Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

Why the Owner Chose Boyce, VA, USA:
It offered us the chance to get away without having to travel far -- it's far enough way from the city but close enough if you need to go into the city!

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Blue Hill is nestled in a rural country setting BUT it's close to Winchester and Middleburg and lots of activities or just choose to stay at Blue Hill and relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility surrounded by nature and we are pet friendly. Blue Hill is also a great setting for receptions or weddings - please inquire about our wedding packages.
