Property description

Your own private retreat in the heart of Virginia wine country, with many of Virginia's best wineries within a half an hour drive. Property is 1 1/2 hours from DC and 1/2 hour from Charlottesville and UVA, with amazing views of the Blue Ridge Mountains in front and Thoroughfare Mountain behind. This beautifully renovated farmhouse features 5 bedrooms, a sleeping loft, and 1 other sleeping area making it ideal for family reunions, or adult retreat. Easily accessible but totally private on 85 rolling and wooded acres with a gorgeous pool, pond and hot tub. Not another house in sight!
2 Large living spaces with all new upholstered furniture both with televisions, a separate study and enormous screened in porch perfect for dining or sleeping on the day beds. All beautifully furnished and appointed with antiques and high end furnishings . What sets us apart are our amazing views in every direction, rolling fields, mountains in front and mountain behind. Along with our high end amenities not usually found in a rental property. Fully equipped chef;s kitchen, down comforters and pillows on beds. We provide everything you need for our weekend guests except your food. Firewood, propane for grill, all hot tub chemicals and all cleaning and dish-washing supplies. Beds made and bath and hot tub/pool towels.
For our weekly guests we provide all of the above except for cleaning supplies.
As our many guests have experienced this large home has it all, space to be together and space to be alone.The 40 foot living holds a large family for watching football or movies. The french dining tables slides out to seat 18. When togetherness becomes too much, retreat to the front porch, sit on the bench by the pond, swing in the hammock or hang out by the pool, on the deck, or nap on the screened porch. We strive to ensure that our guest's experience is beyond their expectations at this extraordinary property.

Want a group activity, we provide a fabulous outdoor fire pit, croquet, lawn botche and soccer balls. Bring your clubs to hit golf balls into the pond.

If doing nothing proves too taxing, walk the 85 acres and meet the animals, gather fresh eggs from the barn. Check out the 1830's graveyard or walk in the corn field.

Should you decide to venture off property, visit one of the dozens of wineries in the area, horseback ride at Graves Mountain, hike to the lower or upper water falls on the white oak canyon trail or ride your bike along beautiful country roads.

Still not enough, come back to the property and light a bon fire in the fire pit, play boche, croquet and socccer.



Spend your days hiking the blue ridge, horseback riding, antiquing or visiting the many wineries in the area. Or simply lie by the pool or on the spectacular screen porch in total privacy with views in every direction. . Enjoy shooting stars and an unbelievable night sky from the hot tub and sunsets over the blue ridge from the front porch.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: A lover of all things beautiful especially homes and furnishings I have owned and operated Random Harvest, a high end home furnishings business in the NYC and Dc area for over 30 years.

Why the Owner Chose Charlottesville:
We searched for years to find the right combination of easy to get to and that peaceful feeling of knowing you are truly away from it all. This property had unsurpassed views in literally every direction with total privacy. Alas the house was a mess but with such great bones we could not help to want to bring it beyond what it had become.
