With an address like 3945 Amherst, you know that this home is going to have both style and substance. This listing from Greg Pape of Virginia Cook Realtors is a wonderful exercise in light and contrast. This home, which sports a stucco facade, three fireplaces, an upstairs master suite, and an open floor plan is priced at $2.295 million. It has 4,918 square feet on just less than a fifth of an acre.

With high ceilings, dark wide plank wood floors, and huge windows, the common spaces in this home feel immense and truly grand. You get two living areas, two dining areas, an L-shaped living and kitchen area with views of the backyard, unique ceiling treatments and designer lighting, as well as a huge kitchen island and dual fireplaces in the common areas that will make this part of the home a magnet for family gatherings.

The kitchen is spectacular, with custom cabinetry galore, a Wolf gas range, an immense Caesarstone-topped island counter, and plenty of lighting. This is a great configuration that is growing in popularity in homes of this caliber, with a gourmet kitchen connected to a formal dining room by a butler’s pantry. This is fantastic because it gives you a flexible space for entertaining without having to hustle to the kitchen all the time.

All of the bedrooms are on the second floor, which could be a deal-breaker for some people. Just know that if you want to make this home more accessible for people who wish to age in place, all you have to do is call an experienced elevator contractor such as Elevating Systems. They will be able to make this home function for those with limited mobility.

The master suite is huge, and has some fantastic design features, including some innovative design solutions and creative light fixtures. “The generously sized master suite provides a tranquil retreat with its unique ceiling treatment for illumination at night,” said listing agent Greg Pape. “A soaking tub, separate shower, separate vanities, stone treatments, and a large walk-in closet are exceptional features of the master bath.”

The home also has some energy-efficient upgrades including open-cell foam insullation. It’s also ready for full technology integration, with CAT-5 wiring throughout. Outside you’ll find a wonderful covered patio with beautiful stone underfoot and a beautiful wood-burning fireplace where you can get cozy this winter.

Is this a High Caliber Home or what?!

  • I really like this house and everything is perfect for the most part. Only things i would change is the mantel in the “family room”, kitchen backsplash, and have the cabinets go up the the ceiling so they look more custom fitted than just builder grade.

  • I want this home. Transitional is my favorite style with the clean lines I like yet still feels warm, not cold like ultra modern homes feel.
