We bought this property and built on it believing we would retire here. It is a magical place to live and the location is perfect – peaceful, private, surrounded in nature and yet minutes to groceries, movie theaters, restaurants and more.
Unfortunately, we need to move back out west for reasons we did not anticipate. This website is our way to share the beauty (and a bit of the history) of this unique property.
Take a look around, let us show it to you.

Nationally known architect, Peter LaBau, designed this home. We asked him to ‘bring the outside inside’ and to design an open floor plan home that sat comfortably on a Virginia mountain top. When it was complete he told us that it was the only home he’d designed he’d actually want to live in.
Local construction company, Worth Inc., built the home. They build only a couple ’boutique’ homes a year. They completed ours in the summer of 2013. The home is exceptionally built and Worth Inc. took care of a myriad of details. The home site maximizes the views. The landscape was carefully contoured to give the driveway a lower slope, to manage drainage and create flat space surrounding the house.
These stories share the day-to-day sights, sounds and experiences of life on the mountain.

There is minimal light pollution on this property, yes still some but far less than in more urban areas and that lends itself to some star gazing. In January 2019, we were treated to the sight of a 'super blood wolf moon' and the view was amazing. This composite image...
