Home of the Week: Dazzling River Junction Estate
From Amy Cherry-Taylor
8107 Riverview Dr. Fredericksburg Va.
Built in 2007 and dazzling under its original owners ever since, 8107 Riverview Drive is
ready for its next chapter. Will you be the next lucky owner to help write it?
There is so much to work with within this River Junction estate – it spans 4,600-plus
square feet, four bedrooms and four baths. The equestrian-friendly River Junction
community is built for outdoor lovers with trails, tennis courts and river access. Fun fact:
It’s called River Junction because it’s where the Rapidan and Rappahannock rivers
The original owners built the home with a few key features in mind: A main level primary
bedroom and a professional dog grooming area in its basement. Among the home’s
most unique features, there is a professional dog grooming room with tub in the
basement that opens up to its own fenced area. If this isn’t Fido’s dream come true,
then what is?
The entirety of the property at 8107 Riverview Drive spans five acres, with lush woods
behind the home culminating in direct access to the Rappahannock River. Its current
owners have regularly hunted and fished right there in the woods. The immediate back
yard also includes a shed and massive covered deck with fan.
The gray and maroon home is situated on a cul-de-sac and is tastefully clad with cream
siding and stone accents. Inside and on the main level, there are two carpeted
bedrooms. In addition to the primary suite – which has its own balcony, walk-in closet
and ensuite bath (hello there, large soaking tub, upgraded tile and double vanity!), the
owners wanted a second bedroom on the main level, too.
Additional main level highlights include the hardwood -lad dining room with upgraded
trim, spacious living room with a fireplace that has stone leading all the way up to the
ceiling, laundry room (washer and dryer convey!) and the maple-filled kitchen! Maple
cabinets abound in the kitchen and there are also unique Zodiac counters, a tasteful
backsplash, walk-in pantry, island with gas cooktop and a peninsula (enough room for
barstool storage). A breakfast nook and morning room are just off the kitchen – the Trex
deck may be accessed off the morning room.
Upstairs is a carpeted utopia with two bedrooms, one bath (tub/shower combo with
double vanity sink), linen closet, storage spaces… and a large living room! The upstairs
living room is perfect for a recreation space, TV room, game room… you name it. For
residents and guests alike, this is where it’s at, folks.
The basement boasts a mix of partially engineered hardwood floors and beige carpet.
Downstairs you’ll find a huge living area with a surround-sound hookup, wet bar with
glass cabinetry, full bath, the vinyl-floored grooming area and tons of storage spaces.
There is outdoor access that leads to the home’s patio, too!
Other perks of the estate include a whole-home generator, instant hot water and a water
filtration system. Its HVAC and hot water heater systems have been meticulously
maintained throughout the years.
For commuters, Downtown Fredericksburg and Interstate 95 (Route 3 exit) are both
within 20 minutes of the home. Several grocery, dining and shopping options are
situated along Route 3, including Harrison Crossing with is seven miles southeast of its
