Designed and constructed by John Neufeld Architects of Fairfax, Virginia, the main house is of the French country style in stone and stucco, and features five bedrooms, including an expansive master suite with private sitting room on the second level, four full bathrooms, one half bathroom on the main level, a formal dining room with a custom commissioned mural depicting the property in its full glory, a formal drawing room, an oak paneled study, a large gourmet kitchen with keeping room plus family room and built ins.The large fully finished lower level is ideal for entertaining, or as a place in which to play family games, with its wet bar, fireplace and television area. The lower level exits to a delightful sunken patio which accesses the side yard. The barn is a stunning eight-stall building with a hay loft and twin cupolas, which house ventilation fans to complement the natural airflow from the open windows at either end, a heated tack room, laundry room and wash stall. From the barn, riders emerge to either a choice of five large, white painted fence pastures or directly to the olympic size dressage arena with full with arena mirror.
