Free Hold Farm to be presented at Green Blades Garden Club Tour of Homes

Published 10:20 pm Thursday, April 2, 2015


Reminiscent of Virginia hunt country, this elegant property spans 48 acres to include the home, six-stall stable, and a guesthouse set in complete privacy.  The regal fieldstone residence is crafted from rare, old world materials from its primitive mantle, the heart pine floors, to 200-year-old hand chinked pine beams. As you enter, the bright foyer greets you with soaring ceilings, ushering you into the living room that features many works of art.
From there you weave your way through this lovely home into several new additions, one of which is the new great room, designer decorated, so that comfort and elegance welcome you. Just outside, a new garage awaits you with unusual doors made of cloth, and a chandelier (unusual for a garage), and a canoe that serves as a bar for entertaining.  The love of English antiques is evident throughout this beautiful home.


There is something so appealing about confidence, especially when it comes to interiors. People who know how they want to live and do it well populate their home and focus on the bravura style of their personality; High style meets laid-back  chic. Her house always feels very human. You never feel “do not touch,” but at the same time there is a “wow” factor. The residence is an elegant serene retreat, one to maximize the views of the breathtaking landscape with precisely all of the colors in mind to enhance it.
