Drakelen - 3456 Whiting Road, Marshall, VA from Thomas & Talbot Real Estate on Vimeo.
This fully custom designed residence radiates a bright warmth and inviting atmosphere. Subtle colors have been combined with exquisite design materials such as antique wood & imported limestone flooring, wrought ironwork, and unique molding and trim. And what French country home would be complete without many fireplaces – including in the kitchen?
Be surprised by the vast amount of light that comes from the two-story room which functions as both a Library and Dining Room. The main level features built-in white oak bookcases and cabinetry, and a wood-burning fireplace. On the upper level is an open seating area with wall-to-wall bookcases and a panoramic view of the property through a large Palladian window.
In this residence each room has French doors which provide access to the rear loggia and the open balcony above which span almost the entire rear of the house.
The Master Bedroom features a raised fireplace with gas insert and double French doors to the balcony. The luxurious suite includes large His and Her closets with custom cabinetry. A unique bathroom design provides separate half baths adjoining an expansive tumbled marble shower room with a two person jetted soaking tub.
Provoking the eye with its dynamic design, this French country home is nestled amongst large farms within the prestigious horse and wine country of Northern Fauquier County. Sited on 50 acres, the house enjoys western views of rolling pastures, a one-acre spring fed pond and the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance. This custom home was created as an idyllic country escape that showcases a mix of rustic warmth with elegant simplicity. Enjoy nearby shopping and dining in the historic villages of Marshall, The Plains and Middleburg. The property is in the heart of the Orange County Hunt territory and is approximately 45 minutes from Dulles International airport and an hour from downtown Washington D.C.
