Property description

This is your opportunity to spend a weekend on property at one of the most Historic and Private homes in Orange VA. This is the former residence of James Madison’s brother Ambrose Madison est 1783. The estate features 50+ acres of open fields and stream, 3 private ponds, walking trails, gorgeous sunset views and was a 2012 Virginia Garden Club Historic Garden Week featured home.
Come experience the country side in this modern guest cottage. Complete with full kitchen, 2 Bedrooms featuring a king size bed and 2 twin beds, 2 full bathrooms with tub, living room, screen in porch, patio, private parking, and media area with cable TV. Cottage will sleep four very comfortably, over 1000+ square feet.
Minutes from Woodberry Forest School and downtown Orange, 25 minutes from Charlottesville, UVA and Scott Stadium, this is an ideal setting for a private getaway. The property has a central location in the up and coming Virginia Wine region, quickly becoming the Napa Valley of the east coast. Property has great fishing in the private ponds, manicured grounds, potential for guided ATV rides, guided hunting, golf outings, and Wine Tours. The owners are local and can serve as great advisors and historians of the area there are many local museums, civil war battlefields, restaurants, and History.
Come enjoy the peace and tranquility of the country, while being minutes away from all the activities the area has to offer. Why stay in a hotel when you can take a step back in time and enjoy a timeless piece of American History.
