Welcome home to a  beautiful log cabin retreat with the Chancellorsville Battlefield right behind the back property line!  8803 Boulevard of the Generals is truly dreamy! This spacious, energy-efficient log home spans three bedrooms (plus a loft!), 2.5 baths and more than 2,000 finished square feet of open yet cozy space. It sits on a 2-plus acre lot in the Estates of Lee-Jackson, located close to 95, Central Park and all that Fredericksburg has to offer. The land here is as dynamic as it is historic. Highlights include an RV building and cement pad for parking. An asphalt driveway segues to the home’s lower-level, sideloading two-car garage for even more parking! Landscaping-wise, Meadows Farms came out approximately two years ago and added some fantastic, low-maintenance touches. The back yard includes two larger sheds, one of which has electricity. There is a sweeping deck off the backside with stairs that go down to the 16x16-foot patio. You can sit out on the perches and look out to the Battlefield – so tranquil, folks! It’s a relaxing and wooded ambiance like few others. The exterior was recently re-stained, and all of the windows are thermal paned. Through the front door, you’re greeted with a tile entryway that leads into the great room. A-frame windows and 20-foot-high ceilings abound, with a stately wood stove on a stone hearth as its centerpiece. Note the two skylights and exposed wood beams and... all of the floors were refinished just last year! The kitchen was upgraded in 2018 and includes gray cabinets (note the customized cabinets for spices and more!), black stainless-steel appliances, a farmhouse sink,  a custom vent hood, an island with prep sink and more. Additional main level highlights include a dining area, butler’s pantry with wine rack and... the large, carpeted three-seasons room with a sliding glass door to the deck/patio. There are three bedrooms on the main level, inclusive of the primary suite. It includes two closets (one is a walk-in) and ensuite bath that was updated in 2022. The primary bath has a soaking tub and ceramic tile-clad walk-in shower. The final bedroom on this level has a sizeable closet with sliding doors and the final full bath boasts a tub/shower combo and large linen closet. The loft overlooks the front of the house and includes two skylights, window lighting and beautiful built-ins. The basement includes a finished bedroom, half bath, ample storage space and a hookup for a washer and dryer. Core component-wise, there is an existing plug-in for a generator; the HVAC was updated in 2018; the hot water heater was replaced in 2022; and all valves/pumps related to the septic system were recently updated. In addition to its incredible battlefield-adjacent location, numerous grocery, dining and shopping selections await along Route 3 within 10 minutes. I-95 access (Route 3) is 15 minutes east and Downtown Fredericksburg is 20 minutes east. Orange and Culpeper are within a 30-minute drive, too. As the current owners describe living at 8803 Boulevard of the Generals, “you enter, immediately relax and it’s like you’re on vacation.”  Please come for a visit and prepare to be totally wowed!
