As you enter the majestic surroundings of Winchester community with its tall towering pines, rolling hills, and exquisite homes, turn onto Holly Leaf Lane. You will find a quiet street that offers privacy with no through traffic and just a few homes. The moment you turn onto this drive, life begins to slow down and a relaxed feeling emerges. Meander towards the unusually level drive of 1109 Holly Leaf and you will be delighted by the sea of green shapely shrubs set against majestic oaks and towering pine trees. Natural boulders dot the mature landscape with
manicured hedges and colorful Japanese maples. A rock retaining wall with aromatic rosemary and lavender dripping over the sides leads you toward the front door of this welcoming transitional craftsman home nestled in a serene sanctuary. Smokey gray stucco on top of a stone wall of earth tones captures your eye. Earth-colored shutters lend to the craftsman feel of this 3830 sq. ft. 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath, 3 car garage, transitional home on 1.6 acres. The possibilities are endless in the footprint of a formal dining and living room, private office space, gourmet kitchen, great room, two owner’s suites, and multi-level living with outdoor entertaining spaces.
A spacious drive offers room for guests to park when visiting or room for the kids to ride their bicycles. Step onto the welcoming path that leads to the front door. Stroll past the mature Japanese maple whose leaves change with the seasons and have been known to offer a safe haven to a doe with her twin speckled fawns. You will find two extraordinary stone columns guarding the beautiful wood door entrance of the home. Before you enter, stop and look around at the sanctuary before you. The sun is filtered and cooled by the tall oaks and pines. The property gently slopes through ornamental grasses and flowering shrubs.
