Listed at just under $10 million, 781 Church Hill Road includes eight acres in Washington County. Outdoor spaces include a gated entrance and bronze statues—all of which were purchased specifically for the property.
Inside, the home’s nearly 18,000 finished square feet are 5 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms and 3 half-baths. Visitors enter through the main doors and walk into an impressive 35-foot-high foyer. Light pours in through giant windows, illuminating a double grand staircase with modern design details. The formal living room is just as dramatic and bright, with plenty of room to entertain a large guest list. Much of the home’s furniture is built-in and its artwork, created just for these dramatic spaces, is included.
The homeowners relax in an open living space that encompasses a gourmet kitchen with built in dining space, family room and dining room, which boasts leather floors. The bright and spacious office has mahogany walls, floors and built-in furniture.
Elsewhere, the master suite is secluded in its own wing with a luxury bath. The theatre room sports a 10-foot screen for movies, near a custom billiards table in the bar area. The pool and spa area includes a weight room, lockers, a tanning bed, massage table and steam room. And separate from the main home, long-term visitors enjoy their own one-bedroom apartment with gourmet kitchen.
“The best compliment I get is that my home is big but it is so warm,” says the homeowner. “That’s because of personal touches, such as the art and the interior design. This is a warm home, and it needs a family!”
