From Amy Cherry Taylor and Associates
11202 Knolls End, Spotsylvania, VA 22551
|UPCOMING OPEN HOUSE : Public: Sun Jul 17, 1PM-4PM|
Custom-built with upgrades to the max by a builder originally for his family in Fawn Lake, and just four years old? It may seem too good to be true, but 11201 Knolls End is absolutely sparkling and move-in ready for you and yours! This luxurious residence spans over 7,000 square feet and has 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths.
Before examining the residence and its expansive .77-acre lot, yes, this home is in the amenity-full Fawn Lake! Among the community highlights are its Arnold-Palmer-designed golf course, clubhouse, swimming pools, nature trails, and tennis center, all anchored by a 288-acre lake.
Zooming in on the acreage that’s tucked at the end of a cul-de-sac, professional landscaping abounds. An attached third bay provides shelving for all your lawn/yard tools, golf cart and extras. There are two Trex decks off its backside. One is covered and a favorite of the current owners for tranquil evenings.
Below the covered deck, note the massive brick-surrounded and white column-clad patio just off the walk-out basement’s exit. For grilling and/or lounging, this space is bliss… and it’s hard-wired for a hot tub! For parking – in addition to its paved driveway – there is an oversized two-car garage with automatic doors.
This modern spin on a farmhouse-style abode is brick with white paneling and black shutters. Up its front brick staircase and beyond the stately white columns dotting its front porch, an open and bright haven awaits inside. The entry foyer has white, wood-paneled walls that soar as professionally painted walls and gleaming hardwood floors flow.
Main level highlights include a professional office with a glass door and windows looking out to a magnolia tree, a great room with coffered ceilings, a wall of windows, built-in speakers (note the speaker system through the entire home!) and a see-through gas-burning fireplace, and the showstopping kitchen and dining room. Kitchen components include stainless steel appliances (two Bosch dishwashers, a GE Profile fridge, matching dual ovens, induction cooktop and range hood!), cherry center island with two sinks, quartz countertops, see-through gas-burning fireplace, and a massive pantry (with a window, fridge and freezer that convey, and shelving galore). Off the kitchen is the dining room with a white-beamed cathedral ceiling and room for a table that can seat 10-plus. The main level laundry room is also a must-see, with quartz counters, organizational systems and tile floors.
And, yes, there is a huge main level primary suite that runs the length of the house! With stunning tray ceilings and plush carpet, the suite includes a large bay window, supersized walk-in closet and ensuite bath complete with heated floors, his-and-her sinks with custom vanities and a large tiled walk-in shower.
Upstairs are four total bedrooms, one of which has a vanity with sink, barn doors and could easily be a homeschooling or hangout spot! The three remaining bedrooms are carpeted – one has an ensuite bath and two are connected by a Jack-and-Jill bath. All bedrooms upstairs have walk-in closets with intricate shelving, and don’t miss the walk-in linen closet in the hall!
From the main level, an open hardwood staircase guides you to the lower level. Its anchor is a massive open space with big windows and plush carpet. The back section has a rough-in plumbing for a bar and there is a full bath just off it. Additional basement highlights include an office with two windows, home gym (all the gym machinery conveys!) and an unfinished space for storage. The home’s core components include two sump pumps, a dual-zone HVAC system, two hot water heaters, a private well for irrigation and more!
From the residence, Downtown Fredericksburg and Lake Anna State Park are within 20 minutes. Within 15 minutes along Route 3, grocery, dining and shopping options await.
With too many upgrades and too much magic for words, 11201 Knolls End is a home you must experience to believe. View the listing and attend its public open house on Sunday, July 17!
