Vacation House in Virginia
The front porch of the River Mill house invites guests to have a seat, enjoy a sip of their favorite beverage, and savor the views of the river. This vacation house in Virginia offers a Victorian charm, standing tall and proud against the Virginia countryside, and offers multiple covered porches so as to experience the views from all angles. A porch swing hangs on the curved veranda of the front porch, providing a spot to enjoy quiet conversations and whispered secrets.
Inside high ceilings, hardwood floors, and wide baseboards offer proof of its history while modern conveniences ensure that everyone who sits on the velvety sectional in the living room is comfortable while watching the state-of-the-art television mounted on the wall to the side of the fireplace; the tiled fireplace adds romance and extra warmth in the colder seasons. The dark wood mantle provides more historic charm and the original green tiles harken back to those simpler days.
The farmhouse kitchen is an inviting room, offering custom cabinets painted rich hunter green, an apron sink, and sleek stainless steel appliances. Three visitors can pull up a barstool at the white stone counter that contrasts beautifully with the rich green of the cabinets and small appliances perched on those counters to ensure that every morning will start out properly caffeinated! The dining room, centered between the living room and kitchen features a long farmhouse wood table surrounded by 6 chairs and one very inviting bench built into the window that looks over the yard. A doorway that is more window than wood leads out to another portion of the wraparound porch where two friendly rocking chairs wait to be put to use.
