Property Description

Welcome to Boxwood Cottage! Built in 1909 as a small cottage, this stunning home offers over 5,000 sq ft of beautifully finished living space. In 2005, an expansive addition blended the old with the new creating a more contemporary family home. Ideally located just minutes from the village of The Plains, this property is surrounded on three sides by a large farm. Enter from the wrap around covered porch into a surprisingly large open room featuring the living room with built-in shelving, hardwood floors, a fireplace, and the dining area. Many windows on two sides bring the outside in and fills this room with light. Through French doors is the office/library and a powder room. Off the dining room area is the gourmet kitchen with high ceilings, island, custom cabinetry, stainless appliances including a gas stove, and a breakfast area. From one side of the kitchen is the laundry room/mudroom with a separate side entrance. Just passed the breakfast area is a sitting room with built-ins and a fireplace. This part of the home offers the 3 main level bedrooms to include the primary bedroom suite with skylights, large walk-in closet and a full bath. Off the sitting room is an enclosed porch with flagstone flooring that once served as the original entryway. 2 more guest bedrooms which share a full bath complete this level. The lower level has a spacious Family/Recreation Room with a fireplace and an 4th bedroom with a full bath, a window, and a separate walk-up entrance. Extensive landscaping surrounds the house to include of course – many boxwoods! While the location offers easy access to paved Route 55, the house is ideally tucked behind a stone and stucco privacy wall and has plenty of parking. A large fenced back yard offers an open stone terrace ideal for entertaining under the trees. Or enjoy sunsets from the covered porch with ample spaces for a table and multiple seating areas. There is a small storage shed and a fenced area for dogs. The property is served by town water and sewer and has a generator. Great commuter location with easy access to I-66 and yet minutes to The Plains, Marshall, and Middleburg. Don’t miss! (Be sure to watch the video!)
