                                  Year Purchased: 2005

                                  About: I grew up in England and in Connecticut and have lived in lots of places - but finally found the perfect spot here in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia! Wonderful color, every day is a new painting - the earth, the furrows, the planting, the harvest, the bright greens and soft blues of the mountains, all lit on fire by the dazzling sunsets.

                                  Why Madison:
                                  If you want a peaceful weekend, where you can stretch out - recharge - this is a great spot. Families with children love it because there is so much room for them to run and play, ride ponies, go hiking, fishing etc.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                                  When I look at the properties that are listed I do think this is a unique property. It is the setting, the views, the fact that it is not too remote, and that everything is here for you. Fresh vegetables, raspberries, fruit may be picked in the garden. Great apple orchard just down the road as well with a superb variety of apples.
