This peaceful and pastoral residence is situated amidst the Rapidan estate area in beautiful Orange County. Designed by the late Thomas W.S. Craven, A.I.A of Johnson, Craven, & Gibson of Charlottesville, this well-appointed residence rests on more than 37 rolling acres that can be especially admired from both the upper and lower gazebos, each offering a unique vantage point of the land. The property is surrounded by mature hardwoods, extensive landscaping, and predominantly open land for cultivation and grazing. Bring the horses! The property boasts a spacious loft barn with 2 box-stalls, tack room, feed room, run-in shed, automatic waterers, and fenced paddock.
Quality and visual appeal are both hallmarks of this home. You will notice the use of Flemish bond bricklaying with grapevine tooling throughout the brick exterior walls and eye-catching basket weave patterned bricks detailing the rear patio. Open the front door and immediately feel welcome; the interior exudes warmth & boasts large proportional rooms to include four working fireplaces. The 9-plus foot ceilings on the first floor, and the 8 foot ceilings on second floor enhance the breathability throughout this sprawling Cape Cod where entertainment and tranquility can both be appreciated at their fullest.
