Property Description

Crafted from the rubble of an 1880’s farmhouse, one of the regions most renowned woodworkers in 1985 started rebuilding room by room, a story in logs, timber, hardwood and barn siding. Spacious rooms filled with light and character emerged. The dirt floor was transformed by structure and random width white oak milled from a fallen Clarke County tree or reclaimed siding from a Hamilton barn. The roof was quite literally raised!nnAcclaimed master craftsman Wallace Johnson has spent over 35 years creating a masterpiece outside the village of Morrisonville. The custom made quarter sawn white oak entrance door is 39? wide. Door and window jambs are 6 and 8 inches deep. nnThe hall staircase is quarter sawn white oak with a walnut balustrade and mahogany handrail. The walnut newel post was reclaimed from a house in Leesburg. The ?true descending volute? transitioning from the handrail to the newel post is hand carved. The original winder staircase, located in what is now the library, was demolished and a new one built in the music room of heart pine and walnut. nnThe Kitchen was expanded in 2001. Once only the width size of the fireplace now it is full with exquisite custom cabinets and Chefs level appliances including a six burner gas Dacor range. This crafted and hand built kitchen with soaring ceilings offers a keeping room ? the stone hearth Mantle lintel is stunning. An antique leaded glass transom is a work of art in place.nA Gracious size upper Master Bedroom Suite with adjacent bath and 3 additional bedrooms, 3 bath and a half bath make the home most livable. nThe exterior siding is clear all heart vertical grain redwood which is rot and insect resistant, will not warp and has been back primed. This is rare.nThe barn was renovated in 2012 with concrete floors added as well as an addition. It has a wood burning stove, a loft and 200 Amp electric. nRemnants of an 1800 Stone Spring House stands sentry and nice size paddock at the front of the farm is ideal for horses or cattle, goats or sheep. The grounds are like a magnificent private park ? subtle and the year round stream and pond are akin to Monet’s Garden. nnLocated in the Historic Morrisonville Village made famous by Pulitzer Prize Winning Author Russell Baker in Growing UP – Hallingdal cover 7.6 acres of pasture, woodland borders, running brook and pond, mature oaks and flowersnShort Hill Mountain Stone from just outside Hillsboro were used in the foundation of the addition built in 1992 and flagstone patios add outdoor space.nThe house has a 20KW Briggs and Stratton standby generator which powers most of the house. The 1000 gallon propane tank is leased from Blossman Gas.nHallingdal, a valley in Norway has lent its aire to the farm, lovely and pristine and in this case…about an hour to DC.
