They found it at Mount Vintage Plantation.
Their 3,100-square-foot home offers sweeping views of the golf course, which appeals to David’s love of the game. A neighborhood barn stables horses, feeding Anjela’s love of all things equine.
The couple built the home last year to escape the rigors of a big-city lifestyle.
For 22 years, David commuted two hours from their home in Fredericksburg, Va., to work at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in Washington, D.C. He now drives 30 minutes each way, leaving plenty of time to spend with Anjela and their daughter, Alessandra, and to enjoy his time away from the office.
“It’s much better here,” Anjela said. “We get to do what we want to do, which is enjoy life.”
With four bedrooms and a loft area that can be converted into a bedroom, the family has plenty of room for overnight guests. They entertain frequently.
Anjela, an interior designer, decorated the home to reflect her eclectic French country style. She found new ways to use antiques and things she already had to create a décor that is comfortable, livable and perfect for the couple’s simplified lifestyle.
