceptional bath with two hammered nickel sinks, bidet, copper tub with hammered nickel finish and large shower. There is an upstairs reading room with fireplace and four additional bedrooms. On the lower level there is a full bath, bedroom with walk-in closet and lots of windows, 21x21 recreation room with fireplace, an exercise room and two large storage rooms. The well-appointed house features all new Jeld-Wen double paned windows, 6-woodburning fireplaces, solid wood doors throughout, 3 ½ inch gleaming oak floors, particularly fine bathrooms, total garaging for four cars, all brick and Hardiplank construction – all maintained on a very high order. The brick guest house offers completely redecorated quarters with full bath, woodburning fireplace and a new heat pump. There is a 2-stall brick stable with tack room, hay loft, an attached run-in and chicken coop, and two paddocks. The home is enhanced by the immense character of the grounds including a long, paved drive approach to a circular front parking forecourt, exterior lighting on the house and garden, a lion’s head fountain into a garden pond, brick potting shed, all new stone patios and sidewalks, a 46-foot pool with new gunnite, coping and tile, a 80-head sprinkler system – all bathed in bursting flower gardens and shrubs – the base structure of the garden having been designed by Caroline Tait, a Royal Horticulture Society (RHS) Hampton Court, Palace Garden Festival award winner. To take in the splendid rural setting, perhaps your favorite spot might be relaxing on the 21x22 resort-like covered rear porch overlooking pastures, pool, gardens and woodland. It features delightful Chippendale railings and Ipe decking – truly a first-class setting.
