Property Description

Live the dream on the James River at Barnstone - a 5,598 sq ft waterfront escape on 13.3 acres, 25 minutes from downtown Richmond and 15 minutes from the airport. Barnstone began as a post and beam thrashing barn constructed in the 1820's. Barnstone's owner had the vision to design a magnificent Tudor-style resort around the exposed barn framework. It is truly breathtaking. Boasting six ensuite bedrooms, this home is waiting to entertain family and friends. The great room reveals a soaring 25+ foot ceiling with exposed beams and a stunning 6-foot marble mantle. The beautifully patinated 2-inch-thick pine flooring throughout the home was milled from the original barn and offers luxurious radiant heat. The gourmet kitchen includes an English AGA range and custom cabinets of Caribbean walnut designed by Richmond artisan John Smith. They provide enough storage for even the most accomplished chef. Step outside to experience tiered English gardens and two river-facing porches perfect for a morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine. BONUS: mudroom, laundry/workroom, 250+ wine storage, a detached barn/shed with flanking carports, and ample secluded additional parking.
