Round Hill is unquestionably one of the country’s most prestigious residential communities, its collection of estate homes set far back from the winding, estate fence lined streets. Amidst this rarified air stands a classic American fieldstone colonial prominently sited on two corner acres. Built by the legendary Ted Visnic, it is introduced via a sweeping paver driveway beyond motorized gates. Looking over a level, manicured lawn framed by immaculate and extensive hardscaping, the estate is a spitting image of the classic country home, embodying a certain familiarity and warmth. The sprawling 22,950 square foot floor plan is initially introduced with a grandiose greeting hall, whose elegant fireplace, double-height ceilings with mezzanine overlook and sturdy doric columns convey images of the triple Michelin-starred Inn at Little Washington. Any estate of this caliber ought to feature the obligatory banquet-sized formal rooms, in this case mirrored and connected via a spectacular arched transverse gallery. Said gallery terminates in the jaw-dropping two-story mahogany library. Its roaring fieldstone fireplace soars from floor to ceiling, while a fully-equipped wet bar overlooks the billiards room whose centerpiece is the Piper J-3 Cub suspended from the ceiling. Tucked off to the side is a replica of another American icon — Oval Office — serviced by twin formal powder rooms. The heart of the home’s informal area is the two-story, cathedral ceilinged, limestone floored chef’s kitchen. Furniture grade cabinets, marble countertops, a unique teak island and all top-end Viking/Sub Zero appliances are all par for the course. A cozy tea room and separate family areas complete the main level. The upper level primary suite is a residence in and of itself. Dual ensuite baths, each with new marble tilework and their own custom dressing rooms, create a peaceful, secluded oasis. Six additional bedroom suites are all sumptuously furnished with new baths, four of them boasting individual fireplaces and one featuring a unique loft space. The eighth bedroom suite located on the top level is adjacent to a large storage area, creating flexibility in the floor plan. The lower level is a true entertainer’s delight with every imaginable amenity present. From the new 22-seat home cinema with 135 inch screen to the indoor basketball court and fitness center, not a single detail has been overlooked. Rounding off the lower level are a private yoga room and three additional storage areas. Mechanical systems powering the home are all of commercial caliber, such as the 11 zone HVAC, new 50 year asphalt shingle roof, and temperature-controlled five car garage with space for lifts, EV charging station, air compressor, and separate vacuum system. As with any great estate, the grounds are every bit as extravagant as the rest of the home. The heated 40-foot lap pool with automatic cover is surrounded by meticulously landscaped grounds which form a lush, green wonderland. An English garden, rose garden, and organic garden are all interwoven with flagstone walkways, while the elegant pool house with cupola and half bath offers additional convenience. Numerous benches, hammocks, tables, and chair swings enable multiple pockets of total tranquility, all of which is illuminated after the sun sets. With every single feature contained in a gracious, tasteful package situated in a community which without a doubt ranks among the nation’s best, 11400 Highland Farm Court is arguably one of the most special homes ever made available.
