Listed by Ron Mangas Jr., TTR Sotheby's International Realty | SOLD
Situated on a stunning 23 acre property in the Shenandoah Valley overlooking the Massanutten Mountains, with 900 feet of private water frontage along the North Fork of the Shenandoah River, this exciting modern home is a fine representation of architect Jim Burton's internationally celebrated work. Since its creation, this home has been featured in countless design publications around the world. Built of insulated concrete with steel framing, a steel butterfly roof, and an amazing 40ft tower, the home soars over its bucolic riverfront estate creating breathtaking views from every room. Intended for extended entertaining, family retreats, or a most luxurious private residence, the thoughtful design extends beyond the main house to the perfect decks, patio, spa, sauna and outdoor living spaces. In addition to the main house, the property includes a modern guest house with a uniquely private setting. The guest house offers a generous bedroom, full bathroom, kitchenette, and living space that converts to a second sleeping room, all overlooking a charming pond at the center of the estate. The amenities continue across the 15 acres of pasture at the water's edge, with a picnic area, bocce court, canoe storage and fresh water on tap. This is a rare opportunity to own a quintessential modern retreat centrally located in the heart of Virginia's beautiful wine and hunt country that is still readily accessible to the DC metropolitan area.
