Description

The ~Pink House~ is a Waterford landmark that has been completely transformed into an architectural masterpiece inspired by the grand country homes of Europe. Having variously served as a tavern, apothecary, and bed and breakfast, it has been totally reimagined with every surface and detail artfully recast for modern luxury and comfort. From hand-colored Venetian plaster to closet doors from Provence, inlaid mosaics from Montepulciano to French mahogany window casings, the Pink House is both a work of fine craftsmanship and a collection of deftly placed materials and imports. With an emphasis befitting the gourmand lifestyle, the kitchen comprises an entire new wing with cathedral ceilings, commercial appliances and 400 year old terra cotta brick floors. The sink is hammered copper and a second is hewn from a limestone block fit with its own custom cart. Continuing through french doors to a patio with outdoor fireplace, the fresh character of the house comes in part from this easy inside-outside flow. A stone staircase connects the patio to a broad limestone terrace that opens from the second level and there are many more quiet spots for conversation and space for significant gatherings.The master suite provides another level of outdoor space with a private balcony from which to gaze on the rooftops of Waterford. Its spacious rooms open from the bath through the bedroom to the sunroom addition with its mahogany french doors leading out to the garden, giving the whole level a bright and airy impression. The lot has been elegantly redefined as a lush, tiered garden with profuse plantings balanced by formal Italianate geometry. Stone steps cut a path up one side to a hilltop arbor encircled by white wisteria and bridal wreath and three flights of imported Italian limestone staircases descend back to the terrace. A site on which a garage with apartment above is permitted. Suited as a private residence of distinction, the house could easily resume its previous post as a bed and breakfast or short term stay venue. Both the second and third levels feature bed and bath suites, a sitting room and private entrance. Whatever its calling, the destiny of the Pink House is surely to be admired today and to be a muse for visionaries for another 200 years.

Waterford

Waterford is located northwest of Leesburg and south of Lovettsville.  It was settled by Quakers in the early 1700's and is one of few National Landmark Villages in the nation. Many of the original structures remained untouched and in disrepair until the 1940's, when members of the community proceeded with revitalization efforts.

Quality of Life:

Waterford is the kind of community that seems to have been unfazed by the passage of time. The preservation of the original buildings maintains the ambiance of Main Street America. Those interested should take note of the communities old Victorians, colonials and farmhouses. Nearby Village Winery offers seasonal fare and a variety of different wines.

Waterford is home to many equestrian training centers and boarding centers. With the beautiful scenery, who wouldn’t want to go on a trail ride through the woods by the river or just enjoy a beautiful day outside in the equestrian rink. 

Getting Around:

Car is king. Route 9 connects residents to Route 7.
