507 Rumford Rd, Fredericksburg, VA 22405


With scenic stairs down to the Rappahannock River, this is the rare and quietly tucked masterpiece you have been waiting for!

507 Rumford Road offers prime Stafford County in so many wonderful ways. The .5-acre homesite sits at the end of the road of the quaint River View at Tylerton community. Built in 2014, the home spans 2,600 finished square feet, four bedrooms, 2.5 baths and has an unfinished basement ready for your personal touches. In addition to the like-new residence, the land and views are the showstoppers here, folks.

On the land’s western edge are wooden stairs leading to a dock and private slice of the river. Through the years, the owners have enjoyed bald eagle, deer, beaver and even otter sightings nearby. On the history front, the house is near the Franklin’s Crossing portion of the river, which was vital in the 1863 Battle of Fredericksburg. In the words of the owners, “The dock is one of the most tranquil environments, where we can rejuvenate after a busy day.” Beyond the river retreat, Rumford Farm sits along its southern edge, providing a tranquil buffer. It’s common to see wild turkeys, deer, and more wildlife swirling by. For recreation lovers, McDuff Park is within a five-minute drive and has hiking trails and multiple dog parks. Further zooming in on the property, its back yard has a shed, stone patio, wrought-iron like fenced area and composite deck for peaceful lounging.

Out front, a paved driveway leads to its two-car garage with automatic door. Beyond your lush surroundings, the home site itself is a green and low-maintenance utopia. There is a charming front porch anchoring its front side. Inside the tan colonial with black shutters, you’ll find three bright and open levels. The main level is textbook open concept with virtually clear sight lines to the back yard space. Communal areas include a formal dining room, main level bath and massive family room that seamlessly flows to the kitchen. Highlights of the kitchen include cherry cabinetry, granite counter tops and stainless-steel appliances. Note the nine-foot ceilings throughout. Just off the kitchen is a bump out/sun room, perfect for eat-in dining or entertaining. The upstairs is carpeted, and the primary bedroom is huge (thanks to that bump out)! The primary’s ensuite bath includes a soaking tub, walk-in shower, granite counters and tile flooring. The remaining bedrooms are larger and share a full bath with double sink and tub/shower combo. Completing the upper level is a laundry room (machinery conveys!) with attic access. The unfinished, walk-up basement is primed for an additional bedroom and bath, should your heart desire. Beyond the home, numerous shopping and dining options as well as Downtown Fredericksburg are within minutes. Two commuter rail stations – Fredericksburg and Leeland Station – are less than three miles away, providing a seamless commute. Two I-95 exits (Routes 3 and 17) are within 15 minutes, too. Amid so many features, the owners of 507 Rumford Road will miss, “being with nature and the incredible views.” You simply must experience this home to believe it!
