6500 Westham Station Road
Rarely does an opportunity such as this come along to own one of Richmond’s magnificent signature homes. With its old world construction and ambiance, but updated to meet today’s lifestyles, “Summit” was built in the early 1900’s on a serene five-plus acre hilltop. This beautifully crafted brick and slate Georgian is supported by lovely formal gardens and magnificent towering trees, bluestone and brick terraces, a “Sport Court” (tennis/basketball court), a handsome pool with pergola, plus breathtaking views! Substantial architectural details include tall ceilings, a handsome curved main staircase, well-proportioned rooms including a banquet-sized dining room with fireplace, a heart-pine paneled library, and gracious mouldings & trims throughout. The updated eat-in kitchen includes a charming morning-room nook and a unique “herringbone” wood floor. The original carriage house was converted to an inviting family room also overlooks the terrace and beyond, and has a fireplace and built-ins, plus a private bedroom ensuite above it. Upstairs in the main house is the expansive master suite with a walk-in closet/dressing room, a fireplace and built-ins. There are three additional bedrooms with baths, and a potential au pair suite or recreation area on the third floor. Offering peace and privacy, this rare gem nestled in the heart of Westham was open on the 2006 Garden Tour.
