Welcome to 701 Hanover, a meticulously updated colonial revival set upon a double lot with off street parking, a compact garage, and an abundance of space. This lovely home sits on the 700 block of Hanover Heights as it was deemed in 1928 when developed, and originally built in 1930. The original builder, Robert B Payne, is well known for using old bricks, salvaged wood, and repurposed building materials, while paying close attention to detail which offers a special level of charm that can not be ignored in the many homes he built and restored in the Fredericksburg area. Just as this home was built with great attention to detail it has also been brought back to life with the same level of care. The current owners have painstakingly updated, and renovated while keeping the integrity of the original home and its 1994 addition. All of the modern needs of today's home owners have been considered, from the laundry being added to the bedroom level, the floor to ceiling renovation of the hall bath, to the quartz countertops and Jenn Air downdraft stove in the kitchen. This is just a sample of the many upgrades this home has seen over the past three years. The glazing of the windows, the custom shutters, new gutters to tie in with the original copper downspouts, the new GAF Slateline roof, water heater and flu, self sustaining sump system, new insulation, and so much more (refer to improvements list in documents). A few of my favorite features are the oversized master suite with a gas fireplace, custom wood paneling, sitting room area and an equally spacious master closet and bathroom to make this the perfect retreat. I adore the side sun porch and picture morning coffee and a good book. I imagine entertaining on the brick patio in the rear courtyard with a fenced side yard for playing. The library/study can not be beat with the custom built in cabinetry, a wet bar, and a separate powder room. The maple floors and cherry cabinetry along with the custom trim work throughout show there is no detail neglected. This home is a dream! This beautiful home is not only in amazing condition, it also happens to sit on one of the most beautiful blocks of our lovely town, and is conveniently located a few blocks from the VRE, the best restaurants in town, historic tours and parks, the Fredericksburg Battlefield, and the many trails and paths along the Rappahannock River. Come take a tour of 701 Hanover and learn why it is so well known and loved.
