The most expensive property on this year's Parade of Homes is not new construction, but a thoroughly remodeled luxury property in Spotsylvania County's Carriage Hill subdivision.

Currently owned by the Angstadt Real Estate Group, 39 Carriage Hill Lane was built in 1980 after a two-year construction period. Situated on 5.6 acres, it is indeed a grand residence, offering six bedrooms, seven full bathrooms and a half bath. It has 9,800 square feet of finished living space.

The home is listed for sale by Kristopher and Alicia Angstadt with an asking price of $1.29 million.

Carriage Hill Lane is off Harrison Road between U.S. 1 and Salem Church Road and is one of the 26 Parade of Homes sites welcoming visitors for the final weekend. The tour is sponsored by the Fredericksburg Area Builders Association.

THE PROJECT

The remodeling was handled by the Angstadt company's building and remodeling arm, and resulted in entirely new fixtures and cabinetry for the kitchen and bathrooms along with changes to update the floor plan.

"The interior is almost entirely new," Angstadt said. "But we kept the original features that set the house apart."

That this is a remarkable residence is evident from the moment of arrival. One is greeted by a circular concrete driveway with a center fountain surrounded by landscaping.

The large red double-door entrance is framed by four two-story tall ionic columns that support a gabled portico with a scalloped fascia. The original washed brick has been painted a cream color and the windows received new black shutters.

Inside is a jaw-dropping two-story foyer with a marble floor and a staircase that rises to a midway landing where it splits and continues to symmetrical balconies on either side.

To the left of the foyer is the living room, which has one of the home's custom marble fireplaces. To the right is the large dining room, which previously held a table to seat 30 guests.

The extensive main-level hardwood floors are original and have been beautifully refinished. Crystal chandeliers in the living room, dining room and foyer are antiques for which matching wall sconces were found.

The main level is designed for comfortable family living as well as entertaining--to the extent that the property could merit consideration as a retreat venue.
