9486 Briar Lane. Where Tuscany meets magnificence in Delaplane.
Nestled in the heart of Virginia’s hunt and wine country, a magnificent gated Mediterranean inspired estate awaits you. Set on nearly 20 glorious acres, the expansive stucco villa with its red-tiled roofs exudes a sunny California feel, seldom seen in this verdant region. The airy and light-filled Casa with its modern Tuscan flare has been designed around a beautifully remodeled interior courtyard, flooding the home with natural light while offering an open invitation for entertaining as well as intimate living on an elevated scale.
Approaching along a peaceful country lane, a gated drive is revealed, framed by endless lush lawns and rolling pastures. Reimagined through two years of extensive renovations, the home has been christened Magnolia Peak after the majestic magnolia trees at the entry courtyard. A contemporary porch with Zen gardens provides entry into a foyer and its welcoming embrace. Galleries flank the interior courtyard, with upper level walkways gazing down from above. An evocative two-story Great Room is accented by a fireplace of native stone, reclaimed from field walls built during the Civil War. Tall sliders open to a cool catwalk overlooking the irresistible pull of a brand-new swimming pool and spa.
The wholly transformed courtyard is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows that allow the outside in, and the inside out. Low-profile dark gray art installation babbling fountains intersperse symmetrically with rectangular slabs of tile, a bed of river stones and matching planters. The end result is a serene space where guests can mingle in the evening as jazz wafts softly through the air, courtesy of integrated audio throughout the property. Or, spend a quiet morning as sun reflects off gently bubbling fountains.
Soaring arched windows can be found throughout the home, allowing natural light to bathe gorgeous dark hardwood floors. Main level spaces include a spacious living room with a latticework of overhead beams and a marble fireplace, a formal dining room, a 2 story family room, a breakfast room and a speakeasy style lounge-game room with pendant lights over a full wet bar with storage for 150-plus bottles. There are also two powder rooms plus laundry facilities at this level.
Cook for a crowd in the Chef’s kitchen as savory scents tease and tantalize. All-new Viking Professional Series appliances includes a custom burgundy red eight-burner double oven range complemented by a double wall oven, a range pot filler, a prep sink and an armoire fridge with icemaker. A long granite island with a pot sink and two dishwashers, is the perfect place to sit and nosh. There’s a Rain Soft drinking water system and a towering butler’s pantry with a dual drawer fridge, pot sink and a 300 bottle duel temp wine refrigerator. A fireplace with whitewashed bricks adds to the allure and provides the perfect spot for a casual dining table.
Upstairs are five bedrooms, three full baths and a coffee/espresso bar with sink and fridge for family and guests. A stylish owner’s suite features a gas fireplace, 55-inch wall-mount Smart TV, Sonos Sound Bar and two delightfully linear balconies overlooking the pool and rolling pasture beyond. Matching balconies are found in many other rooms as well. The owner’s bath offers a free-standing soaking tub, double-sink vanity and incredible walk-in steam shower with dual heads plus rain shower. The designer ambience is emblematic of all baths throughout. A special top floor tower room is yours to imagine.
A fully finished lower level boasts a bedroom suite with full bath, a rec room with billiards and ping pong, a fitness center, 10-person wooden sauna, a full bath that serves both the gym and pool area, a fridge plus a laundry room with sink. Two sets of sliders lead outside to a sublime setting with gray stone walkways, patios, dining spaces, a fireplace and a kitchen with grill and rotisserie, dual-sided burner cooktop, fridge, draft cooler and recessed ice box. There’s the 20’ by 40’ heated dark-bottom swimming pool, a sun deck with lounges, automated pool cover, 10-person spa and outdoor speakers. Yes, it really is that nice and literally all brand new.
Additional features include garaging for six cars, new stone gravel driveways, built-in Sonos speakers and audio bars throughout the property, Apple TV, seven mounted Smart TVs, automatic/intercom front gates with security, Wi-Fi garage doors with motion sensor, and brand-new five-zone high efficiency HVAC controlled via NEST. Virtually every system on the property can be controlled via phone apps and universal remotes. The property is offered as a turn-key experience for the new owner.Request a Showing
A stark contrast to the bustle of city life and about 50 miles west of Washington, DC is a land that time seemingly forgot. At the same time, Delaplane, Virginia has become home to many people looking for the perfect balance of proximity and tranquility. The picturesque landscape of Crooked Run Valley has been attracting a new generation in recent years, pulled toward the promise of a life less hectic.
There’s a centuries-old lineage here in a region known for the equestrian tradition of Hunt Country. Delaplane dates back to early Colonial land grants and estates, and was later established as Piedmont Station along the Manassas Gap Railroad. It was renamed in 1874, after local merchant and postmaster Washington E. Delaplane. You can still find a number of early homes throughout Delaplane and the region and the Piedmont in general.
Rich soil and rolling hills beckoned vintners in the modern era, including Delaplane Cellars, Three Fox Vineyards, RdV Vine Wineries and Aspen Dale Winery at the Barn. Many of these charming farms offer inspired small plate dinners and tastings. You’ll also find excellent shopping and restaurants in the neighboring communities of Paris, Upperville, Middleburg, and Marshall.
From weekend retreats to year-round living, Delaplane is moving ahead at a leisurely pace. Commuting is a snap, via I-66 to Dulles or into the city.
