On 4.6 lovingly landscaped acres in Northampton County, Virginia, an early colonial revival home dating back to 1825, with additions in 1851, 1920, and 2006. Located only a half-hours drive from the cities of Virginia Beach and Norfolk, Cape Escape offers privacy and gracious country living in close proximity to ocean beaches and cultural attractions, both locally and regionally. The present owner applied a comprehensive plan of historic preservation and restoration, high quality new house construction, and landscape architecture to create an elegant estate with recreational amenities able to serve three generations of a large family. The driveway entrance between two brick columns is the portal to a breathtaking canopy of blooming crepe myrtle trees that shades the long shell path home to Cape Escape. The evolution of the original two-room colonial has brought the manor house into the twenty-first century. Now the home sprawls to over 6100 square feet and includes more than generous accommodations in 6 bedrooms, 4 full baths, 1 half bath, formal living and dining rooms, a library in the oldest portion, a 44 ft. family room and spacious, well-equipped gourmet kitchen. Special features include a three level elevator, smart wiring for high technology, hardwood floors, picture windows, 10ft. ceilings, 5 fireplaces, 3 outdoor decks including 44ft raised patio, English basement, architectural moldings, handmade doors, covered porch, 4 zone HVAC, cameras, sound and security system, propane fired 45,000 KW generator and two 15’x30’ master bedroom suites. Fulfilling the mission of a country estate, a two-story Dutch barn and porte-cochere provide convenient vehicular access. As well, a recreation barn and swimming pool center with full cabana provide outlets for family playtime. Gardeners and landscapers will be inspired not only by the impressive tree-lined driveway approach but also by the wonderful flower beds and shrubbery surrounding the manor house and especially the huge camellia bushes in the back yard.
