Description of 8362 Holtzclaw Rd Warrenton, VA 20186

Reflecting a rare architectural pedigree coupled with a breathtaking setting, Ridgelea is available for the first time in 25 years. This idylic Georgian mansion is positioned on a high knoll overlooking 210 lush acres in the heart of prime Virginia Hunt Country. Celebrated architect, Waddy Wood designed Ridgelea in 1920 and more recently, world recognized architect, Hugh Newell Jacobsen reimagined the main kitchen, butler's pantry, oversized mud and laundry rooms and a secondary kitchen. A serene, tree-lined drive leads to a sun bleached pea gravel motor court. Waddy Wood, one of Washington's most renowned architects, used a quiet pallet of stone to construct much of the home with stately white columns and shutters accented by a slate roof. The interiors are impressive from the moment you step through the front door with an expansive foyer and high ceilings flanked by symmetrical corridors with stunning, wonderfully scaled broken pediment door casings. It is no surprise the main level furnishings look like they belong in the pages of a national design magazine. Renowned interior designer and Warrenton resident, Barry Dixon is responsible for a main level refreshing seven years ago which includes Fortuny upholstery and draperies. The oversized living room, adjacent garden room, library and dining room have wood burning fireplaces. A second main level garden room adjacent to the kitchen is enhanced by a woven, green grasscloth wall covering that brings the outside inside this sitting room.The second level of Ridgelea boasts two bedroom wings. Five, ensuite bedrooms each with fireplaces are accessible from the primary corridor including two master bedroom suites with private doorways leading to a private covered veranda. A secondary corridor of rooms accessible from the second floor or the back stairwell has three bedrooms, one full bathroom and kitchen. These rooms have previously been used as quiet guest rooms and as staff quarters. A modern elevator reaches all four levels of Ridgelea including the unfinished basement and a massive attic room that could be converted into a multi-area entertaining space. The grounds of Ridgelea unfold like a resort. A recently updated swimming pool with stone surround, two large guest cottages, a picturesque pond and a nine-stall horse barn with office space and paddocks are all part of this exquisite Warrenton estate. Removed from the rest of the world but affording the conveniences of nearby dining and shopping less than ten minutes away, Ridgelea is a historic jewel with a brilliant future.
