Large Country House in Virginia Outside Richmond

This is a 3000 sq ft ( ~280 sq meter) home in the country located on 10 acres of land with rolling hills, woods and pastures. The home is large (we are a large family) and has plenty of room for many guests both inside and out. The house has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (2 of which are en suite bathrooms). The house has a large family room, very large kitchen with large table, fireplace & seating area.
