Just a stone's throw away from the waters of Whittaker Lake in Governor's Land stands 3012 Hearthstone Road. 

Constructed in 1994, this Georgian Revival home sits along 300 feet of wooded shoreline.

The main floor of the home is a common Georgian Revival layout, with an entry hall flanked by a dining room and formal living room, each with Masonry gas fireplaces. Other living spaces—the kitchen, great room and solarium—face the back yard. An additional fireplace compliments the two-story great room, where large windows enable scenic views of the garden and lake.

At the rear of the house is a large, enclosed bluestone patio and a Williamsburg Parterre garden, formal landscaping typically characterized by symmetrical plant beds divided by paths. Beyond the garden is a panoramic view of Whittaker Lake, where there are two fountains.

A wooded landscape combined with formal gardens and a lakeside view set this home apart.
