To live the quintessential farm and equestrian lifestyle, this is it! Prepare to completely fall in love with 9600 T Pat Road, its amazing transformation and all that it offers today.
The estate – known today as Living the Dream Farm – is situated in the Whistlefield Estates community, which has no HOA fees and just five total homesites. The Spotsylvania Courthouse estate is central to Downtown Fredericksburg, Culpeper and Orange, all of which are within a 30-minute drive.
The principal residence spans nearly 4,000 square feet across one level - in total, there are five bedrooms and 3.5 baths. The home was originally built in 2005 and its current owners masterfully took the reins in 2008.
The year 2009 was massive for 9600 T Pat Road, marking the beginning of well over $500,000 in enhancements to the now streamlined and pristine property. Where it was once covered in woodlands and, in the words of its owners, “consisted of a small goat pen and woods,” the owners transformed so much of its land and the principal home itself.
In 2009, its owners cleared its landscape of unneeded trees and shrubbery, built a 135x200-foot horse arena with viewing bleachers, added a five-stall insulated barn (with cedar-lined tack room, dehumidifier, HVAC and more), built a new 32x17-foot horse run-in and 60-foot round pen, and added numerous gates and fencing for easy access to pastures as well as diverse riding opportunities. The property has more than 8,000 linear square feet of fencing and the barn is less than 40 yards from the home itself. For seamlessness and convenience, this set-up is truly special!
To make this the farm of your dreams, a number of toys and tools convey with the sale including: two all-terrain Polaris four-wheelers; a Bad Boy zero-turn mower (60-foot cut); two weed eaters; a pressure washer; assorted hand tools, ladders, mowers and hoses; a hydraulic arena rake with field attachments and so, so much more!
As for the principal residence itself, in 2009, 2,000 square feet of living space was added to the 1,937 square-foot space. This addition and related enhancements include a totally new kitchen with granite counters, gleaming paned-glass cabinetry, a huge pantry and sparkling appliances (including a gas cooktop and double ovens); a new 16x46-foot deck; two new offices and a new 24x20-foot primary bedroom with walk-in closet (check out the built-ins!) and a double-sided fireplace leading into the 16x31-foot ensuite bath, complete with double-shower-head shower, dual sink and 70-gallon Jacuzzi tub!
Also, as part of the 2009 renovation, new hardwood flooring was installed throughout; an 18x12-foot exercise room with half-bath was created (the Life Fitness universal machine with leg press, lat pull-down, ab core machine, and assorted weights, Landice cardio trainer, numerous smaller equipment and wall TV all convey!); and the owners built an oversized two-car garage with double-insulated automatic door.
Between the addition and what was existing before, the entire home has been totally updated and is beaming with natural light and open spaces. There is no hodgepodge of older contrasting with new here, folks!
Throughout the grounds, you’ll find extensive landscaping and brick walkways. In the owners’ words: “Everything is convenient and built so you don’t have to trek mud through the house.” Plus, if you want to see your horses roaming, they say “you can stand in your kitchen, living room, on the deck... and they are right there in sight.”
For its intelligent design, flexible spaces and nearly endless enhancements, 9600 T Pat Road is an offering like no other!
