Eat-in country kitchen with silestone counter tops with picture window to look out the gardens from the breakfast area. Step out onto the deck to tend to the plants in your small English greenhouse or look across the lawn to the gunite pool with fountain. The manicured grounds explode in a symphony of color in spring time with azalea, dogwood, boxwood, rhododendron, magnolia, holly, and much more. Truly like a private resort yet in the heart of Warrenton and a short walk to the shops, outdoor cafes, festivals, concerts and more in Historic Old Town Warrenton. The Gardens as described by the seller: American Boxwood and dogwood trees provide a border to the front of the property at Roebling Street. On the right, facing the front of the property is a Yoshino cherry tree. Two large magnolia trees dominate, with autumn fern, pulmonaria, and hosta on the ground below. The front walkway is bordered by creeping juniper and a dwarf Japanese red maple. Across the driveway are several azalea bushes and, along the fence line, there is a small but productive stand of blueberry bushes. To the left of the gate and the steps leading up to the back garden is a pink dogwood tree. A deciduous magnolia (Royal Star) stands to the right. On the ground below the dogwood are peony bushes and small golden lillies. At a second gate near the blueberry bushes is a lilac bush. A large birch tree stands over the fish pond. Also near the fish pond are acuba (this year showing red berries), American boxwood, rhododendron, and azaleas. A second dwarf Japanese maple is on the right. Down the path to the right is a small kitchen garden. Beside the raised garden bed there are lamb's ears, clematis, and day lillies On the south side of the house are peonies that bloom in the late spring. Last summer, I grew giant sunflowers on the south side of the house. On the left side, opposite the fish pond, are crepe myrtles. Behind them are cryptomeria and a limber pine. Korean boxwood border the western side of the swimming pool. Winterberry bushes and hollies are to left of the pool as one faces the back of the property. On the right side are more rhododendron, azaleas, and hollies. Two small paths, one on the right and one to the left, lead to the Winchester Street or eastern edge of the property. This area behind the pool receives less afternoon sun than do the other areas of the property. There is a little shaded reading garden behind the pool. In the late winter, snowdrops appear. In the spring, there are ferns, Virginia bluebells, and often trillium. There are several very large rhododendron bushes, and several azaleas. There is also a large bed of hostas near the Winchester Street gate. These shade-loving plants thrive in the back garden. Several dogwood trees mark the Winchester Street side of the property. In the spring the bank is covered with flowering vinca and crocuses. Small quail daffodils bloom at the top of the bank under the dogwood trees.
