It’s not exactly pink… it’s more of a rosy-peachy hue. But locals have long referred to it as The Pink House.
The Pink House is located in the heart of a quaint historic village called Waterford.
Waterford is in Loudoun County, Virginia about 47 miles northwest of Washington, D.C.
Here’s the cool thing: the entire village and surrounding countryside is a National Historic Landmark District, noted for its well-preserved 18th and 19th-century character.
The street-facing front side of The Pink House is formal and town-ish but the extensively terraced backyard feels like a rural paradise.
But before we explore the backyard, let’s have a look inside this exquisitely renovated 1700’s home…
The Pink House has a long and storied past, having served at various times as a tavern, an apothecary, and most recently as a bed and breakfast.
This grand home is currently listed for sale at $1,499,000.
The dwelling has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in 3,618 square feet.
Look at the marvelous kitchen:
The sink (pictured above right) is hammered copper and there is a second sink (not shown) that is hewn from a limestone block.
Although the kitchen is a newer addition, the listing claims it has “400 year old terra cotta brick floors.”
Let’s have a look at the rest of the house…
The rooms are spacious yet cozy.
The home also has an enclosed patio with mahogany French doors…
One of the upper floor bedrooms also has a large balcony overlooking the lush backyard:
Here’s a peek at an attic bedroom:
It’s so charming, from top to bottom!
The backyard secret garden is just as enchanting…
The listing describes it as a “tiered garden with profuse plantings balanced by formal Italianate geometry.”
The majority of the .41 acre lot is the picturesque rear yard.
Here are a couple more drone photos so you can get a sense of the ‘hood:
House Crazy Sarah can almost hear the clippity-clop-clop of horses’ hooves in the olden days.
What a splendid home in a darling historic village!
