1464 Virginia Road
Classic Monterey Colonial built in 1928 by local architect, Kenneth Albright, exudes original character and charm throughout. Sitting high above the street level with endless treetop views of Lacy Park, this home offers privacy and convenience in its location. A meandering driveway off of Shenandoah leads you into this peaceful sanctuary which sprawls gracefully over the lushly landscaped lot. Flagstone walkways and an adoblar brick front step lead up into the Front hall foyer which features beautiful mahogany wood floors and a French door to the rear garden and the main staircase. The step down formal Living Room is spacious with built in bookshelves and a large fireplace, and hand-hewn beamed ceilings. It opens to the Family Room with a closet and new wood French doors leading out to a large flagstone entertaining patio with outdoor fireplace shaded by an old oak tree. There is a full bath adjacent to the Family Room. The Formal Dining Room has wainscot and hand-hewn ceiling beams and opens to the butler’s pantry and breakfast room with views to the front yard and rear garden with Spanish wall fountain. The kitchen is very functional with a lot of counter space and storage cabinets and room for a center island. Located behind the kitchen is a utility room with washer/dryer hookups and sink, a maid’s room with half bath, rear stairwell, and door leading to the attached 3 car garage with additional 140 sq ft storage room/workshop.
The second level features a light filled upstairs sitting area with decorative fireplace and doors out to a large balcony overlooking Lacy Park (perfect for watching fireworks on 4th of July). The Master Suite also features views of the park, with dual closets, attached bathroom, and private balcony. The north wing features 2 bedrooms that share a full hall bath and a hobby/study room, and a 4th upstairs bedroom, which is an oversized suite with sitting area, 2 closets, full bath and its own private entrance off of Shenandoah. This room could also serve as a game room, spacious home office, or in-laws quarters.
The expansive property is 22,600 sq ft and has 206 feet frontage overlooking Lacy Park, and close proximity to the tennis courts. The side & front yards offer plenty of room for a pool and unlimited potential to make it your own personal resort!
